Men:Southmount(Mountains) "Seen by many as the capitol of Teria, Southmont is home to the important cities of Dagbor and Doredale. Dagbor itself lies on a flat plain ringed by mountains, but far more typically, cities in this region are built in the mountains themselves, taking advantage of the Alpine terrain to provide natural defenses. Southmont players have by far the best strongholds. An abundance of stone mines allows top-notch fortifications to be built and fully upgraded. By raising large herds of sheep, and by also exploiting their numerous gold mines, players are able to turtle-up, quest, research and prosper."

-Swordsman, Foot Knight +10% price" -Crossbowman +10% damage" -Cavalier and Mounted Knight +25% price"
Men:Rollingplains(Plains) Rollingplain is one of the older provinces of Teria. Denwall stronghold dominates this flat, meadow-rich, wide-open landscape. Lords of Dagbor have always recognized the strategic value of Rollingplain, as it serves as a buffer between Southmont, the Realm of the Elves, and the great open borders of the Orcish Realm in the east. In Rollingplain, players will have to rely on a gold-based economy. Cavalry and infantry will be the backbone of their army. Lack of ranged units will create some difficulty with sieges, but Rollingplain riders will top any cavalry of the world. In the wide open plains trees are scarce, so strongholds will tend to be built from stone, making a dramatic silhouette on the horizon line.

Men The Wold(Forest) According to ancient Terian lore, the first human settlements were built in the Wold, and Thorndale was the first great stronghold to arise in the Older Times. In later years, however, the Dagbors of Southmont became the pre-eminent lords of Teria. In The Wold, players will be able to build a strong economy by harvesting wood. Here, in the protective cover of the ancient coastal forest, ranged units develop quickly, getting significant combat bonuses. And the Wold player is the best in Teria when it comes to offensive siege warfare.

"Taltos is a rugged mountainous region in the southeast part of Nhobru, right on the Orc Frontier. The rigorous life in these alpine lands has been very suitable to the High Elves who dwell here. They focus more on the traditional arts of civilization and although they do have powerful magical skills, they also favour balancing them with other arts of the intellect, pursuing Alchemy and forces of Magic Since it is the homeland of High Elves, the major stronghold of Gelmeerim is where the elven governing authority, the High Council of Archons, convenes. Furthermore, in Gelmeerim the High Elves have developed the combat arts to an advanced state, and any players settling in Taltos will find they can train the most powerful of the Elven Warriors."

"This region neighbors the great woodlands of Bol Fores'l, where the Elven Race first originated. As Wood Elves migrated out of Bol Fores'l, the swamps of Erthee L'Bala seemed like an easily defended haven where they could settle. Here, too, they knew they would be free to pursue their understanding of nature lore and nature magic, and so they built their major city of Illas Tortra here. Preferring natural resource gathering and living on what nature gives, the Elven Players of Erthee L'Bala become true defenders of all things natural. While they do not hunt or chop trees, nature provides for them in other ways. Swamp terrain gives huge defensive advantage on the home territory."

"The elven race originated in Bol Fores'l. Growing and spreading out from here, they developed both the high arts of civilization and the deep skills of nature lore. In time, elves of each type formed separate communities. So it was they developed into two distinct groups: the Wood Elves who are most gifted in nature lore and earth magic, and the High Elves who are masters of alchemy, city building, and traditional warfare. Both groups still live together in the capitol city of Illas Tiltos, however, and the player who settles in this region can take advantage of the skills of both groups. The Bol Foresl player enjoys the balanced gameplay in all regards. The union of Wood and High Elves carries with it all the benefits and disadvantages of both groups."

"In the Older Time, a small band of orcs pushed as far west from Makkada as they dared without being killed by the retched Humans and Dragons who dominate Western Mythador. There, in the west, they found an uninhabited forest; or at least, if it was inhabited, they soon corrected the situation. They dubbed it Thikken Dal and settled here, and thus were born the Forest Orcs. In Thikken Dal the Forest Orcs developed into great archers. Thus, the Thikken Dal player will rely on using a lot of ranged units and siege weapons. Consequently they are the best orcs for laying sieges, and are good with defence of their own strongholds as well. Although they perform poorly in open field combat.\

"In the far south of the Orcish Realm of Gokkholm is a barren desert region called Brakental. According to legend, a disgraced orc warrior in the Older Times was exiled from Flattan Rol. But he was allowed to choose the uninhabited land in which he would spend the rest of his life. Out of defiance, he chose the most brutal wasteland known to his people: Brakental. It is from this ferocious soul that the Orcs of Brakental trace their lineage. Desert Orcs are a melee fighting race, with cavalry and tamed Ogre beasts. Needless to say, there is very little forest in this desert region. However, there are a good number of gold mines and stone mines. There is plenty of open space for castle building, but with natural defenses and choke points are also plentiful. Hunting opportunities are limited, with very few deer.\n"

"According to Orcish Lore, an Orc is created every time lighting strikes the ground. This is how, in the Older Time, the first Orc ancestors were created here in Flattan Rol, and from them were descended the Orcish Race. To this day, they live by the Ethos of Warriors who are born from lightning and earth. Flattan Rol is still considered to be the original Orc Homeland, and the great fortress here is named Makkada, which means the Mother Womb. Swamp Orcs are massive in size, and have ready access to mounts. However, due to their limited opportunities to learn combat in a wide variety of settings, they are often not the best warriors."
