An island of fully human warrior-wizards that lies in the Pale Sea to the north of Melniboné. A priest-aristocracy led by Jagreen Lern, the Theocrat of Pan Tang, runs the country from its capital at Hwamgaarl.

Their people had little contact with outsiders and their priesthood sought to emulate the magical powers of Melniboné. They claim a kinship with the race of Mer-people. Their army is large and well disciplined, augmented by wizards and hunting tigers.

Their fleet is the best in the Young Kingdoms and they raid with little discrimination. Pan Tang is famed for its reflective, green obsidian. They export a shimmering emerald wine called Memory's Tears. The Pan Tang crest is that of a Merman.
