Encompassing all of the oval shaped rainforest area to the east of Geshân, Tûktan was an interconnected web of Hiratti villages, loosely knit and united by a very informal central government consisting of a council of seventeen Yilhani (village leaders). The Yilhan council met semi-annually, or if a threat to the realm as a whole warranted it. Otherwise each Yilhan ruled his town as he saw fit, and all engaged in a lively trade amongst themselves and with adjacent Kôronânde. It was in the Tûktan forest alone that the Yêdic Teak trees flourished, and their wood was prized. Not surprisingly, Tûktan wood craftsmen were very skilled and their furniture and bows were highly sought after. Tûktan composite bows could bring a price many times the average, and were said to be superior to any other, save the most powerful magical bows. Of late T.A. 1700 Tûktan had increasing problems with the Mûmakani people who, beginning to envy the fine homes and land of the Tûktani, were ever more antagonistic, raiding on the bordering villages with increasing frequency.
