-Some suspect that the [[eastern_kingdoms|Eastern Kingdoms]] maintain their silence because of Rang's reputation of becoming friendly with its neighbors, then conquering or absorbing them. There is a good piece of evidence for this theory – what limited trade there was ceased when Ostmark, the dutchy immediately to the west of the mountains, was absorbed into Rang. +Some suspect that the Eastern Kingdoms maintain their silence because of Rang's reputation of becoming friendly with its neighbors, then conquering or absorbing them.

-Like most of Rang, Ostmark is a predominately ​[[zioth:​religion:​andritha|Andrithan]] state.

The transition from nature worship to Andrithanism resulted in holidays, customs and traditions than harken back to the past. Forces of nature have been replaced by Andrithan saints. Instead of a farmer praying to the weather gods for rain to bless his crop, he might pray to the Patron Saint of Farmers, in addition, of course, to Andrith in all her aspects.+Like most of Rang, Ostmark is a predominately Andrithan state.
