Forbidden Lands: Racer

Post by jaked_one_reborn »

Racer - de er rimeligt fantasy-agtige...

Jeg tænker ikke på at ændre så meget, men det er nok en god ide at vælge de mere civiliserede racer. (Men sig lige til, hvis en af de vilde racer “bare er det eneste rigtige" for dig!)

Og husk GM’en er ikke racist - men han er sandsynligvis den eneste i Forbidden Lands, der ikke er det*. Og racismen i denne verden handler ikke om onde online kommentarer: den begynder ved overlagt mord, går videre til slaveri og slutter ved folkemord. Som de fleste i denne verden mener, at der faktisk er for få af helt generelt… :!:

*Noter:
1) Gobliner er generelt ikke racister - men det når ingen at opdage.
2) Wolf-Kin er ikke bare racister - de er også kannibaler.
3) Måne-elverene er heller ikke racister - i deres sprog er de andre folk slet ikke racer, men en slags kvæg - som guderne belejligt nok, har skabt for at tjene Måne-elverne. *ANDSERVEYOUWILL!!!*
4) Hvis en dværg fortæller dig, at han ikke er racist - så er det et baghold.
5) Mennesker anses for at være “de mindst værste” af stort set alle racer. På nær andre mennesker.
6) Søsterskabet, de omvandrende jordemødre og healere, er slet, slet ikke racister - med mindre du forurener blodlinjerne - så er du død. Din raceforrædder. (Bonus Oplysning: Koma og pludselige blødersygdomme er helt almindelige blandt Søsterskabets fjender. Sikke noget.)
7) Rustens Brødrer er naturligvis heller ikke racister. De optager dog kun mennesker og tjener også kun mennesker. Men det er pga. deres gud og ikke racisme. Så det er noget helt anderledes - men mindst lige så blodigt.

HUMAN
Humans came to Ravenland, as it once was known, as intruders. You know it and you can see it in the eyes of the other kin, whether they hate you openly, fear you or just tolerate you be-cause you are useful to them. To them, you are intruders and will remain so even after genera-tions have passed. Your ancestors fought against the elves, dwarves, and orcs in the armies from Alderland who invaded Ravenland against the will of the Raven God. Or they sought sanctu-ary from the war, as refugees and settlers. Your ancestors came walking from Alderland across the mountains in the south or riding from Aslene in the west, were put through the meat grinder of war, and stayed after the din of battle faded, the roads were closed, and demons feast-ed on whatever remained.

When the Blood Mist fell like a shroud across Ravenland, your ancestors were forced to huddle together for ten generations, till the soil, and simply try to survive. But now the Mist has lifted, and the world has opened up again. You have exchanged the plow for a sword. You were born here, and you will take that which others won’t give you.

ELF
At the dawn of time, you fell like a rain of glim-mering rubies, scattered across the land by the Red Wanderer of the Heavens. Your task was to cover the barren land in life, for the Wanderer wished to lay his eyes on beauty. You clothed your-self in flesh and brought plants from the ground, and soon you could walk singing through the lush forests of Ravenland, to the joy of the Wanderer.

The god Clay drew animals from the mud, fish and toads from the mires, and birds from the clouds, and the Great Craftsman gave you the task of shepherding them. The dwarves aided you by preparing the ground for your art. Then the humans arrived. Their Raven God bought half the land for them and gave you the orcs in exchange, but humans were false and soon attacked you, with demons in tow. Since you were few in number, you sent the orcs into battle, but those craven creatures failed you. Your elders claim that everything will return to the way things were if you only wait, that humankind will die off and wither away just like time eats away at all the stoneless. But the younger among you do not wait. Ravenland is your heritage. The despicable ones have stolen it and befouled it. You will cleanse it.

HALF-ELF
You are the best of two kin. You were born from humans and elves after these two kin traded hostages during The Shift. You were conceived because those things that are good, strong, and vibrant always find their way to each other. Your elven ancestors taught you the ways of magic, granted you wisdom and long life, but you rejected their torpid lan-guor. Your human ancestors gave you vigor, but you rejected their foolishness and false-hood in disgust, as well as their smell and crude appearance. Both your ancestral kin, elves as well as humans, have failed you, and they are the subject of both ridicule and bit-ter shame among you. The half-elves are the crown of creation and you will strike forth to finally mold the world into what the gods, or you yourselves, intended.

In the beginning, the god Huge gave your an-cestors a small pebble and the task of building a world around it. They stoked their forges and sang their stone songs so their words took hold and the sphere grew. Over many generations, the dwarves expanded the sphere. Soon, the curve of the world was barely visible. And so, you will continue building until the sphere reaches the god’s fiery hearth in the sky.

The lazy and useless elves were given the task of growing grass and trees across the surface of the sphere, to keep it moist and prepare it for new layers, like the carpenter who prepares a wooden surface before it is glued to another. Thus, the elves have a task to fulfill and you tolerate them. The humans are different. They interrupt-ed your holy task of building the world. Your ancestors were tricked into taking the orcs as servants in exchange for a piece of the land you have forged, but the useless beasts betrayed you as soon as the inevitable war broke out. Humans are false and many, but so are lice, while you are the chosen workers of the god Huge. You chase the vermin with weapon in hand, and the work continues. Only the younger of your kin are lured into the harsh light of the world, and run around like wheezing humans without goal or purpose.

HALFLING
Everyone is happy and tubby in your family. They sing humorous songs in the inns, and drink and smoke, but when darkness falls they vomit in the flowerbeds and go home to beat their children. Your crazy aunt is locked up, and no one wants to acknowledge your even more twisted relatives even though everybody knows they are out there in the woods. You clean the flowerbeds and oil the wooden facade of your burrow so the neighbors will see it and be forced to go out as well, and everyone smiles and nods, even though they hate and slander each other as soon as the opportunity arises.

You can’t stand it anymore. You’re going out into the world and never coming back again. You want blood on your knife and gold in your purse, to eat dangerously spicy food and see streets that no one cares to sweep, in vil-lages where no one grins without reason.

WOLFKIN
Weaklings, all of them. Need to go inside and warm their paws by the fire after a day in the woods. Need to boil the meat so they can stomach it. They couldn’t stand the breath of the Huntress, so they died like weak pups. All the rot in the world springs from its weak-ness. You and your pack live as was intended. You hunt. You howl together and beat sticks and drums because your own voices have grown weak. Enough is enough. You are leaving to teach the weaklings how everyone should live. And if someone says that the wolfkin did not roam the first forests, they will feel your claws at their throat and you will taste their blood.

ORC
Elves and dwarves enslaved your ancestors. But when the war came, they needed the courage and strong arms of the orcs. Then they fled when the tide of war turned against them. Now, you are free. You will kill all the humans that have slaughtered your brothers. They killed them with horrible sorcery and with demons from their unclean dreams. You despise the elves. Dwarves are wretches. This is the time of the orcs. You are many and you are strong, and you will show them a land where the orcs are in charge. The clans grow. You will make Ravenland great again. But first, you will go out into the world to ravage and have some fun.

GOBLIN
The elders say you are the dark brothers of the halflings. Like you give a shit! All you know is that you live while the lardbags don’t even try. What do halflings know about howling with wolves, licking blood off drippertrees under a full moon or making love among net-tles? If you didn’t keep nightwatch over their pretty villages, trolls and wolfkin would have torn them apart a long time ago. You say enough and be gone with that! The world’s out there, swollen with smells and flavor and silver and thrills. You’ll be taking off into the dark, fingers dug deep into your wolf ’s fur, froth washing your face. The night’s alive and you’re the ones living it!

Jeg konstaterer, at grådighed, fordomsfuldhed og almindelig tomhjernethed lader til at være de mest udbredte dødsårsager.

Well, that's a change from Planet Earth.... :D
