The Ferdiad Cycle
Little is known about the Vindiil raiders far to the north. They are believed to be distant relatives of the Cerns who migrated to the north as a result of the Ellysians conquest. They are expert marines who launch devastating raids to the coastal towns by the Endless Sea. The mere sight of their longships are enough to drive terror to the hearts of the bravest defenders.
The Vindiil are fierce warriors that, unlike the savage Hillpeople, fight organized and wear heavy armour that tells of a advanced society. While the Vindiil are mostly met on the battlefield they sometimes sail to the south to trade, bringing stories of a frozen north filled with sea monsters and giants the size of trees.
