The available races and a few notes about them.

Borek

Borek are an old race, one of the original inhabitants of Diamova. They are a race steeped in magic, their eyes are not like most races but are webs or veins of bright color. Borek are considered mature in thier late twenties. They live for an average of 150-200 years.

In the past many people had relationships with the Borek. This has led to the Orc, Halfling, and Gnome races.

Dwarf

Dwarves live primarily in the mountains of Begezachte, however a few can be found living outside the mountain country, working for their clans or choosing a life away from other dwarves. Dwarves only rarely will marry outside their race. Those that do find it even rarer to have children, usually only with humans. Those that do are frequently shunned since they will never continue the family line.

Dwarves usually live 200-250 years.

Half-Orc

Half orcs are fairly well known among human and orcs, the relation among the races has usually been cool but individuals can relate quite well and often find themselves attracted to each other if they can get past the disparate cultures.

Human

Genasi

The Genasi are children of those that have entreated with the elements to aid them in having children. Those that are unable to do so have entered the elemental planes with their spouses and when they return will have a child in due time. These children have the elements steeped in their blood. While the basic appearances are undeniably that of their parents they sport hair that flows like water or flickers with flames and their skin also reflects the element that they were conceived under. No Genasi have lived long enough to die of old age. They mature in roughly 20 years.

Goliath

The goliath are usually found living in the harsh lands of the High Wilds or atop towering Mount Crown. Occasionally they will be found elsewhere in Diamova.

Orc

Orcs are a semi-nomadic people, they will move around established territories migrating to follow the seasons and needs of the clan. Typical tribes will have a conclave of elders representing each of the craftmasters. These include the metalworkers, tanners, shaman, hunters, and warband. Each of these elders will have 2-3 adult learning the trade under them. The rest of the adults in the tribe are assigned to where there is need, usually hunting or fighting.
When an orc reaches their early teens and seeks to be considered an adult they are given a quest. This is typically to hunt and kill enough tenkos to make a necklace of their teeth. When this quest is completed the aspiring orc youngling is ready to earn his/her name. This name is provided by the adults of the clan and may take years to earn. Whenever someone thinks that some-orc has done something particularly praise-worthy they will suggest a name for the orc in front of the conclave. If a majority of the conclave or most of the tribe agree to this name then it is granted to the orc to accept.

Child Names – Frequently use harsh consonants.
Svena, Vesh, Zorak, Tzoka
Warrior Names- Usually have softer sounds.
Dhara, Bakama, Jageth,

Non-playable races

Centaur

The centaur are a militant and proud race that many would describe as half horse and half man. They are creatures of passion and power,not taken to much of the subtlety that other races will take for granted.
The centaur live in the plateaus and plains north of Galsconey. They share a long animosity with the orcs and have warred with Galsconey for longer than anyone can remember. They have limited technological skills, only crafting special stone weapons on their own. However they do raid and trade for metal to make themselves metal gear.

Goblins

The origin of the goblins is not definitively known. Stories say that they were created by one of the elven factions during the Unification War as saboteurs and raiders. The goblins own natural cunning and proclivity for mayhem does lend some strength to this story. Since being conned by the powerful bloodmage Kionna the goblins have struggled to make themselves a more “civilized” people in their dealing with others. They now do trade with the town of Milvania and have a small temple of wind that they maintain on the fringe of the Lowwe Wilds.
