The Argran are a hardy, mountain-dwelling race of humanoids. They are primarily nomadic, though some live in small settlements and there are a rare few Argran mountain-cities in the world. Tales tell of Argran cloud-cities as well, but these are considered myth by many.
Physically, the Argran are tall with long limbs. They are barrel-chested, due to large lungs adapted to thin mountain air. Their skin tones vary, encompassing colors of both the mountain and the sky. White, grey and blue are all common, brown and green less so and rarely does one see a black Argran. Hair colors are the same and can either contrast with or compliment an individuals skin color. Their eyes are blue, brown or white with grey seen rarely.
Argran culture is very open and egalitarian. The genders are equal, although those Argran who choose family life as their path due tend to fall into “traditional” male/female roles, but neither men nor women are excluded from any area of Argran life. They have relatively little contact with other races, as a whole, but as Argran are strongly given to wanderlust there are individuals found in communities all over the world.
Argran hedge mages tend to be strong, often tapping into the Blue, Green or Red Road without actually seeing or necessarily being aware of it. Mages are relatively common among them. Many walk the Blue Road, often with an emphasis on air, cloud and sky magic, or the Red Road focusing on its aspects of earth and independence. The Green Road is also a freqeuent choice, but as with all races Argran mages may choose—or be chosen by—any of the Nine Roads.
