The people of The Tide are a loosely connected band of travelers, tradesmen, religious pilgrims, and nomads. Though they can be found all over the world, most drift predominantly among the Spiral Islands of the southwest, with frequent trade excursions made to Rouw, Mfeku, and Navalla. Despite their eclectic ways and beliefs, always at the core of their lives are the oceans and the seas. Native Tidesmen are adept swimmers, fishermen, and seamen. While several cities and villages do exist within the islands, many Tidesmen have no established home at all, and prefer to float the seas endlessly.
