Imagine a typical fantasy world. Really, any will do. Elves, dwarves, paladins on horseback, all trying to save the world from a great evil. Now imagine the evil won.
This particular world of fantasy is now called Rumah Kedua. Many years ago a man called the Reptile King conquered the land, and drove out most civilized people, in a long period called The War of RetreatThe people, on the brink of extinction, prayed to their long quiet gods. The gods gave them a chance, for that was all they could do. A choice. Retreat to the seas or be swallowed by the Reptile King’s armies.
Five-thousand years have passed since the civilized people made that choice, and it has changed Rumah Kedua. The Reptile King conquered the land, and obtained near-godhood. But like everyone who is not truly immortal, he died. The broken and conquered people of the world were not evil, but they were lawless, and the land remained a chaotic jumble of tribes and small city-states. The people of the sea adopted a very ordered lifestyle, imposed on them by their gods, their leaders, and their cruel savior, the sea.
The Seagoing peoples are comparable to rennaissance to industrial revolution and are usually lawful The Landgoing Peoples compare to bronze age to middle ages Asia or Europe, although there are many similarities to prehistoric times, owing largely to the presence of dinosaurs and ice age flora and fauna.
