The Sennar Horseman speaks Sudanese Arabic using dialogue files of the Sudanese.


The Sennar Sultanate (16th-19th centuries) in modern-day Sudan was a feudal society that relied on local magnates to raise armies when a conflict arose. The main metric along which military power in Sennar was measured was in the strength of mounted cavalry. These heavily armored riders were the pride of their armies, and their influence was such that for reasons of self-preservation they delayed the integration of firearms into Sennar armies, much to the Sultanate’s detriment.
