Four Paths To Choose From

Each race has a rich background lore, and each come with one unique skill, one unique ability and each a different base resistance. – All races can wear all armor types, wield all weapons and master all skills (except the below listed racial skills)

Humans

The elves have the strongest bond to nature of any race in the realm and they posses long forgotten magic which roamed the realm aeons ago.

Soulless

“Not dead, not alive. Not evil nor good. The Soulless wander the realm forsaken and forgotten, not welcome in hell and not welcome in heaven. Some choose to go in solitude and vanish in the vastness of the realm spending eternity alone, other seek redemption for their sins in life and spend their afterlife quite active and engaged in the community. A soulless is eternal unless killed, yet they have a special bond with the netherworld, able to summon aid and even resurrect themselves.”
