AVENAISE: The natives of the Avenant Isles are descended from a mix of Sheoltun, Serran, and Wrennisch, with a dash of Keldon. Centuries ago, after the fall of the Sheoltun Empire, the islanders had to fend for themselves, and were overwhelmed by Keldon raiders, the flower of their chivalry shattered by fire and axe. Most of the male warrior populace was killed or sold off as slaves.

After years of oppression, the women of Avenant rebelled against their Keldon overlords and overthrew them. They used the archery skills they had learned during secret training in the forests (while their masters thought they were gathering wood), and the magical songs they had taught each other while drawing water.

Ever since then Avenant has been ruled by women, defending their realm with bows and bardic magic. Noble titles and their Benalish equivalents are Knightrix (landless knight), Dame (Baroness), Doyenne (Countess), and Suzeraine (Princess). The Suzeraine is sovereign and has power more like unto that of a king than the princes of Benalia.

Avenaise have alabaster, milky, or ivory white skin; brown, auburn, or strawberry blond hair; and blue, green, or hazel eyes. Avenaise women are tall (6’2” is not uncommon) and athletic; men are of average height and build.

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 2, and your Charisma score increases by 1.

Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and Avenaise.

Religion. Church of Serra (LG, LN, NG), Order of Akroma (LN),

Suggested Backgrounds. Women: Entertainer, Knight, Noble, or Soldier. Men: Criminal, Entertainer, Farmer, or Guild Artisan.

Chanteuse Magique*. You have proficiency in the Performance skill and one musical instrument of your choice. You also know one cantrip of your choice from the bard list; Charisma is your spellcasting ability for it.

Précision Mortelle*. You have the Sharpshooter feat.

Names. Avenaise names are French.

* NOTE: Ability Score Increase, Chanteuse Magique, and Précision Mortelle only apply to Avenaise women; Avenaise men are simply normal humans with the standard human ability score increase to each ability score.
