Civilization reduced to Savagery
Landlocked into the central plains of the world, few give Machang any thought anymore. Those that travel towards what once was the breadbasket of the Empire, finds empty blasted prairies, the horizon stretching ahead without end. Those that go further, find flows of liquid fire, cutting off any further travel.
The people of Machang, best encompass the term thrown around in other nations without true understanding of what it means. Barbarians. Once, the gentle farmers of Shinka, now they survive through raiding, tearing, and cannibalizing each other. Many, barely even aware that there is a world outside this waste.
To reach Machang is to press on past flows of magma and seemingly long empty land. To meet the people- is to invite savagery, best prove one’s worth before all be taken from you.
