Judging by its location, The Kingdom of Sentinel could be nothing other than a merchant power: it is situated on the northwestern hills of Hammerfell overlooking the Iliac Bay. The land is known for being inhospitable, which has kept Sentinel's population relatively low. It is bordered by Myrkwasa to the southwest, by the Alik'r Desert to the southeast, and by Antiphyllos and Ayasofya to the east. The uninhabited isle of Cybiades lies off the coast to the north. The Selenu clan is the predominant vampire bloodline in the region. Sentinel was once home to a gladiatorial team known as the Deathbringers.[OOG 1]
The main street of her capital (the city of Sentinel) is a great market leading from the docks to the front gates. It is a major population center for all of Hammerfell. The city is an exotic retreat for the nobility of Daggerfall and Wayrest, who delight in the exotic cooking, craftsmanship, and bizarre plays. The knights of the Order of the Candle are the official protectors of the realm. On the 11th of Last Seed every year, the people of Sentinel give thanks for the harvest in the Koomu Alezer'i holiday.
Sentinel began as an outpost for the first Redguard colonists of Hammerfell, known as the Forebears, to serve as a base for their battles against the Bretons and expanded from there. Individuals of the two races in the general region often harbor great animosity for each other due to their historical conflicts, most notably the War of Betony. The Orcs have been another historical enemy; the people of Sentinel have fought them and participated in campaigns against them since the First Era.
Sentinel gained more territory than any other region from the Warp in the West; the forces of Queen Akorithi ended up controlling all of the other regions of Hammerfell surrounding the Iliac Bay with the exception of Mournoth, making the ruler of Sentinel one of the most powerful individuals in all of Tamriel.
