While there are many races with thriving societies in the world, the primary ones listed here are part of the Thule Consortium and the ones you are most likely to encounter without bloodshed. You may meet the occasional friendly goblin or kobold, but they don’t have a large representation within the Consortium. Which is not to say you don’t have information about some far off island in which goblins have a peaceful society where trade and commerce are more important than plunder. If such is the case, please share it with us.
Here are races which you may encounter. They are typically more uncivilized and their information is located in the Bestiary.
While not technically a race, the Grey Nomads wander all of the Thule Consortium and have members of every race in their ranks.
