Major Races of Solas

Humans

The race with the largest population and an expansionist attitude, humans are known for their dedication and curiosity as well as for their aggressiveness and inconstancy. Their cultural diversity and ability to adapt to almost any environment are famous. Humans have shown great skill at technical developments, but they often seem to be ignorant to the needs of their environment and neighbours. They are enduring and tough, their high reproduction rate allows them to survive even great catastrophes and spread out over the lands. They raise great kingdoms and worship the old gods of the North.

Trólls

The ancient, mysterious and secretive Chorvar live on the secluded island of Charbra. Not much is known about them and they are feared by most for their deep insight into magic and dark arts.
