High Elves
Elves are a tall, slim and regal built race. They are seen as a noble race, and tend to be beautiful or handsome in appearance. Elves are a paled skinned race. Elves are strong and agile in comparison with humans and are often seen as more intelligent and wiser. Elves have a longer life span than humans do. Elves build refined weapons that are seen as master craftsmanship by other races. They use Swords, bows and lances mainly they don't like using crossbows or gunpowder weapons.

Drows / Dark Elves

The Dark Elves or Drows are the same as there high elf cousins a tall noble looking race with pale skin and are slender but unlike High Elves which are masters of light magic's, dark elves practice dark sorcery, and have become very adept at it. Dark Elves live in great cities made of dark stone. Dark Elves are constantly at war with their High Elf kin. They use masterly crafted weapons but they carry repeating crossbows, which seem to be unique to them. Dark Elf females that follow the path of sorcery are called Witch Elves and are a warrior sisterhood. Dark Elves always seem to where dark colours such as blacks, deep purples and dark blues.


Wood Elves

Wood Elves are similar to High Elves and Drow they are a slender noble race with pale skin and often pointed ears. Wood elves live deep with the forests and are guardians of the natural world. Wood elves work with the forest they try not to damage the forest like other races do. Wood elves are extremely agile, there main method of attack is the bow, but they will use hand-to-hand fighting. Wood elves like to use stealth as there are fewer of them compared to the High Elves and Dark Elves. Wood Elves prefer not to wear armour this allows them to move more rapidly through forests though they tend to wear fabrics in greens and browns to match in with there surroundings, this helps them to move around unnoticed.


Im guessing Orlando was a wood elf. :?

imo: dark elf fits best.

why? remember the neutral values of each terit will balance the gameplay. so yeah aoria will have a power rune next to it but that power rune will have a bigger neutral army on it.

really? i won many times from fygie. it's main advantage is the openness. it has so many alternatives to expand. it is the only one that has visibility to both entrances to the sanctuary, it has ports on 2 oceans and can reach the third easily via the ice cap. very open.

Neo glow = Bright/strong glow. Half of your boarders look like some fluresent light bulb that you would see outside some brothel in a red light district or night club.

    1.Aeoria
    2.Mua

however dark elves rock golems and pit fiends can be changed. i'll see how.

A random newbie's two cents:

The Elven lands' dark green jars with the neon yellow for the borders which also jars with the blue for the glows of the runes. Similarly, with the rock golems, you have this grey, stonelike texture with these weird fluorescent green lines running across it. Things get lost among this swirling medley of bright glowing things - the runes of both are easy to miss, the river is missable, even the villages and castles are missable.

The dwarves, also, are quite strange. The random orange dashes don't look much like anything, the different shades of green seem to float on top of each other (as does the orange) for no real reason, and, tbh, I don't associate green and orange with dwarves.

The purple, black and white is OK for the sanctuary, but the purple across the ocean is fairly ugly and not really very smooth. Maybe sort of evil tendrils instead? I'm not sure what the sanctuary is meant to look like either, maybe make it more bonelike? The borders too?

These continents also clash with the other three: the human lands, the orcs and the ice golems: these are more sedate, more relaxed, with less going on. The random green specklings on the orcs don't look quite right, but the ice is very pretty and the green specks work well there as well as on the human continent. The water is also very nice, as are the little boats - it occurs to me, though, that if you're going for a chaotic battle feel, maybe some of the boats should be attacking each other? Maybe distinct styles for each species' boat? Actually, that stands for many of the buildings, too: you could make each species look distinct by making their buildings more unique, giving them more of a "dwarf" feel, or an "orc" feel.

Other than that, I'm sure it's awesome :D

the borders and names colours issues you mentioned should be solved int eh image i'll post bellow.

the purple across the ocean is actually blood. as for the tentacles you mentioned i was just thinking the same when i did the borders in version 2. hope you like it.

the fighting boats idea is very nice, although i'm not sure how much detail i can put there. we're talking about a few pixels. so drawing people fighting and canons shooting is impossible.
