Heresh is a kingdom on the continent of Thallan on the planet Ashan, ruled by necromancers. It lies near the sea, close to the island of Obiira. It is bordered by the lands of the Orcs and those of the Holy Griffin Empire, as well as the lands of the Wizards. Its capital city is known as Nar Ankar.

Heresh is all Ashan-based Might and Magic games' answer to Heroes III/Might and Magic VII's Deyja and Heroes IV's Nekross as the nation of the Necromancer sects of each of the three planets.

Background history

The Seven Cities would come to banish the practitioners of necromancy after a civil war broke out between the cities, and this ultimately forced the necromancers to flee to the inhospitable valley that would later become known as Heresh.

Years passed and the necromancers began a war against the new kingdom of the magi, known as the Silver League in an event that would come to be known as the War of the Broken Staff. They would come to lose this war however, and ultimately Heresh woul be invaded by the Silver League's militia.

During the reign of Queen Isabel and the era of Queen Isabel's War as well as the years to follow, the Deathlords of Heresh would become despondent and lazy, not caring about the war with the exception of the necromancer Markal. Lord Arantir would later become one of the greatest necromancers to ever live, uniting the dominions of the various Deathlords under the Will of Asha to become the High Lord of Heresh. However it is unknown what happened to Heresh after Arantir's demise in Stonehelm.
