Lurdi    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)

Toltep walked slowly along the avenue, it would have been easier to swim along in the viaduct, but he had made it a point to not do the easy thing. All to often the easy path lead to ruin, and he had not survived so long by taking shortcuts, or the easy road. The market, what was above water, was abuzz with conversation. A large school of blood-crazed lurdi had been diverted into an ambush where the brave people had slaughtered the monsters. There was some worry, Toltep gathered, as a few had escaped.

The Brave People    Society/ Organizations  (Ethnic/Cultural)   (Regional)

Isolated from the known world by the seemingly endless watery wastes of the fabled Vaet Ocean, the Eshal rule the watery continent of Tarrod with an iron fist, ever ready to carry out plundering raids on the subject races at the slightest excuse. Proudly calling themselves the Brave People,the Eshal are a race of savage warriors and fanatics that are driven by the consuming need to find an ever larger number of victims to feed the monstrous thing known simply as the Matriarch .

The Agerai    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Swamp)

A dark shadow falls over the still waters of the swamp, and for a brief instant every sound made by a living creature ceases.

Shura Fist of Slaying    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Non-Magical)

Just like with the sharks they so revere,a wrong or inappropriate action can provoke a lethal reaction from a Shura. As the other mer-races are so fond of saying among themselves,the only thing more unpredictable than a shark is a Shura.  This is a prefered weapon, simple yet deadly.

The Great Serpents    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Water)

The Great Serpents are the primary form of riding transportation for the Eshal. These massive, venomous creatures are one of the primary reasons that the Eshal were so successful in running roughshod over the cities of the Mer-folk.
