The Dark Bargain
- Catfolk ( Báo) are savages who live in the jungle, hunting dinosaurs and other large prey. They have very little concept of individual property, but are not kleptomaniacs. They only take what they need. They are nomadic, so they are unaccustomed to locks, doors, and handles. They live in large family groups called Prides.
- Dwarves are not subterranean gold-mongers. They are divinely-appointed defenders of the mortal realm from Giants and their slaves.
- Elves are very similar to ancient meso-american (Aztec, Mayan) cultures, including the sacrifice of sentient beings and prisoners. These sacrifices uphold their divine shields that keep the bloodthirsty monsters of the jungle at bay. They are considered very uncivilized by Humans.
- Giants were the original creations of the Gods, but tried to take the Divinity of the Gods and were imprisoned beneath the Earth. When some get out, they try their best to destroy all that the Gods have created.
- Humans are the only “civilized” race other than the Dwarves. There are uncivilized ones, but they live to the north. The “civilized” Humans are very discriminatory towards uncivilized humanoids, seeing them as lesser beings.
- Lykos are savage, cannibalistic humanoids who vie for control of the North with the tribal Humans and Orug. They tend to live alone and hunt what they can by themselves, but when a larger prey comes around, they will band together and hunt it.
- Naga are serpentine humanoids who live in pairs. They inhabit the islands of the jungles and there can be up to 6 pairs of naga living on any given island. They claim that they are the chosen race to bring the world to perfection. Though they seem few in numbers, they should not be underestimated.
- Orug replace orcs in this world. They are descended from humans who were slaves to the Giants, and their body and genes have been changed by it. They can breed true with other orugs, but they can still breed with humans, the father determining the species of the child of such a union. Civilizes humans consider them a demonic race and are very judgmental of them.
- Saurans are dragon-descended humanoids who search the world for their ancestors, who seem to be extinct. There are small and medium ones, but only other races bother judging them based on their size. They live in large family groups. They rarely leave the jungle.
