At the dawn of time, the Titans blessed the earth itself of Shalum, hiding away inside a secret tomb Shalin, the Scion of the Hills. A battle two hundred turns ago cracked open the earth, and Shalin poured forth, slaying everyone on the battleground. He marched to Shalatar, once an action capital but now a measely level 1 city, and claimed it as his own. Raising the Lion Banner, he proclaimed his nation of Shalum to be born, and the lands around it to be his by birthright.
Shalum is a nation built for war. Every unit popped hopes to die in the service of the God-King Shalin. Their national weapons are the khospesh and the chariot. Unlike most sides, Shalum has a unique view on death. They believe units are repopped based on how they acted in a previous life. If they die gloriously in battle, they may become lords, but if they flee in disgrace, they will certainly return as twolls or lowly servitors. Shalin, being only recently brought into this world from stasis, is believed to be the only soul under its first iteration. Being a God-King, he is what they all strive to be.
Shalum's politics take on two distinct sides. Shalin is confident in his armies, and their ability to conquer the world if he wished it, but he also knows that many oppose him. He conserves his strength, using it where best suited, prefering diplomacy and subterfuge if they net the same results. He will join the battle if it comes, but he does not think of it as the only or first option.
Shalum's production centers mostly around grains and grazing lifestock. Their hills are well suited to goats and sheep. Shalin is looking to expand their metallurgy skills and make better weapons, but has had limited success.
