The ancient city-state of Gileash stands at the edge of the Farspan Plains – serving as the only permanent community of the people who have come to be called the Gilly.
The Gilly people are primarily nomadic in nature – drifting the high plains and hunting the herds of great beasts which ply its ways. The Gilly rarely settle in one spot for longer than a single season and almost all of their agricultural needs are met via trade with outsiders. The Gilly are great hunters and travelers but their culture greatly emphasizes community and self-sacrifice.
Gillies are tall and thin and, unsurprisingly, dark skinned and dark eyed. Many of their number have blonde, white, or gray hair however. They commonly wear veils, scarves, and other items of clothing to obscure themselves from the harsh sun on the plains.
Those of Gilly ancestry benefit from the following ethnic modifiers.
