I don't think I've ever posted here but I thought I'd share something I've been working on since before joining Revora.

You may or may not know but my main goal in life is to be a game designer and RPGs are one of my favourite areas.
So the following fantasy is a concept of an RPG world that I'm creating and evolving.

Things are still pretty early in development because it's a big world I'm creating and there will be many stories to be told.

But I'll share some notes on it here.

The world is called Rudik it's a large world with many different species/races and cultures.

The world of Rudik is home to Humans,Sprites,Raldon,Dreks,Wex,Nerros,Vade,Burls,Magnas and Fasch there are more races but they are of lesser import.

The humans are pretty much what you expect they are in the middle in terms of Strength,Intelligence and agility but they are the most numerous of the Rudik peoples.
They are also very militaristic and the chiefly responsible for the various wars and conflicts that occur in Rudik.

The Sprites are Elfin people but unlike traditional Elfin they are advanced in technology and industry but also have unknown powers.The sprites have in the past been the victims of a genocide by a Human empire the impacts of this genocide can be still be seen many years later.

The Raldons,Dreks and Wex are a reptilian people who lost their homelands a long time ago in the same war that caused the Sprite genocide.
The Raldons are the largest of the 3 races and also the largest of the more numerous peoples.
They are often viewed as slow witted but are often about as intelligent as Humans.
They can stand at around 8-9ft tall and just as wide.

The Dreks are smaller standing at around 5ft tall and a more slender they are generally held with lower regard than Humans and Raldons and are often involved in criminal practices.

The Wex are reclusive and primitive and dwell near rivers and lakes they are slightly smaller than the Dreks and are sleeker and are natural swimmers.

The Nerros are mysterious and the youngest of the species they are rarely seen outside of their homelands and are often (falsely) thought to be immortal.
They hold a strange connection with the Sprites.

Fasch are an aquatic fishlike people with great minds and are skilled in lore,language,magic and sometimes even Telekinesis and Telepathy.
They are the great minds of Rudik but are weak in body being among the smallest of the Rudik peoples.

Vade are small rodent like creatures very small,agile and cunning they usually stand around 4ft tall and have very long ears and slender bodies.
The Vade are often used as thieves,spies and messengers because of their natural speed,stealth and agility.
Though small they are ferocious fighters with sharp claws and teeth.

Burls are apelike and stoic they rarely leave their temples but are known as wise and noble people.
They stand around 6ft tall and have strong limbs are very agile.
Burls live in tribal communities and have their own religion which they follow devoutly.
Burls are often Monks,Martial Artists (Kenkai) and holymen.
They are peaceful and get along well with all races though the Vade think they are pompous.

Finally the Magnas who are large mammals resembling a hybrid of Walruses,Moles and the like.
They live near the sea and are excellent sailors and merchants the Magnas are often very wealthy.
They are good natured and can form close friendships that they hold lifelong.
Some Magnas become Pirates.

That was a quick rundown of the more populous races there are others but I'll get into that another time.

The Raldons,Dreks and Wex all speak a native tongue from their homeland called the Ralk tongue.
I have done some work on the language and depending on interest I may divulge some of it.
"Basseghkro","Fross","Fre" and "Krehwa Drer fho" are small samples of the language :blink:

I have a rough map of the world drawn with various landmarks marked but I'll have to keep working on this over time.
There are quite a few legends and myths in Rudik concerning it's history.
There are religions,holymen,empires,guilds and all manner of things.

I will likely upload some concepts of various peoples and races once I have a scanner again.

If anyone finds this interesting I'll continue to post more about Rudik.

Looking good mate!

But instead of creating an RPG for it, why don't you start off with a mod for BFME?

It could be a great RTS!
