Numenéra: Gift of the Calimshan
Ah! Humans. It is known that Humans once ruled the world, several times. It is also known that sometimes, others, possibly the visitants, or other races, aliens, or demons once ruled in their stead. Whatever the case, whoever the last rulers of the world were then, now, in the Ninth World, Humans are dominant again, although it can hardly be said that we rule the world.
Certainly in the Steadfast, Humans or Near-Humans make up the majority. Humans that remarkably like we’d recognize today, which is a little odd, considering that the 21st century is closer to the Dinosaurs than to the Ninth World (by a factor of 2!!), and yet there it is. We were gone for a time, and now we’re back, although Humans today can sometimes bend light, gravity, fire, ice, and do other strange things. We’ve evidently been to the stars and back, reshaped the entire Earth, and possibly the entire Solar System.
But we’re still humans. We still love, fear, hope, and fight.
