New Champions Enter the Fight
As storms form on the horizon and a calm settles before the next great conflict, two peoples of Montel, formerly removed from the vicious feuds and greed, join the fray. For Isenhorst, the Upyrian vampires set their vengeful gaze on the wrongs of the past. In Erlandir, the naturalist Aurek can recluse themselves no longer, as the war threatens the fragile environments they call home.
Upyrian Vampires – Bloody Vengeance
The Upyrians were not always vampires. In days long forgotten in the vicious wars of Montel, the people who came to be known as Upyrians were once mere Yutonian villagers, living among the western stretches of Erlandir near the Ellescadian Mountains. When the first explorations by the steam-master Dwarves crossed the ranges, this modest tribe became enamored with technology. To punish their heresy, the high priest of the Kosh cast down a blood curse upon the people, along with their young prince, Delfara, and the Upyrians were born.
After years in exile, the blood-sucking accursed followed their pale prince to the deserts of Upyria in the south of Isenhorst. Far from the looking eyes of other powers, the Upyrian vampires dabbled in tabooed magic, practicing unspeakable arts and harboring a cold resentment. Waiting. Watching.

Aurek Brutes – Stalwarts of Nature
The Aurek people developed just a hair beyond the animal companions amongst which they lived. Despite their simplicity, the Aurek developed a rich culture, with a reverence for nature and a distinct initiation rite. The Aurek had to be strong, and each young person – man or woman – was required to undergo a test of fortitude, injecting Black Gold into their bodies and delving into the jungle. Those who survived joined the tribe.
The Aurek had avoided the conflicts of the world for years. Despite close ties to the mighty Kosh, when the drums of war sounded, the Aurek chose to turn inward and forsake their natural brethren. It was only with the ferocity of the fighting and the destruction it reaped that this changed. Now, the Aurek stand with their natural brothers to defend their home.

Prepare for a Brawl
The Brawler style of fighting was developed in the wake of the second great Montel war. As troops on both sides found themselves aimless and in need of work, a number joined the mercenary “Source”. Fusing technology with elemental magic, they unleashed the power of thunder and fire in conjunction with melee for impressive effectiveness in battle.
