The Lands Beyond

map

Beyond the relatively refined Ceourlish Islands, many people groups live in darkness and seclusion.

Akino

Although some Ceorlish explorers have attempted to make contact with the people of Akino, they have never been seen again, and the nation has largely remained a mystery to them. A large iron wall encompasses the Western shores of Akino, separating the outsiders from the closely knit communities.

Akino is based off of medieval China.

Glihema Isles

Small group of islands between Krataria and Boarlone.

The ancient civilization of the Glihemans fights off outsiders for years, but is eventually defeated by King Derik of Krataria, a year before he conquers Boarlone. They are forced into a feudal system, with Kratarian lords placed over them.

The Glihema isles are loosely based off of medieval South American islands, discovered by European explorers.

Planauq

The Ceourlish first came into contact with the people of Planauq back in King Theobald’s conquering days. Having dutifully paid Krataria tribute for over fifty years, they eventually refuse. With the rise of the conqueror, Batsaikhan, the people of Planauq risk the anger of the Kratarians, and use their yearly tribute to appease the Jautouwahans.

The sand dunes of the vast Planauq nation are based off of medieval Arabia, but mixed with a non-aggressive approach to existence.

Walvoziing

Walvoziing is the last nation in the lands beyond to be destroyed before the Jautouwahans reached the Ceourlish Islands.

Jautouwah

Jautouwah is the home country of the nomadic Jautouwahan people. The Jautouwahans move camp every month, traveling around the country to find green pasture for their sheep. They adapt well to any climate, forage off the land, and train golden eagles to hunt wolves in the mountains.

During the rise of Batsaikhan, the people were driven to expand their borders and increase their wealth. So they traveled in tents across the kingdoms, burning down city after city, accepting tribute from those who would give it, and plundering profusely.
They became a great nation as they went, feared and respected by all, and wealthy beyond measure.
 
After the utter defeat of the Jautouwahans, under the allied hand of multiple leaders of the Ceourlish islands and the power of God, a small remainder returned to their homeland, where they lived in peace and worshiped the God of the Ceourlish.
Centuries later, missionaries reached this land, and explaining the gospel to them, it was received with great joy.
 
Jautouwah is based off of medieval Mongolia.
