We have a brand new custom species and a couple of reduxes for you all this month! Please welcome the se'athkyn
, our newest addition to the playable races! The se'athkyn are a native people to Xaeri, and are divided into five distinct tribes that follow a hunter-gatherer way of life. Each tribe has a totem animal, and not only have distinct ways of life, but appearances as well! The most unique thing about the se'athkyn, however, is that they have the ability to manipulate their own bones at will. They can make anything from protruding spike-weapons from an arm, plated boots, shields, trinkets and more - though the process can be quite painful!
Alongside the se'athkyn come a subspecies called the myskari; these warrior women branched off from the main tribes centuries ago, and have founded a unique way of life. Their tribe is a matriarchal society that often mixes metal with bonecrafting to create stronger than usual weapons and armor. Don't mess with these ladies!
To go along with the release of the se'athkyn, our xeriin
species has been updated! We have fleshed out and refined the Kin types: each Kin's appearance details, their culture, and their abilities have all been heavily fleshed out and polished.
Last but not least, our elementals
have had a complete overhaul! Now, each type is fleshed out in full, and the differences between the variants' various communities is described in detail.
Orochi has begun moving once again - his snakekind and mortrae'vinn - children gifted with chaotic power and sent as weapons to fight - have been seen attacking far and wide. As the Faction draws back to its base-world, the snakekind have grown bold, and have begun to attack without warning places that they previously avoided. Several mortrae'vinn have been seen abroad, and more are attacking both those on the road and those protected by city walls. Nowhere seems safe!
