The Melarni is a human race, very closely related to the people of
ZombieCity. They live mostly on the southwestern part of the continent
of Mellarnia. Parted by a great ocean from the rest of civilized
humanity, they do not share all the customs and teachings of other
human settlements. Continuous raids by the trolls and goblins roaming
the lands of Mellarnia has made it hard for them to build up any larger
settlements. So the Melarni mostly live in small remote villages in
locations that are not easily reached by the raiding parties. Much
effort has also had to go into the development of tactics and methods
for warfare instead of the trading and manufacturing of goods performed
by many of their brethren on Despair. As a result of this their leaders
reside in forts rather than castles.

When it comes to appearance they have some general characteristics
which make them differ from the humans of the center of Despair. Most
notable is that they tend to be smaller in size, and that they have
very straight, dark hair. Their eyes are, with very rare exceptions,
a dark brown in colour, and are commonly somewhat slanted.
Depending on what part of the Melarni lands they come from their skin
tone tends to vary from a pale white in those that live in the northern
parts, to a dark tan in those that inhabit the southern coastline.
