RacesEdit

Dwarves - The Dwarven race as in Ulvania, but supposed to have been created from a failed second attempt by Ismyr to create Vvana from a block of magykal ice, in which the ice shattered, hence their short stature. Cast into the earth after the War with the Jotnir and the Dwarves. It is interesting to note that these myths existed long before The Exodus of the Dwarves, suggesting there is some degree of truth in the myth.

Jotnir - A race of Giants. Born from the first attempt to scuplt Vvana by Ismyr. Cast into the earth after the War with the Jotnir and the Dwarves. Referenced in the Vermundi Scroll as the servants of the Hrithmi or Ancient Ones, but this is not mentioned anywhere else and is usually discarded. 

Valkyries - The daughters of Skryd and the Nyrdic hero, Madhren, tasked by Ormyr to escort the worthy dead to Valskal. Further divided into Firstborns (those born from Skryd and Madhren) and Halfsisters (those born to other Valkyries)
