The one Mansion that's inhabited, Ishterebinth, is in the far northwest, and cut off from the human world. In the Three Seas, Nonmen are effectively thought of as extinct because they tend to avoid humans, especially after Cil-Aujas (one of only two Mansions to survive the first invasions of Men) was destroyed in the aftermath of the Apocalypse.

* DarkFantasy: This is an extremely dark, brutal and cynical fantasy series.

* DarkFantasy: This The series is an extremely dark, brutal unrelenting in its darkness. The world is in a constant struggle involving religious zealots, insane immortals, ruthless sorcerers and cynical fantasy series.[[ItMakesSenseInContext intergalactic sex-demons]]. WarIsHell, and is described in horrific detail. Plagues, infighting, wide-spread slavery, casual cruelty and rape are so common they become background scenery. The setting's already been brutalized in the past by a world-ending apocalypse that came dangerously close to driving humans to extinction, and all the warning signs for the second are already here.\\
Humanity's best chance of survival rests in the hands of a manipulative, pitiless sociopath Übermensch who reads the emotions and minds of people with disturbing ease. He's the only one who has the single-minded focus to manipulate the self-interest and infighting of the population into one common goal and prepare for the return of [[EldritchAbomination Mog-Pharau, the No-God]]. The sorcerers of the School of Mandate, who are aware of the Unholy Consult's existence by way of dreaming of the First Apocalypse every night, are derided and mocked by society as madmen who have damned their souls. [[FromBadToWorse Additionally]], later books state outright [[spoiler:that the threat of damnation is completely true, and thousands are doomed to suffering in a literal interpretation of the Christian hell]], and those that remain are in for a full-scale CosmicHorrorStory.

** '''The Mysunsai'': A mercenary School that can be found throughout the Three Seas, selling their services to the highest bidder. Though not as powerful as the Scarlet Spires or as well-connected as the Imperial Saik, and often looked down upon by other sorcerers as little better than prostitutes, they are nonetheless a large and wealthy school.
