Moonhunter suggested I bring this over here, since I never turn down help I can use here I am.
I thought I would do some mindless ramblings since I am struggling wih a concept I have in my head.
Race X is caste dominated race that has a mystical bond to exotic creatures and plants, and a viloent conflict with non-magical creatures. To this end Race X have become the great merchent-traders, Garmers, Herders, Hunters and Fishermen of The Last Dominion. Race X lives tend to be wild and exotic. They have a deep mistrust/hatred of anthing not touched by magic, they are perhaps the most dangeours when they use their mystical bond to convince thier beasts to go to war they are a dangerous and deadly foe.
Personality: Pride (these people care little for true honor as they are only intersted in saving "face") Spicifically in which caste they belong too even slaves take pride in their caste seeing it as the most numerous and the most powerful, Greed (race x hoards wealth and magic in the same fashion that a dragon does, it is the prestige of holding what is valuable that matters, they are not misers) though perhaps hedonistic is a better word than greed, lustful might be the best word to discribe them but more for the experinces of life than for sex. Innovative: Race X is always looking for something new to do, something they have not experianced before. some never use the same spell twice, some are always looking to improve what they do well, but Race X is never satisfied because there is always room for improvement.
not a clue as of yet.
Relations: Hate humans and natural animals (though dire animals and dinosaurs are well loved.) They have gone to war with the human nations many times over small and pety disagreements. all most every other race is well tolerated. They have a deepest respect and love of the Taurians, they tolerate but are antisocital to the black trolls, and are often subsurvient to the Hags.
Race X Lands: The have built a large compound a massive sprawl completely unlike a city it has a deep subterrean stronhold hidden a mile beneth the earth called Adamantdeep. To the the north part of the vast urban expanse is the Kold sea on the edge of a massive freshwater bay to the south lies a vast plain whre Race X grazes their herds. It is said they hold the Horn of Plenty in the Fallen Kingdom, so rich are their food resources , The work here is year round for the Boundcaste (slaves), stoping only 13 times a year for religious holidays, when the winter season comes, many farmers become fSerpenters (fantasy version whalers that hunt sea serpents) upon the high seas this expance is constally patroled by members of the Warcaste (military adventuring companies, organized in a manner similar to the samauri but not limited to swords), The Country is ruled by an ologarchy lead by the Foremost, and the Chosen Conclave who are comprized of the leaders of the 6 castes
Tractcaste privilaged to own land
Warcaste: privilaged to beari arms and spells of war
Rootcaste: privilaged to own an idea.
Vicarcaste: privilaged to speak for the advesary an the worldsmith
Bancaste: forbidden an privligies, have become money lenders an traders.
Brutecaste: privilage to own herds of magical beasts
Boundcaste: compelled to serve (slaves)
One can only leave ones caste by being adopted into another caste, being exiled (bancaste)by the conclave or being chosen to serve by your own caste, were by you become boundcaster. Even outsiders can join the caste system and become an excepted member ot the culture and each of the caste holds favored members, human can only be adopted by the bancaster and boundcastes.
Religion: Race X worships a change religion that teaches a cycle of serving the universe as the worldsmith intended it to be they believe that the worldsmith and the advesary move in concert. In the same way they believe that the ennwrathi and mortals must move in concert. Race X believes it is in the Cycle of The Last Dominion and the when this cycle ends either the world will enter the Immortal Cycle or the Ennwrathii Cycle. The Vicarcaste is deeply favoring the thousand year Ennwrathi cycle as they have obsurved the signs and portents. Race X will fallow the Advesary so as to survive the coming storm. This is not a matter of good vs. evil this is a matter of survial. If an entire people die what good are your principles. Omens do not lie they say.
Names I will be using a number of names from my new language
Avton, Brenncis, Cozimir, Duson, Evalin Gavril Idania Jonco Kisha, Lenka, Marijke, Nijole, Oksana, Pavel, Rumer, Stesha, Tana, Vrad, and Zvorina
Family names exist with castes but your caste name serves as your surname with you family name serving as your middle name. You can serve two families within a caste (there by having two middle names) but not two castes.
Each having a type of work they do within the caste. Adoption is more common than you belonging to your birth parents in this society your proffesion is your family.
Example Gavril is a member of the Warcaste, he was taken in by a famil;y of assassians, in the fallen tongue ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œubikaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬?
So the characters name is ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œGavril Ubika WarcasteÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬?
If he later joined the family of spies he would be known as
Gavril Ubika Kriv Warcaste
Most Race X demand that their full and proper t
The character name section is going to be something a bit longer than most.
Adventures the Warcaste are the most likely.
Some mindless thoughts about Traits and other mindless thoughts.
We know that this race is going to be decended from Echedna "mother of all mosnters",
We do not want to do Stat modifers.
