Skjald Vinotis

 

History

Considered the 12th oldest of the Indigenous tribes, the are offspring from mixing Kobold and Archaic Neander. Some of their old chronicles claim that they descend from a empire older than The Crossing. This gives them a somewhat proud attitude towards the other races, especially the lesser ones, against whom they often act rashly and violently in words as well as in actions. They mainly live in great cities, or settlements in mountains and woods.

Special

They are good workers and excellent warriors. A few selected individuals at their upper court circles are known to be able to use Nimzaxian fluently. Some of their more skilled traders are known to be able to use Tha-Arlian to some extent.

They are excellent warriors and their legends claim that in ancient times they fended off a Frograi invasion all by themselves, as their combat skills with sword was superior to the enemies skills with spears and great-blades.

Story

Jocky Chan once told me about the meeting in 1250 where the N’Aaldan finally decided to join in forming The Realm and acknowling the High King as theirs as well. Basically ending 375 years of brutal civil war, brought to the commoner by their power hungry Ubun, each eager to be the Sharun of Sunborn as well as protecting their own clans.

The meeting was far more relaxed than any ever before among the Ubun as they knew war was finally over. Signing the treaty went smooth and the only tense moment was when the Sharin of Sunborn handed his crown to Sahsnot, the first ever non royal N’Aaldan to touch it. Holding it meanwhile a Kobold Smidhr  pryed the Sunstone of the Blue Ocean from it, then inserting it in the crown of the High King that Kanziganthir was holding.

Meanwhile Sahsnot stepped in front of the attending Lava Imp and with a nod to the former Sharun of Sunborn let it slide down into the boiling lava.

To the sizzling sound of melting Kanziganthir gave the crown of the High King with the new gem to the former Sharin of Sunborn. Who then stepped in front of the High King Solvarr 'Black Oak' Svartholtr, and with the words “I give you me and my Isles loyalty and our power”, he placed the crown on the High King.

Baldur told me, that it was the first time ever, he saw N’Aldaan commoners smile genuinely.
