Murloc Race

Murlocs are a mostly Aquatic race that dwells in all oceans of the world. They used to be at worse a nusance to coastal villages, as their constant infighting between the small tribes kept them from ever growing to a significant threat. However, a band of heroes freed the murloc king from the slave lord Krasur, which lead to the unification of the murloc race. Now the murloc species as a whole worships Awilix and Suku, who are referred to as The Green Lady, and The Tracker respectively. Due to support from Awilix, the population has grown and advanced, bringing murlocs to a much higher standing than the aquatic savages they once were.

Having had a massive population that boomed after the start of the Resurgence, murlocs are the fastest growing civilization in the world. Having many small cities, including a capital city known as Gegthok, located in the warm seas south of the main continent.

Most murlocs are not seen as allies by most other of the humanoid races and factions, due to the large and quickly growing population, that many see at a threat. However some murlocs have started to integrate with other societies.
