Considered Witchcraft, mostly unknown to commoners
The Kingdom of Ilianora, governed by the twelve noble houses have been in uproar over whom should lead and take over it's nation and the surrounding land, as the northern armies of Koush slowly breaks it's way into it's barricades and militia. Lead by a peerless warlord, promising to leave nothing of Ilianora standing. The houses are still incapable of organizing a defense amongst each other.
Whilst unbeknownst to most Humans, the rise of monstrous creatures have grown rapidly deep in the forest and caves. Something unnatural has been happening in these lands. Severed from most communication with all other races, the beastmen have been fighting and withdrawing from this strange happenstance. Mostly, not caring about the implications of what this omen might mean.
This game is freeform, in that there is an open world with many different plots to choose and approach.
There is no obligatory direction to move toward. Whether the character decides to fight for good or evil, greed or selfishness is entirely up to you.

Humans are an adaptive race. They are the most ambitious, adventurous and direct of any of the races. In addition these traits, they are also the most able to manipulate supernatural circumstances, however rare that is. Humans may seem all alike but are really separated into three types.
The youth is most in tune with the imagination as possible, and they may see things that others cannot see. Humans, that are also "youth" types are typically children, but there is no age constraint for being like a child.
The Champions of Humans, are primarily the type of Humans that make changes in the world. They are a testament to the great willpower of humans, and their ability to adapt and persist.
Elders are the slowest of humans, and are representative of steadfast mentality that is able to overcome all obstacles with the smallest of changes. Humans that are also "elders" are typically seniors, but there is no age constraint for being old.
Beasts are an ancient race, older than any of the races. Legend has it that they were the first lives to walk upon the world. The most powerful of beasts seem human to the eyes of Elders and Champions. However, ultimately they are not bipedal creatures. Whilst they may seem human and even interact with them, they are still creatures of nature.
Female Only. The Lapine are incredibly fast. They also have the ability to communicate danger to each other through vibrations. Being a Lapine means to always be aware of when danger is nearby.
Male Only. The cranes are creatures of circumstance that are very gentle at peace, but can be deadly when provoked. Oscine are the only race that can fly.
Male Only. The Lupine are pack hunters and very rarely find themselves being the prey of anyone. Highly capable in teams, their sense of smell is unparalleled and they have incredibly sharp teeth.
Female Only. Felines often find themselves in Human communities. Although they can adapt to the wilderness as well, it is very easy for them to put humans or animals underneath their dominance. Felines manipulate the supernatural in their own way.
Female Only. The Cervine are mute to Humans, and are unable to speak even though they can project the illusion of being human. They're capable of bounding in and out of the spirit world at will.
Androids have been around for what seems to be as long as Beasts. Their creators seem entirely unknown. They primarily operate out of "Manufacturing 01", a mountain rich in materials where they give birth to new Androids. Androids mostly take on the appearance of humans, but their eyes reflect a console/terminal that can be read by human programmers. Their eyes also glow. Although Androids ARE emotional creatures, they're unfailingly logical. It is difficult for them to seem emotional when they can easily come to conclusions that most races have trouble reaching. The most predominant emotion in Androids are "gratefulness". There are two types of Androids
Ancients all belong to a technology well before the recording of human history. They are nearly indestructible in these sense that their manifestations are based on touchable light. Ancients carry their physical servers with them, and then remotely control a body of pure energy within their server's range. An ancient can be destroyed if their server is destroyed, but this is difficult because their manifestation grows stronger the closer they are to their physical server. A manifestation that is destroyed, takes half an hour to ten minutes to be rebuilt from the physical server based on I/O
Golems are complete physical beings that have no networking functions apart from directly connecting. They are often much stronger than Ancients and seem to relate to humans far easier. Golems have their own type of immortality, by being able to back themselves up to a database. However, because each Golem's AI is so vast there simply isn't enough room to fit complete copies. Only the privileged seem to be able to have full backups of themselves.
Elves are an Immortal race that often follow deeply into politics. They live in a world of Fae parallel but far beyond the belief of most Humans. It is rare for Elves and Humans to interact with each other at all. Because of the type of human that they are, champions and elders are unable to interact with Elves. Beasts and Elves relate to each other very well. The Androids only know of the existence of elves as factual, yet Androids are incapable of seeing Elves, however they can effect elves. Elves on the other hand are capable of seeing androids, but are not capable of effecting them. Elves are creatures born of imagination, but are most at the mercy to the supernatural. Most humans are considered insane for believing in Elves
The Fae court comes from order and justice. They are often found seeking favor from nobles, and thinking up acts of mischief. The Fae are creatures of story, and can manipulate reality as if one had to accept the reality of a children's story book. Yet they are also confined to restrictions of writing as well. The fae change the world in their own quiet way.
Dark elves come from the mishap of a Fae elf that lives within the heart of a human "youth". If that youth suffers a traumatic experience, and the Fae is unable to bring the youth out of that trauma, the fae becomes a dark elf. A dark elf, has the same restrictions of living the reality of a children's story book except that they play the villains. And also suffer the same strengths and benefits as a villain would.
