Dokkalfar (DAHK-al-far) • Alluring, magical dark elves. Inhabit the port city of Rathir

Gnomes • Scholars, inventors, soldiers, and schemers. The gnomes have built the Well of Souls as a means of offering immortality, but so far it has only worked once - on the player character

Mitharu (mith-AH-roo) • God of Order, often invoked in response to bad or troubling news
