The war between the humans and the orcs has been going on for as long as anyone can remember. But now, there is a bigger threat. The main commanders of both armies mysteriously vanished in battle, along with both of their troops. But there have been whispers of both commanders being seen in orcish territory, shambling about. Welcome to Karthagea.IntroductionWelcome to Shadow Of Karthagea, a role-playing forum game. Karthagea is a fantasy world with four main continents: Gallia, Haeda, Borealis, and Poseidia. Your adventure begins in the human capital of Crescent Light, located on the southwest coast of Gallia.RacesThere are a wide variety of different creatures in Karthagea. You are able to play as four of them. Each race has a certain quality that makes them different from the others.HumansHumans are often considered to be the most intelligent race, able to use tactics and strategy to win fights, more so than brawn. They have been regarded before as "Mostly Harmless", but this was proven wrong when the bloody war between humans and orcs began.OrcsOrcs are extremely strong, and extremely difficult to kill. What they lack in intelligence, they make up for in muscle. Their skin is tough, and can even resist light sword wounds. When an orc is enraged, he becomes stronger and feels no pain, but all sense of inhibition goes out the window.ElvesThe graceful elf race is extremely quick and agile. They are adept at sneaking around, but getting a good blow in on an elf will usually spell it's doom. Elves excel in a fight where they are able to approach their target unnoticed, and then dodge their target's attacks.DwarvesDwarves are very good with making things. If you want a good weapon, you should go to a dwarven forge to have it made. Dwarven metal is nearly indestructible, and is used in everything, from armour to weapons to buildings. They are extremely prideful, and insulting a dwarf is a good way to get yourself killed.ClassesWhile any race can be any class, some races are much better at certain roles than others.WarriorWarriors deal plenty of damage, and can arm themselves with a shield. The two ways of playing a warrior is a berzerker style, where you have a high damage output but low defense, or a tanky style, where you have lower damage, but high defense.Best Classes: Orc, DwarfNot Recommended for: ElfRogueA rogue works in the shadows, waiting to ambush their enemies and kill them before they have a chance to react.
