Gautar

Gautar

The Gautar are famous slayers of monsters – an aggressive, adventurous people who choose to meet the challenges of the world head-on. They share ancient ties of kinship with the Sviar, but no longer share the Sviar obsession with tradition and religion. Gautland is remarkably free of monsters, unlike much of the North, because of the heroism of its peoples, who often hire themselves as mercenaries in other lands.
