Humans

Humans make up the majority of Stardew Valley's population. Most humans live normal lives, however Wizards and Witches still exist and study ancient arcane energies. both

Dwarves

Dwarves call themselves 'Smoluanu', or 'Sky People'. They are known for living underground and once having advanced technology in ancient times. Archaeologist M. Jasper believes they are an alien race. One dwarf can be found living in the The Mines.

Shadow People

Shadow people are beings that cannot stand the light. They fought in the Elemental Wars when the Dwarves invaded their ancestral home deep underground. Krobus is a shadow person who can be found living in The Sewers. Most of the shadow people encountered in the game are monsters found in The Mines, known as Shadow Brutes and Shadow Shamans. Humans also call them Void Spirits.

Junimos

Keepers of the forest. They are spirits which live with the trees. Most of the Junimos can be found living in the Community Center. They have inspired the Junimo Kart video game.

Fairies

Not much is known about them, but they occasionally appear to bless your crops.

Elves

Nimble and skilled craftsmen. Apparently extinct as no one has ever found their bones. Not much is known about them.

Goblins

Not much is known about this race other from the Lost Book written by M. Jasper. A goblin (the Henchman) can be encountered guarding the Witch's Hut, who will only move after being given Void Mayonnaise, which is considered a delicacy by the Goblin race.

Merpeople

The Wizard makes a reference to their existence during the Dance of the Moonlight Jellies, but nothing else is known about them. Very rarely, a merperson might appear under the left-most pier at The Beach, and then swim south. They are purely cosmetic and cannot be caught by fishing.

History

Timeline

The Elemental Wars

An event referenced by the Wizard. It was the war between the Dwarves and Shadow People. The Dwarves, having driven the Shadow People from their ancestral home, forced the Shadow People to resort to violence. The Elemental Wars have long been finished, and the Dwarves and Shadow People must now live in peace for the sake of the humans living around them.

Now

After triggering the event telling about Community Center or talking to Morris you will have an important choice to do. "Now" is just a short period of time between "Past" and "Future", what means that this choice can change the future.
