A map of Vhast that was seen by Theodora in the library in Ardlark.

Eagle Rider

Eagle Rider

Khitan: This is a rider of the Eagle clan on a typical plains horse. He is probably a shaman who has hand-raised the eagle that he has with him. He will use this eagle both for hunting and as a spirit guide in the ‘other’ or real world. If he can commune with it he would also use it to see through its eyes and to communicate with other eagles.

Dromond

The Dromond is the standard vessel of the navy of Darkreach. This is a sketch by a non-sailor of a small one. Most are equipped with both sail and oar and typically have two, although sometimes one or three masts. Most have lateen sails (as pictured) but some are square-rigged. Some are able to raise their own wind magically. They are equipped with a variety of weapons ranging from flame-throwers to rocket launchers or rock-firing ballistae. Even without mages on board these are the most powerful vessels known on the seas of Vhast.

Cow Lizard

Cow Lizard

Cow-lizard. The cow-lizard is hunted for both meat and leather. The clan of the Cow-lizard have developed techniques to domesticate these creatures and they also use them both as draft animals and in war. This is a war beast of the Tar-Khan, the leader of the clan. His rank can be seen by the four long tassels on his standard. Each rank in the clan has a different number of tassels.

 

Cow-lizards used in war are usually male, are armoured and protected by magic and have horns protected by metal. They move slowly into battle, but are well able to destroy any infantry that they come across. Not all of the clan will ride these beasts and a common tactic is to use cavalry to lure a target into charge range of the cow-lizards or to pen the opponent where they cannot escape.
