For nearly a thousand years the world of Kator has avoided the
scourge of war by settling disputes on sacred battlegrounds.
WarMages, magic wielding leaders of the different factions of
Kator, engage in ritualistic battles to hone their skills, increase
their prestige, and resolve differences before they become
But now, strange winds stir. WarMages are being attacked
outside of the sacred battlegrounds by enemies not seen since the
Great War. It is time for WarMages to learn as much as they can
about the strengths and weaknesses of each other, as well as the
recently reappearing evil and corrupted forces. Read the gathered
information to increase your chances of survival and victory in the
Today we shall take a look at the various races found within
WarMage Battlegrounds, provide you with a brief bio and
reveal their strengths and weaknesses. This information came
at a great cost, and as a WarMage, this information could
mean victory or spell defeat!
HUMANS - The most populous of the races
of Kator, Humans live in nearly every environment and fight over
them as well. While Humankind may sometimes relish in war against
those who cross their path, they are also one of the most
industrious and hard-working race. Humans build to conquer and
conquer to build and even destroy that which they have built in
order to build it again.
Unlike the other races, Humanity has no favor or disfavor for
any particular element. They are a jack-of-all-trades, a master of
the elements and fight hard for every inch of ground they are
forced to defend or choose to take.
Elemental Affinity: Humans are general specialists
in all types of magic, and have no specific vulnerabilities.
DRAGONKIN - The Dragonkin are an enigmatic race
that claims to be descended from mighty dragons themselves.
Regardless of the truth of the matter, the Dragonkin are powerful,
fierce f ighters who wield deadly magic and possess a
strength that few can match.
They make their homes in great caverns beneath the towering
peaks of the Mountains of Flame. It is in atop these mountains and
in the deep spaces beneath the earth that the Dragonkin wage war
with the races of Kator.
Elemental Affinity: Dragonkin are specialists in
Life, Death and Fire magic, but are vulnerable to Air, Earth and
LYCAN - Fast and nimble, but often misunderstood
and rarely trusted, the Lycan are a deeply philosophical and
mystical race who reside in the Sullen Marsh at the mouth of the
Banotrys River. There they live in tight-knit clans, each vying for
control over dry land and resources. Because of their clan social
structure, Lycan WarMages and armies are rare, but they often hire
themselves out as mercenaries to other WarMages.
Lycan armies have been known to withdraw from a battle if the
portents are unfavorable, even going so far as to surrender in
order to avoid a terrible fate.
Elemental Affinity: The Lycan are specialists of
Death magic and Piercing attacks, but are vulnerable to Life and
SINTA - The Sinta, or Great Cat, are a collection
of species that are collectively grouped together for similar
feline-like features. All species of Sinta form a federation of
people who roam the vast Plain of Talsinta (Plain of the Great
Only a few Sinta-controled cities remain in the most remote
lands of the Talsinta, but they are well-protected and guarded.
Even the battlegrounds of the Talsinta lay far from the settled
regions, but closer to the ruins where many say ancient artifacts
and items of power still remain buried to this day.
Elemental Affinity: The Sinta are specialists in
Death and Air magic as well as Slashing attacks, but are vulnerable
to Fire and Earth magic.
ELVES - An ancient people who have a deep love of
nature and of the wildlands of the world, Elves are rarely found in
the great cities of the land preferring instead to spend their days
among the trees of the Forest of Anthrok. There, amongst towering
giants many hundreds of feet tall, the Elves study the essence of
nature, compose great songs about the beauty of the wilds, and
fiercely protect the borders of their forest kingdoms.
Many a WarMage has fallen prey to the quick and nimble Elven
armies who attack from afar with arrows and deadly spells.
Elemental Affinity: Elves are specialists in Life
and Air magic as well as ranged attacks, but are vulnerable to
MINOTAUR - The Minotaur are a proud race often
misunderstood by outsiders and called violent or irrational. Yet,
as a people they simply prefer to solve their differences through
martial combat; the victor's argument is proven to be correct. They
are, in fact, a brilliant and ancient people who are not barbaric,
but were once the greatest builders of the known world.
Tragically, their vast empire has fallen to ruin with the
emergence of the WarMages. Now, the remnants of that Empire are
scattered and its peoples counted among more than a dozen kingdoms.
The great stonework and sculptures of the Empire have been re-used
to build newer monuments or toppled and buried by the ages.
Elemental Affinity: The Minotaur are specialists
in Earth, Life and Fire magic, but are vulnerable to Air magic.
GIANTS - Towering above the other races of Kator,
the Giants are a power to be reckoned with and a force any WarMage
would gladly have on his side. Giants may be slow moving, but they
make up for their lack of speed with powerful, deadly attacks and a
resilience that is unmatched on the battleground.
Beyond the Mountains of Flame, on the southern edges of the
Shivering Plains the Giants make their homes. There amongst
densely, forested hills and steep, often perilous valleys, the
Giants build massive fortresses and fight to protect that which
they claim Thorok himself gifted to them ages ago along with his
Elemental Affinity: Giants are specialists in
Water magic and Crushing attacks, but are vulnerable to all magic
DWARVES - A people of strong convictions, quick to
anger, yet just as quick to forgive, Dwarves tend to evoke powerful
emotions in both their allies and their enemies.
On the battleground they are a fierce and powerful ally, but a
dangerous and deadly enemy. There is an old saying, "a wise man
keeps one eye on the ground and one eye on the sky when there are
Dwarves about." Many proud WarMages have failed to heed the adage
and have tasted bitter defeat at the hands of Dwarven steel and
Elemental Affinity: Dwarves are specialists in
Earth and Life magic, but are vulnerable to Water magic.
FAERY - For centuries the Faery were thought to
have vanished from the face of Kator. It was said that they were
weak, that the Elves protected them for too long, and that Razzus
or even Satarus himself chose to take them away. These rumors could
not be further from the truth!
The Faery live hidden away in the most remote regions of
Anthrok, where they build cities high above the ground in the
branches of the great trees and contemplate the nature of Life,
Death and of the world itself.
Once engaged in battle the Faery are merciless, fast moving, and
armed with powerful spells of Air, Life and Death.
Elemental Affinity: The Faery are specialists in
Air, Life and Death magic, but are vulnerable to Fire magic and
nearly all physical attacks.
