On the surface, humans are now more common than any other race, but they are still the minority. If you count folk who live underground, perhaps orcs outnumber humans
- but who can say? Humans crave comfort and power and due to their short lives they are ambitious and industrious. They have taken well to city life and farming alike. Humans are pretty much as you’d expect, with the caveat that they have to share power more than they’d like to due to the power of other races.
Race Relations: Humans associate commonly with dwarves but sometimes find them patronizing. “If they’re so smart how come they almost got wiped out by the dragons? If it weren’t for Mirithian they’d all be dead now.” “They keep talking about going underground to catch up with their kin, why don’t they hurry up and get on with it?” When humans talk about elves they are probably talking about wilder elves (etharch and high elves are more reclusive). “Elves are eco-terrorists who care more about squirrels than us humans.” “They sure are pretty though—-I’d love to do one!” “I hear they’d as soon shoot a human as an orc.” Humans fight and even co-mingle with orcs. Orcs are brutal by nature, which offends more civilized humans, but garners respect from barbarians. “Orcs are brutal, vicious, psycho-paths that can’t be trusted.” “If I’m in a serious fight, I’d rather have an orc on my side than just about anyone.” Humans fear dragons. “If the dragons go on the warpath again it’s us humans that will bear the brunt of the attack!” “Let’s go kill one.”
