The Wheel and Serpent
“No chains, No emperors, Brothers All”

Cultural- The seamen of Garrowsworn are known for two things, their rebellious nature and their hatred of the Aemillians. This puts them at odds with most of the pastimes and culture of the empire. Slavery and imperialism most of all they feel the most aversion to. This makes them one of the few societies within Gesca who could be called champions of the common man. Since most of it’s citizens are at sea or near the sea, scrimshaw, rowing songs, and other arts of the sea hold strong in the Garrowsworn armada.
