The Velskir

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

When Valden the Conqueror defeated the Sokoro Union, and its last Prince; Meraxas, 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, scattered bands of Velskir horsemen prosper by raiding merchant caravans traveling upon the Cyphergate Road, who are heading to and fro from the seaport of Varistan.
