Troll Gate by leoshades
Troll Gate
Typically one would not think of a troll at your gate as a desirable circumstance, unless that troll is the only thing holding back a horde of goblins and a massive beast of burden being used as a battering ram. 

Unfortunately, you cannot see much of the attackers, particularly the ramming beast nor the crossbow wielding goblins due to the fae druid's summoned vines... Oh well. 

Thank you for taking a look and any comments you wish to leave...
Moment of Peace by leoshades
Moment of Peace
The original idea behind this was a warrior falling to their knees after a battle (as original as that is...). That is not quite where it ended up, but that is just the way of things.

Thanks for looking, and any comments you wish to leave...
Schek (Dwarves) by leoshades
Schek (Dwarves)

During the Age of Corruption, those Varfahren (essentially humans) that had not succumbed to the Corruption were slowly being driven further north. These forerunners of the Schek began to take refuge beneath the earth, even beginning to build what would become vast subterranean citadels. Along with greater security, they also found an unexpected and rather unusual ally. Within natural caverns, they encountered sentient crystalline entities. It was discovered that these crystal beings could bond with the Varfahren to create a symbiotic relationship. Within their bodies, the crystalline entities found the freedom of mobility, and through the resulting physiological and mental alterations to Varfahren, the Schek were born.

    The Schek were generally shorter, stockier and stronger, but most importantly at the time, they discovered the symbiont made them immune to the Corruption. Other than the aforementioned changes, there is typically little that would indicate to an outsider that a crystalline symbiont resides within the body of a Schek. However, a small percentage of the population slowly transforms throughout their lifetime into a completely crystalline, though bipedal, being. The rate of change varies among individuals, but most develop crystalline growths upon their bodies during or preceding puberty. Schek society generally consider this transformation to be something of a blessing, as far as those that are experiencing it, individual response can vary greatly.

This one is a bit of a riot of color... Thanks for looking and let me know what you think, if you are so inclined.

Dril (Sea Elves) by leoshades
Dril (Sea Elves)
The Dril, or Sea Elves, were the first and progenitors of all the Elves of Vahl. They generally live beneath the seas, but they are capable of dwelling on land. As the first age, the Age of Valtameret (Oceans), progressed, an increasing number of Dril chose to live upon land, and they evolved into the various races of Elves. This exodus, followed by the losses during the Age of Corruption, has led to unfortunate decline in their numbers. However, they still have many cities and communities beneath the seas, many of which have contact and trade with the surface races.

Troll Raiders by leoshades
Troll Raiders
A warband of Trolls can make for a formidable foe, striking quickly and with deadly efficiency against villages, even those among the trees. However, the Vahnwa Elves live among self-aware and hive-minded trees which warn them of such violence, allowing them to quickly organize resistance. If such warnings and lines of communication fail to turn the tide of battle, some of the trees themselves can rouse themselves to battle. Even a veteran troll will consider fleeing when facing a Treant towering up to a hundred feet tall lumbering towards them with hostile intent and wielding the strongest of druidic magic.
