Rise of the Runelords
The Shoanti (pronounced show-AHN-tee) are a barbaric, often nomadic people native to the Stroval Plateau and Velashu Uplands regions of Varisia. Like their Varisian cousins, these humans descended from the enslaved workers of the ancient empire of Thassilon, but have, since its fall, developed a unique and advanced culture of their own.
Gorgoroth and the Shoanti
Gorgoroth has Shoanti blood running in his veins. His mother was a full blooded Shoanti who was brutily raped by marauding band of Ocrs. Because he is not pure, Gorgoroth became an outcast by both the Orcs and Shoanti. He now finds purpose in life walking among humans and elves.
