Seven Kingdoms: Seowyn's Crossing
Aarakocra are a race of avian humanoids native to Aldorath. Resembling various birds of prey, they largely dwell in the southern ranges of the Everfrost Mountains. They often battled against the highly competitive Goliaths who dwelled in the mountains, and they had many fierce encounters with Goblinoids trying to invade the mountains from the east. Their earliest friendly contacts were with the Dwarves who explored the mountains from the north. The dwarves offered them gold and gems, which they like, to act as scouts and guides, thus settling the two races in a relationship that last to this day. Aarakocra rarely leave their mountain homes, but, when they do, they are an exotic sight.
