"The dominant race on the continent of Qalia, Qaliathari humans enjoy wealth and luxury paralleled by very few other groups on Telon. Though they had to raise themselves up from the harsh sands of the Qarath Desert, they have built many fine monuments to their culture. From the graceful spires of Ahgram to the gargantuan statues that guard the port city of Khal, qaliathari prosperity is easily noted. Their prosperity, unfortunately, has also made them an easy target by a plethora of unsavory groups. Overland trade is being decimated by the Ksaravi Ratmen and the Harami Bandits; many covert groups vie for power in the busy streets of Ahgram; and corruption from within threatens the ranks of city officials. The Qaliathari stand ready to battle these problems, but will they succeed when there are so many troubles threatening the world of Telon? Like most humans, the Qaliathari have a wide array of talents that have lent to their success and widespread population."
"Although not a blood thirsty race like the Orcs or Goblins, Qaliathari are cable combatants. Qaliathari are adept in most forms of combat and are equally masters of steel as they are of natural and arcane magic. Qaliathari have been known to be Warriors, Paladins, Dread Knights, Rangers, Rogues, Monks, Bards, Clerics, Disciples, Blood Mages, Sorcerers, Necromancers, and Psionicists.
The Qaliathari are a playable race in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
