Ambitious, drive, pragmatic - race of heroes and also a race of villains.
Of all the civilized races, humans are the most adaptable and diverse. Human settlements can be found almost anywhere, and human morals, customs, and interests vary greatly. Since the fall of the last human empire, several kingdoms have spawned, some fell and some live on, but without the hope of uniting together to a great empire.
Play a human if you want...
- to be a decisive, resourceful hero with enough determination to face any challenge.
- to have the most versatility and flexibility of any race.
- to be able to excel at any class you choose.
Physical Qualities Edit
Humans come in a wide variety of heights, weights and colors. Human attire varies wildly, depending on the environment and society in which they live. Their clothing can be simple, ostentatious, or anything in between. It's not unusual for several distinct human cultures to live side by side in a particular area and mingle, so human armor, weaponry and other items incorporate a variety of designs and motifs.
Humans average life spans of about 75 years, though some venerable members of the race live as long as 90 or more years.

Playing a Human Edit
Humans are decisive and sometimes rash. They explore the darkest reaches of the world in search of knowledge and power. They hurl themselves into danger, dealing with consequences as they arise. They act first and ponder later, trusting their will to prevail and their native resourcefulness to see them through perilous situations.
Humans always look to the horizon, seeking to expand their influence and territory. They chase power and want to change the world, for good or for ill. Also they are tolerant to other races, different beliefs and foreign cultures. Most human settlements are diverse places where different races live together in relative peace. The human empire of Nerath, the last great world power, united many different peoples. Most of the human towns that have survived the empire's fall are fortified bastions against the encroaching darkness.
Despite the far reach and power of Nerath, humans in the present day are a scattered and divided people. Dozens of small kingdoms and free cities have arisen from Nerath's ruins and many of these realms are petty, weak, or isolated.
