THE CIRCLE OF LIGHT
Humans average 5 feet 7 inches in height and weigh an average of 150 pounds. They produce less body hair than most races, but more than elves. Skin tone ranges from ebony to tan and pinkish-white. Their ears are small and rounded. Humans reach physical maturity in their teens and live a natural span of 75 years, though individuals have been know to live 100 years or longer.
Humans feel a natural loyalty to their families. Inclined to form social groups, humans easily transfer this loyalty to tribes, cities, or kingdoms, though they do not adapt to large-scale society as well as dwarfs. This reluctance to pledge allegiance to a government does not prevent them from quickly adapting dwarven advances into their own cultures.
Humans prefer to live in roofed dwellings, clustered with others of their kind. They have adopted the dwarven invention of the city, though many human cities spring up in too haphazard a fashion for dwarven tastes. Most humans find elven communities unsettling.
