These three races below [Elf, Faerie, Nymph] can cast Ranged spells.
There are several appearances of elves that range from looking nigh bird like, which feathery wild hair and sharp silted eyes, to being more human in appearance with a smooth angular features. Their ears, while triangular, are normally short and mobile, used as a tool of expression as well as catching distant sounds. Elves form highly social communities, naturally learning their language, Common, and normally one other; Orkin, Volt [Volgia], or Illarii [Nymph]. While males and females work together, seemingly without preconceived gender roles, they still hold ranks tighter then dwarves do to reduce cross-status breeding to a minimum. Among other races, there have been rumors that the abundance of female elves are being used as 'bargaining chips' for land. Historic artifacts and traditions are held in high regard, displayed for all their kind to see and even use if one has permission from the keeper.
News: Currently, Elven clans have a treaty with the often 'barbaric' Orcs, but recent claims to Dradowen has caused some civil unrest about boarders and territories given the Illiara Forrest extends into eastern parts Silona.

In the past they were mysterious and callous, until the faerie race was dwindling, but there was no one of any race that will sympathize with them. For all their magic and beautiful, their deceit and mischievous, often chaotic, pranks have taken many lives, hearts, and even managed to hurt people whom were only curious. Faeries use to be wild, but they know several languages including their own almost bell-like language. They were more often to boldly feint innocence and smile behind your back in the old days. While still holding these devious promises of whimsy, they're failing breed has come to understand the importance of trusting other races and attempt to restore their culture. Their bonds with humans seemed to have improved, while other races are still a little wary. Fae commonly take the form of a lovely being with long sweeping hair and ghostly wings of various types that can be summoned and cloaked at will. They're never stealthy on their feet, even with their light weight, they seem to get a giggle at how feet sound when they slap along the ground. These are creatures built to be nimble and agile when they wish, but they always seem to be having a wonderful time until something jolts them out of their fancy.

Leimoniads (Earth and Flora), Hamadryads (trees), Hydriads (Water) are beings from a pure and old blood line of which all nymphs derive from. They're made from the elements, they are known to be the chameleons of Nymphs, their earthy unique forms makes them hard to spot in their natural environment and when fleeing or in fear, they are able to shape change into their primal state of a small flora overgrowth, Small Trees, or puddle of water. Nymphs are a bit edgy around other races since the growth and expansion of tribes or villages had almost snuffed out the Napaea, the nymphs of the valley.

As a medium, they have been exposed to all sorts of magic. Choose, if your Hume or a Bastard was born with Technique or True Magic.
A durable and adaptive, but compared to other races, they are shortly lived, primitive race of childish creatures with the potential for greatest yet will rarely realize it. It was long ago, stories told that humans ruled the world with a wasteful hand and a hole in their heart that nothing in this world could ever fill. Across the lands, there are traces of greatness, faded from glory and aged to forget. The discovery of them by other races has lead to the current age of industrial technology made possible today. The ruin of humans was the flourish of the Ancients that birthed the races and now humans live in strife as the living remnants of an old empire. While they should be hated by all other races, the human spirit for survival and ability to adapt over time, as if evolving in their short life, are admired and their mortal rarity in these lands have earned unlikely allies among the Dwarves and Elven... And surprisingly, Korgoth's Orc-kin, whom work along side most human settlements and progressed them to live within the continent of Tulk. This alliance has sparked a human village to be the middle man or central hub for trades and travelers.

The follow 3 races [Dwarf, Orc, Voliga] use physical buffs and touch magic that can only affect themselves and others.
One of the Ancient races, they know of many secrets of the land and it’s inhabitants, but not as well as they know their own world of Under Stone. Dwarves are hardy built, wide barrel chested frames with firm, thick limbs, wide feet, and often wide palms with thick long fingers. They're not as stout as many thought they would be, only seen during the last war, they were the ones whom claimed the Head of Orgos and erect a large statue in the hall of heroes with a preservation ward surrounding the large head. All Dwarves have been raised on a diet of stories about Paragons, the old days, and training from the moment they could wield a small axe and shield. Dwarves don’t have magic, they have their techniques with their ancestors' blessing. It's what they belief their physical magic comes from. It's only in those with great promise, as the legends foretell. Most rune crafters and warriors are blessed and they never identify with Magi or Sorcerers.
Current News: The House of Tethras has fallen into exile, leaving open the throne under Blackstone Mountain, It brought the attention of Magima Belnor, whom wishes to place only those of proven worth to beset the throne, and Trilore Kingstone, whom only wishes for royal bloodline of the Paragon to guide the people to prosperity. Clashes between the nobles of Blackstone and theses ambassadors seemed to be upon the brink of a political civil war.

They range from natural colors of Green, black, brown, and rarely lives one whom is beige or white. They still have a stereotype of being brutes and savages, but it seems they're easily accepted by humans whom worked beside Korgoth when he was piecing his chiefdom back together from nearly nothing. Males outsource females by almost a twelve to one ratio, it's inspired them to find brides of other races indiscriminately. Within the last ten years, the Tribe of Korgoth have been accepted into the Academy in attempt to keep and inspire harmony. It brought respect from the Orcs and old wounds are starting to heal. This particular tribe has become earthy and cool tempered with finding new acceptance, a place to call home, yet they still hold old rites despite new honors they uphold. While they no longer pillage and plunder and took up mantle in aiding farms, mining, and lumber, they can't seem to help quarreling with Elves and Dwarves. Now a days, they're not as simple minded and are able to articulate their hate for being enslaved and thrown away to rot.
History: Often seen as the brutes, their origins a mystery and their purpose seems like nothing more then to survival and conquer. It's only been half a century since the slaying of Orgos in the Battle for Costina, brought on after he nearly wiped out the Faeries and slayed thousands of Nymphs, causing them to flee Sequade. The moment he was killed in the battle, Vorgrim, the young son, took adavantage of the chaos of war in an attempt to kill his older brother, Korgoth, to claim his rite of rule. Korgoth took out Vorgrims eye, but refused to kill his cowardly brother. Kin fought kin, even the elven and Dwarven army was able to cut down the numbers of the hoarde before retreating with many of their wounded and dead, letting the brutes to fight amoung themselves. Korgoth is still the ruling hand over Te'lon, but his captive bride, Uldra of Ullya, rules the Arling in his stead.

12 Bastard Bloodlines of Tulk
Beastfolk are beings of living legend, they're rumored to be the origin for all other races and that has become a widely-cultural perception. Everyone knows a story of Voliga, they are hearth tales and some Voliga have been accepted as part of another race for their contributions that started the transition of change. From birth, Voliga are kept with their mothers until the age of two and by three they are allowed to play with other pups. This reason steams that children are born without names until they are eight years old, it teaches children to recognize their elders and character, to curb their attention to recognizing someone from scent, observation, and sound. 'A name which binds spirit' is a grand rite of passage, occasionally referred to as 'Taken Rite'
Their community works where women are often the hunters and gatherers while the males till soil, seeding, sowing, guarding children and homes, they are the monks that guide and teach, they rule the council, but their females vote as to whom is worthy. It is not uncommon for at least one or two men to follow a group of females to help carry the load back, it is often at the hunter groups choice. While they are all one race, they do not look to be the same breed, but you could, if looking at land-bound animals, identify them as various Felines, Ursines, Lupins, Mice, Lapine, Bovines, Hedgehog, Crocodile, and Snake. Although, these comparisons should never be pointed out.
Height: min. 4'5- 9'2" max Flesh: often wide varieties of natural colors, patterns, fur, scale, and rarely flesh.
Hair: Green, Red, white, black, brown, blonde, silver

They tend to be less broad with elongated torsos and limbs rather then the Dwarven stout or stubby structure, the Dwell possess more flexibility and greater balance, but loose their ability to stand firm due to their narrow feet and do not soak damage as their skin is less dense. It seems the Elven blood runs strong in the Dwell! They excel in being rangers, rogues, and mobile merchants. Able to get into places better, still maintaining a good amount of stamina, they often eat more then normal to keep up their metabolism and are often a bit more active in running, climbing, jumping, and swimming with a zeal to explore to go with it. They can never, however, wear or wield heavy armor and weapons, though they don't seem to mind, often favoring piercing weapons and flattering leather armors.
With the strain on boarders, this is a rather controversial hybrid that even Voliga wouldn't make the mistake of causing due to their deep appreciation for family. Drow are rare and marked as being a shameful creature by Elves and Orcs alike, even some races feel pity or make jokes of the Drow being a burden. Drows are dark in appearance that most people try not to look at them long enough to see their pleasant, often Elvan-ish features. Their skin is often Grey-blue, dark grey, or Grey Purple from the unnatural chemical mixture of melanin, that controls skin pigmentation. This breed is broad shouldered with strong angular jaws and cheek bones and slanted eyes with elongated, beast-like pupils that are often dark colors. They take after the orcs in being more battle resistant and also happen to draw on the ability to resist magic. Drows tend to have strong fangs and thick nails that act as a natural weapon, something that can only be inherited by the more primal races. They have a legend of Grutella Lillith, the first drowess whom holds favor with the spiders of Lo.
Often called a ‘Star Child’, the mixture of solemn beauty and rich mystical heritage. They glow a soft light, looking much like a prismatic wraith under the light of the moon. They are cursed to be nocturnal, never venturing past the waking hours of dawn for they would make all whom set eye upon them go blind from the magnitude of refracting light. Light, however doesn’t harm the Nyadus, but the coming heat of day will make these nearly amphibious beings retreat to the cooling touch of water. They can breath on land and stay submerged under water for a day before needing to surface. They tend to pray to the moon as the Goddess, Lalalue. The moon being her one perfect eye, her inky black skin like satin is covered with beautiful freckles of soft, jewel like light. It is said that Lalalue is the guide to dreaming slumber, clear spring waters, adventure, and mystery. She does not preside over beauty for she already is in her own way. Those whom pray to her often carry pearls, opals, or lilies. Nyadus are normally sterile and often have an athletic, effeminate build.
They tend to be willowy then normal humans and their ears are arched slightly, eyes tend to be slanted with a more colorful iris and enlarged pupil. They are socially acceptable by humans and some Northern Elven tribes, it is still looked upon as being taboo when compared to the longevity of Elves, yet as of late, Humans have earned their trust enough to be tolerated. They normally fall to be hunters and exceptional in one-handed weapons or bows in human villages and are thought of to be a valuable aid in the welfare of their hometowns. Charismatic and talkative, they seem to be born to chase the winds of adventure with a high amount of curiosity. Still, some tend to be a little clumsy, they have slightly elongated limbs, waists, and shins, giving them an almost lithe and springy appearance.
Lovely. Females are often petite next to their male counterparts, their hair is often darker versions of the Fae and have a lustrous quality to them whether the hair is curly, straight, wavy, or unruly, one can never find softer hair then that of the Faefolk. Half-Fae often have heterochromatic eyes composing a natural and unnatural color of sharp contrast, as if they truly are the windows of the soul to warn others about their potential for darkness. They have a potential for magic and do not often have wings, but those whom do are able to hover as long as there is ground beneath them. Wings allow to also fall distances without taking serious injuries like broken bones, but Fa'larii are too dense in their structure to fly, thanks to their human side
The blood in these ones mix oddly, children of this union are as unpredictable as their tempers. Some of the children come out more beastly, powerful versions of the Voliga with some anomalies like horns, humanoid faces or thick, long manes. Their talons or hooves are sharp and thick, they're very dense skin, and despite being a frightful visage they tend to be earthy, stoic, and sometimes coy. They are prime candidates to become berserkers if they have nothing to focus and discipline them. Other times, what comes to pass is a troll-like humanoid beast that takes more after the Orc father; slight tusks, unnatural skin color of various blues, lavender or teal, and really long, wild, thick, often black or white, hair on their head, chest and, some have rat tails with tuffs of hair at the end like a kangaroo rat.
The orc lineage may show in different ways on each individual in cosmetic ways like eye color, elongated fangs, thick nails upon hands and feet, and sometimes even the minor sprouting of bone horns that get no bigger then two inches. Most prominent in physical traits, is their enhanced strength and toughness in their physic, as well as those semi-bestial features. Their height varies, from some slightly shorter than humans to truly towering ones. They inherited the broad shoulders and narrow triangular hips that renders difficulty in conceiving and most pregnancies are life-threatening without being administered by Magistrate-quality medicines. Unlike other bastard lines, most Orans express a fierce sense of individuality and independence from the race they were born from despite acceptance, often making them seem aloof or uncaring when they truly wish to prove themselves - to themselves.
All Voliga kits are adorable; big eyes, large paw-like hands, plump feet paws, they tend to start crawling at least two weeks after birth and are highly energetic during childhood. The vlamb are no different! The Vlamb Females are renown for being one of the cutest creatures in the world with their sweet looking faces. They have various body types pending on the size of the mother and height of the father; they can be curvaceous, lithe, willowy, slender, athletic, or stout. Their male counterparts tend to be a little more primal looking with thick hair and mutton chops that can bristle out, dust or tan skin with most males having tattoo-like birthmarks on their biceps, thighs, or along the spine. Females tend to have birthmarks in the form of a single intricate spot on their forehead, neck, upper or lower back, and lower abdominal. All Voliga look like a hybrid of human and animal, their ears normally looking like that of a Voliga, sometimes a slight muzzle forms, animal tail, thick claws, hard teeth, maybe gait foot paws on rare occasion, but it is apparent that the human gene dominates the Voliga phenotype
These are rarely born given the Nymphs lie mostly in the north where it is tropical and cool while the Voliga thrive in the warmer southern regions of open valleys. The child of Nymphs and Voliga often have the gift of animal empathy and are able to stoke up a kinship with all matters of beasts or other races. They tend to appear between nature and beasts themselves, often giving them an unnatural coloration or abnormal elemental features, some of the most common are wooden thorn-spikes or stone speckled skin. They are as priests or priestess upon their own community and are raised with the respect to find their own name. While they favor harmony and prosperity, they are also very driven in their personal goals and often seem arrogant, if not unruly in their ways. They are raised to be leaders and aspire to it. Some even pressured into being something great, no matter what and often creates a demeanor different from their actual nature that they feel they need to hide.
The Dwarfson normally take their height from the dwarf, but have a human's structure that leaves them with a moderately symmetrical build and rather darling features. They're suave, having a way with words, but also sometimes tend to pilfer shiny things, normally as long as there's no owner that claims it. They are known to dwell in the side of grassy knolls, while they are usually 'home-bodied' individuals, they are avid hard workers, have an appreciation for farmers, gardens, songs, and often are rather mischievous, if not a tad clumsy when distracted. Their magic tends to develop in the most unusual way when they come of age, it can either be Technique or True depending on the first spell they train to cast. There isn't much difference between males and females aside noticeable gender, they look sweet or charming, a face that wouldn't lie to you, if maybe a bit rogue-like, but seem quiet mindful of their manners with gusto.
A rare occurrence, they're something of a odd-looking creature. Darges are normally born male and all children inherits the Voliga's height, patterns type, and color, but the Dwarf's dense skin They're eye color is just as practical as their appearance, normally with a dark sclera and light colored iris with a oval pupil. They do not grow hair on their bodies, instead they have fur on their facial and intimate areas. They also have thicker flat teeth with slight canines and a thicker tongue that makes some languages difficult to learn. Their tones always seem to be accented, maybe even rough when speaking common. The males normally get thick velvet patch of chest fur and females normally get a stripe or spots of fur down their back, but all of them tend to have noticeable points on their ears, some with fur tuffs. They also inherit that Dwarf's wide feet and hands tipped with slightly thicker yet naturally tapering nails. The Darge tend to be more experienced with survival, often living in Kriss' tropics or Sequade's swamp lands; hardy and durable, secretly the best of both races. Only, the Darge tend to have a mating cycle close to the Voliga, and tend to be more sexually open in choosing their mate, normally choosing through scent instead of appearance.
Tend to be naturally inclined to tracking and sense of direction, there is never a time when one can confuse a Cybil of their senses, but normally it's toward a certain element, like water, ore, flora, and dirt that grows specifically from where they live, creating an internal compass. Unlike the Nymph, a Cybil tends to favor Technique, as they are prone to learn faster through touching and listening then reading and writing. Further more, they tend to be noticeably pallid or perfectly tanned, they often have human colored hair with unnatural colored streaks, tips, or roots. Cybils, like nymphs, do not have an entity they pray to, but they do have personal rites they perform and tend to be druid in their views of the world. Nothing to waste, nothing to die without reason.
