Circle of Tyrants
As the power of kingdoms waxes and wanes, so too do their people. Over many long centuries, many peoples have risen to great power only to fall into utter ruin. Some are still known to us, others lost to the mists. Those that remain are left to face the new aeon alone.
An aloof race of tall, pointy-eared humanoids. More myth than flesh, elves are believed to dwell in forests and mountains, practicing secret magicks both natural and arcane.
The dominant race of Akhtor. Humans are intuitive, harsh, pragmatic, and spiritual.
