Humanity persists even into the modern age. Once humanity was divided into nations, each with their own heritage and territory, but that organization is a thing of the past. Only one or two actual sovereign nations exist, as most of humanity resides in The Central Wastes, toiling away in a Boomtown trying to strike it rich. Most of these settlements are self-governed and largely human, though they are essentially owned by the Dwarves. Outside of The Central Wastes a few human nations persist, including Malvaryn and the republic of Dresk, a nation of fishermen and sailors on the southern coast.
