The information on this page is regarded as "official" and is compliant with the official Elysium events which are hosted by members of Staff. Players may choose to use as much or as little of this lore as they like. There is no requirement for players to follow the lore during a personal RP.
Due to various reasons, some races are locked on Elysium, meaning that only staff can play them. Usually this is a result of Official Lore, because the race is associated with an Event or is considered too overpowered for players to role-play. On this page you will find a list of races that are not given to players as a custom race. While you are free to use the races in private role-plays, it is considered bad etiquette to use them in Public Locations.
Dragons are the source of all magic on Elysium. If a Mage or other race slays a dragon they are able to receive some of its power. For this reason, Dragons are considered too powerful for normal players to play, but an Ancient Dragon emerges once a month in an Event battle.
Note: Dragon hybrid races are allowed (except "Hybrid" cannot be used). See Dragons for more information.
In the Worlds Collide Events series, Wraiths are described as ordinary people who have been taken by the Darkness after their death. He uses these Wraiths as his army and the Champions of Elysium frequently battle against them in Events. Because they have event-specific Lore, the race is not currently given out to players.
Dopplers and Shapeshifters Edit
A Doppler is a form of Shapeshifter that can transform into any other person upon touching them, receiving a copy of their powers and abilities. Dopplers were used in the Worlds Collide Event series and every last one was slaughtered. As a result, this race is not given out except to staff or staff-nominated players during Events, because it is considered extinct. Ordinary Shapeshifters are usually not given as a race name because the ability of a Shapeshifter is considered too overpowered. However, as Neko and Werewolves are essentially Shapeshifters with a limited option on what they can turn into, races with similar abilities - limited to a single form or to a specific range of forms only - may be permitted if requested and the staff are satisfied a player will not use the Shapeshifter race to power-game or god-mode.
Gods and Immortals Edit
For obvious reasons, Gods are considered too overpowered for ordinary players to have as a personal race and character. However, it is possible to role-play as either a God or an Immortal character in private, so long as the other players in the group are comfortable with it.
Note: Players can also be worshipped if the worshippers are in agreement with it, but this does not make them a God.
