The Rhyshan are a mysterious race that live in the caves deep in the mountains of the Crimson Isles. They once were a united race, with a single leader, named Kharda, he was killed by a creature in the mountains, and the entire race split into hundreds of seperate clans(I`ll get a list up ASAP).

  The Rhyshan`s are cloaked right after birth, so no one outside of their race knows what they truely look like, the cloaks they wear reach down to their knees, they have no feet, so, they take longer to learn to walk, but when they to learn to walk, they eventually can run as fast as a cheetah.

  They are seldom known to anyone but elves, and a few men. Their different clans survive by hunting the wolves that roam the mountains, because of this need to hunt, they are extremely skilled at it. Some Rhyshan are gifted with powerful magic, but if such a thing happens, they are thrown out of the clan the day are they are able to walk, for the leader`s fear that the ones with magic have the power to strip them of their command.

  As soon as I figure out more about them, their history and culture, I will post another report.

Sounds interesting too. Now we should somehow decide where the Crimson Isles should be placed in the Aér'aí'chánian world and how big they will be in comparison to other lands. Not so easy cause the overall map in the Maps section is not very accurate currently (Isles of R'unor aren't displayed e.g.) and the continents of Akdor and Cyhalloi will move a bit. Anyway, I'm open for proposals.

The story for the Rhyshan is set in the Crimson Isles, 6 Rhyshan are thrown out of their tribe(name pending) because they tried to warn the leader that a creature called Leviathan((like a sea monster, sorta like the ones from the FF series)), and they have to stop it before it destroys the crimson Isles

Akdor and Cyhalloi are placed on two gigantic turtle swimming towards the northwest and will sometimes fall off the edge of the world. Well, ok, turtles are already used as a mythological means at Pratchett, so maybe you could think about something else? How about a whale? What do you say, Grey? This possibility would also have some biblical references...

:lol  - Do you really believe everything I'm writing when the day gets longer? *grin* No, Greybark, the continents will just move a bit north or south when placed on the final world map. Currently they are just placed somewhere in order to fit into the square at the map section. I guess god also wouldn't just place continents into squares, eh? ;)

Since the map didn`t reach you, I`d like to take time to draw a more detailed sketch, ok?

If you would, when you've finished....please send me a copy as well of both maps...The Isle of Wrath, as well as The Crimson Isles so i can integrate my stories with both of them.

My Most Sincerest Thanks

and I`ve also got this area I`m working on, a continent called Alandra, I wasn`t oringally going to use it for Santharia, but I scrapped the story that went with it, so when I finish it, would you be interested in seeing the sketch?

In case you'd like to integrate it into the Santharian case, I'd like to have a look. Note that there's a continent to the west of the Sarvonian continent currently named "Nybelmar". Although there exists a rough map sketch of Cylisril at the Library this sketch will be neglected in the final map version as Cylisril hasn't shown up for several months in Santharia. Therefore we have a place for a continent to spare and if necessary we can re-name the continent too (or the inhabitants use another term for their land than other people so that we can actually use both names). However, new members will have to work with the existing material then. 6 continents - that's it!

.....hmmm. Continents on the backs of turtles. That would help to explain the strange aftertaste in my last bowl of turtle soup.... :)

I have a request, according to the oringal idea for the Rhyshan, they worshiped a minor god, could you make this an official god?
