Exodus: About the Orks

Question: How do you anger an Ork? Answer: Exist The Orks are a large,chaotic and highly aggressive race that breeds at an alarming rate. Fortunately for the other races, Orks enjoy slaughtering each other as much as they do any other race. Contrary to popular belief this is not mindless slaughter. The Orks firmly believe in the 'survival of the fittest', since they are an asexual race, and all members are capable of procreating at seemingly random intervals, they see it as their duty to 'weed out' the weakest members so that their weakness does not manifest in another generation, thus strengthening the race as a whole and eventually causing the species to ascend to godhood. (OrK Pre-Exodus mythology consisted of one creator god, who after creating the orcs, killed himself for failing to create perfection... This god has no name as all creatures found to be failures are to be forgotten, even divine ones...) ORAKS: Just as all Orks may randomly procreate, some Orks may grow …

Exodus: About the Goblins

"You can always trust a Goblin to stab you in the back and then sell you a bandage." Overview: Goblins are a thin race of vaguely reptilian looking humanoids ranging from dark to light green in color. They stand about a foot shorter than an average human, appear to be almost emaciated and possess an overlarge set of teeth that gives a Goblin the facial appearance of madly grinning piranha fish. Much like the Orcs, the Goblins were a constant thorn in the side of humanity before the Exodus. Now, after the alliances forged in blood between Humans,Orcs and Goblins in the days of the Exodus they are merely a semi-constant thorn in the side of both Humans and Orcs. Fairly or unfairly Goblins have a reputation for being liars and tricksters, oft times merely for the sake of enjoying said lie or trick... While they are amazingly persuasive and charming for such a sinister looking race, they are quite individualistic and much like the orcs, do not hesitate to take advantage of others of…

Exodus: About the Elves

"The beauty of an Elf is only surpassed by the ugliness of her heart." In the common lore Elves were often portrayed as prancing through the forest protecting the humble beasts and tending to the needs of the fairy woodlands. As is the case with much 'common lore' it is completely and utterly wrong. The Elves believed that any and all things in the world were created for the use of the Elves. The Elves have no gods, the Elves believe they ARE gods. (Due in no small part to their longevity) Immediately before the Exodus in the Old World, while the other races banded together in a desperate bid to buy time so that entire populations could flee the seemingly unstoppable tide of the Enemy, the Elves stood fast in their forest domains secure in their defense and mildly amused by the destruction of the world around them.

While tens of thousands fled through the gate to the new world, Human Necromancers found a way to subvert  the living defenses of the Elves, allowing the Enemy…

Exodus: Five Pillars of the Republic

I. There are No Rights But Those Which You Earn. Power is for the capable; traditional hereditary rule led to incompetence in the face of the Enemy which in turn destroyed our old world. All titles, duties and honors are to be earned. The achievements or failures of the father shall not be reflected upon the son.
II. Citizenship is a Right. And as such, it must be earned. All born into the Republic are Citizens, but Citizenship is a duty, and shall be stripped from those found to be lacking.
III. Life is a Right. And as such , it must be earned. All born into the Republic owe the Republic a Debt of Work to reflect the sacrifices of the millions who have died to ensure your existence and to ensure that if the Enemy sets foot on our new home, we shall not be found wanting again. Those found guilty of the murder of a Citizen, have not just deprived a Citizen of his Rights, but have also stolen from the Republic that Citizen's future contributions and shall be consigned to Perpetual Ser…

Exodus: The Survivors

We Survived
We, the survivors of the Exodus emerged on the other side of the portal in the center of this ancient city, long abandoned. Gardens were well cared for, the buildings looked as if they had all been carefully maintained, yet not a soul was to be found within these silent walls. We rejoiced in our survival before our new reality had a chance to sink in...
Our Families were gone. Half of those who stepped foot into the portal, never emerged. We were now a collection of widowers, widows and orphans. Our old families were shattered, our loves lost to the void.
Our Gods were dead. The few priests who survived could no longer feel the presence of the Gods, their prayers and meditations found only the cold emptiness of a Divine tomb. Whatever had silenced the former inhabitants of our new home had also silenced their Gods as well. We had no higher power to turn to for answers. The old religions and faiths vanished quickly, to be replaced by a small, yet growing cult to the God Unbor…
