Icons and Anchors
Stormbluff Cloudpuff the Cloud Lord
(It’s pronounced pouffee, get it right)
Current patriarch of the Cloudpuff clan. A very rich gnome. Head of the only trading company with open sky ships. His family has a rich line of magic in their blood, and a set of magical tattoos which are somehow passed from down the lines of descent.
Josie the Pirate Queen
Capstone of a massive pirate pyramid scheme, her raiders are the defacto tax-persons of the vel river. She’s been trying to make inroads into the sea. So far the elvish navy has been able to keep a semblance of law and order, but they are increasingly strained by the orcish attacks from the east. It is rumored that Josie has been secretly constructing a sky ship from pilfered materials and knowledge.
Dwarf king: Mergin daughter of Magrin
The current dwarf king is a stout traditionalist. She has been aggressively expanding dwarven tunneling efforts. Re-opening closed off mid tunnels has been a boon for the dwarven economy. Beryl, the triple city is now richer than it has been in centuries. There are rumors of monsters being sited in the mids
His lowness the Undersider Underking: Unglar Underseer
King of the undersiders, he rules from Stalag. Under his rule a new understanding with the Saughin has been reached, ending decades of war. He has arranged trade with them, offering webwork and dwarven metal goods for Saugin rarities, like mist rays, etch, and strange metals like “alumin”.
Morg, President of the Orcs:
Raised in an elvish zoo, Morg has a deep hatred of all elves. He was freed when the eastern elvish colony of New Forest was sacked and burned during the first uprising. Drafted into the warband, he rapidly rose through the ranks. After demonstrating his tactical and administrative genius during the siege of New Great Tree, he was elected president. He has greatly expanded the orcish diplomatic corps. With new allies and purpose, the orcs are beginning to throw back elvin naval dominance and become a credible threat to the home trees.
Sauhaugin lord: Name roughly translates as “Breaker of many teeth in his enemies’ flesh”
The sharp toothed leader of the Sauhaugin. Little is known about him. Since making a truce with the undersiders, his raiders are seen more often on the topside than they were in the past. Many humans consider the Sauhaugin a myth, but the delicious disappearance of entire populations is hard to ignore.
