Culture and Heritage

Geographic origin: Widespread from East Coast to West Coast, mainly on the Southern continent below the Great Lake.

This breed of Human is the most varied in culture due to their means of living, ranging from nomadic and water-faring to rural agricultural or urban cityscapes.

 

Magic

Paxians have a weaker magical heritage. Mages are known for divine and arcane studies, calling upon the attention of greater beings, and life and death magic. Culturally, mystics, shamanistic practices, and elemental sorcery are on the fringe.

A strong psionic heritage can be observed amongst the Paxians. Psions risk insanity attempting to live alone, but more Paxian psions have found each other over the centuries to create protected and stable clans. They try not to draw attention and do not seek psions from different cultures but will leave clans to seek more of their own.
