“Once home of the famous Altwalders, now as good as extinct.”
It was as if the mindset of most Races changed somewhat with the shaping of the world and further with the 1st Cataclysm. Through time, the inhabitants of south-western Utari fended off countless raids from Naldar pirates. Remas, Quigly and Hokul even saw a couple of raids by Invaders, from the Outlands. And as the Sun began to dry the lands out, famine struk.
The eastern countries of Bilza and Fril, on the other hand, traded heavily with Tribes from Findon and Midgard. Thus, these areas grew far richer than most Utari, and the difference in the living standards of rural people was clearly visible.
Due to invasions, raids, and struggles for survival due to poverty or internal strife, people were not immune to violence and the use of fists and blades. Which, for the tribes of Utari, is a good thing, as it insured its independence from any foreign control, up until they saw the value in The Realm and joined it. The peace it brought finally lifted the general wealth and living conditions for all to the living terms of Bilza. It even led to members of Other Races being seen travelling the paths, roads, and town streets more often.
Even after The Great Invasion, the island still consists of four Countries, but these are currently all split into several tribes and Organisations grasping for land, cities, and population to tax. It’s such a mess that we can’t describe it with proper accuracy.
Only World location… where Altwalders breathe…
