Beyond the relatively refined Ceourlish Islands, many people groups live in darkness and seclusion.
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.
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.
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 is the last nation in the lands beyond to be destroyed before the Jautouwahans reached the Ceourlish Islands.
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.
