General

Most humans live in Midgard and the midgardian culture is heavily influenced by early human culture.

Human culture is more practical when compare to Asgard or Utgard, Asgard because they sometimes tend to choose beauty of comfort and Utgard because they don't have the crafting skills or need for comfort. Human culture is driven by efficiency rather than effectiveness and they tend to choose for quantity above quality. Humans are also noted for their desire to understand and influence the world around them, seeking to explain and manipulate natural phenomena through religion, science, philosophy and mythology.

Most human cultures are highly individualistic and free.

Language

Most humans can speak both high? and low? merchant. Low merchant being their primary language.

Art, music and literature:

Art music and literature (fiction) within Human (and mostly Midgardian) culture, highly concentrates on the extent of human nature. With other words, their themes revolve around things that you don't see every day, in fact, most humans never experience the things their exiting books, paintings and lyrics speak about. Therefore they seek it in fiction.

Magic

The human race has a moderate talent for magic, living equally far away from Asgard it's high magical discharge and Utgard it's magical devoid landscape their magical talents have a distinctive randomness to it. About half the human population has the spark needed to become a magic user but only a fraction of that actually pursue and practices this talent enough to do so. Magic in human society is seen as a handy tool that takes so much time to master that one should think hard and long before trying it. Humans do not have the amount of time the fae and elven have to learn this art and it generally takes almost half their lives of study before it becomes useful.

Religion

Humans generally worship Talor as a form of Primary worship?.
