Alteria is a world that is set in fantasy/medieval times. Full of knights, wizards, dragons and dungeons full of treasure.
Humans serve as one of the dominate races in Alteria, having various kingdoms and cities all over the world. Long ago, they enslaved the Elves for 500 years, till the Elves rebelled which lead to a war that destroyed much of Alteria. The humans however recovered and ended slavery of the Elves, though relationships with the Elves if very strained.
Humans worship various Gods, they're kingdoms have different methods of function, and they provide trade between each other
Elves are human looking creatures with pointy ears, very entune with nature. They looking after the forests and animals of Alteria, protecting it from those who would harmed them. Long ago, Elves had become enslaved by humans, where they forced to do they're every bidding. This lasted for 500 years, until a legendary Elven hero rose up, and lead a grand rebellion against the humans. The war ended and much of Alteria was destroyed, but in time, they rebuilt and the slavery of the Elves had ended. Though relationships with humans is very strained.
Dwarves are small humanoid creatures that live underground. They are often considered master smiths, forging power weapons and armor. The dwarves command a powerful empire that expands far underground. Despite they're mass power, the dwarves choose not to engage in conflict with the surface world races such as the humans or elves. Though that's not to say the dwarves never fought in wars, as they've encountered dangerous creatures while exploring the deep reaches of Alteria.
OrcsOne of the humanoid races of Alteria, with currently unknown origins. The Orcs are a savage, and somewhat nomadic race of warriors. Orcs are not friendly with any of the races of Alteria, but despite this, they don't seem to engage in conflict with them that often, unless provoked. Orcs when in battle seek to prove they're superiority by dominating they're enemies, and often ally with whoever is considered the strongest.
Orcs also have often teamed up with Trolls, utilizing they're brute strength in war or manual labor.
Some of the more larger and monstrous creatures in Alteria, the Ogres are big, fast, and incredibly strong. Ogres often live in dark places such as caves or dungeons. They feast on flesh, but for reasons unknown, most Ogres prefer to eat women.
Harpies are winged humanoids females. Harpies have human look features, such as two arms and two legs, but there are wings on arms and they are covered in features are on a number of parts on they're bodies, and they have talons instead of fingers and toes. Harpies are considered monsters in several societies in Alteria, and are hunted. Harpies were very wide in terms of numbers, but constant states of war destroyed many of the harpies nests. As such, harpies often kidnapped males from different races in order to reproduce and survive.
Creatures of clay, mud, rock, or steel, Golems are large and powerful creatures, created by the dwarves, and are a major reason why they're empire stands strong. Golems are mainly used as soldiers to battle against larger threats, but some of the nobles of dwarven society use Golems as servants.
DogsA very common animal in Alteria. Dogs are seen in tons of human based cities, all serving as pets. Some places however, such as Midvek, take special breeds of dogs, that are trained to be war hounds, meant to fight along side them. The war hounds are very strong and very intelligent, capable of understanding complex orders and even what people are saying, even though they can't understand them. Some war hounds have been known to get poisoned when tasting the blood of an orc, though if the dog survives, they become stronger, and won't become sick from it again.
One of, if not THE most dangerous creatures in Alteria, Dragons are intelligent and sentient flying monsters that rule in The Scorched Lands, following the order of their leader, King Kor'valak. While the majority of their race do not seek conflict, recent attacks from malicious and dangerous Dragons on villages and cities have strained the relations between the Dragons and the rest of Alteria greatly, along with the killing of innocent roosting Dragons. The Dragons also worship the Fire Goddess Ashela.
Giant, hulking worms living out in the Devil's Valley, Dune Stalkers tower over their human prey as they hunt by burrowing under the sands of the desert, emerging to surprise and quickly attack anything it can get its teeth into.
Giant and ravenous vultures, Scavengers stalk the skies of the Devil's Valley seeking lonely prey on the ground for which to capture and consume. While they normally hunt alone, some may group up into packs of two or three before they take their prey to their nests for their meals to begin.
While acting like a single creature, Peepers are actually amalgamations of hundreds upon thousands of tiny organisms formed into one entity. Much like Desert Hoppers, Peepers are extremely friendly and are one of the only friendly creatures in the Devil's Valley. Much like their name, Peepers communicate their feelings by peeping or by forming their bodies into various forms and shapes.
