    -'Makunde' was based off  many different influences. Cirque du Soleil's Dralion and KA characters are present, most notably in the Royal Family. In addition, the mod's setting takes a light inspiration from the KA storyline. 'Makunde' includes several areas which names were influenced by real Japanese and Chinese Emporer's names. Originally, the mod was built as a Telvannian Tree Island where the player could not visit the forest floor. Makunde uses hundreds of resources of the Asian Themed Resource compiled by Legato and Redwoodtreesprite, and is the only currently existing Oriental Styled Landmass available for English Download in Morrowind.
