Herenkoa. Home to many, humans and creatures. 
Though the tribe we look at today are said to not exist. 
Buried in the south somewhere is the dead city of Orcus. Founded when the first humans crossed the desert to find new places to expand into, one tribe headed north and one went south. The tribes that are in the North are the Elven. Taking nature as their guide and building within the forests and the plains. 
This is not about them though. This is about what happened in the south, deep below the mountains across the plains and between the forked rivers. Somewhere in this region is the city of Orcus. 

The City is known as the dead city since the population vanished. No one knows where, but anyone attempting to settle either runs in fear of the monsters that seem to hide in the shadows.

The truth though is far darker. Knowing the war was coming where every tribe would take up arms against each other the Orcus population wanted non of this and came to an idea. They decimated the city, well that would be how it looked from the outside, but the reality was far more complicated. 
To begin with they started sending out scouting parties dressed as monsters, using masks hammered from iron and armour plates to make them look larger, fashioned tusks and pointed ears to hide their human form. 
This would send scouts from other cities and even traders running back to their own villages with tales of monsters surrounding the dead city. 
Occasionally one of the villagers would be chosen to leave, to carry stories to other tribes, declaring they had escaped from the city of the dead. An wanted to return to battle with their brothers.
This scared the other villages more, and more and they stayed away.
With each whisper and mention Orcus became the City of the Dead, where when great warriors fall there spirits went to, to live out their days held in by monsters never allowed to leave, to feast for ever in the great halls and sing songs of their battles. 

War is coming to Orcus though, you can't hide forever. An the time to defend this mythical city will soon be upon them. An the Orcans will have to raise their masks once more and become the forgotten warriors and monsters of old to defend this place from the giants rising in the lands of ice below them, the Taurus raging above them and the Wares looking for new places to hunt.

I've been a bit lapse.

Been writing Herenkoa back ground, doing more research into things to make it work.
This has kept me rather busy, wanted to get my mythology right and wanted to adapt it, plus wanted to collect more information about other cultures and countries in order to give a wider and broader scope to what I was doing with it.
So I started studying. This has taken up a lot of my time. An given me an even richer and wider back ground for the races. Plus adding more races to the world.

District. It's done. Just got to write the fluff and do the artwork, can't keep adding to it as it just ends up with a massive ball of never going to be finished game. Still got to sculpt models and my head needs to get back into that first and my head hasn't exactly been here of late lots of things going on in the real world I didn't need or want.

Final Earth...... Will come back to this one day. It's rather deep.

So presently putting up new things to the portfolio website, fixing the bugs that no one told me where there and sorting out a few small bits and pieces, hoping to have it all done by the end of the week, though so far today all I have done is sat over a scanner uploading concept and artwork to my laptop in order to put it on the web site.

So thats where we are as I am typing this.

More will follow just not sure when......
