Aramacänten (Mountain kingdom)

The Mountain Kingdom is the main geopolitic force on the Serme Mountains. It is ruled by the Ara people.


The highest ruler of the Ara is the king. Other high offices are held by the relatives of the king. The next king will be the most competent male relative of the former king, not necessarily the son.


Dragons.   Mines and excellent goldsmiths.


the Ara Kingdom started as a small country centered around Isünókul, which according to the tradition was founded as early as 200 BH. in the early 400's AFS the Black Years' Plague affected the whole continent. The region around Lake Ülüwerä, then ruled by Saial city states, was hit hardest in the 430s. The Ara Kingdom was less affected because then they had less trade relationships outside the mountains. They took advantage of the weakened state of their neighbours and managed to counquer the most of Yamenawa by 435 AFS. Then they turned their attention to the coast, launching an invasion on the Ardawána peninsula, culminating in the siege of Tášá 436 AFS. However, they were forced to retreat and much of the area returned back to the Tasalian control.

Before that the main trade routes to West had lead through the Southern path and connected to Silford by rivers. When Yamenawa was united, the Ara could take the advantage of the faster route through Isünókul straight to the coast. This new traderoute lead to the diminishing importance of the trade through the West Island, and was one reason for the fall of the Faren kingdom there.

Mountain Kingdom is multiethnic and many peoples have fallen under the power of the current empire. The largest ethnicities are Ara people and Saial people.


Their main territory is the central highlands of the Serme Mountains. They also control many settlements in the lower mountain valleys, which are very important for the producction grain and other crops that don't grow on the highlands, as well as for trade posts.
