One of the surviving races of Eternal Flame, after its cataclysmic explosion. Before the explosion of the planet, the Acoza were a small destitute people, barely eking out mere existence. After the explosion, they were one of the few races that survived. Toiling hard, their fortunes turned after the disaster and in their struggle they steadily rose as a merchant class in their own area of the fractured planet, then became traveling merchants. They developed and built a fleet of blimp-like Tourdes, conducting business across the provinces of all five of the planet’s land masses, called the Independent Continental Provinces.
