So I've been thinking about our current setting and the kind of peoples and races contained therein. We all know about the Novustrals, Celisians, and Kracians. When I made this Rp forum though I had in mind to have more than three races populating the game world. Of course some would be stranger than others, some bordering on being non-human. And if you find yourself in a situation were your creation isn't human that's fine as well, but make it somewhat related to humanity. I'll be putting up a beast competition next week for things that are too out there to be considered human, so just keep that in mind if you come up with something awesome and save it for later. Keep in mind that these "Humans" can have various lifespans, features, cultures, pretty much anything you want. So have fun! There is a template you can us below.

Lands: They live far to the West, and only rarely venture to Celis and Novus to trade.
Diet: They eat mainly fruits and breads, and they refuse to eat meat of any kind
Mating: They can only mate by removing their suits, and then it proceeds in a fashion similar to that of Celisian mating.
Family: They're family structure works similarly to that of Celisians.
Stereotype: That they are cold, scary boogeymen who have no understanding of normal life.
Religion: No religion
Morals and Ethics: They all have strong moral in regards to commitment, and almost always see projects out to an end. To do otherwise is one of the greatest crimes in their society.

Holidays: They have a symposium every 3 years, in which everyone in the society is free to show the community their inventions and other research.

History:
Spoiler:
After their early society was destroyed by an unknown assailant, they retreated to an area to the west, and went underground. Their they began farming with light-opening in the ceiling, and slowly grew slender from lack of need for muscle. They spent a lot of time studying and learning, soon discovering strong, lightweight metals and began creating suits for the adults of the civilization. They were then able to move onto the surface, and began working on a dual-area civilization, with part above and part below. As time went on they were attacked by the Novustrians, who viewed them as foreign, but used their new invention of gunpowder to rout them, and then established a cold peace with both sides agreeing to non-aggression. They first encountered the Celisians on a trading mission, and soon set up trade routes by which they come every year or two and trade various precious metals and building equipment in exchange for lumber and crops.

Picture: Female / Male
Name: Valyrns
= Physical Information =
Species: R. yeritus
Genus: Reulya
Family: Arivous

Average Weight: 87 lbs.
Hair Colors: Honey blond, bleach blond, white, strawberry red, black.
Eye Colors: Dark red, navy, dirty gold, green.
Skin Complexion: Cream, ghostly white, beige, khaki.
Hardiness: Despite their size, their muscles are incredibly tight, and their bones are reinforced with iron that naturally occurs during their growth. They prefer to live in the cold, although they will occasionally venture to milder temperatures. Their immune system is only experienced in the diseases they have built immunities to – Any new disease could wipe them out completely.
Strength: Most Valyrns are as strong as their parents at birth. Extreme conditioning will render some mild results, but otherwise they do not become stronger.
Agility: Valyrns are not sprinters, and are easily outrun because they become short of breath quickly.
Intelligence: While they are not good at arithmetic and writing, they excel in brainstorming. Valyrn architecture is triumphantly beautiful, and very inclusive of different elements. Their artists are also the most forward-thinking to be found.
Reflexes: 700 ms response – They are mentally too laid back to respond to stimuli rapidly.
Longevity: They live from 50-70 years on average. One child from every generation will live longer, for around 100 years. These are called Vahyrrn.

= Culture and Civilization =
Origins: They depart from a small island far to the South, which is still their home country.
Language: Before coming to Altarra, the Valyrns had no written language. Instead, they used a sign language, which they have now abandoned for the Common tongue.
Advancement: Technically, the people live in tribes, but all tribes answer to a series of representatives, or the Vahyrrn. They are advanced in usage of metals and their knowledge of machines is surpassing, but they choose to utilize conventional methods to create and build.
Lands: Erris, southern waters; Krace; Celis.
Diet: Their diet consists mainly of meat, which is needed to maintain their body structures. They cannot digest cellulose, so they don’t eat any plants found on the northern continents, although their homeland has certain types of plants that they can handle eating.
Mating: Valyrn society is matriarchal, because women tend to be larger than men. Men can take multiple lovers, but usually choose not to, and partners choose to leave as they tire of their lovers.
Family: Children always are under the father’s care. Every child goes through military training, but otherwise education is up to his or her parents. Since children can fight as well as or better than their parents, they often rule the household. Drawings on walls, sculptures, and other results from creative bursts are common in the homes.
Stereotype: Artistic midgets.
Religion: Valyrn peoples do not follow a deity, but all commonly believe in a greater force than them.
Morals and Ethics: For some reason, the Valyrns will never touch each others’ hair, and for this reason it is generally kept short or shaved off. It is considered disgusting to touch another’s hair. However, otherwise, the whole society sees each individual as their own person with their own ideas, and is very tolerant toward new ideas.
Rituals: Marriage and divorce do not exist.
Holidays: They do not celebrate holidays or birthdays, but have many parties in the absence of these celebrations.
Relations with other Races: Because they are so laid back, the Valyrns are often the ones to take the fall for other races. They are friendly, but they do not tolerate someone challenging one of their own personal beliefs.
History: The Valyrns originally evolved from a group of small people who moved to the island in exile. Where these ancestors were from was never recorded, but the Valyrns themselves have not fought in wars, for they always retain neutrality as a nation. Their history has been quiet, with few outbreaks. One civil war occurred in year 12 as they fought over whether or not to join a war, but it only lasted 3 months.

Name: Faelites
= Physical Information =
Species: H. Adipiscor.
Genus: Homo.
Family: Hominidae.
Order: Primates.
Description: The Faelites are born in sets of two characterised by male twins. They are almost always born to an unwilling mother and have a particularly short gestation period, from which another pair of twins are born. They are born with an extremely good ability to learn and expand their knowledge of the world. Usually Faelites are born with blond hair and blue eyes, but it can change due to the race from which they were born. They are muscular and take on some of the traits of their mothers race to blend in enough to mate again. In summary the Faelites live for almost nothing more than to make more Faelites, and they spread extremely quickly. This coupled with the fact that they are extremely resilient to harm, makes the only thing keeping them from spreading out of control the Durgans and their low longevity.
Average Height: 6'0 Is the average but one male is always slightly smaller than the other.
Average Weight: 160 lbs. See above.
Hair Colors: Light Blond, Blond, Dirty Blond, Red, Brown, Black.
Eye Colors: Blue, Dark Blue, Hazel, Green, Brown.
Skin Complexion: White, Dark, Brown.
Hardiness: Faelites have a very good immune system and are very resilient to physical damage. They can live everywhere their prey live, which constitutes most living hominids. Wounds that would disable normal Celisians would only hamper Faelites, although this hardiness is balanced out by the short amount of time they live.
Strength: Faelites are of an average strength depending on how much work each independent Faelite wishes to put into becoming stronger. Although some Faelites can become stronger than others and the average Celisian, by being born to a stronger hominid. Taking on characterisitcs of their mothers stronger race.
Agility: Faelites are rather good at running and getting out of the way of things. They are born with great stamina that only increases with age, and then in the later years begins to dwindle again. Faelites can become very good fighters and use this to their advantage while trying to take a mate.
Intelligence: Intelligence is something that Faelites in no way lack, they are very good at learning new things and implementing them into their lives. Although some things they can not easily comprehend, like the thing other raises call a "Conscious". Since they operate coldly and without mercy, often mistaken for just running on basic instincts. They make calculated and well thought out decisions. Not only do they learn quickly but they have a genetic memory, knowing the things that many past generations knew. Making them extremely dangerous.
Reflexes: They are almost twice as fast as normal humans when it comes to reacting to visual stimuli. They can see, hear, or feel something and act quickly and efficiently.
Longevity: Most Faelites live three to five years, although once in a great while Faelites will be born as triplets. The third baby can live for up to fifteen years, but his children lack the quick gestation period of his brothers.

= Culture and Civilization =
Origins: No one knows exactly where the Faelites originated from including the Faelites. Some guess that they are descendants from the Celisians ancestors from long past, but this has been discredited due to their extremely strange nature.
Language: Faelites are able to quickly pick up the languages that their mothers know. They are also born with a genetic memory and automatically know their races ancient language. And any other language that their ancestors from a few generations back might have learned.
Advancement: Faelites are as advanced as the civilization they are born into.
Lands: Altarra.
Diet: The majority of the Faelites diet consists of meat, although plans will also be consumed. Faelites have a disposition for the meat of other human races and hominids. Some speculate that they need the flesh of others to live, but nothing has been proven.
Mating: Faelites find a strong female of the race they were born into, or of a race they are near. Once they find a strong smart woman they get her alone and rape her, leaving the area slowly there after. The woman becomes pregnant and gives birth after 3-4 months to baby twins. These twins will reach maturity within eight months and are capable of mating after four.
Family: Faelites run away from home at an early age and don't have a family life. The only people Faelites are loyal to are other Faelites, especially their brothers. They are known to go through extreme measures to protect each other and make sure they survive.
Stereotype: Flesh Eating Rapists.
Religion: No one knows if the Faelites have a religion, if they did though it would be dark and sadistic.
Morals and Ethics: They treat each other with respect especially the smaller brother to the larger. Although when it comes to relations outside of their own kind, they are thoughtless and cold, unless it is to their benefit to play a role.
Rituals: The only ritual the Faelites seem to undertake is the consumption of human flesh.
Holidays: Unknown.
Architecture: None.
Clothing: Depends on the Faelites host nation.
Relations with other Races: They rape and eat the women of other races, and are not looked kindly on. Considered abominations in many other cultures.
History: Not much can be said about the Faelites history since they have been doing what they do best for so long.

Travis, you would make a buncha rapists. P:

Okay, all joking aside, I think everyone might be done creating for now, but the deadline isn't until Sunday, so in the meantime, I might brainstorm and submit another.

I think Daniel's got the upper hand. Might have to change that. xD

The reason they always only have 256 members of the race, or even how they manage to keep it like that is unknown, because nobody has ever managed to ask the question without being squished.

History:
Spoiler:
The Gangai have lived in the ocean for millennia, but only started to venture to the surface in recent centuries. They still keep to themselves, but their existence is no longer and urban-legend.

Name: Dashkin a.k.a. “Biteys”
= Physical Information =
Species: H. Dashkrunis
Genus: Homo. (*snickers*)
Family: Hominidae.
Order: Primates
Description: Humanoid; have never truly been observed in the wild, more seen then disappeared. They possess a mane covering their heads entirety, leaving only their eyes to be seen, mouths if open. They have a row of extremely sharp teeth, thus they are carnivorous, mostly feeding on smaller animals within the shared habitat. Atop their heads are 2 horns, sizing different between males and females. Their torsos and arms are almost identical to humans, having only minimal hair across them, as well as the muscle make up to match, leaving their evolution to be questioned. Below the waist though, they’re covered in hair down to their feet. The knees of these beasts bend back, more like the back legs of a horse, but their footprints have shown evidence of toes and claws rather than hooves of any sort.
Average Height: 5’4
Average Weight: 140lbs
Hair Colors: Dark brown, black, blonde.
Eye Colors: White.
Skin Complexion: Very pale skin, shown to be a consequence of being nocturnal.
Hardiness: Shown to have an extremely strong immune system from what they’re known to eat. They live almost anywhere that water is a commodity. While appearing as human, they heal much quicker from lacerations, bruising and internal damage such as broken limbs and organ trouble.
Strength: Not much muscle mass shown, appeared to be more lean muscle than pure strength and size. Weaker than any Celisian, but about the same in terms of Kracians.
Agility: Extremely agile and quick, they can outrun even some horses. The woods seem to be their main grounds, as they can navigate the terrain easily, dodging trees and other obstacles in their path without so much as a hint of trouble, even at their sprint. Obvious links to their reflexes as being “superhuman.”
Intelligence: They possess no more enhanced technology than simple machines, but have a greater grasp on knowing nature and land. They are aware of weather patterns and animal migrations as far as Celisians have ever explored and possibly beyond. They seem more animalistic than human though, holding no real art in their civilizations.
Reflexes: Extremely good reflexes, being able to make any Celisian soldier look foolish trying to catch one. Also have great coordination- having unbelievable balance while moving on uneven surfaces such as cliffs or mountain regions.
Longevity: The oldest on record was 60 years of age.

= Culture and Civilization =
Origins: Evolving from common ancestors of the Kracians, findings from anthropological sites have shown evidence they have been around Altarra longer than the Celisians. Being true natives of the lands show as a major possibility as it would explain their knowledge of the world.
Language: They rely on roars, growls and chirps in their language, showing no understanding in our own common. Conditioned though, they can understand certain words, but haven’t the vocal abilities to pronounce them, a step they lost in evolution.
Advancement: They are very simple, living in small huts made of mud and branches. They also possess no weapons of any sort, hunting with their own claws and teeth.
Lands: They remain in the temperate parts of Altarra, not being able to withstand the colds of the extreme north or south. While living in such a wide area, their small tribes have never been found due to their nocturnal habits as well as them not seeming to want being seen. While they choose to remain a mystery to us, our questioning them only grows stronger.
Diet: Having extremely sharp teeth, they are carnivorous as stated above, though a flat part on the back of them shows that plants can be devoured as well.
Mating: They show to have no more than a birthing relationship with the opposite sex, females caring for the young one as the males are only used to produce them. No interspecies breeding has been seen or recorded. It is believe to never happen, especially with the skittish behavior of these creatures around other intelligent species.
Family: A mother-cub relationship is around since birth, the mothers caring for their children until complete maturity. The fathers are more just for conception than having a part in their offspring’s life. They tend to stay apart from the families, but the entire family is always within one of the tribes.
Stereotype: Nocturnal Goat People.
Religion: None Recognized.
Morals and Ethics: One dominant Dashkin is usually in charge of the tribe. Dominance seems to have a strong correlation with the size of their horns. Now while all get along inside their tribes, the chieftain is the one who organizes migrations to follow their food sources as well as the weather, keeping the tribe safe. They seem quite playful within their small societies as well as within the woods and other animals. One was witnessed “throwing rocks at a bear then running away from it’s victim.” They seem to be “pranksters” with their own kind.
Rituals: None Recognized.
Holidays: None Recognized.
Architecture: Simple mud and wood huts to live in, otherwise none. They are home amongst the land and have almost no real “buildings” of any sort.
Clothing: They choose their fur and skin.
Relations with other Races: They choose to remain in the shadows, not really trying to be noticed by any others then themselves. They stick to their own kind, not wanting any attention from unwanted species, such as ourselves.
