Okay, some informations! OOoOoOooooOOoOooOoooooooOOOOOOoooooo....oooo....o.....
Um, yeah.....moving on.
The World: The world is largely uninhabited for it's vast size That said, the population isn't that small either. There are vast sweeps of beautiful landscape untouched by mortal hands of any race, though there are a number of vast cities as well with small settlements and villages dotting the land. Your average asianic-themed setting has good examples for this; The Forbidden City(Jackie Chan and Jet Li), Exhaulted, Inu-Yasha and so on.
Cities vary from race to race, each representing its people well. Each race tends to have a few major capital cities, then many small villages and smaller settlements dotting their lands.
The Races: This is the tricky part, because races have a lot more to them than simple descriptions. They have culture and traditions, more than just their mechanical abilities you'll need to know about for playing one, but I'll try to give a basic rundown for now, and if this takes off, I'll make a setting thread eventually.
The Blaedier: Whoever played in my Soul Frequency game will notice a similarity in this race, but in truth, that game was based on this race, not the other way around. In the ancient tongue "Blaedier" means "Those of the Sword". Their racial ability is their Soul Weapon, a weapon created of their crystallized soul that they can summon and dismiss at will. They obtain this weapon in a ritual ceremony known as the 'Soul Forging' when they come of age.
Blaedier are known as skilled warriors, and even despite their soul weapons, are also known for their craftsmanship of weapons. They function in a caste system of Guardian, Knight, Tyrant and Lord, based on psychology of the individuals who fall naturally into one of those castes. I'll get into castes more if I make the setting thread.
They appear human with dusky mid-toned dark skin with light colored hair. They sport a gem on their chest with eyes of the same color of that gem. The gems are significant, housing the souls of the Blaedier and are a trophy among other races, though displaying one before a Blaedier is reason enough to call a duel of honor.
The Lunari: Also known as the Beastmen or Wildlings. In their natural state, they appear human with pale skin with a few obvious beastial traits, namely their eyes and ears and tail. Lunari live in various tribes based on the wild animal families (Not gonna list them all, the important thing to know is the Myth Tribe are the overall leaders of the Lunari and preside over a council of representatives of the other tribes)
Their racial ability is taking on a hybrid and full form of their tribal totem. Of course, each tribe has a number of animal types within it (Felines for example have Lions, Tigers, Leopards, etc, large hunter cats), but obviously each tribe has it's sort of specialty, again which I won't exactly get into right now.
As mentioned, they are known as Wildlings with good cause. They live amongst nature and tend to have a more 'savage' leaning towards them. Not that they are vicious or unintelligent, more like the native americans when Europe found the Americas(Which the race is actually based on)
That's all for right now. I picked up Mugen Souls today and wanna try it some before bed time O-o
There are a few more races; The Techen(A race of people who have mastered the art of magi-technology and have turned themselves into a sort of race of magical cyborgs), The Wingly(A race of, shock, winged people, but the wings are more than the simple feathered or leathery things you may be thinking,but each set of wings is as unique as a Blaedier's Soul Weapon), and of course humans.
