The Velskir

Located in a desolate region called the Sokoro Highlands of eastern Eldara; the Velskir barbarian tribes are descendants of the early human tribes of the Sokoro Union, defeated by Eldara long ago.

When King Valden Durethë conquered the Sokoro Union, and its last Prince bent the knee, some of his tribesmen would not submit to the Thannish conquerors and fled into the Hills. King Valden later declared that "any man north of the Velskir River is a barbarian and criminal." Thus the tradition has endured.

Today, their bands of horsemen prosper by raiding travelers and merchant caravans on the Cyphergate Road heading to and fro from to the seaport of Varistan.
