Story
In the world of Cascadia, peace reigns over all. The many sentient races that exist on the planet get along with each other quite well. Choosing to cooperate with each other instead of waging mindless war over trivial things. They share among even other races, not just their own. And so, prosperity reigned over the planet for many, many years. Although recently, destruction has been abundant. Nobody knows why, but many people have been growing violent over the days and spontaneous personality changes are occurring. Mindless slaughter happens virtually everyday, even in well-protected cities. The different races began to blame each other, and all of this lead to the First Cascadian War. Alliances were made and people began to take sides. You are one of these people and you seek to find the reason for this carnage. Or will you instead take advantage of it?

Races

Human - The most abundant in Cascadia. They have no weaknesses and are naturally charming with a strong resolve.

Elf - Closely related to Humans, but have weaker bodies than humans. They are agile, intelligent, and have a knack for magic. Can see better in the dark than humans.

Dragonkin - A race that is half-dragon and half-human. In terms of physique, they are almost that of humans. They can fly for short bursts and are very capable in melee combat, but in turn are weak to magic and cannot cast any forms of it.

Dwarf - Short and stout, they are dwarves. They have tough bodies and are rather strong for their size. Not very agile though. Due to generations of spending most of their lives in the underground, they can see perfectly well in the dark.

Classes

Warrior - The mighty warrior, often put in the front line of battles. They charge in with no regrets. Very tough, it's hard to put a Warrior down. Specializes in outlasting opponents. Starts with a Longsword, Hide Armor, and Wooden Shield.
Starting Ability: Staggering Blow - Hit the opponent with your weapon's pommel, dealing 50% damage but stunning them for 1 round.

Starting Ability: Double Strike - Strike the opponent twice with both daggers, dealing 200% damage. Can be split amongst multiple enemies.

Archer - Although not as agile as the Rogue, they kill their targets from afar with hawk-eye precision. Starts with a Wooden Bow (limitless regular arrows), Leather Armor, and a Hunting Knife.
Starting Ability: Piercing Arrow - Shoot the enemy with a specialized arrow, dealing 125% damage and ignoring 50% of their armor.

Mage - Specialized in the arcane arts, they are a force to be reckoned with. They kill their targets mercilessly with magic. Starts with a Wooden Staff and Cloth Robes.

Fireball - Hurl a fireball at the enemy. Dealing 175% damage and a 25% chance of inflicting Burn, damaging them for 25% of your damage each turn for 2 turns.

Well I like this. Well organized and caught my attention. But currently since I'm participating in 2 RPG's and hosting 1 popular one, I don't want to stress myself out xD..

I will keep this on the backburner though in case I leave another RPG or something.

After your village was burnt down by bandits, you decided that you needed to get stronger. So that nothing would get in the way of your vengeance. You'll need to pick a route to go through, though. Where any of them will lead you, you have no idea.

Ashwood Forest - So named for the ash-like color of the trees and the eerie atmosphere that surrounds it.
Mulwark Road - A road that many people constantly pass through. Although you have no information about where it leads.
Feral Plains - A plain so called for the many species of animals that make it their home. Many of them are fierce.

You stride confidently into the Feral Plains. You see nothing at first, so you just keep walking forward. There's nothing really out of the ordinary, and the plains look the same for what appears to be miles. After walking for a while, you hear something snarling from behind you. What do you do?

You don't have a bow because Warriors don't start with one?

You draw your sword and shield and turn around, ready for whatever is behind you. A red blur leaps at you but you manage to react quickly and swat it aside with your shield. (rolled 4) A second, grey blur leaps at you as well, but you swing at it with your sword and draw blood. (rolled 5) Whatever it is, it whimpers from the blow. You step back a bit and look over your enemies, they appear to be a Dire Wolf and a Grey Wolf. They snarl at you and bare their fangs, ready to strike again! What do you do!

Dire Wolf, 25/25 HP
Grey Wolf, 12/15 HP

Tutorial: Surprise Rounds and Saving Rolls
A surprise round occurs when you get a surprise attack on the enemy and vice versa. A D6 is rolled to see whether you manage to react in time or not. If you fail, I roll for your Agility stat to reduce damage.
