The much-feared seaborne H√ľornen bands that raid the northern coastal settlements of Ammarind, Cyrendar, Derianor, Marundi, Orrek, and the Barrens. Most of these evil barbarian raiders hail from the Thalar Islands and have long raid towns and villages along the northern coasts of the Myr Thalal, Dragon Sound, and the Sea of Vaas. The Variags' preferred vessels are sleek long-ships, with great dragons carved on the prows. These dragon-ships and their masters are greatly feared by northern coastal folk of Corwyn.
