Archives of Aastra
: Militant but orderly beings who live primarily North of Cossaria. The City of Passalio functions as the unofficial capitol of Hobgoblin lands. Partially nomadic by nature, they nonetheless protect their lands with efficiency. It is said that the Hobgoblin race was transported to Aastra from another world thousands of years ago.
: In past days, two races known as Orcs and Ogres lived in the realms. Ancient empires launched a grand campaign against Orcish lands, and took many slaves from among their tribes. The Orcs were bred with the primitive, lesser giants known as Ogres, and produced a race known as Orogs. Ogres have largely been hunted to extinction, and Orcs have long left these lands, but Orogs remain. Born slaves, Orogs are a simple folk used as brute labor.
: Like Hobgoblins, Lizardfolk and their relatives, the troglodytes, have not always lived on Aastra. It is also held that these races were taken from another world on placed on Aastra in days long past. Neither race are common. Scattered Lizardfolk tribes make their homes along the coast, and can be found most prevalent in the swampland North of Ankhand. Rumours hold that lands far to the East are run by Lizard kings.
