History and background[edit]

Shidu, as well as being one of the major agricultural producers in the region, is considered to be one of the best examples of Lancian culture in the whole subsector and its arts are renowned throughout Dagudashaag for their fresh individualistic approach.

Unfortunately this renaissance has not been without a price - too many local youth, captivated by the wealth being made by successful artists, are leaving their traditional agricultural lifestyle and flooding the art colleges with their often mediocre talent. Not only has this saturated the market with inferior art but many of the plantations now have too few workers to properly cultivate the land.
