Staruuk, more than millennia ago was not as it is today; blood stained the rivers red and made the oceans glisten in its crimson colour. Men and boys were not seen in an everyday life, rather sharpening their swords, axes, and picks, readying themselves for a fight which would not be more than a few days away… Darkness was the way of this world, that hate, animosity, greed, and the barbaric nature of all would be the only ruler of the world though that did not stop any of the empires from fighting one another. Elves, whose capital city is Amarthamber, were the most skilled archers throughout the land; they were notorious for being able to shoot their bows from their city to the human city, Arios. Perhaps that is why in the conflicts of which the world was known for, they fought together, although with much animosity still lingering between them.
Humans, who were the most skilled in all the land for their swordsmanship and harvests, were, like the elves, peaceful at home yet ruthless on the battlefield. From a young age boys would be recruited into sword training for battle, honing their skill to the best of their ability until the day in which they fought. The Humans and Elves fought the Dwarves, from Delarr, and the Orcs, from Gilgumesh. Orcs, a strong and fierce people, lived to mine and fight with their pickaxes, which would earn them the nickname “Pickers” in war; during this time they were rumoured to be allied with the dark dragons which would attack all of the land, divesting anything in its path. This was coupled with their immunity to fire, weapon, and armour making abilities.
Dwarves, the most skilled axe wielders in the entire world could, even with their alleged height issues, take down the tallest redwoods and use them for their underground tunnels which matched their Orcish counterparts. Both Orcs and Dwarves were looked down upon by the Humans and Elves during this time; a reason to why they fought so well together and did not have animosity of the Humans and Elves.
Known only today as the War, it was what led the world to what it is today. This was a time when the killings and the death of all the races reached its highest and most horrific state.
It is not known from which side the first attack was sent, nor is it talked about; all that is known is that the Humans and Elves allied as many times before went to war with Orcs and Dwarves. The reason for the war was due to the Humans and Elves accusing the Orcs and Dwarves of stealing away both the Prince of the Elves, Strider, and the Princess of the Humans, Mackenzie, who were betrothed by the Kings of each Kingdom causing a bond to end their quarrels. The Dwarves and Orcs had made a likewise claim about the Orc Prince of Grimslag, and the Dwarf Princess of Dolvar, who were likewise betrothed.
The War waged for a century with generation after generation dying, with no one looking like they would emerge the winner… The Great cities decimated by the war, looked more like hell than a capital for a race. Realising the war was at a violent stalemate both the Elvin and Humans agreed to meet with their enemies to discuss how to move on, however; this was a ruse on both sides, both sending assassins’ in their place, aimed to kill one another. This news swept the land and with that the war was no longer one side vs another; the lack of honor on both sides caused people of nations to rise up and wage war against their own Kings. What is to be done when war wages between one another and at home? Who is the real enemy? Regardless this did cause something which would change all. With all the races so busy killing one another, the creatures for which lived in the wilderness and who all killed, started to multiply without interjection from any kingdom; Eventually these beasts overran the land and all seemed lost.
With the world coming to an end in hell fire, a light, a beam of light ignited the world and from the heaven emerged the lost Princess’ and Princes’ to their kingdoms. Although this centuries’ after their disappearances they had not aged a day, with their direct families dead their pictures and memories were remembered in the Kingdoms.
Without a word all landed in the cities and in a flash with which would illuminate the entire cosmos separated the world of Staruuk into sections moving the kingdoms away from one another. They erected gates from which nations could travel and declared that all fighting between the races as a whole would stop immediately.
Explaining that they had ascended to enlightenment and when they had vanished, it had not been an abduction of another race, but the deity Cuthulu had brought them to the heavens to learn the ways of divine immortality. These four now the Rulers of each kingdom swore and still do to, protect all those who enter their cities walls regardless of race. And that any ability of which was held by a race would be given to each other so all would be able to be equal in what they wished to do. Finally with their gratitude for Cuthulu they built a Market for all to use and with which has a temple in his honour, draped with painting of him; an almost squid looking character.
Although the War of the Races is over, and people are at peace with each other; their still exists the quest for power. Factions, a setup of people who fight together, now of all races exist throughout the former Staruuk all aiming to be the strongest and most powerful. They fight and if you wish to survive you would do well to join or start one. The question is now, which side are you on?
