The youngest realm in Isilendor, Akasuna is known for its harsh and dry environment. The days are hot and the nights cold. Sandstorms are a common occurance in the heat. To the east near Braitheld it rains a bit more, which allows for oasis' to grow.

The people

Thanks to the harsh climate of Akasuna's desert, it was long the least populated of the four realms of Isilendor. Yet, the people of Akasuna are hardy people, having grown up and survived the sands.
The first known people of Akasuna where the Airakesh, but over time others started to migrate to the realm. First it was those from Delvheim, then Braitheld, and lastly Eldathreans found their way to the realm too. More than any other realm, Akasuna is a mishmash of people from various origins.
After the Great War Akasuna experienced a large increase in migration and their population rose.

Due to the harshness of the lands, the Akashi are generally known for their resourcefulness and adaptability, though somewhat solitary and independant. Yet, they are also a daring, inquisitive and freethinking people that have made the desert land their home. And accepted of those that came to make the Akasuna their home too.
