OF SAILORS AND MERFOLK: TALES OF THE SEA

TABLE OF CONTENTS - FOLK TALES OVERVIEW

 

"Of Sailors and Merfolk" is a collection of various Avennorian tales recounted by sailors and fishermen which have been gathered mainly in the fishing villages in the coastal region of the eastern Manthrian province in Santharia. Most tales you can find in this volume are stories from the people of Nepris, written down as told by the Neprisian fisherman Andulf Istherin and the elders of the village, the blind Calmann Narth as well as Andrus Voltmer. The texts were later on edited and published by Garth Memelooth of Chrondra.
