Human, PrehistoricEdit

Prehistoric humans are now extinct (or mostly extinct) humans from the far past, they possess greater strength and fortitude than their modern counterpart but are less intelligent and versatile. This race is meant to encompass primitive and proto-human species such as the homo erectus, neanderthal to the cro-magnon man.


Prehistoric humans were humans and thus have similar personality variation as modern humans. They tended to be more pragmatic and utilitarian but many had artistic and inventive bents.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Prehistoric humans are very varied in appearance, from the tall and stocky neanderthal to the mostly modern looking Cro-Magnon man. Typically prehistoric humans have a generally heavy body with a strong musculature and harsher facial traits.


Prehistoric humans were seen with disdain by dwarves and elves, who saw them at the same level as orcs who themselves saw prehistoric human as rival.


Prehistoric humans were pretty diverse alignment wise, although their communal nature pushed the slight majority toward lawful alignment.


Prehistoric humans mostly inhabited the same land as human now inhabit.


Prehistoric humans worshipped the old deities of fertility, war and hunt.


Prehistoric humans spoke strange proto-common, if a prehistoric human was to be transported into modern time it would have a hard time communicating.


To be honest I have no idea.
