Jade Culture (1.2)
Those of the Jade Culture can be found on the east of the Chering continent (which lies south and east of the Dawn Lands with many small islands in between). At one time this continent had several portals that once led to ancient China, Japan, and southeast Asia on Earth. There is a large mountain range between the portals so the settlers that came through these portals had little contact with one another at first. The peoples on the continent have grown and expanded over the many centuries. Making contact with outside nations and cultures. The continent has now settled into an uneasy peace as they start to explore the world of Shiandria. The Jade culture does not have a standard or unified military tradition, but many of the You Xia warriors (also known as Knight Errant) can be found here.
