They came from the south-east, those lands that are now trodden into deserts.
Their leather-clad feet trampling the plants into the ground and storming the endless forest until it yielded to them. Bowing to their strength and brutality, pressing into the lands the reminders of them and their beings.
They brought with them new thoughts and ideas that terrified many.
These mortal youth that saw the passage of history in a way so different than we could even comprehend. What is the landscape of time if you can't see beyond a single trough.
They came from the lands beyond the southern seas, and stormed our forests.
The Humans brought us our first real understanding of mortality by cutting through our lands and forcing us to acknowledge them, many will never forgive them for that.
Humans are the most adaptable and ambitious people among the common races. Whatever drives them, humans are the innovators, the achievers, and the pioneers of the worlds. As such Humans are, by far, the most widespread race in Ithungsida. With their population outnumbering the rest of the races combined. Humans attempt to arrest the growth of their population with the things they do best. Ill fated expeditions, Iffy science, and of course, wars. Whether mercenaries, pirates, or front line men, Humans are found on every battlefield.
They are not, however, limited to the battlefield. They are just as happy in most any other role. From adventurers to entertainers, the options are effectively endless.
