The Distant Grassland
We’re not a folk who take pleasure in waging war. Better to collaborate and share these vast open fields with our neighbours and herds than to spill blood for needless causes. This land itself, there’s just something soothing about it.Ougadiai is a quiet region known for its grasslands, vast forests, and rugged highlands in the southwestern corner of Pekkola. Home to the Pijari, it is a place far removed from the troubles of most of the world. The horselords that roam its great plains are an isolationist bunch and know little of what goes on beyond their endless stretches of land. Trade with other Pijari regions does occur, but seldom do their merchants go beyond the lands of their brethren. While the natives of this region enjoy a quiet and peaceful life, war still happens, although the conflicts tend to be less devastating than in the rest of Pekkola.
As much as we try to live a relatively quiet life, our neighbours have noticed us and unfortunately they aren’t quite as warmhearted as us. Do we let them subjugate us peacefully to avoid bloodshed, or should we shed a few drops of blood first before our inevitable surrender?
The Pijari are a semi-nomadic people renowned for their mastery of horseback riding, archery, and mounted combat. They are native to Ougadiai, Vaijia, and Vuonampi
