Portals of Strife LoreThe Sharuby people had lived in peace for eons, forging a lasting Utopia the likes of which existence had never seen. Having mastered their surroundings, created means to create anything one might need by way of replication, and culling bad habits through selective breeding and genetic modification, the Sharuby no longer have a care in the world except the ever present pursuit of knowledge.
At the dawn of a new century the last mysteries of space and time were beginning to unravel for the Sharuby people, so a meeting of elders convened to decide on a path forward with such grand knowledge. It was decided that a machine was to be built that could open portals to distant places in the hopes of discovering new mysteries to solve.
The machine hummed to life and an entire world cheered at once! Hundreds of portals were opening precisely on time and exactly in their designated locations, those with the most powerful wanderlust and the most voracious appetite for knowledge stepped up and once
PoS race list1. Woodland Furries: a small rodent like race of voracious carnivores. Although incredibly cute, they have eaten most other intelligent creatures on their world, leading them to starvation and an increase in cannibalism.

3. Orcish Crusaders: The orcs used to be a primal race who loved nothing but fighting, but then they found religion. Wi
