From the Dark
Ratfolk are one of the bestial races of the land. They can be found in many places, but almost never in great numbers and usually hidden in some way. If they are commonly found anywhere, it is assisting gnomes. Ratfolk are very good at tinkering and aren’t afraid of any kind of magic, so gnomes find them to be valuable assistants. They are also occasionally come across in the Great Desert, as they are very good at surviving in harsh landscapes.
Other than gnomes, ratfolk do not get much respect from other races. They don’t have a curse or foul magics to blame their forms on. They are who they are and they try their best to be proud of that. There are some who venture into the mists, seeking to prove their worth.
