I thought it could be interesting to develop this realm further. Giant Eagles were a promient part of Dave Arneson's original Blackmoor campaign, before he realized how much of a nuissance they were and removed them overnight, so I thought it could be an interesting idea to have these eagles be descended from the Eagles used by the Blackmoorians. This could explain why they were so easy (relatively speaking) to domesticate by the Hiakrai tribe.
Would this realm be home to other flying creatures as well? Sphinxes, Dragonnes, Dragons etc are likely to make their home on this Floating continent. Flying Serpents too if Hiak-Lor ever comes close to Ashmorain.
I am also thinking about including other Neathar Tribes mounted on Flying creatures, such as Giant Bat-riders and Pteranodon Riders in the syle of the Ralph Bakshi "Fire and Ice" movie .
