Extinct; succeeded by the Varangi
The first seaworthy ships are believed to have been made the Shardanesse. Living along the once tranquil coast of Arkhosia their love for the ocean and Melora knew no bounds. Mighty were their explorers and warriors that feared not the ocean depths, whether they traded goods or took them matterer not to them.
After the Cataclysm those who were at sea returned to find their homeland shattered and drowned beneath the crashing waves. Bereft of all that was important to them they have taken to the sea many of them living onbard their ships until repairs require them to reurn to their homeports. They continue to trade, but they are more inclined to take slaves to sell in the corrupted cities of the world.
