Culture and Locations

Yinchu is a large dynastic kingdom in central Yyele. It is a feudal monarchy ruled by a tengan king, and its biggest religion is Ghaojism, which encourages followers to revere and worship their ancestors, who are seen as divine and pure. Yinchuo are known for their hospitality, seemingly unable to decline a stranger in need. Their capital is Suoma. It is believed that Byo Da's Tomb lies somewhere in the Northern Plains.

Yinchu is mostly temperate, with temperate grassland known as the Northern Plains further inland and montane forest up the Selseng Hills. The southern border is made from the Goldwater in the Golden Basin, and the Tido River makes the northern border. The Chata River flows through Xinsui. Yinchu's shores meet both the Bay of Teman and the Gold Sea.

History and Relations

This land was mostly occupied by the Dunian Empire since 200AL, but in 600AL Dama Mang erupts and devastates the land, halting the advance of the Dunians. Seeing an opportunity, a local war general discovers an ancestor of the old Yinchu Dynasty and gathers support for him, reviving the kingdom officially around 650AL. The major ethnic groups in this area are Teman and Batur. They are friendly with Ladari, Porosoea, and Bandiao, and are competitive with Ho Da. They mainly export grain, silk, gold, porcelain, and Ladarean Orange pigment. The Trade#Noble Consortium has an office in Ruipin and controls the trade of silk in Yinchu and Bandiao. Goldflaked folk are rare here.

Military and Art

Yinchu's most famous warriors are the angsar, an ancient order of elite soldiers donned in gold and seemingly possessing magic power. Despite their hospitable natures, Yinchuo are very defensive of their borders and display their power to would-be competitors. Common architectural features include curved eaves, multi-tiered roofs, and atriums, and common artforms include philosophy, paper-craft, and literature.
