Entsteig is part of the region known as the Western Kingdoms, along with the lands of Westmarch and Khanduras. Thick, mountainous forests blanket Entsteig, and it is a proud kingdom that has pledged its loyalties to the Zakarum faith.
Located north of the Sharval Wilds and south of the Northern Steppes, Entsteig developed a culture highly distinct from nearby Ivgorod and the Barbarian tribes to the north. Its people believe the Sharval Wilds to be an enchanted place of fey spirits. When Rakkis marched west, Entsteig opened up to the man and embraced his teachings. Because of its quick acceptance of foreign rule, Entsteig quickly modernized and became an important Zakarum territory. In recent times, many of the most devout Zakarum paladins have hailed from Entsteig.
Despite this, elements of Entsteig's former culture remain. Even now, many old customs and pagan rituals are still practiced by Entsteig's inhabitants in the Sharval Wild, as per their spirit beliefs. Even so, these ancient rites have not conflicted with the observance of the Zakarum faith. Rather, Entsteig's people have managed to meld their own esoteric beliefs with their adopted religion.
