Lore: Races

The Yespest (or Yerpest)[1] were tribe of Men indigenous to Black Marsh, along with the Horwalli, Kothringi, and Orma. How they arrived in Black Marsh is unknown, possibly having been sent there as refugees or prisoners, or settled along the coastal waterways on their own and adapted to the environment.[2] They were known to be active in the region around Blackrose, and were likely responsible the stone monuments there, which took inspiration from the architecture of the Barsaebic Ayleids.[1] They no longer inhabit Black Marsh, disappearing from unspecified causes.[2]
