April 18 Newsletter - Dragon Empires -

Codemasters released their newsletter today with the following announcements:

Introducing the Shadow and Dragonblood races!
When Fortitude was first populated by the humans none but they and the monsters walked the lands and it was only the humans could be said to have mastery of it. This was the case for many hundreds of years and so it would have continued had it not been for the emergence of two new peoples, the Shadow and the Dragonblood. Quite how they came to be no one is exactly sure, all that is known is that around 500 years ago people started to notice changes amongst some humans and within two generations whole new races were created.

The Shadow
It is generally accepted that the Shadow were the first to emerge of the two new races. How and why is the subject of much debate, except amongst the Shadow themselves who are tight lipped on the matter. Physically, they are smaller than humans or the Dragonblood, not as strong as the fierce Dragonblood and not as magically inclined as humans. The ash color of their skin and wild tattoos mark them out as different, a difference not everyone can accept. They are widely mistrusted in many empires as their natural inclination sees them excel at acts of subterfuge and deception.

The Dragonblood
The Dragonblood are a fierce race who claim to be the descendents of a great warrior who defeated enemies of the 5th Empire and were rewarded with the infusion of blood from their dragon. Whether this story is true or not, what is important is that you don't debate this matter in front of the Dragonblood! They stand out as they are generally larger than humans and undoubtedly stronger. Their skin is green, which they attribute to their supposed parentage and they have tended to be enemies of the Shadow for reasons few are party to.

Why have we added races?
In thinking about our world we decided the game would be more interesting and exciting the more options players had. We felt that while we liked our human characters and character options there just wasn't going to be enough to distinguish players from each other. Also, we wanted to strongly distinguish the types of characters people would play by the look of their character. For these reasons we decided to add our two new races. More races also give us more storytelling options and more chances for players to roleplay. We look forward to bringing you the myths and beliefs of our two new races.
