Across the Seven Skies
The Rugged Tribes
Cailese who spurn City-living, instead choosing to dwell in the wastes in small tribes. Mostly nomadic herders, farmers, and prospector-miners, they sell their produce, spices, milk, cheese, hides, ores, and crafts to the traders of Agua Azul. While they believe in Vaoz, they hold to strange, heretical beliefs. None of the Rugged Tribes claim the Cavern Oasis (a grove of palm trees around a clear pool of water, deep inside a mountain), seeing it as a gift from Vaoz. By tradition, it is sanctuary for anyone who enters it.
