Antagonistic Races

Antagonistic Races do not simply share their heritage or background: they differ from each other significantly. What connects them rather is their attitude to society and life - they often live in barbarity, cooperate to take what they want from civilised people and consider violence a completely normal part of life, glorifying it among themselves. They are often formidable warriors used to tribal tactics and raiding. They are native to Nelanther Isles - and thus to Vidal: arranging their mountain-homes or lairs within different parts of the island since long centuries. While they are more prone to being slain in action by vengeful adventurers, they possess skills that compensate this hostility they evoke in others - really making them foes to be considered.
