I'm not quite ready to replace the existing Bestiary thread so I thought I'd make a new one for the transitional period.

This is an attempt to redefine our current mish-mash of races and creatures in IGNOLand into something more organized in the vein of the Element system. I'm currently working on a visual guide in the style of medieval bestiaries but I can't make any guarantees as to when (if at all, given my track record for ambitious projects) this will be completed, so I figured a textual guide of the new concepts was at least in order.

THE BASICS

One of the core aspects of our community is the 'be anything you want' mentality. As IGNOLand is a mysterious land full of all sorts of creatures, the only restriction on what your character can be (aside from the obvious 'don't be a snowflake with game-breaking powers') is the power of your own imagination.

HOWEVER, we naturally have a decent selection of existing races available to choose from already, with their own lore, attributes and general place in our world pre-established. The goal of this page is to provide the basic information on those races to give our users an idea of the sorts of creatures that exist in IGNOLand - not to force them to choose from this pool and discourage them from coming up with their own!!

Note: some monsters and other such races are also included for lore purposes, but are not advised to be used as playable characters. Typically the descriptions of these races will be a dead giveaway as to whether or not they're fit for a player character, but do not be afraid to PM a staff member if unsure.

RACIAL UMBRELLAS

While new races can and will always be coming into the fold, we've defined a set of 'categories' under which most of them should realistically be able to fall. Additional categories may be added as needed, but for the time being this should pretty much cover most of what you could reasonably come up with.

Each Umbrella will be given a spoiler tag under which example races (either those our members have previously used, or just ones we've talked about or sound cool) will be listed.
