The Lands of Aris
The native Halfling land is the Island of Dessica. The majority of the island’s population lives in small fishing villages lining the coasts, who are responsible for the islands tourism as well as the huge industry of fishing. Further inland lives the Halfling clans of Dessica. Once almost all Halflings were part of a clan, each the greatest of enemies vying for control of the island. Now they are far smaller, changing over time to closer resemble guilds than armies. Despite that each is still controlled by the original families, passing down leadership from generation to generation. They all stand united, forming the Council of the clans, the ruling Oligarchy of Dessica. Seven in total, each one brings a different philosophy & a skill the island relies upon. While each clan may be relied on for a specific skill, only a slight majority dedicate themselves to said skill (the only exception being the Penteghasts, as the clan is comprised entirely of magic users).
