The Imaskari were the citizens of Imaskar, the ancient empire now swallowed by the Raurin Desert and the Plains of Purple Dust. Today they are vilified by the Mulan, who are the descendants of the slaves the Imaskari artificers abducted from other worlds using the mighty portals they crafted.
At its height, the Imaskari Empire stretched from the Endless Wastes to the Golden Water, and from the Alamber Sea to the edge of what is now Kara-Tur. Ruins of their cities can still be found on the Plains of Purple Dust.
The Imaskari spoke Roushoum, a precursor of such languages as Durpari, the Rauric family (including Chessentan, Mulhorani, and Untheric), Raumvira, and the various dialects of the Tuigan. The Imaskari alphabet has completely fallen out of contemporary use; it is only found inscribed on a few ancient artifacts and the walls of Imaskari ruins.
