Legend

“Its said Gods sired the Wanderers, and Boriac being envious of the result, took interest in the Archaic Neander, creating their own blessed children in their image; the Moss’Ari.”

Skjald Vinotis

History

Considered the oldest of the Indigenous tribes, they are offspring from the Boriac. Whom with the blessing of Ühmrar Zänziliibûhr began to interbreed with the Archaic Neander at the island of West Fjella.

As all their half race Indigenous cousins, it took but a few generations before they began sliding away from the myth and rites of their ancestral races, and within a single generation they started to marry with their own kind. To be considered pure Moss’ari one has to have clean heritage lines to each original race, if at any point some other race has given seed, one are considered mixed Moss’ari. They have inherited the hunger for knowledge and learning from the Archaic Neander, but the privacy and remoteness of the Boriac has the upper hand. Thus, it was but a few generations before they had secluded settlements all over The Realm.

Organisation

Each tribe has it’s own leader, but they all have one grand leader. The current one is Hûar Harkwald

 

They are a nature folk living in pact with nature, spirits and the flow of Mana. They are a forest and swamp folk, one of the most, if not the people mostly in contact with nature and Fylgia. The live in small secluded societies where there’s a single Shaman in charge.

Generally they don’t like to use footgear as it removes them from their contact with nature, a nature they dislike being destroyed or tampered with. It’s told that in the beginning they continued the Neander habit of tearing down the teleport sites erected by their brethren Heidel. Resulting in a war among the two Archaic sub-tribes. Kaziganthi told me, some Moss’ari elders claim the Boriac told them to cease destroying the sites as they where vital to them. Thus the war and tearing down ended.

And they are surely a sight when they go to war, often body painted to look like tree bark, enhancing their rib-cages and wearing leaf capes and great horned helmets -with odd large bulging eyes.

Normally they are nude or very lightly armoured, only wearing occasional greaves and bracers of thick bark. The only metal they as such use are enhanced bronze their weapons -and thats only due a need to slay enemies. Else they prefer richly engraved hardwood. They also wear a large amount of neclaces, armbands, earrings, fingerrings, etc., and leaves, flowers, vines, flowers, feathers, teeth, beads are used for decoration.

Since The Wanderers came and Ljostari sank beneath the sea, the Moss’ari have retracted deeper into the dense forests and remote mountain valleys spread out across The Realm and at Darin
