Labyrinths & Liontaurs


Back to Races


You are adaptable and versatile, and your kind have quickly spread to every terrain. You may adventure for any reason at all, and a great many humans do. Exploration, adventure, riches, curiosity, trade, settlement, and missionary work motivate many humans. Perhaps you embody the greatest human motivation of all: because it is there. Humans can and do excel in every role, from warrior to wanderer, from monk to magic user.


Introduction: Humans are the youngest of the civilized races of demi-humans (a term coined by humans, though considered a put-down by other demi-humans). They have spread far and fast, and their adaptability has allowed them to become the dominant race in the world. Humans tend to have big families, to be ambitious, and to embrace change (which they call "progress"). Iron and steel are human inventions, and superior arms and armor has helped them in their rise.

Appearance: Humans range from under five feet to well over six feet in height. They may weigh under 100 lbs or over 300. Humans are robust and healthy, surpassed in endurance only by dwarves, but with a vibrant energy that has worked well to fuel human success. Depending on the local culture, their fashions may range from pants, shirts and tunics to kilts, togas, sarongs, and more. Their eye, hair, and skin colors also vary widely.

Society: The human tendency to experiment means that there is no standard human society. Governments range from monarchies to theocracies to republics to even more unusual options. Some human societies are modest and conforming; others are wild and raucous. Most humans are farmers or fishers, but many have flocked to new remarkable human cities. A human might be any alignment at all.
