Albion

Indigenious Races:

Humanity: By far one of the most powerful (or at least visible) races on Ald, second only to Rana. Humans inhabit the nation of Albion, but have colonies all over the known world. The origin of Humanity is a mystery. On average, humans believe that they were created by the Gods, and are favored by the prevailing God , Era. Others believe that Humans may be decscended from any number of other races, from Dwarves, Giants, Elves, etc. This theory is widely held by the Daeva of Rana, who believes their achievement in crossbreeding humans with other races as slave stock is due to their common ancestory.

Languages:

High Draxian: The church of Era teaches that Era taught Draxian to all sentiant life on the planet, and that Languages such as Dwarvish and Elvish are bastardizations of the original. Draxian is known to be Humanity’s first language, but it’s link to other languages is suspect. High Draxian is technically a “dead” language, but is still used in formal settings in Albion. High Draxian is commonly known by Albion Nobles, Knights, and Mages (many magic tomes are written in Draxian).

Common: Called as such because of it’s ease to learn and it universal use. Common is based on the Human “Draxian” langauge, but overtime has changed to accomadate words from many other languages, including Dwarvish, Elvish, Halfling, and Rana. Anyone who assosciates with a trading society can learn common.
