The Ffolk are the original human inhabitants of the Moonshaes, descended from some tribes of Talfir who settled on the isle of Gwynneth in approximately 140 DR. The original Talfirian inhabitants were joined by many Thethyrian immigrants in the mid-400s. Over the course of the next century, the Ffolk came to populate most of the southern isles of the Moonshaes, including Gwynneth, Moray, Snowdown, and Alaron.
Traditionally, the Ffolk are a peaceful and industrious people, working primarily as farmers, fishers, shipbuilders, hunters and traders. They have a strong druidic tradition, and most Ffolk worship The Earthmother, sometimes alongside other, "newer" deities brought over from the mainland.
For much of the past 1100 years, the Ffolk were involved in a variety of conflicts against the more nomadic and violent Northlanders, who began raiding and occasionally settling the islands beginning in 256 DR. For the most part, this conflict ended in 1371 DR, when the kingdoms of the Ffolk and the Northlanders were united under the rule of High Queen Alicia Kendrick.
