Delve into Nentir Vale
The Following information is in regards to the Races in the Fallcrest’s area.
No dragonborn are native to Fallcrest, but travelers occasionally pass through and take up work for a time, especially as bodyguards or caravan guards. The Halfmoon halflings, House Azaer, and the importer Naerumar have work available for a capable adventurer. Ecology of the Dragonborn
A fair number of dwarves live in Fallcrest, so a dwarf character could easily be a native of the city-perhaps a relative of Teldorthan Irontooth. If not, the nearest dwarven homeland is Hammerfast, a week’s travel distant. Merchants and crafters from Hammerfast travel to Fallcrest to trade or work, lodging in one of the local inns for a few weeks.
Eladrin are not often seen in Fallcrest. Some of the old manors in the Moon Hills and the nearby parts of the Vale were once the homes of well-off eladrin families; a player character eladrin might hold the title to an abandoned estate a mile or two out of town, which provides a good reason to call on Lord Markelhay.
Elves are also scarce in Fallcrest, but a small number reside in and around the town. Ressilmae Starlight of the temple of Sehanine might be a relative or an old friend of an elf character. Elves from outside Fallcrest might belong to the Woodsinger clan from the Harkenwold Forest.
The Splitpaw Clan of gnolls turned from the path of Yeenoghu decades ago and swore themselves to the Goddess Melora, only to be slaughtered and enslaved a generation later by their own demon-worshiping kin. Some of the Splitpaw Clan have escaped death and slavery and now live as adventurers. Playing Gnolls
A small number of half-elves reside in Fallcrest or the vicinity. Most are well-off farmers or herders living in the Moon Hills near the town; the rest are expert artisans-jewelers, tailors, or woodworkers-in the town. A half-elf player character can be the child or relative of a Fallcrest family.
Halflings are the most numerous people in Fallcrest aside from humans, and they come from any walk of life. A Fallcrest native might be related to the Halfmoon family, the Ostermans of the Silver Unicorn, or the Thistletons of Fallcrest Stables. Halflings descended from the traders who pass through Fallcrest can be members of the Swiftwater clan.
Most of Fallcrest’s people are human. Characters with rural backgrounds likely grew up on the farms in the nearby Moon Hills. Characters with an urban upbringing might be the children of well-off landowners such as the Kamroths, or ruffians and sellswords who had a hard childhood in Lowtown.
Minotaurs once held the city of Saruun Khel within the depths of Thunderspire Mountain. Some Minotaurs have seen that following wicked ways may not be their purpose in life, and have shunned Baphomet in favor of Melor and Bahumat.
Two tiefling families and a few individuals live and thrive in Fallcrest, including the Azaers and the Naerumars.
Warforged are not natives to Nentir Vale as no known creation forges are here. A people created for war, they seek to make a living. They can be of any occupation who are seeking to find themselves in the Borderlands. Playing Warforged
