The Ashem'em District was an industrial district constructed during the reign of King Me'emen. It opened in 5500 DE as the Uran District. The district was renamed in 5541 DE to honor King Me'emen's son, Ashem, a Healer who had died the previous year from a disease caught while investigating a new age for safety.
Near the time of the fall of D'ni, former Guildmaster Kadish used part of Ashem'en as a site to test the strengh of pellets, developed and manufactured in Er'cana, which he used to solidify his claim to be the prophesied "Grower".
The Ashem'en District is currently in restoration phase five, awaiting approval as of January 21, 2007.
