Dawn of the Ancients
Minotaurs are mountain folk from the far north in the Northern Regions. They traditionally live sandwiched between two extremes; with the Eternal Sands to the north, and the mountains to the south. They are a hardy race, and thrive well in this harsh area. Their hoofed feet allow them to walk across both the sharp rocks and the burning sands with ease. While they may look like wild beasts to a few who wander into their cities, they are far from either of those classifications. Minotaurs are naturally gifted in magic and even small children know at least a couple basic spells.
