Of the Tauredain Tribes
The Royal Tribe of Falastaur with the capital of Otoch Kaah is the center of power in the North-East of the jungles. Due to it´s proximity to the northern parts of Far Harad and the shores of Belegaer it has always prospered by trading with its neighbours, such as the Moredain and the Númenorean and Black Númenorean colonies. Those trading relationships, however, cooled down after the doom of the ancient Tauredain empire . In recent years Cizin_al_Korth has been aiming to revive those old ties and Falastaur is once again the dominant tribe of the North.

The Tribe of Taurind with the capital of Actun Kaah, is near the center of the Tauredain Empire. Ages ago when the area was being settled, a large cave system was discovered that lead deep into the earth, with walls containing many ores, and rooms shimmering from floor to ceiling with precious gems. Soon nearly all the locals lived, built, and worked in the caves, save for a few farmers on the surface who toiled in the poor soil, and the city of Actun Kaah was born. Taurind has since become the main mining province and a trade center of the Empire, and its mineral wealth and smiths are unrivaled in the far south. These blessings come with a curse however, for not nearly enough food can be grown to supply it’s populous, so most of the province relies on trade for food.
