draft nymph

Postby Bas W » Sun Nov 25, 2012 9:00 pm

Na een hoop gepraat te hebben over de nymph heb ik de lore zoals die nu op de wiki staat een beetje aangepast. Graag jullie mening!

Common

Nature oriented, magically potent (although most magical nymph either live in Asgard or are born near the Asgardian border ) and very active in seduction and love
These characteristics are found in almost all nymphs, seduction is often used as means to an end, and used to remove unwanted individuals from the forests. Sometimes a nymph encounters someone whom she genuinely falls in love with. This is not very common but it happens occasionally.

Physical
Nymhps have the same average height as humans and always look better then average. Some have slightly pointed ears and most have a single sharpened canine, usually the left for male and right for females.

Characteristics

Nymphs are very territorial and considered of neutral alignment and chaotic in nature. Each settlement has its own laws and punishes violators as they see fit at that particular moment.
It is said that nymph are only able to reproduce with someone they love. Therefore nymphs are very driven to search ad find love. Most nymphs will find love in their own settlement or in the ones surrounding it. However there are nymphs who do not find their loved one in any nearby settlement. Driven by their nature these nymph will journey out of their forests to find love in other places.
This journey is referred to as the great walk. Lore keepers who study these nymphs have found that most nymph travel a certain route that leads to other known settlements in Midgard these routes have not been mapped yet. Nymphs who walk the great walk often travel in groups and meet up with other travelling groups to ensure safety and meet potential love partners.
Nymhs are the only race that can succesfully mate with other races without having the risk of creating hybrids. Children that come forth from these interracial relationships are always full blood nymphs.

Habitat

The Nymph race was originally found in the Undain woods but has since they have made contact with other races spread across Heimr. Most nymph are still found in the deeper regions of the Undain woods where they have build various settlements. These nymph communities live in harmony with the nature around them. This is essential for their survival because a healthy dense forest means food and security. Often slemmering seek refuge in areas near nymph settlements.
These creatures mainly reside deep in the woods in safe havens where they live together in relatively large groups. Whenever someone endangers or soils the forests, the forest nymphs will take appropriate actions to ensure such a mistake is not made twice. These punishments vary from relative harmless pranks to considerable more lethal bursts of rage.
Nymphs are known to be experts in ambushes since they often know their habitats way better than any intruder.

Average age

The average lifespan of a nymph is about 120 years. Nymphs who do not find love tend to live half this age.

Ik reageer hier graag uitgebreid donderdag op tijdens de lore avond. Ik ben erg positief over deze lore.
When you see the word "realism" in any Heimr discussion, please substitute "internal consistency of imagined world such that it abides by its own laws both implied and explicit, including laws such as 'elves exist' and 'magic works.'"

Physical appearance


Nymhps have the same average height as humans and always look better then average. Some have slightly pointed ears and most have a single sharpened canine, usually the left for male and right for females.

Biological oddities


After having settled down with a partner. Nymphs tend to be highly defensive about their chosen nest in defence of their children or potential children. Nymphs cannot reproduce unless they are in love. Therefore nymphs are very biologically driven to search and find love. Most nymphs will find love in their own settlement or in the ones surrounding it. However there are nymphs who do not find their loved one in any nearby settlement. Driven by their nature these nymph will journey out of their settlements to find love in other places. This journey is referred to as "The great walk".
Female Nymhs are the only race that can successfully mate with other races without having the risk of creating hybrids. Children that come forth from these interracial relationships are always full blood nymphs. Male Nymphs can't fertilize females from other races.
There are currently more female nymphs than males nymphs. Many theories have been conceived about this. Most scholars believe that the male nymph is slowly becoming biologically obsolete.

Diet


Nymphs have a fairly standard omnivore diet. However Nymphs are more than other races biologically inclined to eat substances that heighten their pheromone output.

Euh, waarom zijn er in de eerste plek mannelijke nymphs ontstaan dan? Is er een reden dat mannelijke nymps geen vrouwen kunnen bevruchten?

Male Nymphs can't fertilize females from other races.
