The Vinarii once rose from the coastal waters of the Athyrian shores to be closer to the Intaro Rhiannon, whom they revered. Thanks to their intelligence, their ingenuity and their great, sometimes unscrupulous business acumen, they managed to become one of the high cultures of the young world in a very short time and spread over all of Athyria.
The legendary seaside towns of the Vinarii are known for their progress, their culture but also for their bustle. One speaks with awe of the great successes in seafaring and the wonderful goods that the Vinarii are able to create. Doing business with a vinarii is a fine art. Because the chance of being conned out of much more money than one wanted to with great ease and a radiant smile is greater than some would like.
