Gangsters and Goblins
The “Outsider” Races, also referred to as the Non-Native Humanoid Races, are: Deva, Eladrin, Genasi, Githyanki, Githzerai, Gnome, Kalashtar, Shadar-Kai, and few other races. These races make up the second smallest set of races in the world. All of these races are not originally native to this plane and have all immigrated to this world at some time in the past for various reasons. The vast majority of these immigrants live in South Cathagus and have made several small isolated nations in this region.
Some of these races immigrated to this plane a few centuries ago and established their own lands and nations that can sometimes be as old as some native nations. So the term “Outsider” is kind of a misnomer because the vast majority of these people living today were born in this plane and so were their parents and sometimes their grandparents and great grandparents. However this term still persists due to strong regulations on inter-planar interaction and concerns over invasion that has happened a few times in the past.
Both the “Civilized” and “Savage” races general view them with mistrust, yet never really do anything overtly hostile against them unwarranted. Politically their is always a concern that to much dealings with these races might trigger a multidimensional incident, so the rest of the world tries to stay out of the business of the Outsider Races. However, the South Carthagus Cartel, that is exclusively made up of Non-Native Humanoids, is the exception to this view. Most governments oppose this group and their Glittergold market.
