The Savages are the pre-settlement inhabitants of Aerna. They are usually human, although orc, goblin, and half-orc savages are not uncommon. They previously lived further away from The Woods but the new settlers forced them inland. The Woods have had a terrible effect on the savages; they have become even more blood thirsty and ruthless than ever before. Indeed, there is a more specific type of savage, nicknamed “Reavers,” that are literally insane.
