History
The islands of Kuratia are filled with spirits who act as guardians. No one knows how the spirits came to be or why they only exist in the islands. Their effect, however, is still felt to this day as the Spirits still protect much of the flora and fauna.

Although they have always lived closely, sometime in the distant past humans formed much closer bonds with the spirits. It seems that even marriages took place, but that is unheard of today. Collectively, their offspring are known as the Spirit Folk. These half-human, half-spirit folk continue to thrive. Some live in their own villages and some live among the other races. They are all considered equal races in the islands, but are looked upon as strange or even inferior in any other land.

Of the gods
A character who is Spirit Folk is free to worship any of the Caenyr gods. Although each has a heritage in the Spirits, they do not worship them. This is roughly the same for Spirit Folk as it is for a Half Elf or Half Orc.

River Folk
Favored Classes: Druid or Cleric with Water domain
Alignments: Good or Neutral
Skin Color: Sea green to dark blue
Strongest Attributes: Wisdom
The river spirits live close to nature in general and close to running water to be specific. Their wisdom is well known and often sought by those in positions of command. Although they are slow to start or join a conversation, their words are worth listening to.

Bamboo Folk
Favored Classes: Bard
Alignments: Any, usually good
Skin Color: Any shade of green
Strongest Attributes: Charisma

A fun loving creature is the destiny of one who is born to the Bamboo Folk. They make their homes in the bamboo forests found on the islands of Kuratia. They seem to have an unnaturally happy attitude. Many believe the Bamboo Folk are capable of winning over the hearts of even the most vile of people with their singing and dancing.

Shadow Folk
Favored Classes: Rogue or ShadowDancer
Alignments: Evil (sometimes neutral, never good)
Skin Color: Dark black always
Strongest Attributes: Dexterity

Be it in a dark cave or the corner of a forgotten Inn, the Shadow Spirits are found almost anywhere. Shunned by men, the Shadow Folk are much the same. Living Shadows, as they are sometimes called, will live a life alone and will take what they need or want. They hate their existence, but will use it to their advantage. Each of them live as if they are trying to get even with life for what it has done to them.

Mountain Folk
Favored Classes: Fighter
Alignments: Any neutral
Skin Color: Pale white to golden yellow
Strongest Attributes: Strength

Living at the foot of their 'father', their village is located on the South East side of the main island of Kyonobi. They give great reverence to the Mountain Spirit that protects and watches over them. Often, their village is attacked by 'outsiders' (non-spirit folk) who wish to gain control of the Mountain. It is believed that whoever controls the mountain, controls the islands. With the constant attacks, the young ones learn to fight at an early age.
