Humankind

“Tell me, Highness, why do your peers speak so harshly of humanity? We have little magic, we are easily killed and we have the shortest lives of every talking kind.”
“Child, at the age of forty, a human woman may have been breeding for twenty-five years and have a dozen or more children. If even half of those survive, that’s six additional pairs of hands that may be raised against your betters. By contrast, a dwarf or a halfling may have had one or two children. A sidhe, an orc or an elf will still be more than a decade away from breeding age. Those that hate humanity believe that without plagues, left to yourselves, given enough food, you would soon overcrowd the world.”
— An exchange between Queen Ashierra IV of Victing and Queen Rashellin of Memnalit, as recorded by Adaris the Cabrian in August of 3753.

Humans are the most common race in the Dragonfall setting. This applies equally to lands ruled by dragons, elves, orcs and others. The only exception are the far northern Sidhe lands. Between the cold and the vagaries of faerie magic, these areas are too inhospitable for human habitation.
