EMPEROR OF THE JADE THRONE
The youthful human Emperor of the Jade Throne, Cheng Xiao, also known as the Ruler of All Under Heaven, presides over the mighty kingdom of Tiangao, situated far to the east of Parsantium at the end of the Silk Road. The Emperor battles criminal tongs inside his borders, as well as the bloody raids of the Gnoll Khan on Tiangaon trade caravans.
“Remember that I rule this kingdom with the mandate of Heaven, mother. Just as jade is not polished without rubbing, an Emperor is not perfected without trials.”
