Notable Intelligent Races
- Humans, with a culture similar to ancient Chinese and Japanese.
- Gnomes, both the rock and forest sub-races. They generally keep to themselves, but some interaction with humans does happen from time to time.
- Lizardfolk, a race commonly being mistakenly related to Dragons, when they are actually just a cousin of fire breathing lizards, many of their small villages dot the eastern parts of Dune, since Lizardfolk are highly adapted to living in arid climates. They are always prone, as they cannot stand upright.
- Thri-Kreen, a large 5 to 7 foot tall insectoid race who live underground and often are found living in harmony with Lizardfolk, while normally hating all humans of Ise Nation for their religious zeal.
- Groua, a race 8 foot tall Ape-Like Humanoids who walk upright.
