The Chronicles In Skläer
Playable race: REMNANTS
History: Long ago, the Dark God, Gormogon, tired of his followers turning to his former ally and lover, Valeshaar, created the Remnant race as an army with which to war against her. Remnants, having no souls or free will, could not turn against him and could only foloow his orders. After the war, Gormogon granted most of his army the girt of free will, allowing tham to live a life of their own. in gratitude, the Remnants made a pact to worship only him, if any god, and to only breed inter-racially. Any Remnant who breaks this pact willingly is subject to the removal of his free will or destruction.
Society: Remnants are mostly wanderers and travelers. There are only a handful of Remnant societies and these are on important sites few and far between. Having no souls, Remnants can only feel stronger, primal emotions like envy, loneliness, fear and rage. They are most often of neutral alignment but are commonly misguided, used and manipulated. They hold Vessels and few Clerics in regard amongst themselves.
