  • Duergar

    The duergar were the second race known to inhabit [[Ammunar]], and the first to reach it by following the byways between dimensions. They must have co-existed with the native [[elf|elves]] for a while, building their homes under the mountains and …

  • Elf

    The first known people were the elves, who lived in [[Ammunar]] since time immemorial. Without records stretching back before the [[First Invasion]] it’s unlikely that any races prior to them will be known, though many ancient ruins and the like are of …

  • Eladrin

    The Eladrin are the descendants of [[elf|elves]] taken as slaves by the [[duergar]]. They proved a problem when the wars against the [[human]]s and free elves turned against their masters, as their freedom was one of the stipulations of the peace treaty …

  • Nangadi

    The nangadi are a culture of [[tiefling]]s found in the north. Rather than confining themselves to the cities, these tieflings live out of their wagons, setting up tents each night then pulling them down again and moving on the next--much like …

  • Dwarf

    The true dwarfs are the [[duergar]] but their the lives and minds are moot to most people. By far the majority of interactions with dwarfs are with the New Dwarfs, the mediating dwarfs who were apparently developed by their older brethren to be more like …

  • Playing a Dwarf

    All dwarfs are members of extended family clans, and treat their relatives with warmth. Others, both dwarf and other races, are less trusted. Many dwarfish clans carried on their role in [[duergar]] society for the [[Ilmand Empire|Empire]], and then …

  • Halfling

    There is little to say about this race, and if they could be asked as a whole they would likely say they are happy with that. Halflings have avoided major entanglements with other races by sticking to largely impenetrable swamplands along some major …

  • Playing an Elf

    In the [[Dawn Years]], elves are widely perceived as woodsmen without equal, but this fails to capture the whole picture. [[Human]]s who had to live in the far north would be barbarian nomads, and its often assumed that the same is true for elves. …

  • Human

    The most numerous race on [[Ammunar]] (totaling about as many as all others combined), Humans dominate the eastern part of [[Usteidunn]] and the coastal regions of [[Sarakri]]. They once controlled the entirety of both subcontinents, but have lost much …

  • Tiefling

    Isolated-yet-in-touch like the [[halfling]]s, the tieflings are more so by inclination than by anything else. Their legends state that their salvation from the doomed world of [[Baelturath]] came at the cost of some infernal pact. The pact is long since …

  • Dragonborn

    The lives of the dragonborn are ruled by their lack of numbers. Unlike the other races, they had no land to claim as their own, and indeed they came to [[Ammunar]] in a slow trickle instead of a flood like the other interlopers. Dragonborn stories say …

  • Galeb Duhr

    Very little is known about the galeb duhr. They are a rare race once associated with the [[elf|elves]]. When the [[duergar]] came to Ammunar they lived in the same mountains that the invaders coveted, and could not escape to the wild forests. Even worse, …
