Qalpha has asked for some more info on the enigmatic Children of the Moon so I thought I would write a brief overview!
The Children of the Moon are one of the original races of Aeroth and predate both the humans and the dwarves.
The children were a nomadic people, traversing much of the savage world of Aeroth in Sky Arcs, mighty floating vessels with a core of moonstone. Originally a peaceful race of creatures, the Children were intrinsically linked with Aeroths moon, it gave them near immortality and was the source of their magic. Ironically it was this that first attracted the attention of the young race known as the Elves.
With single minded determination the Elves sought to conquer the Lunar Children and enslave them to learn their secrets. For a race unused to violence, the Children were decimated. Hundreds died as their settlements were raised to the ground, sky arks were boarded by dragon riders and burned, falling from the sky like fiery meteors. Many more died in the experiments of the Elven mages.
It was during one of these experiments when something unexpected to happen. Jamuga Silvermane, one of the few remaining Lunar Shaman was exposed to the full power of a cabal of sorcerers magic during the full moon. The rite Lunar power surged into the unfortunate shaman giving him near superhuman strength but twisting his body into that of a huge silver wolf. Driven mad by the change Silvermane tore the shocked Elves apart. Across Aeroth, similar changes afflicted the Children of the Moon and the land rang with the howl of the wolf.
Dawn saw the few remaining children bloodied but free. Regaining their senses but retaining their monstrous form, the Children were horrified by what they had done and realising that they could never return to their previous existence, they boarded their sky arks, and departed Aeroth for ever.
The Children of the Moon did not in fact leave Aeroth entirely. They relocated to the far north, further even than the barbarian settlements, to the endless tundra and frozen pine forests. Here they sought to rebuild their lives but the call of the moon was too strong and over the passing eons they have lost much of their humanity becoming more beast than man. Now they roam the lands in packs in an eternal hunt, embracing their new feral nature.
The average Lunar Child stands roughly seven feet tall, and is a cross between a wolf and a man. Barrel chested and powerful the individual Children are capable of moving on two legs or four and have endless stamina enabling them to track and chase down prey in a hunt that can last days.
The bond between the pack is unbelievably strong and their spoken language has all but died out, replaced by a form of unconscious telepathy. This allows the pack to communicate, even over a distance.
Despite their changed shape, the Lunar Children retain their immortality and can take a huge amount of punishment in battle, often regenerating wounds almost as quickly as they have been taken.
Hopefully that will give folks a bit of an overview of the Children of the Moon! I will expand on it when I get chance and the opportunity to sculpt some gigantic wolfmen is rather tempting!
All the best!
