In addition, Yindu (elephant and yak homeland) is clearly India, Camels are Middle-Eastern, the Yaks are Tibetans, and Leopards are implied to be similar to Mongolians.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasyCounterpartReligion:
** The Church of S'allumer is patterned after the medieval Catholic church, with some of the heterodoxies (and heresies) being directly named after real ones.
** Lutarism is based on a mix of Germanic and Celtic mythology combined with a bit of animism.
** The Phelan have druids.
** "Book of Horn and Ivory" introduces Malachism, an obvious parallel to Islam, and opposed to all forms of magic.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiMagicalFaction: Malachism, the state religion of the Anatolian Empire, believes that magic should be the exclusive domain of the angels. Using magic in Anatolian states gets you a fine or imprisoned, which ironically makes it safer to practice Necromancy there than in Calebria (where the Church proscribes torture for Necromancers.)
