Legacy of the Silver Raven
Known for its powerful dragon descendant warriors and mind-healers. As a wartorn race living in proximity to warring tribes of trolls (highlanders), battle is like a religion to them, much like samurai. Ages of wars with the quickly-multiplying, warmongering highlanders caused them to practice wargames in their massive arenas to keep fighting instinct and tactics a part of childhood development. They have extensive knowledge of forging weapons and armor, thanks to techniques learned from their former neighbors and trade-partners in Mithora. They generally live longer than humans, but do not reproduce quickly, and eventually become outnumbered by the highlanders. Thera was lost to Highlanders during the War of the Dragon, and has since been abandoned due to flooding.
