Lords Of Creation: Fantasy World Races

Fantasy Worlds are where magic, dragons, and all the mythical races exist. The Races a Character can choose from are: Dwarf, Elf, Giant, and Human. The races are explained below.

DWARF

Appearance

The Dwarf race is common throughout all fantasy worlds. They are short human-like creatures that stand about a meter and a half tall (between 3 and 4 ft tall.). Male and female both grow large beards. They live about three times longer than the normal human. They generally weigh about 30 to 40 kg.

Society & Traditions

Dwarven societies are based around a clan system, with a group of Elders ruling groups of clans, and a king ruling over all. They often live in underground caverns or castles.
Dwarves are a very proud, argumentative, and short-tempered race. Dwarven history is full of petty arguments that lead into wars.

Traditionally, Dwarves are highly skilled artisans and sturdy workers. They depend less on magic and more on knowledge and strength, ie…Dwarven Wizards are rare.
Psychologically, Dwarves enter their own form of Battle rage when they are in the presence of any of the Goblin race, Hobgoblins, Trolls, Orcs, or Ogres. Dwarves are usually Neutrally Aligned.

Dwarven Racial Abilities

Battle Rage- Normally {(PER)/3} %, except when around racial enemies (Goblin, Hobgoblin, Orcs, Ogres, etc.), where the percentage is {PERx2}%

Armorer Skill- Dwarves automatically receive the armorer skill at no cost.

Legends, and Heroes

In every fantasy world, there is a legendary underground castle that is a basis for all Dwarven legends. It’s either a creation of a joint effort of the dwarves and another race, like the Giants, or it was built to battle a great foe many years ago before the Great Tragedies. This particular structure is a great work of art, something Dwarves like to bring up when the argument of who is the better race.

Legend says the Dwarves originated from the World of Nidavelir, but no one has ever proven it, no one ever seen this world (except the Lords of Creation)

The Greatest Hero of Dwarvedom, (at least to the Lords knowledge, is an old Dwarven craftsmen, Andarvi who is the head craftsmen to most if not all of the Lords of Creation.

Sea Elves are very secretive, as most Elves are. They don’t welcome curious adventurers in their underwater cities, but they are known to help shipwreck victims, no matter what race. They are always merciful, and understanding to situations as such. They are very friendly to the Sea faring Giants, whom they consider their strongest ally. They also are known to guide lost sailors that have gained their trust, which is very difficult. Trust is a major attribute to them. Break trust with them, and the perpetrator might as well had signed his death warrant.

Giants

Appearance

Giants as their name describes, are large humanoid creatures that stand about 3 to 4.5 meters tall. Giants have little, if any, relation to the Rock Giants, Frost Giants, or Fire Giants. In fact no one knows where the Giants came from.

Traditions and Society

Most Giants are Sea Farers, and own huge sea ships. They hire out to any willing patron to do any type of sea transportation. Giants are known as the Gypsies of the Sea, or the Unhomed, for they do not know where their home world is. They only feel they have not found it. The closest they come is endlessly riding the currents of the many seas of the fantasy worlds.

Traditionally, Giants are friendly to most, especially humans, who they feel the most related to. Dwarves and Giants often work together to create incredible structures of stone. Giantish constructions are known as the strongest in all the fantasy worlds. Giants, being sea men, also build the most durable sailing ships. “To own a Giantish ship is to own a castle. To sell a Giantish ship is to gain a fortune” is a quote from a wise old seaman known to the Lords.

Giantish Racial Abilities

Giantish Strength- All Giants can carry or lift 3 times their base Strength. The Character should make a note of it but should keep the percentage for times to role against it in gaming.

Giantish Stamina- Like Giantish Strength, Giantish Stamina refers to the incredible endurance of the Giants. The Giants can take damage equal to their Base Stamina before they actually start taking physical damage. In other words, in combat situations only, a Giant can take Twice his Stamina in damage.

Heroes & Legends

There are many legends on where the Giants came from, but none more popular than the Legend of Hirithia the Cloudfollower. This legend is only a legend for not even the Lords know the truth (The Lords aren’t as all knowing as they like to think). Hirithia, or Hyritia, or many other various names throughout the fantasy worlds, was a female human who, it is said, made love to a tall human male of godly form, some say the Giantish God Tytranos, the God of Promise. From that was born the first Giantish Kindred. Of course the time of this birth and everything related conflicts from world to world. But throughout the Time Flow and Dimensional Continuum, not a Lord can find substance to prove this allegation.

Lord Saltsoul Waveslicer is a famous Lord of Creation, ruling many Worlds and Dimensions with honor and strength. Few have torn a world from his grip. He is an old veteran of the Time Wars, and has many allies. He tells the lessons learned from the Time Wars, and is one of the founders of the Peace treaty that organized the Laws for the Inside War, the battles fought by the Ranks (what this whole game is based on.)
