The Pirates Of Atlantis
Vastam is a long “strip” of grasslands between the Altalai Mountains and the sea. It’s home to a nomadic people, the Vasta, known for their skill at riding horses and herding the semi-domesticated sheep that are the foundation of the land’s economy. A Vasta man’s days are occupied by hunting, herding, skirmishing with rival clans, and similar pursuits. Twice yearly the Vasta assemble at great conclaves to trade, conduct business, resolve disputes without bloodshed, and arrange marriages.
The Lemurians conquered Vastam easily, since few of the clans are willing to work together for long, and even as a united people the Vasta couldn’t have held off the Lemurian army. However, Vastam has little of value to Lemuria, so the Lemurians are content to leave the Vasta to their traditional lifestyle provided they pay a monthly tribute of sheep to the Governor (currently Gelledan of House Felv). Since the Vasta do not build cities (or even permanent villages), the Lemurians constructed Governor’s Tower (actually more of a keep) at a defensible position in the hills. Other than occasional patrols to ensure all is well, the Lemurians stay in the Tower and hope to be re-assigned to a better posting soon.
