Cultures of the Kruthad Peninsula



Like all of the First Men, the Dolbazi were tall, powerfully built, and long-lived. They were gold colored with shiny black hair. The Dolbazi split into two main groups: the Roshibi and the Zuli. The Roshibi maintained their powerful stature but darkened as they moved southward. The Zuli grew shorter.

Modern Peoples

Harnak: A tribe of Roshibi. They kept to the hills and fought among themselves for centuries. The Harnak did not mix with foreigners, nor were they influenced by Cromirlings. In fact, the Harnak hills were thoroughly purged of beastmen.

Jalin: A branch of Relorians that followed the Four Princes over the Donnith Hills and into the Prulam.

Krishari: A generic term. The Krishari include many peoples, primarily of Dolbazi descent.

Prulami: The Prulam served as a mixing pot of Zulin Dolbazi, Cazzirian, and Relorian. The Cazzirians invigorated the soft Zuli of the Prulam with a larger, darker breed. The Relorians, who were a fair race, lightened the skin of the Anphirean Cazzirians.

Tenhari: Descendants of the Shirem Dolbazi who were corrupted by dark Cromirling magic. The magic changed the Shirem Dolbazi from their original stock. They grew shorter and paled so that now the Tenhari are short, stocky, and olive-colored. The Tenhari have an affinity with the creatures of the water and underground.


The most widespread language of the peninsula is Krishari. The people of Rashan speak their native Ristuli and many peoples of the western highlands speak Ristuli dialects. The folk of the Harnak speak their own tongue, but often learn Krishari as well. In the Prulam the city dwellers speak both Krishari and Ralubi, but most of the nomads speak native dialects of Relori.
