I was thinking about Tengu today, and I wondered - what was it like during the period the Tengu arrived and built their new home?
Was the land given to them, or did they simply arrive and declare the land theirs? I can't seem to find any information on this.
Many races were displaced by the dragons - Tengu by Zhaitan respectively - and most have either joined the community of lion's arch or spread out into other areas. Tengu are the only ones to truly show up and claim their own territory, and they went to great lengths to keep themselves secluded/isolated by building a wall around their land. Apparently they have an Emperor and noble houses in there.
What's most intriguing to me though is that there was apparently no strife with their arrival and claiming of this land? No one cared that they came and built their "Dominion" right next to a major city? Is there some obscure piece of lore I'm missing where the Tengu already had claim to that land, or that it was otherwise gifted to them?
