The Tiger Lord barbarians are a tribe of Kellids along Brevoy's borderlands who trace their lineage to an Age of Destiny-era band of conquerors that once swept from the Realm of the Mammoth Lords to southeastern Numeria behind the warlord Armag.[1] Even today, they are the Kellid tribe with the broadest range of travel, providing mercenaries to such places as the Realm of the Mammoth Lords in the west to Iobaria in the east.[2] The Tiger Lords draw their inspiration from dire tigers and revere an immense smilodon named Speartooth as their totem.[3]

History

Armag led the Tiger Lords from the Realm of the Mammoth Lords across Numeria and into Brevoy, crossing the Rostland Plains before Iobarian warlords and Casmar centaurs halted his advance. Armag's audacity and brutality drew Gorum's favor, while his boasts that he could not be killed wrought Pharasma's wrath upon him; the two gods waged a battle of influence using the Tiger Lords and their enemies as proxies until Armag's death in battle against a red dragon.

Gorum bound Armag's soul into the sword Ovinrbaane and inspired Tiger Lord shaman Zorek to build Armag's Tomb in what would become known as the Stolen Lands, all with the intent of keeping Armag's spirit out of Pharasma's Boneyard.[1]

Around 4610 AR, the Tiger Lords were led by Armag the Twice-Born, a supposed reincarnation of Armag advised by the Black Sisters. This new Armag was driven back to Pitax by Baron Hannis Drelev, where Armag the Twice-Born struck an alliance with bandits for vengeance.[4]

Goals

The Tiger Lords raid and pillage their neighbors for resources and to prove their might.[5]

Structure

The Tiger Lords are led by a chieftain, selected or succeeded by combat.[4]
