Found throughout the most densely populated parts of the world, kingmaker humans consider themselves to be the most civilized of the peoples of the world. They typically owe allegiance to one kingdom, although those in various traveling trades (merchants, mercenaries, etc.) may not. While kingmakers have a disproportionate number of well-off and middle class representatives, there are certainly many who skulk about in the alleys, or are simply down on their luck. Kingmakers value ceremony and tradition, and are patrons of the arts; they are also typically expansionistic, and most recently have become interested in progress and the "next best thing".
