More lore than your heroic eyes can possibly journey through!
Simutronics designers Steph Shaver and Mike Doscher introduce us to a couple player races in "Hero's Journey" and to the inspiration behind an enemy clan's architecture. Lore makes my head hurt faster than opera night at a karaoke bar, but it's nice to see the kids enjoying themselves!
The Stoneborn include the stoic Burians, who excel as miners, metalworkers and brewers, and the Qwi, who are master tinkerers and builders. The combination has yielded many technological advances. Among the Ilvari, the ethereal Mistfolk are dedicated to magic and its secrets, while the Earthfolk focus on nature. The feline Suwari were once the former's pets. They too follow dual beliefs, the fastidious Domesticates being city dwellers whereas the Ferals embrace the wilderness. The original Old Blood Humans are stalwart and sturdy, while the Togs, who are easily distinguished by their greenish skin, are usually slightly taller and even bulkier.
