This RP takes place in a land called Layin. Technology here is close to non-existent, similar to that of medieval times. There are different Tribes scattered about the lands; some settled, some nomadic.
Selkies; a strange nomadic race these rugged individualists clothe themselves in fur decorated with stolen goods. Unlike other tribes, they believe in putting themselves first. Many Selkies are agile and athletic, traits they put to good use as thieves. They are skilled archers and are most at home around large bodies of water, claiming a title of best swimmers of the tribes. A strange trait of the Selkie is that though they usually travel in small groups or pairs, one a year they gather together in one location for mostly unknown reasons to those outside their tribe.
Yukes are a mysterious tribe of great lore and wisdom. Many of these sages live quietly in Shella. Some say that Yukes assumed their current form to augment their magical talents. Yukes are tall, slender creatures with vast amounts of knowledge who wear suits of armour that conceal their faces. It is theorized that in reality the armour serves as "bodies" and the Yukes are only souls that use a physical form to augment their magical abilities. It is theorised that removing a Yuke's mask and/or armour is considered a severe punishment if the Yuke does not have a strong relationship with the person removing the armour. However to those close to the Yukes it is revealed that it does not matter if the armour of a Yuke is disassembled - as long as it is not damaged, the Yuke can reattach itself. Also, if the armour is too damaged to sustain the Yuke, it may transfer itself to another armour. Yukes have a long lifespan, and it can sometimes be difficult to determine the gender of a Yuke.
Lilties; these little warriors have lived all over the world since ancient times. Long ago, they ruled the world, and many still believe themselves to be superior to others. Though they can be hot headed, they are also confident and down-to-earth. Liltian merchants are some of the best around. The Lilties are usually short and appear childlike even as they grow older, wearing heavy armor gear. Despite their diminutive size, the Lilty are the strongest of the four tribes, using spears of their weapons of choice.
A Clavat is described as being one of a tribe of unity and friendship. They are gentle by nature and dislike conflict. When disputes arise, they do whatever they can to resolve them. It is said that an air of tranquillity follows them wherever they go. They are generally farmers or ranchers, and very peaceful generally though due to the necessity of crystal caravans, there are several who do fight. In battle, Clavats use a sword and shield, often using slash based movements as a result of, or possibly resulting in, an inclination towards single edged blades similar to scimitars.
Our story will start during the time of the year when the Selkies, the most nomadic of the tribes, gather in large numbers; on the eve of the summer Equinox. However, after an attack on his tribe by the Lilties, Dax is separated from his long time traveling companion and sets out on a quest to find her.
What I'm planning is that, along the way he'll run into a member of another tribe (your character so your choice). She offers to lead him to where his friend is likely being held. Though Selkies are renowned for being unwilling to accept help from those outside their tribe, she persists, even to the point of following him despite his protests.
