Vos

KINGDOMS OF THE VOS

Land of the frozen wastes; its people have to be as cold and harsh as the land itself to survive.

VOS

The Vos are originally descended from the Dhraghst and Khelik peoples; both hardy races from the northern and northeaster coasts of the Velossian continent in the western hemisphere. The Dor-Khelik of Arctica have raided these peoples for as long as either can remember; taking slaves and large breeding populations for their nefarious purposes. The Vos are the result of this intermixture, and have been bred for war and conquest.

Intermittent raiding of northern Anuire has become a migration, as little resistance and abundant resources in a clime better than their native one, yet similar, relieves much of the population pressures and competition in their homelands in Arctica.

Personality

The Vos live a harsh life which has hardened them to cruelty and misery. Those with the strength and will to live and conquer do so; those without it are subjugated or die.

Physical Description

The Vos tend to have pale eyes and sallow skin. They are large boned with flat faces.

Relations

The Vos don’t get along with anyone, even themselves. Their culture places a high value on fighting, warfare, and displays of strength.

Alignment

Most Vos are inclined to be chaotic. Many Vos practice forms of cannibalism and ritual torture, making them evil. Few Vos could be considered good.

Lands

The Vos live on the vast tundra, stretching from Furyundy in the west to the edges of the Sea of Stars in the east. Life is hard and the Vos war with themselves and everyone else on a constant basis.

Religion

The Vos worship a harsh and unforgiving pantheon of gods that mirrors their brutal existence.

Language

The Vos speak Korvish.
