On Skraelings

Physical Description
Skraelings are a small human race(average1.60m for male, 1.55m for female), with tan skin color, thin but quite muscular silhouette, and are very agile.

Social Structure
Skraelings seems to by the most gender-equal society of the Barbaric Frontier. Males are in charge of hunting and gathering food, also for protection. Females are in charge of intertribal politics, trade and child-raising. The highest position among the tribe has the shaman whom could be both man and woman. The warchiefs are chosen from male members of the tribe. The lowest strata among skraelings' society occupy slaves.

Most of the Skraelings worship Great Mother and her children(nature spirits and deamons).
Religion of Skraelings is a shamanistic one, with each tribe's totem cult. Human sacrafice and ritualistic cannibalism are common things.

All the other nations and races hate and despise Skraelings. With no exceptions.
