History and Relations
The Ladari Dynasty has a rough history. The land was forcibly occupied by the growing Dunian Empire from the west since 200AL. A general from Yinchu began to oppose the Dunians in western Yyele and take back lands, eventually coming to found the Ladari Dynasty around 700AL. The Oolu Empire was the next force to invade, and they conquered most of Ladari before being forced to retreat, but as they did the Bandiao Dynasty took the northern Blood Mountains which were previously Ladaruo lands. The ethnic groups are mostly Teman and Batur. They are distrusting toward Incidu and Yeves, neutral toward Apszhes, friendly with Yinchu, and tense with Bandiao. They mainly export gold, bronze, timber, and horses. Goldflaked folk are rare here.
Military and Art
Ladaruo military forces are known for their armoured cavalry, and focus on mobile warfare, keeping their position shifting and adopting other similar strategies from Batur. Common architectural features include curved eaves, watchtowers, and freestanding fortresses, and common artforms include plays, festivals, and weaving.
