Races

All playable races are offshoots of “human” that have emerged over the last few thousand years, and stabilized into a few discrete “sub-races”. Below is a list of what is generally believed (correctly or not) to be each race’s ancestors:

  • Deva: Artificially created humans (homonculi) designed to preserve ancient lore.
  • Dragonborn: Half-monster (naga?) hybrids.
  • Dwarf: Slaves bred to survive permanently underground.
  • Eladrin: Humans who used technology to artificially extend their lifespans.
  • Elf: Humans who forsook cities and technology.
  • Gnome: Witchs’ servants and familiars.
  • Goliath: Genetically engineered warrior-slave race.
  • Half-elf: (These just represent a hybrid of any two races listed here – a homogeounous middleground.)
  • Half-orc: Feral humans.
  • Halfling: Deformed mutants.
  • Human: Relatively un-tainted humans.
  • Shifter: Half-werewolf hybrids.
  • Tiefling: Half-vampyre hybrids.
