The only known map showing Akos Kasaz

Akos Kasaz is the largest island in the Yokudan archipelago, between the Azurian Sea and the Sea of Pearls, far to the west of Hammerfell.[1] Due to its size, the island spans multiple environments, some gentle and some brutal.[2] The capital of the Yokudans, Old Totambu, was located on Akos Kasaz.[2] In the late Second Era, other settlements included Tagon in the west, Taleskan in the north, and Yul in the south.[1]

As the home of the Na-Totambu, the old ruling class (which would later become the Crowns), the Red Dervish of Rihad was famously quoted for the phrase "A daughter of the House of Akos Kasaz shall not marry an infidel of another house." What this means is that a daughter of the Crowns shall not marry another Redguard that drifted away from the Yokudan customs, like the Forebears.[3] Northern Akos Kasaz was a fertile steppe, home to large herding clans, some of whom worshipped the Herd Mother, rather than the typical Yokudan gods. This group, known as the Horsemen, left Yokuda in the sixth century of the First Era, eventually founding a colony in the Vale of Silverhoof in High Rock.[4]
