-Physically, the Eastern Kingdoms are nearly inaccessible from Rang. Their borders with the [[zioth:​place:​ice_sea|Ice Sea]] are trecherous ​due to rocks and ice, so there are very few ports. The border with Rang is an impassible mountain range. And on the side of the [[zioth:​place:​great_sea|Great Sea]], the mountains continue, close to the sea, for hundreds of miles. There are small port towns nestled into the mountains, but these are dissociated from the Eastern Kingdoms both culturally and politically.+Physically, the Eastern Kingdoms are nearly inaccessible from Rang.

-Some suspect that the Eastern Kingdoms maintain their silence because of Rang's reputation of becoming friendly with its neighbors, then conquering or absorbing them. There is a good piece of evidence for this theory -- what limited trade there was ceased when Ostmark, the dutchy ​immediately to the west of the mountains, was absorbed into Rang.+Some suspect that the Eastern Kingdoms maintain their silence because of Rang's reputation of becoming friendly with its neighbors, then conquering or absorbing them.
