Drisque Out of Character
So, I hope I'm doing this right. Ask loads of questions - I'm not good at organizing loads of ideas.
The races: Naiads of the Savraen Moor (their name for themselves is Delemnaya - People of the Rivers). Frog folk of Kalendi ar-Drossa, called the Kgelthri (people of the mud). Mushroom people of the Mirrowmarsh, called the Ahrelthri (that's a Kgelthri word, their language is not oral so they have no name for themselves that we can pronounce). Humans of the Bog of Giranden. And finally, one other race, indigenous to the Stormwood south of Kalendi, who are currently a secret. And no, not elves, I told you I was repurposing the Stormwood right? So no one can play as them yet. We'll have to wait for them to be "discovered." I'm thinking of an indigenous race along the Shores of Bolrin (that's the Kgelthri word for "thinking"), but I'm not sure yet.
The locations I'll explain in a later post, cultures and religions in later posts too. The general story is a bunch of strangers meet up and become friends, in Falandrena, the capital of Savrae, which has portals to all the other major cities. They really hit it off, and they all separately wanted to explore the world, so they team up. At first, it's just exploration. Over time, it evolves into a quest to find out what's going on at the Chasm of Cairenn, where horrific creatures like something out of Lovecraft are pouring out of the earth... more than that, you'll have to play and find out.
