Orcs build great slave-rowed galleys, veritable floating wooden fortresses, their holds bulging with crops and resources that the elves nippy Ma'Janah can sail circles around. Dryads would loathe the ocean, except the Mangrove Court who can tolerate the salt. I have a hard time picturing the goblins building more than canoes… or perhaps they're actually adept sailors like the Polynesians, building great outriggers and catamarans. Maybe the goblins cooperate with the Mangrove Court, the dryads there helping shape living wood into canoes, and the goblins crewing the ocean-going canoes or their Secret-priests serving as navigators. Dwarves could make pumice rafts for navigating rivers and lakes, but I don't see them as good swimmers or seafarers.

Continent B
Name: Seyren?
Structure: Continent? Island-continent cluster? Archipelago?
The humans here did not go extinct in prehistory; instead they abandoned their gods after discovering the power of magic. They built a mighty empire fuelled by blood sacrifice (Mesoamerican / Mesopotamian). THEN they went extinct. The races here are not related to the Races of the Wheel: they are are human subspecies, offshoots created by magical tampering, or separate races in their own right.

  • Rockmen: Men of rock. Also, women of rock. Awakened elemental spirits / elemental spirit descendants.
