The Old Empire is an ancient empire that once ruled much of the Eastern Lands, including Tai-tastigon.[2][3] Given that they built Tai-tastigon, and their capital was Tai-than, the Old Empire presumably founded (or at least renamed) all the Tai cities, Tai-abendra, Tai-sondre, Tai-weir and Tai-tarosoloff.


  1. God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 5: Winter Days" — " 'I've heard that there's another even larger Kencyr temple to the south, in the ruins of Tai-than.' He talked a great deal about this lost city, the great southern capital of the Old Empire, whose decaying towers no man had seen in half a millennium. "
  2. God Stalk, Book I: Tatters of Dusk, "Chapter 2: The House of Luck-Bringers" — " 'Ever since Tai-tastigon was built back in the days of the Old Empire,' "
  3. God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 5: Winter Days" — " 'Do you know what the oldest building in Tai-tastigon is? […] That temple of yours. As far as I can tell, it was here before the city walls went up, before the Old Empire was established,' "
