The Pirates Of Atlantis
North of the turbulent Shangkam River lies the land of Khendai, said to be one
of the most ancient and mysterious of lands. The Khendai people are secretive and quiet (at least among outsiders), and their language is extremely complex and difficult to learn, so few people have ever become familiar with Khendai society and culture.
The Lemurian governors, such as the current Lord Helkaen of House Jyln, typically ignore the placid populace and amuse themselves with whatever pursuits they prefer. In Helkaen’s case, that tends to be hunting the large, dangerous Khendai black-furred bear. Sometimes these bears grow to monstrous size; Helkaen yearns to hunt such a bear, not caring that it would kill dozens of Khendai and possibly destroy villages and towns before he got to it. The northern part of Khendai is a hilly peninsula, and the people who live there are known as the Hill-Men.
A particularly fierce and independent group, they’ve never acknowledged the overlordship of Lemuria. Periodically the Lemurians send an expeditionary force into the hills to destroy them, but the Hill-Men simply abandon their villages and fade into the landscape they know so well. Their highly-skilled archers, who have the magical power to transform their arrows into darts of fire, can then pick at the Lemurians until the Lemurians decide it’s not worth the effort and leave.
