The Humans are a valorous and strong race. Their indomitable spirit has allowed them to constantly work towards bringing peace and stability to a barren wasteland filled with strife. Today, humans are seen as civilization’s best hope to restore the former glory of all of Arborea.
Cursed by their god to wander without a homeland, the humans turned their adversity to advantage by using their long exile as a learning experience. They studied the culture and crafts of other races, and forged their own destiny without guidance from their neglectful deity. Now, as creators of the Valkyon Federation, they are admired and respected by all the nations of the world for their role in bringing together the coalition that will defeat the argons and return the world to peace at last.
The race of humans was created by Gidd, who turned his back on them when they petitioned him for a homeland. When the first humans conspired to steal Gidd’s priceless treasures, he cursed them to wander forever. As the Divine War drew to a close, the curse on the humans lifted. Velik, goddess of the hunt, took pity on the humans and granted them the homeland they’d long been denied. Their capital today is the beautiful city of wheels she created for them.
Humans today are at the forefront of a new military coalition and political movement—the Valkyon Federation. Joined with five other races eager to put the divisions of the past behind them, humans are the dreamers, the builders, the uniters that make this time different from all times that came before.
Velika: the City of Wheels; the City of Falcons. Velik’s Dream. The magnificent human capital, built for her human charges by Velik herself, is known by many names. It is the political and cultural center of life in southern Arun—a vital and forward-looking city, despite the hardships of war. Velik’s wheel turns ceaselessly at its center, providing magical energy to power the city’s workshops and factories.
