The Dragon Cursed, or as they prefer to be called, the Half-Dragons. They were warriors brave and glorious, or so the tales portay. They eventually hunted the dragons of our world to near extinction, and as punishment, Feyrus, protector of the dragons, placed a curse upon them. They fused with those they had slain, become a new breed of humanoids.
Elves.... We all know who they are... what they are.... But when you strip it all down, they are just a glorified race of humans. After all, it's only their connection with the gods and elder spirits that grants them their otherworldly abilities.
Humans.... They have less potency to magic, but just the same can be born with the gift.
The dwarven race were first discovered within the depths of the earth, in crevices they themselves had created. If you ask them, they will proclaim that the gods of old forged them in the blistering heat found only in the molten depths of a place known as Fornax, a place with so much pressure only the hardiest could be made.
Orcs... They are the ugliest creatures you could find. But they weren't always as such. Long ago they were the most beautiful of all the land. Anyone and everyone would fall for them at just a glance. It was due to this that Sindra, a goddess of the elven people known for her own beauty, became jealous. How could a race hold such godly beauty when they themselves were mere mortals?
Sindra in a fit of pettiness bestowed a curse upon the orcish people, turning them into the hideous monstrosity we know today. Unable to reverse the effects, and the refusal of Sindra's cooperation, Malik, protector god of orcish kind, bestowed a gift to them at a grave cost. They became more resilient, and stronger, at the cost of their vitality.
Aquafin are the people of the waters. They are not one race, but many that never truly found their way back to land after the great flood that overtook the lands long ago.
They include the elves of the sea, the merfolk who resemble humans with gills and fins, and other waterbased humanoids.
The Aquafin have many a tribe within the oceanic depths, and we've only recently have began encountering them. We are keeping a close study on them and further research into their expanded history is to come.
So I've been asked about doing something on the different kinds of Elves, so for now I will put down info about two of them.
High Elves: These elves are notable for their more royal appearance and their extreme affinity to anything and everything magic. This could be due to their constant studying and improvements within the arcane realm, and there is much to be explored in their lore and culture.
Wood Elves: These elves are more attuned to nature and beasts. They venture within wooded lands, hence their name. I probably will throw the info on them to another for elaboration, as I myself haven't much in resources for studying them. Plus, I hate going outside.....
Despite the general consensus, NO, vampires cannot turn you into a vampire. Please stop telling me this. They are another cursed race that are this way due to an ancient sword given to their king. In order to survive they must have blood shed, literal blood shed. They cannot consume anything other than blood otherwise they regurgitate it all.
No one knows the Howler's original name, or why he turned himself into the Howler. All we know is that he is a werewolf not of natural origins, as he goes into a frenzy when he turns into the beast. Theories dictate he might have been a scholar much like myself, and his experiments led him to become this... Howler. He has the name, for he howls not just at transformation like most werewolves, but when he spots his prey and goes in for the kill.
