A Kosvu archer and rider battle a group of Mohan warriors in the highland jungles of the Island of Paritwa.
The Kosvu Empire was involved in a number of wars of conquest against the kingdoms and chiefdoms of the Island of Paritwa (I use Island in Intervanian standards, Paritwa is around 3,000 miles across). The Mohan are a kingdom existing in the highland regions of the far north of the Island. The Mohan territory was of strategic importance to the Kosvu as it held rich deposits of obsidian for weapon-making and strong, tall tress with wood suitable for building ships, houses and weapon handles. The eventual conquest of the Mohan would be made even sweeter in the future when metal weaponry was invented as the mountains of Paritwa hold rich deposits of copper, nickel, zinc and iron, the Northern mountian region where the Mohan are found are also the only place in all of Intervania where the plant Rosidium grows, whose powerful root extract can be added to molten brass to form the compound bomite which is many times more flexible and stronger than even the finest steel.

Asha Le Tutse's army faces off against the army of the orc king Bahrumyit Maluka-Shavnet of Sulydia. Sulydia was the first and smallest state that Asha faced on her journey to unify the entirety of the Amasona Archipelago under her banner, its king Bahrumyit Maluka-Shavnet came into power just 15 years before his final battle with Asha, seizing the crown of Sulydia from other warlords vying for the leadership gap left by king Bazlan Myriduth-Xachkal, who had no heirs or a queen to rule after his death. The rule of Bahrumyit was one marked by total war against the other Amasonan states, most notably the Queendom of Wahrtaq, this total war campaign, however, backfired as it left the armies of Sulydia depleted of troops and the country on the verge of bankruptcy, easily taken by Asha and her followers. Bahrumyit would die in his final battle with Asha, struck down by her sword in a charge, his attendant running in fear at the last second.
