The world is populated by the following Sophont peoples:
Man (aka human): live in many places and adaptable to many climates. Capable of using magic
Elf: The people of Malann occasionally trade with the occasional elven merchant, but due to the desert that separates the two they are rarely met.
Stories tell of several other creatures, who's existence has yet to be determined.
Dragons: Mythical, fire-breathing lizards of extraordinary intelligence and size. Some stories claim they can use magic, others claim they cannot.
Fae: Mythical sprites and faeries of good fortune. Perhaps the result of the misinterpretation of magic, or run-away golemantic constructs.
Dwarf: Short, stocky human-like peoples whose durability is legendary.
