The Orc greatest strength is their lack of a soul due to a curse by the Erema though an Orc is born with a soul and the soul is removed in the womb the Orc`s magical journey is not over they soulless nature renders them immune to magic so they must be fought will bow or blade to be slain neither of which is safe.

Their magical skill is a true marvel though due to their pride and actions against the elven races the Malinmar were cursed by the Erema who turned many Mailnmar to Orc though some managed to escape to Kalzaria and colonize only to return many year later to offer salvation to their Orc Brethren in hopes to restore them to their once proud state.

Magic
------------------------------
The use of Magic is directly connected to the users soul. upon conception a soul is given to a body and as it grows the soul becomes unmovable in the body. Upon Birth ones magical aptitude is determined by the strength of the soul which they were birthed. Using magic requires the use of ones soul force to power the spells which they are casting. When ones soul force runs out they must replenish it. This occurs thanks to Multiple objects in the realm that provide a source of magical energy for the mage to draw upon. These places are the Moons, the sun (also the portal between realms of Erema (The "Gods") and the realm of mortals (Quarin), or if close enough to the Arcane tower a mage may use the Eye of Sorcery which sits upon the top of the tower to regain soul force. In the case where a soul is absent which might occur in two incidents the person will be immune to magic. The absence of a soul occurs only when a person or group more commonly is cursed by a powerful magic user and altering their very being or in the womb when more than a single child is being boring the unborn might Give or take soul force defying the usual maximum soul force of 5 a child that is born to this process might have as high as 18.

The Soulforge
-----------------------------
A Soulforge is a physical forge that sits in the center of every realm beneath the surface. A Soulforge is essential for a realm to escape the fate of the Abyss. A soulforge is what gives the races of the realm the ability to have children supplying them with souls that allow life to be created. The power of a soulforge varies though a soulforge can be made stronger or weak through the process of removing a soulforge`s essence from one realm and causing it to be reduced to a dark void known as the Abyss. A soulforge is the most powerful item in a realm and cannot create an item that is more than a tenth of it`s power though through the process of strengthening a soulforge one might create a stronger item. The effects of a soulforge on a person are devastating, If a person where to touch the surface of the forge the forge would react and punish the being with a great many effects but none are good. A soulforge might be used as an ordinary forge to Create Legendary items which carry great effect and can change the course of history in an instant. Though be wary Only a true master may use the soulforge to do their bidding as a soulforge is extremely unpredictable otherwise. Even under the right conditions the item created by the soulforge can harm the user, even resulting in a long and painful death. If ones skills permit they might be able to use the soulforge to augment warriors with great power and create beings known as Heroes. The last use of a soulforge is creating race or changing a races power, Meant only for the most knowledgeable of folk this ability allows complete power of life and death.

Giants of the Everforests
-------------------------------------------------------
A distant relative to the Frost Giants of Frostfell the occupants of the Everforests refer to themselves as the Bertra. A shorter race of Giants the Bertra are a distinctive white-ish blue colour are well suited for the extreme terrain and weather patterns of the Everforests with bulging muscles. They stand tall within the eight to nine foot marks and share many of the same physical traits their southern cousin do. Having been at war with the Thornmere clan of Thormast the Bertra have become an extremely well organized society building their fortresses and cities completely out of ice using their distinct ice based magic. Their use of Guerilla tactics and hunting instinct has brought the Thornmere's to their knees forcing the sole survivor to return to Thormast. The almost daily blizzards of heir lands deter even the best equipped and organized professional armies, A once hunter gatherer society has evolved into a sophisticated society revolving around their strongest warrior in a feudal type monarchy looking towards the seas to expand.

The Darklings
-----------------------------------------------
The product of a dead Soulforge the Darklings are organized groups of mysterious beings who are invulnerable to the weapons of the realms and viciously aggressive towards the realms with active Soulforges. Attacking the other realms surrounding them scorching the lands and massacring the people until the final stage of the attack where the Darklings dig to the Soulforge and destroy the realm merging it with their own. Extremely organized and operating like many armies with Generals leading campaigns the Darkling siege fortresses with great efficiency and little resistance from many of the realms. The Darklings are of group think operating with one mind they are only harmed by their own weapons. A truly dangerous foe.

Well I guess I will start with setting. The main realm is Known as Quarin and is home to five continents and twenty eight races that have some form of civil society. There are an additional Two realms that I am working on and vary with their own races, cultures, languages, and structures. As well there is a realm in which a superior god like race lives and watches over Quarin. In between realms there is a void known as the Abyss from which the main antagonists come from periodically slaughtering the inhabitants of the three realms.

Twenty eight races? I'm sorry, but damn...
Can they people from one realm go to another?
Does everyone know about the realms?
Can the Gods go into the Abyss or the other realms, or is it like the Aedra is TES?
And are you doing this for fun, or for something like school?

Realms are formed by the use of Soul forges and provide magic to the races that are born with souls (all races at one time had souls though souls have been lost due to angering the God like beings who curse a race.) The abyss is the lack of a realm where there should be one. This occurs when a soulforge is broken or used to strengthen another. Soulforges are physical in a realm and can be saught out and used like any other forge though it has another use locked away in it. Use of a soulforge as a normal forge results in extremely powerful weapons that in some cases can actually kill the wielder. The use of a soulforge as a tool results in multiple varying effects though only a true master can get the result they want a hundred percent of the time.

Cool, I kind of want to do this now...
And editing right now, can another realm be created by using a Soul forge?

this is purely for fun and the that is the races for a single realm that is nearing completion the other two and potential of many more are separate. Races if skilled enough in the use of magic (I will detail in a bit) can travel between realms and the abyss being where a realm should have been is enterable with the potential to create or fix a new soulforge which is quite difficult but possible. As there are a potentially infinite realms People know of them but are either to weak or content with their position though on one occasion a races has gone to another realm and colonized. and the Gods are not true gods they are merely a Supreme race that has influence in Quarin, They can go where they like in a true "God" form or in a vessel which they create.

Each realm has a soulforge with the potential for an infinite amount of realms Though a master of the soulforge might take one soulforges essence and return it to his own making it stronger as well as strengthening the things it can do even merge realms. Though sadly a soulforges essence can only be transferred not created or destroyed.

in actuality is closer to the void. the Abyss may consist of an dead soulforge, Darkilngs (I will detail in a bit), or more commonly both.

A darkling is the creature that is formed in a dead soulforge with out a soul it is immune to magic. Being fitted in a suit of armor that is impenetrable to all but it`s own weapon. Not particularly skilled as a combatant a Darkling subdues realms by marching In a horde across a realm destroying everything and then if time permits seeking out it`s soulforge and capturing it`s essence carrying it back to the Abyss at where it sits unmoving, unless of course someone enters the abyss and claims it. At which point they may do with it what they like. Darkling weapon craft is the result of eons of work with a dead soulforge which might be used only to create darklings and their weapons.
