The world of Epoch is populated by a variety of peoples. These include several cultural groups of humans, The Fey (Elves, Dwarves, Halflings, Kaern, Orcs, Fauns, and Arluru) and other humanoid creatures. These groups have many differences in what they believe and how they conduct their day-to-day business. While individual members of theses groups may get along, it is these differences which separate the peoples. These pages contain common conventions about each of these racial/cultural groups. These conventions have been developed by players who have experience in playing members from these groups. However, these conventions are presented to spark character ideas, not to limit them. The world Epoch is large and varied. There is plenty of room for local variations and quaint local customs.
