InternationalErquens international affairs are a little tricky as a lot of the information is based on older accounts on what has happened as a lot of issues are just closed up or never talked about by the rulers of Erquen. What is known is that they are generally friendly with everyone but the Halfkin. they mainly foucs on international trade as they control pretty much the only trade route from one coast to the other that is generally safe.
Aguslasting wars with them caused a lot of damage to Elven kind and the stability of nature and life on axil in the eastern part of the continent. The fact that they created living beings with souls and enslaved them was devastating to their relationship. Most elves distrust or dislike half-kin for that reason
Warhelmthe relationship between elves and dwarves is generally neutral/positive and friendly. They never have really had a quarrel with one another and find joy in similar things between craft, drink and the value of sentient life
Algaricthe relationship between the giant and brutish kin of Algaric and Erquen has always been a little rocky but Erquen did fight for the right for Algaric to continue the magic that Algaric practices in the courts of Solcau winning the rights for their peoples. these two groups often have nature magic in common and both enjoys the luxury that it brings.
BaloxBalox is a athorn in Erquens side and they have never had a friendly relationship. They make the most profit off goods going from east to west as Algaric or Rensal has to pass through their territories first and it also hapers trade with erquen itself. Erquen hasnt sucked up their terriotry because their god deems it a bad act, as well as the land, is cursed by the hlaf breeds that live here according to high priests and druids
RensalRensal and erquen have a decent relationship as Rensal provides alot of goods and resources that can never really be gotten anywhere else. With Erquens deep pockets they are able to conduct trade easily. and the animal-esc folk that live here are beloved by clerics and druids.
InternalInternally Erquen is trying to remove the chains set apon it by solcau as they are now just a tiny dying nation there is no need to have them around influencing the government anymore. The time for Erquens rise to prominence is now and they are in just a situation to do so.

-Connection taking care of and governing the eastermost territories of Erquen
-Dealing with rampant monsters and beasts in the forest that kill travelers
