The Varanjar are a race of barbarians living in the mountainous regions of Thestra. They live a simple, yet rewarding, life.
The Varanjar, or barbarians as they are called by many, are closely related to the humans of Thestra. While larger and stronger than most humans, their features remain similar. It is often said that hundreds of years ago the Varanjar were themselves humans who left their brethren for a more simple life in the mountains of the eastern Thestra.
The validity of that claim has yet to be established and while physically, they may most closely resemble the humans it is the Lesser Giants, with whom they share a home in the mountain village of Halgarad, that they have found a common interest.
They are hard working, sturdy and brave. They live their lives close to the land and live in a predominantly tribal society. The Varanjar have been known to be Warriors, Rogues, Rangers, Shamans and Druids.
The vigor and power of the Varanjar people is unmatched. When the battle looks like it might be over for a Varanjar, they surge with a seemingly endless strength, redoubling their attack and driving back foes in a barbaric fervor.
The Varanjar are a playable race in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
