The Hidari Wars
The scattered islands are rarely ever settled on by either Humans, or Yokai. Very few settlements exist within these islands since they cannot withstand large populations, and generally humanoids tend to go in groups. This isn’t to say that some trading villages haven’t been set up on some of the various unmarked islands of the land. Those who set up shop on one of these islands generally want to make great trade agreements with those outside, and often times are the ones who bring the culture of the Mizari Islands together. It is because of those brave enough to live on such small islands that the culture hasn’t shifted, and changed between every island to make a unique area in every sect of the Mizari Islands. Luckily this means that the people are generally easier to control, maintain, and integrate with one another like this.
While rare trading posts can be set up on even the smallest of isles. Many of the Scattered Islands are over one square mile though, and don’t have to make such an effort to set up such a trading post.
