The Nidya are a Minor Faction.


Though bird-like in their appearance, the Nidya are closer to humanoid than one might think. The young are birthed, not hatched, and like other advanced peoples their habitats are carefully chosen for defense, foraging, and observation.

Due to their wingspan and hunting traditions, the Nidya are not particularly attracted to living in trees. Building their tunnels and nests instead for easy access and escape, the Nidya keep a careful eye on their surroundings.
