Savage is all that is needed to describe the unmen. Supposedly the twisted remains of eastlanders who got caught in the dark magics of the Aradan War, they are now the widest spread menace to civilization. Raiders, bandits, cannibals, there is no limit to their depravity and madness.

Unmen are the descendants of the people who were twisted and deranged during the 30 year war between Aradan and Pardalor. Many believe they are direct descendants of those who fought for the Warlock King and were used by his necromancers as front line fodder. Whatever the truth, they have been left a twisted, evil, and outcast people.
They hate all other living things as well as a strong dislike between their own tribes. A hunter-gatherer society, they take advantage of any easy prey – from animals to farmers. They are feared raiders in any land they have migrated to. Luckily, due to their chaotic and violent nature, their population has remained sparse in the 700 years since they were first encountered.
Most common in the east, lately some have been seen as far west as Garaden. In recent days, rumors have begun to spread that something or someone has somehow organized them and is using them for some sinister purpose. With strife in the North, many hope that this is just a rumor.
Little else is known of the unmen, as their beliefs, languages, and rituals seem to differ widely among the different tribes. One common trait among them is they seem to revere and honor body scarification and disfigurement. This may be due to their deformities that many suffer from long exposure to the toxins in the eastern plains.
