Known to many as The Wild, the central plains of Aydonaar are inhabited by orcs and goblins. These groups are tribal and generally fight with each other and will occasionally raid border towns. Goblins are widely roving and territorial, attacking whoever they come across.
Many of the mountain regions are home to both dwarves and orcs. These two races have been locked in an ancient struggle and hate each other fiercely. Several dwarven clans have been able to create prosperous and established control in the central mountains, notably the dwarves of Aran Dul, while in the north and east orc power seems to be growing. Dwarves are generally accepted in the outside/civilized world while orcs are very rarely seen in peaceable circumstances.
There is little known about the northern tundra, mountains and wastes. Goliaths will venture out and the rare traveler is seen in southern lands. Several other races make their home in those frigid lands but it would take a determined traveler to make the long journey north.
