Hokay as promised more of a background
1st an apology I can't use LJ cut on this so sorry I'll keep it as brief as I can.
The known world has been at war fo rcenturies more or less .
Initially the conflict was between Elves and humans (both sides claim a different cause neither side trusts the other enough for a peace to hold)
Later Dwarves became embroiled in their own civil war and now have factions supporting both sides.
Gnomes have become more aggressive as Orcs and their ilk have forced them against a mountain range resulting in incursions in dwarf and human lands
Orcs and Goblins have over ran one of the major dwarven strongholds killing the king and his family leaving no clear line of succession but losing thier own king in the process and degenerating into their own clan wars.
Sea trade is almost at a standstill for none elven races as Sea Elves attack all but the best defended shipping
Land trade is dominated by the Lizard men whao are neuteral parties in the wars.
Okay that's the Background
The main areas I need help with are
The Stump plain
Early on in the war before the wizard wall came into being. Humans attempted to destroy elf colonies by destroying the woodlands they lived in.
This met with some success until as a retaliatory move elves started poisoning town water supplies.
The result is vast plains that include millions of stumps of trees and abandoned elven and human cities.
The area is now mostly occupied by wandering tribes that meet everyso often to exchange members to prevent in breeding.
The Wizard Wall.
The site of the largest magical battle this devestated the Isthmus it was thought over
Now the land is not solid, creatures boil into and out of exoistance areas of permenanant spell effects exist.
And in the centre something monstorous is slowly emerging.
At either end there is a wall manned by the best and brightest of human and elvish mages (1 race at each end no mixing) which saps much of the battle magic from each race.
I need for at least 1 end the camp that supports the wall and the threats within the explored area of the chaos effect
At border points there are mixes of cities where humans are ruled by elves and vice versa.
I need an apartite style Elven ruled city.
You know the sort of thing humans cannot own land, human only wells, humans must step into the gutter if an elf passes etc.
I'll leave it at that for now as anyone not intrested in helping won't have too much to scroll past but there's a load more ideas I'd like to get developed up that I simply don't have time to.
Thanks in advance
