Shadowmancers of Blackmantle  are secretive masters of darkness and shadow, dwelling underground in volcanic cities and monasteries. Not much is known about them, other than they are the one clan who still has reservations of teaching the ways of the Magi to ‘outsiders’. Still, they grudgingly support the Great Compromise and honor their sacred vow to the other four clans, by deed if not by word. 

Truth Seekers of Thunder Keep live along the shorelines of great islands and archipelagos where storms are common. They are enchanted by thunder, lightning, hurricanes and waterspouts. One island has been dedicated as an ever expanding repository of their knowledge; a fabled library known as Thunder Keep. They are dedicated to learning the truth of magic, science, nature, which in turn is recorded for future generations.

World Singers of Cloudcrest offer friendship to all around them. Living near rainforests, they prefer lush overgrown cliffs and rolling green hills to build their homes and farms and live near windmills and watermills, using the powers of nature to sustain themselves. They live peacefully with all kinds of animals, including normally dangerous predators of all types.

King Breakers of Ironhold are boisterous and daring, living each day as if it’s their last. They strongly believe in community and will never allow an individual to rise in power at the expense of others. They can seem rude or obnoxious, but they mean no disrespect or harm to those who don’t understand their ways. They live in large fortresses and have designed specialized skiffs that sail across the desert sands as ships do over water.

Portal Nomads of Breakhame travel throughout the realms seeking new places and those who may be in need of the devices and magical machines they’ve invented. Thankful for the little things, they’re cheerful and considerate, for they have experienced great loss due to mistakes. They carry their belongings and tools with them, as they never know what new realm they may encounter. They use large, floating zeppelins as their homes and workshops.
