The Northern tribe MICHEG and the Eastern tribe IHWA, were somewhat united. The central region. MARHJA, a relatively peaceful and neutral land which eventually became the battleground. Many despots vied for rule and deceived each other for power and wealth. IHWA , the agrarian hub, with her fertile plains, often clashed with the livestock rich AHREZ. The industrious MICHEG, had always fought for the mineral rich lands of TEHN.

All territories were ruled by kings. Many lands were gained and lost throughout these conflicts. Often MARHJA was in the crossfire.
