    The Undead Armies stirred while the nations of Sarok fought each other. As armies fell in battle, they added their bodies and souls to the ranks of the undead, the soldiers rising to fight again.
    Smaller, weaker nations fell to the first wave of zombies and skeletons. Stronger, more organized countries held them at bay, their fortresses being able to hold off the scourges.
    The second wave came in force. The mythical creatures of the land were not spared from the undead, and they too turned to the ranks of the dead. Skeletal dragons and zombified Gryphons flew over the walls of fortresses, the dragons plaguing the town with its necrotic breath.
    Empires were the last to fall, to the third wave of Undead. Liches and wraiths introduced a new threat, using black magic against the strongest of the nations. Not even the strongest Dwarven mountain fortresses were able to stand against the might of the Zombie Ogres. The very mountain crushing the city underneath.


    The major cities are gone, and the majority of villages and towns were as well. Those that survived now find themselves hiding in the wilds. Many decided to become Bandits, hunting other survivors for their food and gear to survive better against the Undead. As the days go by, the Undead only grow stronger. How will you survive?

    Dangers

    The Undead
    [​IMG]
    The most common of the undead, Zombies take upon what they looked like before death. Unable to use weaponry, doors, or anything else, they stumble around unless a powerful Black Magic user controls them.
    [​IMG]
    Skeletons are another common occurrence. They use the weaponry and armor they did when they died, but cannot, or will not, use new armor or weapons. Elven skeletons differ from humans due to their leaner bones. Orcs have bulkier bones, and a distinct fanged jaw. Dwarves are obvious.
    [​IMG]
    Although they are extremly rare, Infected Mythical monsters roam the lands hunting for survivors. Those that don't, are locked up by powerful Liches and Banshees. You are must more likely to be attacked by a normal monster than an undead one.


    Other Dangers
    [​IMG]
    Bandits may be more dangerous than the undead. The creatures of darkness took out the weak people, now some of the strong survivors band together to steal, kill, and otherwise overpower other survivors.
    [​IMG]
    Weather is another major factor in survival. Far too many die due to the cold of blizzards, or flooding rivers. It also help keeps the undead population down however.
    [​IMG]
    Mythical Monsters are perhaps the most dangerous thing a survivor can encounter. They retain their own minds, unlike their fallen brethren, most who roam the dead lands under the orders of a lich or banshee.

    Lore

    [​IMG]
    The Lands of Tridawn were once filled with farmers, fishers, horse breeders, and a superb Calvary army. Led by Kind Derdeki, he had alliances with the Dwarf Clans of the Iron Cliffs Mountains, although he was in a sort of cold war with the Elves of Elineshire. He was at constant war with the Orc tribes of the Howling Plains.
    Tridawns landscape held many flat plains perfect for calvary combat, hills, rivers, and a few good size forest.


    [​IMG]
    The wooded nation of Elineshire was pact with Elves and an abundance of animals. The forest emitted magic, mostly due to the druids that enchanted the trees with various spells. Ran by four groups of Elven families that made up a council, the Elves built their buildings inside large trees in the Iron Root Forest, nicknamed due to the extremely strong wood of the trees. The Elven buildings were built from the roots, all the way up to the canopies of the trees. This nation kept to itself most of the time, though did trade with the Dwarves on occasion.
    [​IMG]
    The Broken Cliff Mountain Range is home to a various assortment of Dwarven clans, most of which work together in large mountain-wide cities. Mines liter the cliffs, and deep within the mountains interior, abandon, dead cities from old Skaven settlements. Rather cold when traveling above ground, and rather hot below ground.

    [​IMG]While technology in the lands didn't progress too much, the Humans and Dwarves too an interest to it. Making strange gadgets and gizmos to make up for the lack of magic that many didn't possess. From spears that fire outward and drawn back in with a chain, to special crossbow bolts that use elemental properties, and even simple oil lit lamps where recently introduced a few years before the undead came. Meanwhile, Elves and the settelers of the Howling Plains rejected technology, and focused more on magic. It was nothing but a diplomatic disagreement between the Elves and Humans, but to the Nomadic tribes, it was an outrage, and technology sparked more than one battle between Tridawn and the Howling Plains tribes. [​IMG] Dwarves were the founders of Earth Magic, using rocks, metals, and other stuff in the ground. They are more atoned for it, and is more common in their culture. Elves founded Nature Magic.Nature magic dealt more with healing, plants, and poisons. They are more atoned for it, and is more common in their culture. Orcs founded Wild Magic, which deals with animals and shapeshifting. They are more atoned for it, and is more common in their culture. Humans founded Elemental magic, dealing with the four major elements. They are more atoned for it, and is more common in their culture.

    Major Races
    Spoiler

    [​IMG]
    The human race is abundant, diverse, and free for the majority. Able to take up a career for themselves if they dont mind the risk of it. Most dwell along side Halflings in Tridawn, but some might reside in the mountains, learning smithy skills from Dwarves, or perhaps learning herbalism from an elf in Elineshire. Many look up to the various Noble families that fight for Kingship each time the opening arises.

    • Can grow any where from 5'0 to 6'5
    • Skin color varies from white, to tan, to black
    • Very versatile race, that cover the continent
    • Much more technology base race

    [​IMG]
    The sly and , and though they are as abundant as humans, they live a much more strict life style, and tend to stay in larger groups, making their cities fewer, but much larger. Most stay at the social class they are born in. They live along side the plants, animals, and Gnomes of the forest, living and learning how to survive in a vast forest. Sort of a magical race in nature, most Elves tend to learn a spell or two in life. They are ran by a council of Elven Councilmen, who are elected by the Druids of the forest.
    • Average Life span is 250.
      1-40 Baby/Toddler

      Sun Elves, are tan and tend to be shorter than High Elves, which are taller but lighter skinned.
    • Magical in nature, and most tend to reject strange technology

    [​IMG]
    The proud and hearty Dwarves of the Broken Cliff Mountain Range hold close to their tradition. Their numbers are many, and though they are able to branch out into anything they want too, most don't. Keeping ties to families and clans, the Dwarves have a rivalry with the Skaven, and with the help of Humans and Elves, hunted most of their race down, nearly exterminating them.
    Though once the Humans and Elves learned they were infact an intelligent race, and not monsters, they quickly shunned the Dwarfs responsible. Most Dwarves still are racist towards Skaven, more so than the other races.
    Most of the Clans work together to form a sort of council system.
    • Average life span is 100. Live longer than humans, but age the same
    • Grow as tall as 4'5 to 5'0
    • Skin colors vary as much as humans
    • Very proud and traditional race.
    • A magical race too, but tend to also accept technology

    [​IMG]
    Their numbers tend to be behind the other races, mostly due to many dying in battle. Most orcs are seen as barbarians and savages, and they live in nomadic tribes up in the Howling Winds. The tribes are at constant war, and most Orcs are raised to go to battle. Those that aren't raised for battle, are raised for Shaman ship, where they take part in helping run tribes. They tend to keep Goblins, and they see each other as cousins of sorts. They tend to speak their mind like Dwarves, be more aggressive than humans, and have for a respect for nature like Elves.
    • Same life span as humans, but most don't tend to reach that age
    • Can grow to be anywhere from 5'5 to 7'1
    • Skin colors tend to be either a shade of green, brown, and vary rarely grey
    • Very respectful towards warriors, though they tend to look down on any other kind of person.
    • Not much of a magical race, nor that of technology


    Minor Races
    Spoiler

    [​IMG]
    Skaven, a nearly dead race. Most tend to be either extremely rude and straight forward, or the opposite; shy and timid. Ages before the Undead came to life, they were hunted down by the other major races for being mistaken for monsters. Once a treaty was made, the Skaven held a grudge, and most didn't return to the cities they were slaughtered in. Most Skaven take jobs as mercenary companies, assassins, or thieves. The most organized and largest Skaven group is "The Black Paw".
    A mercenary group of sorts, they work somewhere in the mountains, and could be hired to hunt someone down, for protection, or to steal something.

    • Fur color varies from brown, white, grey, black, and rarely a mixture of several colors
    • Most tend to be rather tall at 5'5 to 6'8, but due to having a naturally forward shoulders look about 5'3 to 6'0
    • Have naturally sharp claws, which many use as weapons.
    • (Only two allowed)
    [​IMG]

    • Can grow to be 3'0 to 4'0 foot
    • Same skin color as humans

    • Same life span as Elves
    • Can grow to be 3'0 to 4'0 foot
    • Same skin color as Elves
    • Naturally weaker

    • Height identical to Gnomes and Halflings
    • Skin similar to Orcs
    • Age similar to Dwarves
    • Not magical, nor technological
