Rael - The Walls of Holaz
The Lolls are an ancient oriental race with large builds and a rich heritage as fierce warriors. The Lolls have conquered vast lands – overwhelming the Tarsican super continent, and have even invaded Vishrondia on two separate occasions in history. Eventually even the power of the great empire cannot sustain
provinces and territories across such vast
distances. The individual kingdoms regain
their independence and one-by-one the Lollard
empire returns to its place in the warm lands of
the Jade Forests. The empire goes through
periods of division when many powerful
families will rise to power and fight for
supremacy of the Lollard empire.
The Daojin live in the south in what is known
as the Emerald empire and are known for their
monasteries, mental discipline, and their
mysteries (using spirits, psychic powers, and KI). The Daojin do not believe in
killing for any reason, but will defend themselves with non-lethal force if necessary.
The battle hardened Bujin use many weapons with extreme skill and constantly
fight, often amongst themselves. They are advanced and savage in battle. Crude
and cruel when dealing with foreigners.
The Lollard legacy has changed the people influenced by them greatly. Silks,
spices, oral traditions, art, architecture, and even language has been passed along
by Lollard conquerors. The Thussin language is actually a mix of Wessin and Loll.
And across the Thussin and Thusbar speaking lands many colleges of monastic
martial arts can trace their origins thousands of miles away to the shores of the
Emerald River Gojau. The Lolls have never been adept at the use of magic and
have relied on the skills of Reavers or anti-wizards capable of draining magic from
spellcasters. This art was taught to them by the legendary Gosuu – a dark and
sinister stranger from their deepest past.
