It has been five hundred years since the dragon wars, those living in Htrea have felt terror and death again: Maverick has arisen.
Using a gemstone the powers of which only he has grasped, Maverick has stolen the minds of those of his own race; the dark elves. Now, with his army made up of almost all the dark elf population, he reaches out from beneath the ground to concur the world above.
Human: Most common race on Htrea next to elves and dragons. They have learned to develop magic that is lesser than an elf's or dragon's but is still powerful enough to make an impact.
Dragon: Most magical of the races, also one of the oldest. Their powers depend on their color. (ex: White is healing and/or wind, Black is shadow, Blue is water...etc.)
Elf: There are three types of elves. Wood elves, Dark elves, and High elves. Elves tend to live with their own kind, though in some small areas they have started to co mingle.
Demon: Third most magical race on Htrea, their powers depends on their 'type'.
Half Dragon: A mix between dragons and other humanoid races. The most common mix is dragon with human or wood elf.
Orc: One of the least common races, their kind were nearly wiped out during the dragon wars. Tend to keep to themselves, or live with Trolls.
Troll: Also one of the least common races, they are the 'vultures' of the land.
Vampire: There are two types of vampires. One type lives off of blood, they normally have red eyes and are weaker when out in daylight they don't need to sleep. The other kind don't need blood to survive, though they still drink it, they normally have blue eyes, and need to sleep.
Neko: A part cat, part human creature. They have recently appeared throughout the land, some believe that they used to be Nymphs.
There is no technology, everyone depends on the land and magic for resources.
Weapons consist of swords, daggers etc. There are no guns.
All people of Htrea pray to what they call the 'dragons of the sky'. They believe that these are what created their world, and what judges them when they die.
NOTE: Instead of heaven or hell, all living things believe that they go to the 'everlasting skies' when they die.
There are a few kingdoms spread out through the land. Here are their locations, and their respective rulers.
Nogard- A dragon/half dragon/Human kingdom near the mountains of shadow. Durg is the king of this land, his symbol is a bright red gem that rests in his crown.
Nad- A elven kingdom in the forest of Nad. Lakar is the king of this land, his symbol is a gold leaf.
Nimad- A Orc/Troll/Demon kingdom near the ocean of Tralet. Aylia is the queen of this land, her symbol is of Tralet, one of the five.
Eqatue- A Vampire/Neko/Human kingdom in the Valley of Arian. Evia is the queen of this land, her symbol is the sun.
Retan- A Human kingdom in the Valley of Retan, near the ocean of Tralet. Araj is the king of this land, his symbol is a horse running in the wind.

There are a few lesser kingdoms, that have no set names or rulers. These are places where all races can live.
People use horses, ferries(small boats or platforms made of wood) and wagons to travel.
This is the story that the elders tell to younger generations:
The great dragons of the sky were once creatures of flesh and blood, as you and I are. They came to this place and found it drik-without life. The five decided to create life for this place they had found. Such was within their power, so they did so.
Hartier-the dragon of earth, stomped upon the soot and rock they found. The shakes he created caused mountains to rise and cracks to appear.
Tralet-the dragon of water, cried upon the cracks her brother had created. Water flowed into these cracks, and nourished the dry land.
Retan-dragon of wind, blew out in a mighty huff at the sight of what had become. Wind blew, sweeping the dust away, and allowing plants to grow.
Ertier-dragon of fire, blew his flames all around. The flames hardened the soil, so that it could not turn to dust again.
Arian-dragon of light, flew into the sky with a mighty roar. Light came to the world, and the five were proud of what they made.
These five dragons roamed this new land, but soon got bored with each other, and started to fight. They argued that there was not enough life on their new home, and whether or not to create fellow creatures to roam the lands with them. Soon they saw reason and combined their powers once again. This time they made the creatures that walk the earth. When they had finished, they were again proud of what they had made. Years passed, and the dragons grew older. They soon agreed that they should return to their home in the sky, and keep a eye on their creations. So the five flew away, and created the everlasting skies; where those creatures they had made could join them when their veras-or life, was over.
Years later, the dragons started a war against those of other races. This is the most famous war in the history of Htrea, for the high number of deaths it caused. The war raged for many years, during which Durg (the king of dragons) watched nonchalantly. Finally, a band of four adventurers—a wood elf, a dragon, a nymph and a demon—set out to make the king of dragons see sense. After reaching the mountain in which Durg lived, they managed to persuade him to call the dragons home, and thus the war ended.

OOC must stay out of IC
No overpowered players, if you are magic based there is a limit to how strong/how much magic you can use
Contact the GM's (AshFisher or parham) if you have any questions or need anything cleared up, or if something needs solving between you and another player
I want to at least see these things in your character profile-

He stopped suddenly. Had he heard something? Staying still as stone, he failed to catch the sound again.
The wind blew again, and with it came the sound he had thought he had heard: the sound of a crowd, perhaps cheering or talking, he didn't know. He turned towards the sound, and just pushed on, hoping against hope that he would end up somewhere amongst the army so many had come to fear.

Anya and Gustav find this out when the dark elves attack Nogard.
Just an idea :)
And somehow I'm still hungry after a massive meal. :/
I'm just chilling out, and listening to music, personally.
