The Ferdiad Cycle
The Thyrians live far in the west in an ancient mountain kingdom. They are rarely seen in the east but their trading vessels sail sometimes as far as Phygosia. Otherwise they can be found in the crews of the pirate ships harassing the southern coasts.
Little is known about their distant land but the Thyrians are lively folk who like nothing more than change stories ranging from fairy tales to local gossip. They are said to have magic in their blood and can cast terrible curses on those who have insulted them. This can happen quite easily as they are notoriously short tempered and never forget an insult.
