Gangsters and Goblins
The “Savage” races, also referred to as the Monstrous Humanoid Races, are (along with several other small races): Kobold, Lizardfolk, Gnoll, Goblin, Minotaur, Orc, Sahuagin, and Yuan-Ti races. These races are the second largest group of races in the world. Currently, in South Cathagus, and most of the third-world countries they make up around 70% of the population. Over half a millennium ago these races were generally the scourge of the Civilized Races and had a much larger percentage of the world’s population. However, over a serious of long crusades, the Civilized Races banded together and almost wiped these races out entirely. Those that survived were taken either as slaves by the Civilized Races, or fled to South Cathagus and other more wild continents in the world.
Overtime these races rebuilt their civilizations in the third world or integrated into the populations of the civilized world after slavery was abolished. Some of these races remain wild but others, notably Kobolds, Lizardfolk, Gnolls, Goblins, and Orcs, have mostly overcome their wild antagonistic cultural heritage and built up societies that are more akin to the “Civilized” Races.
However, despite their more congenial nature now, most of the “Civilized” Races of the world still see them as savage and their is a general prejudice against them. Worldwide these races have the lowest civil rights and occupy mostly the lowest levels of society.
