Tides of the Forgotten and Lost
Monster races most effected
all draconic races: the dragons were the saviors of the monster races the 5 dragons a gold, black, blue, copper, and bronze all used their anceint wyrm powers to create barriers around the monsters of they summoned help from faerun and ebberron to help construct the city ships the monsters have lived on for centuries. all draconic races are now held in a higher standard usually in the higher society of the cities, positions of power, and diplomats to the sea creatures.
goblins: the goblins helped construct the the giant ships with artificiary magic and they’re ability to build fast even for they’re mean nature they are still respected for creating the ships the monsters live on though they still prefer to live deep in the dark corners of the ships away from the sunlight. many goblins don’t seek places of power and prefer to tend to the ship and the elementals bound to the it, making sure everything is running correction and no holes in the ship. it is believed the dragons gave the goblins a job to do generation by generation to safe guard the ships from destruction by any means.
warforged: the warforged came to this world when house cannith on ebberron sent one of the creation forges that was still working after the war (some believe by the threat of revealing the truth about canniths creation forges still working by the dragons to ebberron) warforged continued building the ships while the goblins slept and protected the monsters from attacks by the Black Suits guild the dragons damaged the creation forge after the ships were done making sure each ship had enough warforged to keep it running, most warforged after 2000 years have integrated into the monster community as equals.
lycanthropes: most lycanthrops went with the monsters as the Black Suits revealed they’re true forms in the cities with a large scale spell. after many years most elected to live on the farming islands for the cities not liking the hustle and bustle of the city life. some of the more evil ones hid in the barbarian lands as pirates and slavers to follow some of their evil ambitions.
lizardfolk and gnolls: when the lizardfolk and the gnolls came to the ship they had only a few tribes left nearly extinct they promised to forsake they’re evil gods to live on the ships as their gods turned blind eye to they’re races being slaughtered. the lizard folk now act as the sea scouts and protectors of the ships from underneath while the gnolls protect the cities from aboard the ships. most are guards and surprisingly now lawful aligned.
changlings and shifters: came over with the warforged to escape the persecution of they’re world seeing they can form a stronger society with the monsters, but because of the spells on the black suits used to see the lycanthropes it also forced them to shift or reveal they’re true form. some of the shifters went with the lycans seeing them as kin and the changling now worked a shadow network with the ships to spy on enemies.
kenku: because they’re great ability to aid others they now serve mostly on trade ships or pirate hunting ships using they’re skills and ability to help control the ships.
anthropomorphic: they were all once animals but the rend of magic through the world when the world was sundered so many lives lost so many souls left wandering it is said that the gods felt pity for the many millions lost and never to taste life they used they’re magic to imbue these wandering souls into the animals reshaping they’re bodies into a humanoid form. they thought the new creatures would be a mediator between the humans and monsters but instead were hunted down just like the monsters during the era of extinction.
raptoran: once elven blessed by the power of flight by an elemental god of air the elves turned on them even though they lived peacefully for hundreds of years seeing they’re love for a elemental god a sign they have forsaken they’re elven blood seeing them now as monsters they hunted them down till the ships were made and the raptorans sadden to leave they’re elven brothers. now they serve as the protectors of the cities from the highest points on the ships as well as being nocturnal they cover most guard shifts at night.
catfolk: always being the tribal and traveling type creatures they fled to the dragons ships first never holding much care over owning land they had no problem with leaving the old savannahs behind taking on the anthropomorphic as kin to teach them how to live in they’re new bodies. they mostly travel by ships not caring for the city or live on farming islands finding them peaceful.
goliaths: they lived in the now barbarian lands and ice-wastelands for living in high mountainous areas they were mostly untouched by the sundering. since the barbarian lands were far from the last continents they’re were also unaffected by the era of extinction. though after years of chaos they were enslaved by the tribal human lands forced into labor. some escaped to live on the city ships but many are still bred and held in captivity to be used as slaves by the barbarians.
killoren and fey races: hunted just as well as the monsters when they fled it was they’re idea to use or create small islands to grow crops on for the cities food stocks. they all mostly live on the islands now or the higher level ones create islands or even have underwater gardens.
all monsters live on the ships, in the ocean, or on the islands but these races are the ones that play bigger roles
