As one of the most widespread and diverse species in the entire world Humanity has a number of ways of communicating and speaking with one another.
The primary language that most humans speak is what is referred to as Trade or Common tongue. No one is really sure where this language came from or who originally came up with it, but by and large it is the most common language spoken among humanity. The convenience of its understanding as well as the fact that it's easy to learn means that many humans learn to speak it shortly into their childhood.
Of course for the exact same reason it is also true that not all humans speak this language. There are dozens of individual tribes, cultures, and races of Humanity that have their own unique dialects. Some of these cultures never even come in contact with Trade tongue.
Language among Humanity is as diverse as the species itself.
Speaking in general terms, Humans are bipedal beings standing upright with two arms of varying height and size.
Though other species are diverse in their own appearance, Humans quite often take the cake when it comes to this particular fact. Some have red hair, some blonde, some black. Some have skin as pale as snow, others as dark as night; some are even blue. There are dozens upon dozens of different kinds of humans that are found all over the world.
Many Human cultures tend to hold themselves to different standards as their people develop and grow. Articles of clothing, tattoos, hairstyles, and other smaller factors help Humans in setting themselves apart from their close cousins or kin.
It is not uncommon to see one Human dressed completely different than others, standing so far apart that they are very nearly unrecognizable. Their appearance is as varying as their language, and is entirely shaped by their region, culture, and many other factors.
Humans are a hearty people, capable of surviving and even thriving in many environments that other species struggle with.
This quality of adaptation seems to be something almost unique to Humans, and more than any other species they can be found in a great many different kind of environments. Whether it's the driest deserts, the highest mountains, or the coldest tundras humans have a way of finding their place wherever they choose.
Different races and cultures of Humanity have adapted themselves to different environments, and often these people suffer when they meet their opposite. For instance, a culture that has spent the last few centuries within the great deserts would not fare well in the tundras.
Overall however, Humans as a whole seem remarkably capable of adapting to their surroundings.
More often than not Humans are seen by many other species as an 'average'. They are not all great and strong like Trolls, they are not natural craftsmen like Dwarves
; instead Humanity seems to be almost a baseline that other species measure themselves by.
This is not to say that some Humans do not contain greatness – in fact many would argue just the opposite – but it is easy to say that Humans are in many ways the middle ground between other species.
Their greatest quality is likely the species' talent for adaptation. Their courage and ability to fit themselves into any environment is something greatly admired. The fact that in a world of ancient Elves
and powerful Orcs
Humans have survived for so long is in and of itself miraculous. Humanity has a way of overcoming challenges and rising up to meet whatever is in the way.
For many other species, however, Humans also boast a certain hubris. The simple fact of their numbers and their presence all over the world means that Humans have made many enemies over the years, fighting in wars and battles that are still held against them to this day.
Besides this it is important to remember that Humans are relatively frail beings. They are among the shortest-lived species, their bones are softer than those of the Orcs and in general they are less sturdy than the Dwarves or even Elves.
