Like most other worlds, the world of Trin has many nations. There are honourable, steady dwarves; mysterious, intelligent elves; and hard-working, law-bound humans. Many nations have fallen and risen, and perhaps many more will follow. As far as the three races are concerned, they are the largest nations on Trin.
