Nomads of Archai Valley

Title: Nomads of Archai Valley
Time Period: Age of Immortals
Written By: Unknown Author
Summary: A story of nomadic tribes that called Archai Valley home before the Shattering.

Before the Great Shattering, there was a nomadic tribe consisting mostly of Pyresian vukasins, humans, and gavials who roamed the Archai Valley from the southeastern deserts of Shan’zar in the winter months, to the northwestern Tanasi River Valley at the base of the Aerwasi Mountains during the summer. Other races and religions joined their migration for parts of the journey, most of which were Tetherians returning to the silverwood forests with their pelts for the late-autumn Renewal Festival.
This yearly migration was broken up and forgotten after the Great Shattering by each of the races, but the vukasin, who did so more out of instinct than a willingness to preserve tradition. They spoke of early winters when the way around the rift was too windy and they had to walk the narrow cliffs of the bison plains, across a frozen Lake Stirling, and south across the Tannendale River into the warmer regions of southern New Archai Isle.
These wandering tribes did not keep written records. Their only documented history comes from incredible artwork of the valley and its creatures on the backs of animal hides and on the sides of cave dwellings. Their stories are still passed down around the campfires as they continue to wander the valley as their ancestors, but their numbers have mostly vanished. The land is not the wild domain they once roamed, their journey now taking them across populated routes along Thalassa Road and Archai’s Divide. The last known tribe to make the yearly pilgrimage across the Archai Valley was thought to have taken refuge in the northern Crooked Sisters as plague swept across the isle in 420 AoM.
