Wilderlands of Dark Fantasy
The Avalonians are the noblest people, in their own minds if nowhere else. The tall, think Avaonian dress in wealthy clothing, for all the Avalonian clans are of noble blood, and all Avalonians hold a noble title, even the least citizen. They are also merchants by profession and control nearly all trade in the Uther Pentwegern Sea as well as the northern reaches of the Winedark Sea. Their city, Valon, is built right upon the sea, and consists of gold and silver tower-girt islands divided by stone-lined canals which freeze over in winter. Swimming is natural to these folk. They are also superlative sailors and shipwrights. Avalonians are more likely to have magical training than most, typically cold, water, and/ or ice magic.
Some claim to be descended from an ancient admixture of merfolk and an unknown extra-planar folk from the Elemental Plane of Water or Ice. Sage comparisons between the Avalonians and the green-skinned Viridians cause violence to erupt most unexpectedly from this other- wise peaceful folk. Some few Avalonians have gills and can breathe in the water as if on land.
