The Races of Matyr

Their lives have been one initially of constant turmoil and abandonment, being driven from one homeland to the next, though now since the Second Era they have entrenched themselves within their new homes with the intent to stay. While the hot-blooded race of Men continues to change, the cold-hearted race of Dwarves continue to mine and crave for what was lost, the evil-minded race of Goblins continue to pillage, and the tragic race of Beastfolk continue to be driven out, the Elves continue their own ancient traditions as the eldest and wisest of the five races.
