That Which is Forgotten
Races of Arda
Only recently coming into power, humans haven’t played a large role in world history yet. Always being the supporter of other races such as elves, dwarves, and Eladrin. However, near the end of the 3rd Era, they drove the Goblins from the North lands, and formed the Kingdom of Lorentia. Humans can be found in every corner of the world. They actually make up the majority of the population. Their roles in life vary, from noble men and officials to bandits and highway men and everything in between.
Once being the top dogs of Arda, the elves tend to live in secluded scattered societies now. They ruled the forested area of Arda when most of it was still wilderness. But after the other races started to cut down the trees to build better defenses and weapons. The Elves were forced to retreat back into the woods, and there they stayed. Today they play a small roll in society living in secluded and scattered communities. They act as rangers patrolling the far Western Edge to watch for Orcs and Goblins.
The Dwarves have been shaped by the mountains that they have lived in for so long. Sturdy and Stout, they carve and tunnel their way through the ground. They were the first to build war machines and forge steel. This was one of the factors that lead to their domination of the post-dragon Arda. At one time, they ruled most of the land. This ended due to the Goblins. Now they rule the Southern lands in their kingdom Reknarish.
