Arguably the most territorial and pernicious race, humans are masters of their own destinies. Still, many of them feel they deserve better. Once slaves of the ancient dragonborn dynasties, humans won their freedom after considerable bloodshed, only to have their nations and kingdoms wiped away by the cataclysm that sank the continents. Since then, they’ve been colonizing as much of the remaining land as they can, hoping to one day become as powerful as the empires of old. Many humans hail from the shattered baronies of Bael Nerath, but they are found the world over in surprising numbers. If you play a human, here are some things to remember:
- Humans get along well with all the other races, including tieflings and dragonborn.
- Humans do not hold the greatest power in Iomandra right now.
- There’s a good chance that you’re the descendant of a great explorer or champion.
- As a human adventurer, you can seek to become an island magistrate or baron, the ruler of the unified kingdom of Bael Nerath, a legendary dragon-slayer, a ship captain, a Sea King with command of an armada, a high-ranking member of the Deeplantern Guild, a noble Knight of Ardyn, a wizard with the power to raise continents, or the leader of an influential guild or religious order.
