I'm looking at page 8 of...

Battle of Bloodmarch Hill

(PZO9091), the first book of the Giantslayer campaign - namely the town statistics for Trunau.

The population is made of a large number of humans and of several other core races, with the less featured being gnome (10 gnomes in Trunau) and elves (at least one elf, Silvermane, is a long-time resident of Trunau) being grouped in the generic "other" entry.

So, I suppose there might be 25 different races with one exemplar each or, at the other end of the spectrum, at least three races with at most 9 individual inhabitants each (9+9+7 or 9+8+8).

We also know that no full-blooded orcs live in Trunau, only half-orcs, so the main race of the Belkzen region is out.

Are some other races officially represented in Trunau? As in, is there any published material that tells us that some individual of any other race lives there?

If not, is there any hint to what kind of creatures could be the most probable residents of those at least two other races?

The write-up of Belkzen mentions that trade comes in from Lastwall and Nirmathas, which means that Chelaxian tieflings are a possibility, as well as centaurs, gathlains, and ghorans. It doesn't mention Varisia, but with that big of a border, there has to be some overlap, and with that would come stone giants.

Within the Hold of Belkzen itself, there are mongrelmen, taiga giants, freshwater merrow, ogrekin, and various fleshwarped humanoids.

    \$\begingroup\$ I think all sorts of giants are also outside of Trunau's regular population. Gathlains and Ghorans might even live in the nearby forests, following the river downstream. Good idea. \$\endgroup\$
