The Cosmoscape Chronicles
Country Concept 2
This country will be a desert country to citizens that are not god-faring. They will live in ornately carved stone caves and chasms cut out of the sides of great valley cliffs – think of the Grand Canyon. They will get about flying on the backs of great giant hawks, of which they will have the highest reverence for. Unlike most nations, they will ban the worship of gods, instead they have a sort of secular worship of the Force of destiny. They will be great traders and merchants and be held in high regard as honest people all over seath, but will have a stigma of being intolerant of the gods. For some reason, their realm will be abandoned by most of the gods making divine casting less effective, and the presence of gods impossible; a perfect place for refuge for those running from divine retribution.
They will live relatively traditional lives, shunning the frivolities of Alsland and its traders, and providing alternate ways of trade that doesn’t involve the house of Tainling or Alsland. Their main trading partner will most likely be the dominion of suneye, as they too prefer to avoid alslandian merchants, although the citizens are beginning to demand their wares.
