~~ :: Elves :: ~~



Race Information:


Name: Elves
Cost: Nothing.
Type: Old Race
General Information: Standing at average between 5'4" and 6' and weighing in between 130 and 170 lbs usually, true elves are a naturally slender and athletic race. Elves have a similar range of complexions to humans, with wood elves typically coppery or pale skinned and wild elves having darker pigmentations. Often, elven hair is dark, either brown or black, with copper red or blond hair also found amongst wood elves. Although orange or even green hues are not completely unheard of. Elven eyes are commonly brown, hazel, or an emerald green. Elves, like their cousins the Shadow Elves, are fair and beautiful, handsome, and have pointed ears and no body hair except eyebrows, eyelashes and hair. Elves mature at roughly the same rate as humans, though they are not usually considered past adolescence until they reach 110 years of age. Unlike humans, elves do not age dramatically as their lifespan comes to a close with the most obvious changes being a change in hair color, alternatively graying or darkening. Most elves remain healthy and full of life up until their death, which, if age-related, is usually between two and nine centuries.




Eleven Subraces:


Each sub-race of elves has a different level of power, different unique traits and abilities though all are roughly the same power.
All Elves: The Elven Race holds incredibly high-tuned senses and abilities connected to nature and magic, no matter what type they are.

Half Elves: Born from a Human parent, and a elven parent, the Half-elves are unnaturally graceful and elegant, but hold rougher human features, being connected to magic and their elven blood, but its halved causing their aiblitites to be weaker.

Aquatic Elves or Sea Elves (Alu-Tel'Quessir)
Aquatic elves are also known as sea elves. They live beneath the waves of Shinma and can breathe water as easily as their cousins on land breathe air. They can also breathe air but for a very short period of time. May RP Being able to Breath Underwater.

Shadow Elves
Once known only as dark elves, one of their greatest kingdoms was Illythiir. They were transformed into Shadow elves and sentenced away from their brethren. Of all the elves they are the only ones that are inherently evil and hate their cousins with an undying passion. They are smaller than their cousins, both shorter and thinner. In addition, their skin resembles polished obsidian, and their hair is snow-white or silver. Their eyes are almost inevitably red, gleaming with the hatred for their surface dwelling cousins. May RP Being able to See no matter what time of day or night it is.

Moon Elves or Silver Elves (Teu-Tel'Quessir)
The moon elves are the most common of all the elves in Shinma and are also known as silver elves. They typically have fair skin and hair that runs in hues from silver-white to black or blue. While human style hair colors are rare, eye color can be remarkably similar, with colors ranging from blue to green. The majority of the half-elves in Shinma come from parings between humans and moon elves. May RP having Visions of the Future, Very short and unclear Visions Out of combat, only 5 minutes into the future. With concentration and at the cost of their powers for the rest of the IC day (3 RL hours), they may see one whole IC day in the future. Only "ancient" elder silver elves may see up to centuries into the future, but not to modern times. 200 years, tops.

Wood/Wild Elves, Copper Elves, or Sylvan Elves (Or-Tel'Quessir)
Wood elves are a reclusive subrace, preferring to live in such areas as the High Forest. They place more emphasis on strength than learning. Wood elves are considered by other elven subraces (particularly the austere sun elves) to be boisterous and hedonistic. They have a zest for life and pleasure. They slowly formed for centuries from some of the other elven subraces after the last Crown War. They see their realms as the natural successors to past nations such as Eaerlann and Cormanthyr. [i]May RP being able to Track, and have Survival and Forest Knowledge of advanced levels.


Players can create racial based techs and have a -2 to token cost. These techs can only be taught to others of the same race. If it can be taught to another race it is not racial and will be full price.

~~ :: Gnome :: ~~



Race Information:


Name: Gnomes
Cost: Nothing, just let a DM, Admin, or Co-Admin Know you made One.
Type: Old Race
General Information: Gnomes are very small compared to most other races and, with an average height ranging between 3'4" and 3'8" and a comparable weight range of 50 to 75 lbs gnomes are smaller even than halflings. However, while halflings are commonly said to resemble short humans, though they more resemble dwarves, who they are compared to due to their tendency to grow beards and live underground. Many gnomes have a more feral appearance than either, however, with hair that often sprouts from their heads in odd directions. The skin of gnomes runs in hue from reddish tans to earthy browns or even shades of gray, with exact hue somewhat dependent upon the ethnic origin of a gnome. Similarly, gnomish hair varies wildly in color from blond and brown to more exotic colors like white, orange, or even green. Gnomish eyes are often, particularly in individuals who are native to the Feywild, glittering black or blue although more natural eye colors are also known to the race. Gnomes are very long-lived, which means living over three centuries is not uncommonly rare and five centuries is not unheard of. Generally, gnome are considered to reach maturity at forty years of age. However, unlike elves, gnomes show a greater degree of aging as they grow older and once a gnome has passed his or her first century, their hair begins to gray, if it was not already white, and their skin begins to wrinkle as in humans or dwarves. However, even the oldest gnome retains a vitality that would be extraordinarily unusual amongst many of the younger races.




Gnomes Racial Bonuses:


All Gnomes: All gnomes, though not as strong and endurable as Dwarves, have a a strong Will and fortitude compared to other races, however to replace their lack of brute strength their race has a unnatural affinity with magic, along with their small size, the combination can be quite annoying to many opponents. They may RP Being fairly Durable, and having a deeper wisdom then most, and of course, their short.

Jungle: The Jungle gnomes really are one of a kind in their race, they are masters of survival, and if you want a modern term, they are like pygmy Tarzan. They hate clothing and consider it a weakness to hide behind armor and shields, their weapons are relying on their natural surroundings, occasionally using spears and blowpipes that shoot darts of poison.They May RP Advanced Survival Knowledge, but they Dont Like Cloths that Much.

Borrow: The Borrow Gnomes are mostly the more 'home-loving' of the Gnome race, they prefer not to adventure and stay with their homes and neighbors in their underground cities or villages, harvesting gems and metals, carving and crafting them into unique treasures to be held with pleasure, Because they spend so much time underground, but not so low as the shadow elves and dwarves, their bodies have adjusted, learning to feel the earth, and see in low-light.. They may RP Being able to See in lack of light, but not Utter Darkness, and can sense vibrations through the earth.

Stone: If there is such thing among the humble race, the Stone Gnomes are the 'warriors' or 'adventurers' of the Gnome race. They are built a bit sturdier then their other cousins, and their hide is a bit thicker then others, they use their advanced craftsmen skills and strong arms and chests to the work of blacksmith and stone working, building great fortifications and armories, training themselves with every weapon they ever make, they are strong warriors, despite their small sizes.They may RP a Advanced Military Experience.

Players can create racial based techs and have a -2 to token cost. These techs can only be taught to others of the same race. If it can be taught to another race it is not racial and will be full price.

~~ :: Halfling :: ~~



Race Information:


Name: Halfings
Cost: Nothing, just let a DM, Admin, or Co-Admin Know you made One.
Type: Old Race
General Information: Halflings are small in comparison with the members of most other races, standing between 3'10" and 4'2" tall and weighing on average between 75 and 85 lbs. In many ways, halflings resemble small humans and usually have the same proportions as the typical human adult. Most halflings, regardless of their skin complexion, which has a similar range to humans, although it is commonly ruddy in hue, have dark hair and eyes. Nearly all male halflings are incapable of growing true beards, though many have long sideburns. Halfling hairstyles are often complex, with strands woven together or braided. Although halflings have an affinity for collecting valuables, they do not prefer to wear these on their person, instead preferring more comfortable clothing. Halflings have lifespans comparable with, but slightly longer, than humans. A halfling is typically considered an adult in their early twenties and some live into their 150's.




Halfling Racial Bonuses:


All Halflings: All halflings, are small and slim, not like gnomes who are endurable and well-built despite their slimness, but truly lean and springy in build, causing their main ability to be speed and agility, as well as a keen mind and tricky personalities, this allows them resistance against Mind-affecting spells, as well as enhanced agility and small size for avoiding attacks.. They may RP Being fairly Durable, and having a deeper wisdom then most, and of course, their short.

Earth: Halfligns of Mother Earth, these are masters of stealth and outdoor jobs, they are one with gardening, and tracking through the earth, being able to blend in with it easily no matter where they are if the earth is without grass. They may RP the Ability to Feel Vibrations through the earth.

Hill: The Hill Hin are, in general, rogues, this is a stereotype in some ways, but it doesn't change the fact that they are also great scholar's, they spend much of their lives locked away in their hill-homes, reading and studying their lives away in a search for knowledge, and treasure. Generally they hire others to go and get these treasures however, not truly adventurous themselves.They may RP a Keen knowledge of Lore in the Lands of Shinma.

Dune: The Dune Halflings are generally small bands of the Hin, as the race is called, that travel selling to travelers in caravans, they are masters of Survival, and the desert itself, able to survive for far longer then normal without foods and water, as well as able to eat nearly anything thanks to eating bugs, raw meat, and other unmentionable things to survive in their lives. They may RP a High Knowledge for Survival in the Desert, as well they may RP being able to Eat Nearly Anything Organic.

~~ :: Dwarves :: ~~



Race Information:




Name: Dwarves
Type: Old Race
General Information: Dwarves are a short race, as their name implies, standing between 4'3" and 4'9" on average, with gold dwarves a bit shorter. What Dwarves lack in height they make up for in bulk; they are, on average, about as heavy as humans. A dwarf can weigh anywhere from about 160 to 220 lbs. Dwarven males are a bit taller and heavier than their female counterparts. Like humans dwarves have a wide variety of skin, eye, and hair colors, typically pale among shield dwarves and deeply tanned or brown amongst gold dwarves. Hazel eyes are common throughout the race, with blue eyes more common amongst shield dwarves and brown or green eyes found amongst the gold dwarves. Male dwarves are often bald and grow thick facial hair sometimes used to display social status. It is a common misconception that female dwarves (with the exception of some gold dwarves) also do this, who instead braid their long hair. This hair is often dark in hue, though among shield dwarves blond or red hair is just as common. Gold dwarves take the care of beards to an extreme, carefully oiling and grooming it, and in some cases even gold dwarven females grow beards. Dwarves are a long-lived race, and reach physical maturity somewhat later than humans. A dwarf is traditionally considered an adult once he or she reaches age fifty. Dwarves age much like humans but over a longer period of time, remaining vigorous well past 150 years. Most dwarves live to see their bicentennial and a few live to be over 400.




Dwarves Racial Bonuses:


Mountain Dwarf: The Mountain dwarves are the first of the dwarves, they are the tallest of the dwarves ,though still only around 4'8'' tall, but by dwarf standards that's tall, they are built about twice as thick as the normal dwarf, and generally have tanned skin and brown to black hair,e ye color is nearly anything. They are incredibly strong and endurable, able to shrug off nearly any normal attacks and keep on bulldozing forward in a fight, hitting hard and strong.They may RP that they can shrug of most minor pain and wounds, these Dwarves are also the ones that are famous for their quality in terms of forging and other metalworking.



Tehb Thom Dwarf: These like mountain-dwarves
originate from mountain or rocky-terrain ground, unlike their lighter-skinned
relative these Dwarves originate deeper down inside the mountain, they're general
neighbors of the Shadow-Elves and they range about 4'2''-4'6'' in terms of tallness.. and they are commonly at war with the mountain-dwarves, these dwarves are commonly thanks to their alliance with the Shadow-Elves
called "Dark-Dwarves" or "Tunneler-Dwarf", their skin range in darker shades of normal mountain-dwarf skin-pigment to darker brown, or even black, their eyes are commonly red or yellow and at rare cases green their dark-skin they have developped under millenias living underground as their bodies and minds have adjusted to the dark warm-enviroment that is the lower-dephs of the mountain, these kind of dwarves are slightly sensitive to sunlight and can see in the dark as if it was the brightest day, their hatred for
their non-fellow Tehb Thom-Dwarves is great and has been built up over several millenia of terratorial clan-wars between the mountain-dwarves and the Tehb Thom, the Anatomy of the Tehb-Thom are also somewhat different
from the other dwarves... they have an advanced stomatch-digestion system... acidic saliva and jaws that are
unhookable made for the sole purpose of digging... their Gaps are Massive when their jaws are unhooked, and
to dig the dwarf litteraly eats dirt, rock and the likes to shovel themselves through the ground. They may RP Perfect Darkvision

Note: The 'RP information' part of each description is meant as a guideline. You are in no way obliged to follow it to the letter, though moving to far away from it (by creating an Ondode that would want to turn everyone to the 'light', for example) is discouraged and heavy disruption of the roleplay of the race will result in actions being undertaken. If you want to specifically create a 'comic-relief' character, a character meant only to lighten up people's day, please contact a DM before doing so.

De Ondode
'De ondode', or undead in the common tongue, is a mixed race of all kinds of abominations. Some resemble humans, while others are nothing more then walking masses of bones. They are generally shunned by all of society and when they're not they are being abused by evil ones for their own purpose. De ondode have their own city, hidden somewhere below the earth, and their society is not one for the faint of heart, purely based on having power and eradicating those that oppose you and manipulating those weaker then you. As an ondode, you start at a cemetery in [insert major city] and start your journey there.

Mindere (Level 1 - 5)
Spoiler:
 

Verzamelde (Level 5-10)
Spoiler:
 

Collectief (Level 10)
Spoiler:
 

Grafeter (Level 10-25)
Spoiler:
 

Grafheer/Grafdame (Level 25-35)
Spoiler:
 

Grafvader/Grafmoeder (Level 35+)
Spoiler:
 

Forbidden powers: (Level 40, high roleplay requirement)
Spoiler:
