A peek at an NPC human soldier
As you take your first step into Azuregard, the first race that you'll become acquainted with are the humans. In terms of development, humans have come a long way from their ancient clannish origins as they've tamed the wilds to settle down. With time, clan bonds dissolved in many locales as people united for the common good to create villages, then towns, then cities, then, ultimately, kingdoms and empires. The artwork you see before you is an example of a stalwart NPC soldier who's dedicated his services in defense of his Kingdom, whether it's keeping order within the Kingdom or defending it from orcish or the occasional barbarian incursions.
When Azuregard came into being, we knew that humans would be the dominant species on the continent. Their ability to adapt and be flexible has long given them an advantage when moving and settling down in new areas while their relatively shorter lifespan (compared to that of elves and dwarves) have pushed them, perhaps by necessity, to achieve as much as possible so that they may make their mark upon the world.
Couple that with their diversity and you've got a lot of material to cover and endless stories that can be crafted! Humanity's boundless capacity to shock, amaze, and awe are what makes them such fascinating subjects as do their part to keep Project Phoenix immersive and engaging. Furthermore, as the story and world is better laid out, we'll have more information about the various societies that dot the world of Azuregard, from agrarian communities with a laid-back approach to life, to highly regimented cultures that, due to constant threats from outside, are on constant alert for threats to their homeland.
