First Kingdom Riichna History
It is a splendorous testament to our innate superiority over all other species that riichnaim alone are able to give an account of our genesis that is not fabrication or fantasy. Mojim wallowed in despondency sprung from their abject simplicity as we crossed oceans and constructed great things they can only now begin to vaguely emulate.
-Jachkoldotaim Juranal of Thyde
Riichnas maintain their culture originated on the continent of Thigain, to the west of Vanil, where they “came to be” (voctaur) near the place that would become their current capital, Jevyma. They expanded throughout the continent and colonized its entirety during this time, establishing a number of cities including Tylrid, Ribym, and Hakona. Due to discrepancies in the dating systems between riichnas and Vanilli, it is uncertain when they first expanded to the southwest of their homeland and established footholds on the eastern edge of the continent of Thea. It was here that riichnas first encountered humans (though ones quite different in physical appearance and temperment from Vanilli).
The great empire was but in its fledgling stages, though it was still able to repel the few riichna explorers sent there. Rather than expend resources on annexing the continent’s poplation, the riichnas focuses their efforts eastwards and after a number of years arrived at the southern coast of Vanil in the year 182, marking the end of Vanil’s Second Kingdom.
