A note on races

Humans appear to be the most populous race within the Gift, certainly covering the most ground around the centre of the island world.
Other races are present and have had different levels of interaction with the humans, but all have either become rarely seen or disappeared entirely. Human’s have developed a strong disliking of other races through this forced exile due to ignorance and fear of the unknown. While usually this manifests only in cruel words and harsher prices it does occasionally result in violence.
There are exceptions to this rule. The King’s lands in theory are policed and open to all cultures and so the racism is slightly less strong there. The Northern realms have a special relationship with the Gnomes that live in the mountains to their North.
The Road Brothers are universally known for employing and protecting magic users and other races, experienced Road Brothers of both of those backgrounds can actually escape the racism depending on how well known their deeds are.
