Starvenia is the name of the game world. Starvenia is a floating world with many different floors is protected by a boss monster.
The world is made up of 4 main species/races:
Elves - the best magic users around.
Dragons - love gold and treasure. They can either look human or as a giant dragon. Great hunters
Humans - weak magic but are a better swordsman than the other species
Demi-humans (half-human / half-animal spirit) - disregarded by the others seen as weaker and not given many lawful jobs. They are often left to become criminals or crafters like blacksmiths or tailors ( make the clothes)
There are some hybrids too. Though they are rare and hated worse than Demi-humans. (message me before making one)
The long-lived elves are children of nature. Thought to of been the first creatures of Starvenia. Elves value their privacy and traditions, and while they are often slow to make friends, at both the personal and national levels, once an outsider is accepted as a comrade, such alliances last for generations. elves that spend their lives among the short-lived races, on the other hand, often develop a skewed perception of mortality, the result of watching wave after wave of companions age and die before their eyes. they have very strong magic powers. Unable to control or create fire with magic. They can’t create any of the 4 base elements they can only control what is around. Each elf has a different level of skill when it comes to controlling the of 3 elements. (assigned randomly by the creator of the RP) The elves have a strong belief that all life is sacred. They care about all life even their enemies or animals they hunt. Elves can’t stand Dragons as they don’t care about preserving the balance of nature.
Dragons are generally like to live in large family groups with women at the top of the clans, as there are so few women dragons. (5 men 1 woman). Some dragons prefer to be loners and live surrounded by their treasure horde. Dragons are very aggressive. They don’t care about life. They can breathe fire and will kill anything they feel has crossed them.
Demi-humans have a mysterious beginning. They suddenly appeared on a day out of nowhere. half-human and half-animal spirit. They came in all different forms. Bird demi-humans are rare. demi-humans tend to stay away from the big settlements.
Humans are the weakest out of the 4 species. They make up for what they lack in their determination and ability to adapt to their surroundings fast then the others. They are also the best sword fighters. They tend to live in large towns filled with mainly humans. They are very welcoming of different lifestyles. They don’t remember why they hate demi-humans so much. They have the shortest life span in this world so for them the start of the hate has been lost to he history books.
Developers (message me - they are important to the plot)
AI (artificial intelligence)
Races are a signed randomly.
Character limit 2 characters of the same race and none of the nemesis race.
*Elves hate dragons *
Dragons hate elves
*Demi-humans are neutral as they are treated badly by the other species. Though humans treat them the worse. *

If you have an elf no dragon characters
If you have a dragon on elves
If you have a human no demi-human characters.
**Hybrids don’t count to the limit. Any combination of species is allowed **
Blacksmith/ tailor (Craftsman)
Hunters- best at long-range fighting. They are typically are weaker at fighting at close range. Weapons commonly used are bows, crossbow, spears, tridents
Thief - quick and agile. Sneaky. Good at deception. Tend to mainly use knives and Daggers
Mage - people able to use the natural magic in the air around them. Elves have a better capacity to control the magic. Followed by dragons, the demi-humans and in the last place is humans. Elven mages tend to stick with the base elements of magic. Dragons tend to stick with fire magic. With what humans and demi-humans lack in control of magic they make up for it with there adaptability with controlling the more obscure magic elements. ( light, shadows, animal, spirit) ( base element is randomly picked by the creator for each mage. If you have a specific plan for your character let me know in a PM)
Swordsman- good at close range combat. Their styles of fighting vary from person to person. Elven swordsmen tend to be more reserved and will study opponents before going in for the killing blow.
Craftsman- strong. Well built.Very creative. They will often try to overpower their opponents with their strength. Very flexible both physically and mentally.
battles - how they work in this rp
The monster will appear and you will be give 3 options on what your first move is.
You right a post about your choice and what you do from there.
If in a group each person will be given an option for what to do. The attack order will be picked at random.
At least to replies before the monster dies. For each monster attack you will be given move ideas. It’s up to you after the first attack if you go with them.
One you have done your move the monster will go. Make sure to post within 24 hours (3 days real time) of the encounter or you die.
Player vs player
You decide who attacks first. You write the first move then the other person writes their own move. Reply with 24 hours or the player dies. It’s up to you if it’s a deathmatch or training.
If you want me to decide who wins that’s fine too.
Fire tornado- a spell that all non-Elven mages know how to do as a first spell. It conjures a tornado of fire.(fire mages starting spell/ Dragon can use in their Dragon form)
grass net - basic spell of Elven mages. It creates a net mage out of grass on a target.(Earth Elf mage staring spell)
Whirlwind- a spell for elves in general, creates a whirlwind that can move, however takes a lot of effort. It can pick things up or slow a falling person down, but not stop the descent? An advanced spell. With practice of magic control this spell is able to be used by elves as they are less likely to be drained completely by its use. (takes time get the spell. to get it faster with 3 + monster encounters)
Nova healing - a light magic basic spell that heals all simple wounds (light mages only staring spell)
Shadow net - a dark magic basic spell. Like Grass net but uses a person’s shadow trap them. (dark mage starting spell)
