• The Horselords: The eldest of the tribal groups they live in the central western grasslands. They are a rust brown skin and black-haired people who hold tribal life above all else.

• All gnomes in Daytar Leamay are forest gnomes, most live in Yannes.

Orc and 1/2 Orc While few full blooded orcs live inside the kingdom, preferring to stay in the Dark forest, the Badlands and The Steppes, their spawn are strangely common in the nation. Their skin tones tend to green, olive or brown. They have brown or black eyes and black hair. They have pronounced lower canine teeth and pointed ears. They often smell bad as well but that may be from lack of bathing.
Dragonfall barbarian clan are skilled hunters and live “at peace” with the peoples of Daytar Leamay. They are industrious and better skilled than their less civilized kin. Dragonfall clan has far more human and 1/2 Orcs than Hammerfall.
Hammerfall barbarian clan are combative, aggressive and gold hungry. They are the more violent and bloodthirsty of the tribes. They often attack travelers along the western way in The Badlands.
Gorish Clan care little of the land of men and prefer the depths of The Dark Forest and subjugating the goblins and other lesser creatures that live there.

Other Races Many other races exist around Daytar Leamay; Goblin-kin, Assimar, Tiefling, Genasi, Dragonborn, Drow, Druggar, Centaur, Half- anything, and many others. However, legally these people’s “personhood” must be established under the law by a Justiciar and papers drawn to prove so. They are not assumed to have the rights of other races without these official documents.
