Humans are the most common race in the lands of Terris. Humans adapt easily to their surroundings, and vary widely in coloring of hair and eyes. They range in height from 5 feet to well over 6 feet. Humans generally live to reach the maximum age of 100. Humans reside in most every city in Terris, and generally have medium sized families.
A huge tome, written over the course of a lifetime, the ‘Guide to Norland’ has been created by human scholar Dahwyn to detail all aspects of life in the realms. The following extract may be of some interest to Humans in the realm
The humans who inhabit the realm of Terris can vary widely in appearance and custom. Over time spent in different environments, clear bloodlines of Humans have emerged, each one loosely affiliated with an area around the great cities and Towns of the land. Devardec, for example is said to be the ‘home’ of the Southern Hosts, whilst Tranos produces the folk of the Western Seas. The cold winters around Frostfall have shaped the people of the Northern Wastes, whilst a life of ease in the Barony of Goldcroft has shaped those of the Eastern reaches. Even those who live in the flat plains of the Wildlands have grown their own appearance, distinct from the ordered ways of City peoples…..
….Unlike the other races of the realm, the Humans have no language of their own as such, having spread Kulan, which was once their own, to all the other races in the realms. Whilst this has made their lives relatively easy, some bards bemoan the lack of expression and loss of racial identity that this heralds. Meanwhile, merchants are quick to shout them down.
Similarly, Humans also lack the specific support of a Champion that the other races enjoy. Other races have various views on this, from regarding Humans as versatile enough not to need support, to considering them generally not important enough to need a helping hand from the heavens. Humans tend to follow their chosen Immortal all the more ardently than other races, as they have no other divine being to fall back on, although many claim the kindly eye of Deori the creator is all they need.
Wildlands blood carries within it a sense of life and a joy in being outdoors, most carry tanned skin pigmentation, males often grow heavy beards or strong moustaches while the females are slim of build with dark hair.
