The River and Tree
Theroll is a nation tied heavily to the sea. Therolli sailors and ships are some of the best in the world, making them a force to be reckoned with on the sea. Few pirates will dare attack a Therolli merchant ship. Part of their success on the sea is due to the Therolli Storm Singers, a group of bards that can change the very weather with their songs. No Therolli ship leaves port without at least one Storm Singer on board. Theroll also employs a system of slavery, pirates and criminals can be sold into slavery as punishment and people can willingly sell themselves into indentured servitude to pay off debts. The slaves are usually given jobs like hard labor and mining whereas the indentured servants tend to act as house servants or simply just working a job without pay until their time is up. People from Theroll are characterized by their tan skin, black hair and bright green eyes.
