Playable Race: Spartes
The first spartes were not born of mortal woman — their fathers were teeth torn from a dragon’s skull, and their mother was a plowed field. Legend holds that a hero slew a draconic servant of Paleos as part of a great quest to either raise an army or found a city, and the gods guided him to remove the dragon’s teeth and sow them in a field like grain. Wherever the teeth fell, armed and armored men and women sprang forth. These first warriors who arose from the dragon’s teeth were powerful but belligerent, and all too quickly fell to fighting amongst themselves. But those who survived proved to be loyal to a fault, and served the hero who sowed them well. They were called the spartes, or the “sown men.”
The descendants of the original dragon’s tooth warriors mingle with the other races to this day. They retain a portion of the brash, warlike nature of the dragon who “sired” them, but have adapted well to civilized life. They are among the finest warriors in the world, and although a spartes regiment can be a disruptive presence, most commanders would rather have the earthborn on their side than face them in battle.
