Races of Arcana - The Old Races

The Old Races

Before the arrival of the Elf Lords, the Western continent of Tarren was home to dozens of races, each locked in a constant war for supremacy. The warlike Dwarves, cunning Halflings, insidious Goblins, Swift Centaurs, reclusive Giants and brutish Minotaurs ruled vast swathes of land. The Elf lords brought most of these kingdoms to their knees and drove their populations into either slavery or the brink of extinction. With the collapse of Elven empire in the Mage War, some of the old races reclaimed their ancestral lands or built new kingdoms amidst the Elven ruins. Others still fled to more distant shores and built new kingdoms in Myrderos, Merinar and the Northern Isles.
