Fire & Flood
The Quieter Ones
The Quieter Ones, or Illish-kikai in their own tongue, are an ancient tribe of Kobolds being researched by Simon Morranis, who supposedly served as guides and assistants for the builders of The Framework. The tribe has become near mythical by now, but is believed to still exist and to monitor the parts of the grid left lost by all others since. Some postulate that they may in fact worship the Artifact as well, but that has not been proven.
In the course of Fire & Flood, the party searching for The Artifact finds the quieter ones to search for, develop, and maintain ancient technologies and magics. They breed and train a strange form of weasel which aids them at this purpose.
The remnants of the once great tribe which in ancient times was known for its advanced technology, are led by the latest iteration of the Navarrix who also guards the Artifact or as they call it, The Parthanis.
