Great House Gurak. So in previous drafts, like way, waaaaay back when I was just world-building with no intent of making a comic, Great House Gurak was originally an orcish house. As drafts were revised though, they eventually became tribal humans, and then just regular humans. Currently, they're pretty much just the same as regular Aldanians, if marginally bigger on average. That's not to say though that if you were to put 10 people from the Gurak duchy and 10 people from Central Aldania in the same room, you'd be able to tell them apart. Heck, if you lined them up from shortest to tallest, you'd still get a pretty even distribution. The average difference is only like 2-6 cm or so.

This duchy, I'm also not quite sure if we'll be visiting. We'll definitely see people from there, but plotwise, there's not much need to go there any time soon. That might change in the future though, but don't hold your breath.

Fun fact though, originally, I had intended Tayeb to be from this duchy, back when this was just the martial duchy. Back then, when it was still tribal human groups, they would have been something like the Germanic tribes to Central Aldane's Rome. Eventually though, I scrapped that idea, so Tayeb became Partelos instead. Of course, that's not to say that Central Aldane is supposed to be Rome, of course. I don't do those one-to-one allegory things. Rather, the Aldanian Empire is just any other empire that may have been, with both its good and bad points.

Oh! Cripes, I did not notice that, my bad. I'll fix it in a bit.
