(c) 1989-2001 by Brian and Jim Henry
(This document dates in its overall form from about 1995. Brian wrote the introduction about that year with an audience of role-players in mind. Some of the material, especially for the Toaliralolo, Yith, and Jhray, is from as late as 1998-2001. HTMLized mid-1999.)
There are 16 sentient races, all available for the PC's to play (depending on the setting).
Some of the languages I've designed in some depth, others are as yet scanty collections of root words for naming purposes, others are only vaguely and impressionistically described. Take them as you find them.
As you'll see looking over the different races' myths, not all of these can be true at the same time. However, the same is true when comparing Terran mythology, so get off our backs!
Game-masters may wish to take one of them as true in each campaign, especially if all the player characters are of the same race. On the other hand, you may not.
This main Caligo2 document describes the old, orthodox religion of each race, common to every Caligo. In the local Caligo documents, other religions, which have emerged since the Sundering, are described, e.g., Vistralism in Torodoth, Mebliond in Triyk, etc.

key to "Where the races are found"
x - Full, known, sentient presence.
_ - Imperfect presence of some sort:
The Yith and Jhray are cursed to nonsentience in Rectek.
The Wexivanov have lost their physical bodies, and borrow
those of other races, in Rectek and Kreis.
The Pliv in Triyk, and the TTambroc in Mar, remain only as
unusually persistent ghosts.
The Blirthibo in Kreis escaped a plague by transforming
themselves into members of various land-dwelling races.
A few of their descendants (mainly Toaliralolo and Yith)
retain their religious traditions, and even fewer have
weakened forms of the old Blirthibo humours.
