Dracath

One of the sentient races. Dracathi are humanoid reptilian creatures, believed to be descended from an ancient ancestor of the Water Dragons. They are ferociously strong and capable of withstanding tremendous punishment, however they are quick to anger and have difficulty comprehending anything but the most basic intellectual tasks. They are natural swimmers and possess the ability to breathe underwater, which allows them to seek out hidden locations that other races would find inaccessible.

Back to the top of the page


Dwarven Language

Dwarves are logical and methodical creatures, and this is reflected in their language. One aspect of the Dwarven language is the lack of nuance; for example "betzen" refers to any kind of alcoholic drink, or indeed alcohol itself, regardless of what type of drink it might be (beer, ale etc.). "Grotz" refers to anything big without giving any idea of scale or magnitude. Precision is specified by numbers where necessary, but otherwise Dwarven words are used as generalisations and not specifications.

Paras Akarata

Elven Language: Roughly translated as "Duration of Life". This marks the number of centuries since the first recorded history of the ancient elves who first came to sentience and learned to record the passing of time in numerical fashion. They chose the date of the first meeting of the elders as the start point for their calendar system. In the Common tongue the Paras Akarata designation is replaced with ECM (Elven Council Meeting) but still refers to the same system, i.e. PA and ECM are interchangeable.
