Mentralin

The continent of Mentralin spans from the eastern fring of the Frostwind Ocean to the Golden Sea that separates it from it's neighbour Al'Mahun.   In former times, before the Veil, it was roamed by nomadic tribes in the west and the vast empire of the Myou'Jin who directed the fates of the continent with great wisdom and ancient magic from the southern and eastern parts. Since these times the content was reknown for the Black Citadel as the centre for the worlds arcane wisdom.   In more recent times the Mentralian Kings ruled over the largest part of the continent until the raise of the second Temerian Empire absored many previously autonomous kingdoms into its provinces. The northwest is still mostly free, separated into either the Free Cities Federation or as part of the largely barbaric reaches of the north. The last remains of the once glorious Myou'Jin can be found within the Kyourin Shogunate, with it's inhabitants surviving in their poisenous environment only by striking ancient pacts with degenerated Daemon Lords, and the people of Lao-Shan, who favour wisdom, and peace over hatred and war.   Apart from housing the most reknown academy for sorcerers, the Black Citadel, Mentralin also is the centre of two of the larges groups of faith prevailing in Seiki. The city-state of Carintia, on the western shores, is the centre of the Carintian Church, where the High Father preaches of the sacrifice of the gods gone, while the Great Pagoda in Lao-Shan is the centre of the balanced believes of the Shando.

    Gathering of the Myou'Jin Tribes
    Founding

    Until this time the indigenous people of Mentralin, the Myou'Jin, have lived in small distributed bands of mostly hunter-gatherer societies. As more and more of these groups settle down and settle into pacts with local spirits, their communities grow. This marks the beginning of singular bands to form larger tribes, that change into an agricultural society.   The oldest Myou'Jin houses still trace their lineage back to these first tribes.

    Metaphysical / Paranormal event

    While trying th settle in the Old Wood on the eastern part of the content, the elder Myou'Jin house Ryuki closes a pact with the spirits who live in the old forest. It was named after the location it was closed at: Ashenvale. A beautiful valley filled with ash trees.   The pact made Demetrea, the eldest of the spirits, become a god lateron and appear as rival to Shenron.   The original conditions of the pact are lost, but it allowed the members of house Ryuki to settle in harmony with the old woody and mountains. Also it was the base for the spiritblood offspring of the Ryuki clan and the spirits, who made it possible for the spiritkin of the Old Wood to survive the raise of the Veil without losing their sanity.
