The Fallen Lands: The Ruins of Numinis
Shifters are usually found in small, nomadic packs that live in the wilderness. The shifters feel connected to the lands and feel that the wild is their home. Though they often come into settlements for trade and company, there are very few that choose to stay among the trappings of a settlement. Shifters are frequently a first line of defense for settlements against the monster races. Shifters will warn nearby settlements of monster activity and sometimes engage the enemy so that the settlements can raise their defenses. Shifters are mysterious and strange, but welcome in most settlements.
