Locks, Stocks and 2 Smoking Wands
Tiefling, or “Deep Ones”, are one of the many races from Aerth that survived the Joining. They were once members of the many races (Draconic, Fae, or Earthkin) who made packs with beings from the lower realms for power. With that power they established a great empire, vying for dominance amongst the many races. So long did their empire exist that they began to breed true as a race – their planar gifts and appearance now a matter heritage rather than a pact. During the Time of the Dark, the Tiefling and the Dragonborn clashed on the field of battle, most likely through the manipulations of the Dark one itself. No quarter was asked for, no quarter given on either side. Were it not for the Joining, no member of either race might survive now.
In the time after the Great Storm, the Tieflings have begun to rebuild. On the continent of Gorja, they have embraced a different path to rebuilding. Seeking to avoid the folly of repeating past mistakes, they have formed the Tiefling Emirates, where ones value is based on wealth, holding, and influence on the world at large.
