Story

In the world of Runetaria, there was once an ancient land hidden somewhere in the far south. It was governed by a race called the Runarians, a peaceful and small race that was already thriving even before humans or any other races came to be. They had treaties with the human race, but could not attempt to have large scale trades or socialize with one another since the land was too far off from the human kingdom. The land was hidden by a large and very beautiful land called Etherwoods, filled with huge forests and mountains. The leader of the Runarians was Krendor, a very kind and wise man. With him as leader, the Runarians became a very rich race. The land was at peace for thousands of generations and had a few meetings with with the humans, renewing their treaty every century. Both kingdoms were happy, and nothing disturbed their peace.

That is, until the Terrors appeared. The Terrors are a very mysterious and large race. There is almost nothing known about them, only that they appear like a dark mist in the shape of large shadows, and have glowing eyes and mouth that always seems to be grinning. The Terrors were once a quiet, but huge race, even the humans and other races such as elves, orcs and dwarves have claimed that the Terrors are not actual terrors, they were once silvery and bright beings incapable of speech known as the Magus, who possess unlimited energy. They are even more old than the Runarian race, and know many secrets about the world of Runetaria. Now they have become dark abominations that feed on the soul of living creatures. They invaded the land of the Runarians, and lay waste on the Etherwoods, the Runarians fought with their special abilities to create Runes, weapons that are imbued with awesome powers. But unfortunately, due to the countless numbers of Terrors, the Runarians were almost wiped out, and their weapons turned into stones, now hunted by treasure hunters all over the world, with their power and true form hidden within.

The remaining Runarians, including Krendor, fled the land to search for a new beginning in co-existence with humans. But as they were leaving, the Terrors pursued them all the way to the kingdom. In desperation, Krendor sacrificed himself to save his race. His corpse, now without a soul, turned into sand. The Terror that fed with his soul glowed bright, it's core now purified again, and was converted back into a Magus. The fleeing Runarians saw the whole event and were amazed. The Magus looked in the direction of the Runarians smiled and amazingly said "Go. Survive and succeed where our race has failed." and exploded. The explosion emitted a bright light that shone over the sky. The humans, on the far northern part of the Runetaria, saw the light and quickly sent investigation teams to find out what was going on. The core of the Magus somehow survived, rose into the sky and flew to a far off place, hidden to all the other races.

As for the surviving Runarians, they met the expeditions and were escorted back to the human kingdom. In there they relayed the story to the king of the humans, Ish. Ish ordered the whole story written, and so it was. The Terrors were never seen again, and the Etherwoods became The Lost Forest, and the Runarians became The Ancients. They are now co-existing with humans, surviving up to this very day, they have become an ancient race.

The Runarians indeed survived, but they have lost the place they belong to, the place that they call home. Their beautiful paradise now lies in shambles and has been tainted into a dark place. The wise Magus, the only race with enough knowledge to know what dark corruption lies within Runetaria and how to stop it has been turned into frightening beings that are soulless, and it looks like the only knowledge left of their race hid somewhere in the deepest parts of the world. Who can restore the world back to it's peaceful state and stop whatever taint it is that is infecting Runetaria? Will it be you?

Just curious, when you say dwarves don't have an obsession with facial hair like they do in most fantasy stuff, or have you for whatever reason made it so no dwarf has any facial hair whatsoever?

Averniraider24: I meant like use a name that is appropriate, not something like I'mA*******, etc.

JACKinbigletters: Str is basically the damage causing stat, End measures your basic HP/Energy/Mana
Agi as usual, is the speed. When you have higher Agi than an opponent you strike first or you can strike multiple times. Luck(Lck) basically improves the chance you can find rare items and score critical hits, but does not improve base damage. Sorry for not explaining this earlier. I didn't have enough time.

anewbeginning: Well you can customize the look, but I actually mean I don't prefer big bushy beards since that follows the normal dwarf stereotype. But you are welcome to customize the look of your character.

Voyage2: please do not alter the height. I already picked the height setting to make the human race realistic. Though 5'4" is the normal human height. I was just mentioning that.
