Orc (12 RP)
   
The Orcs are a race of hulking, tribal beastmen who hail from the northern continent of Rhazowa, where their empire resides. They also have a substantial military presence in the Middle Lands, namely the continent of Quon, where they have a small outpost called Ghelsba in the Ronfaure region, and a large stronghold known as Davoi in the Norvallen region. These settlements are very close to the Elvaan Kingdom of San d'Oria, and are lead by Overlord Bakgodek.
Orcs are born with an innate lust for battle, which is put to good use, living in a society that requires all to participate in military training. Strength is valued above all in the orcish society, with the strongest among them rising in influence and power. All Orcs--male and female--are required to participate in years of military training, and even their social structure is based on military ranks.
Most Orcs choose to follow the physical side of combat, becoming warriors, monks, dragoons, even rangers, while others choose to incorporate magic into their tactics, becoming dark knights or paladins. Others still choose to forgo physical combat completely and become black mages. These Orcs are often known as Shamans and are presumably held in very high regard.
Orcish technology is crude at best, constructing their buildings and siege weaponry from wood and animal hides, and fashioning armor from leather, wood and bone. They are occasionally seen wielding metal weaponry, though these could be stolen.

Sahagin (15 RP)
   
These amphibious beastmen reside mainly on the western coastline of the island of Elshimo. They spend the majority of their time practicing primitive fishing techniques to provide an ample supply of shellfish for their survival. Other than to protect their territory, the Sahagin rarely interact with other races. Before the Great War, they adamantly refused invitations by the Shadow Lord to join the beastmen armies--until he convinced them that the steamships of Bastok would eventually destroy their environment. During the war, the Sahagin used their sea maneuvering abilities to attack even the strongest ships in the allied fleet, and were feared by all seafaring soldiers. After the flames of battle had been extinguished, the Sahagin cut off all ties to the other beastmen and returned to their secluded way of life. Apart from limited trading with Norg--they often trade shellfish for metal trinkets salvaged by the pirates--the Sahagin have little contact with the outside world.
Finally, many of the Sahagin worship the elements, and have made deities out of sea serpents and oddly shaped stones within their grotto. However, within their ranks are some who follow the teachings of the Goddess Altana.

I absolutely love this idea. I cannot wait to see new beastmen that you are building. My group is absolutely loving the fact that not everyone is human looking and are beastmen. If only Square Enix did the same thing. I'm looking forward to the other beastmen when you put them on here!!!

They are mostly all finished I just like to give it some time before I upload the next three beastmen. Unless the boss man of the site wants them all immediately then I will upload them all at once but for now I'm just submitting a few at a time.
