The Dzung live to the north of the center of the world, in the cruel mountains and vast, unknown high plains beyond.
The Dzung ride kurka — their flying lizards — in flocks of hundreds upon hundreds. Each Dzung adult raises a kurka, hatched around the time of their own weaning. As the child learns to walk, the kurka hatchling learns to fly, and they grow together. Once grown, the rider will rarely leave the saddle, and Dzung felt tent villages are made with paths wide enough for the occupants to travel about, mounted on beasts who could look over the walls of any but the greatest cities in the center of the world.
