Legend of the Tiger Generals
The Black Tortoise Regent is the Guardian of Justice and the chosen protector of the northern continent of Ebonheim. Like the Blue Dragon Emperor, he is immortal, but prone to long slumbers. The Tortoise Regent is a calm, measured and sometimes stern guardian, the most serious and focused of the four. He oversees the 108 members of the Ebon Legion, those marked by the Tablets of Justice to carry the black star.
Ebonheim is the most industrial of the realms. Though it still has great swaths of natural beauty, it also has many cities built as living monuments to the glory of craftsmanship and civilization. Great quarries and massive foundries support the realm. Ebonheim has more paragons per capita whose abilities derive from mechanical, alchemical or enchanted works, either self-made, gifted or stolen.
