Murraseth is a mysterious catfolk city-state[1] in southern Garund.[2] Murraseth is the largest catfolk settlement on Golarion, and the feline humanoids believe it to be their ancestral homeland.[3]

Murraseth is closely but informally allied with three other catfolk city-states, Frowiseth, Eserowaan and Ulemsaleth. These four cities have been allied for a very long time, enough so that most outsiders mistake them for a single nation with Murraseth as its capital. However, these cities are formally independent and each ruled by its own Council of Elect.[3]

The population of Murraseth is secretive and does not welcome visitors to the nation. Rumors tell about great hidden dangers in the the heart of Murraseth, but the city's residents often avoid talking about these rumors, and insist that their people can protect their nation from any danger.[4][2] The city-state is located in close proximity to the city of Anuli.[1]

History

Murraseth's territory lies over the site of an ancient catfolk nation that collapsed due to unknown causes long before the Earthfall. Many of the fallen nation's amurruns left Garund for the Valashmai Jungle afterwards. The catfolk returned to Garund during the Age of Darkness, during which they resettled the ancient nation's territory and established Murraseth under the rule of sister-queens.[5]

During the Age of Enthronement, the catfolk of Murraseth allied themselves with the Shory Empire and the derhii to combat demons and the Spawn of Rovagug. Murraseth underwent a period of instability at this point, during which the sister-queens abdicated in response to popular anger at their detachment from common needs. Multiple experimental governments rose and fell during this time, eventually culminating in the formation of the Council of Elect. Many catfolk left Murraseth at this time, and emigrated to Arcadia and Iobaria.[5]
