Within the world of Cairne, there are four other races that inhabit its lands. Three were brought into being as a direct result of the Blight, and the other was nearly wiped out completely by it. While other races do exist, none of them have founded civilizations large enough or prominent enough to be counted as importantly as the rest of them. There was at one time a large settlement of halflings on the edge of the Forests of the Gaul Do Shah, but as the Elves went mad, those poor folk were the first to discover how deep that madness went. They were wiped out over the course of a week in the raids that followed. There may be one seen on occasion, but they are lone wanderers with no home or governmental representation to protect them. The gnomes that once shared territory with the dwarves were lost to the darkness that overtook their portion of Underhome and no trace of them remains. It is believed that they are now extinct. Any planar races died out long ago as the portals went out and the ability to create them was lost when the Gods departed and magic was outlawed. They are hunted down if one does appear and treated as a hostile threat in line with the Pact's new anti-magic laws.
