In the Historical Atlas you mention that the people of Qaraus, like the Cuezi, had early contact with the ilii. But this area, unlike Eretald, seems to remain fairly backward throughout Almean history. Why is this?

Mark responds:

Lack of rivals, mostly. Though Qaraumia is temperate and fertile, it's not very suitable for grazing, so the Lenani people to the west were never interested in it. The Dhekhnami weren't interested because there weren't enough Qaraus. So the Qaraus were pretty much left alone, without anything much pressuring them to advance.
