Sedesen Fine Imports

Rifles, Enamel Artworks, Data Records, and Curios of Mrrshan Origin

With the opening of Mrrshan markets, the products of an entirely alien tradition of arts and culture now can be brought to the Narestan consumer, and Sedesen Fine Imports is very pleased to offer a selection of Mrrshan consumer items to its customers.


Mrrshan personal armaments are products of a tradition of deep craftsmanship and dedication to quality. Even the simplest and cheapest models we have imported, if simple in design, sport excellent accuracy at all effective ranges and are fine items for the dedicated marksman. More elaborate examples of the craft exhibit hand-customised components, engraving, and inlay to create weapons that are themselves one-of-a-kind works of art.

Enamel Art

A long tradition in the dominant Mrrshan culture of decorative art is of decorative enamel plates set into the walls of dwellings. The vivid colors and striking scenes depicted help provide a window into a culture very different from our own.

[image: An enamelled ceramic plate, about a foot on a side, done in bold colors with stylised forms, depicting a Mrrshan in metal helmet and metal-reinforced leathers, plunging a spear into the throat of a shaggy beast larger than he is, with long claws and teeth. The claws and teeth are very white, and the blood flowing from the spear wound very red.]

Data Records

A sampling of the literature, music, and images of famous artworks and architecture of Mrrshan history are available for study and enjoyment. The library of translated literary works is still limited, but self-study courses for Mrrshan languages are also available.
