So, one of the "new" nations brought in by the Spellplague was the land of Abeiran genasi, the land of elemental extremes called Akan#363;l. At the "same time", Murghom had been accruing a number of very metropolitan dragon lordlings offering guidance, protection and not-killing-you to the cities and populace of the region. How does that even kind of square with the Akan#363;lians? They left a land ruled by tyrannical dragons and now are seeing the seeds of the same thing in front of their faces?

To say nothing with how fine Tymanther's dragonborn were about it. Distance aside that sounds like a recipe for constant hostility at least, open war at most. Though instead they fought with the genasi...because they were closer?

Did any of you do anything with that?

I don't believe much was written about the development of those nations in the "lost century", so you could go with tension if you think it's plausible and interesting. But I would point out that Murgh˘m and Akanűl are separated by about 1,000 miles, one large sea and a few empires. People from Akanűl would probably have lots of things to worry about in their new environment before thinking about messing with a distant nation.

never did anything with it, but bear in mind that for the dragonborn of Tymanther, they were suddenly cut off from all of their existing support. They had to build new cities (which granted they had magical aid). I'm sure they were upset to see Murghom... probably just as upset as they were to know of Laerakond when they were in Abeir... and just like when they were in Abeir they didn't attack just because they didn't like something.

I would imagine though that those two countries would not share dignitaries, nor conduct trade except through an intermediary. SOME of the dragonborn might travel there, but I see most of them seeing that as a means to tempt the dragons to attack their homes. In this case, the old statement "let sleeping dragons lie" is very appropriate.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail
