Kingdoms of Man
Humans come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and can choose any profession. It seems that humankind is capable of anything, from profound love to extreme hatred and violence. Humans have a relatively short life span and can learn skills and trades with lightning speed. This ability is both boon and bane.
There are additional Human realms beyond the borders of the Free Kingdom, many of which await discovery, and though not common enough to be a normal payable race they may still be encountered from time to time.
The Humans of the Free Kingdom are based on a feudal society with a limited monarchy, ruled by a beloved and just Queen. Parliament is composed of those of the noble caste, and the common man is both dedicated to the lands and to his or her Lord or Lady. Notes: A Kingdom Human does not have to belong to a Duchy, but if they choose to they gain both a specific ability, at the cost of being answerable to the militia of the Duchy they belong to.
"Family is the rock on this never ending road that stretches before us." These are the haunted wanderers that travel the land. Although only the Matriarchs and Vezeto of their kind can truthfully speak on their origins, most others suspect some terrible event led to their nomadic ways and resulted in their ability to level the dreadful Evil Eye on an attacker or wrongdoer. The Romanovi themselves are often linked with the “Creatures of the Night”. While this may or may not mean that a particular Romanovi is evil, there is definitely a connection between Romanovi and both lycanthropes and the Undead.
The Humans of the Farseni Empire are based loosely on Moorish and Persian medieval cultures. They are known to be well educated and are mostly encountered as nomads and merchants in the Free Kingdoms. Once, they were a great empire with many lands under their rule, but they are now in decline. The Jal’Khandian were once the servants of the Farseni Empire and their war for freedom may have been the last nail in the coffin towards the empire’s final decline.
The Farseni Empire has long been rumored to be ruled by a dragon and many have heard the proclamations throughout the land, but none claim to have seen the emperor in the flesh.
