A Peek at Felinia
Though many of the civilized regions your characters will explore are populated by humans, there are pockets of demi-humans scattered throughout Azuregard that are worth mentioning. So far, we’ve gone into a good amount of detail about elves, dwarves, and orcs. But that is by no means a complete list of all the races that call Azuregard home. Of the other demi-human races, perhaps none are shrouded in greater mystery and none more fascinating than the mysterious cat-folk of Felinia.
Situated on the southern edge of the Kingdom of the Far Realms, Felinia’s location isn't widely known to many who live on Azuregard. And even for those who have knowledge of Felinia’s location, getting there presents a major challenge given the rough terrain and sheer cliff faces that surround the hidden capital. Suffice to say, it’s not a place that most other demi-humans will often go out of their way to visit unless the need is urgent.
As isolated as the city is from outsiders, the cat-folk do travel far and wide. Although Felinians aren’t a common sight, they aren’t rare either, especially during the spring and summer months. Felinians can be identified by their shorter stature and their elegant, if functional, mode of dress. Despite their size, they are capable fighters, adopting a swashbuckler’s mentality as they use their agility and proficiency with dueling weapons like rapiers and epees or lighter blades like daggers and short swords to overwhelm their foes.
So as you continue your travels around Azuregard, don’t be surprised if you come across a Felinian out on the road, going about his business. Do especially be on the lookout for a fellow who calls himself Luciano. We hear he’s got quite the reputation and he has some stories of interest that you may just want to follow up on…
