Ruler: King or Queen of Vek
Vek is the westernmost city of those considered to be part of the Lowlands. For decades, possibly centuries, it has warred with Sarn, and more recently turned its vengeance on Collegium. Possibly the most traditionalist of all the ant city-states, the inhabitants hate Sarn for being foreign ants, but despise Collegium for being inferior but somehow still undefeated.
Ambassadors from the Wasp Empire visit the city to persuade its rulers to mount an attack on Collegium while the Wasp armies keep Sarn busy.
