There are four races in Bless Unleashed PC, Human, Elf, Varg and Ippin.
Each race is unique, and you have the freedom to choose the one you want to represent your character.
Human[edit | edit source]
Humans have proven themselves both stubborn and resourceful since ancient times. Humans are a highly social race and their true strength comes when they band together to forge kingdoms and armies.
Humans appeared later than the Vargs and the Elves.
Beside the Ippin, who came from outside, Humans are the race with the shortest history on the land, yet they have already surpassed both the Vargs and the Elves in maintaining the lead in the continent. Through the Dark Age, Humans were inferior to all other races, constantly being invaded by the Gnolls and the Orcs. They were both ordered and chaotic, and yet better at uniting together than any other race.
It did not take too long for Humans to increase their number and establish a nation.
In order to fight off the Gnolls and the Orcs, all those little tribes united together. Since then, their size has grown to become a single large group. During that period, some great human heroes were born and various political systems were created, died out or changed. Unlike the Elves with their immortality, who did not change their way of life, and the Vargs, who resisted everything from outside, Humans established the system of state and absorbed everything around them, while their numbers grew dramatically.
Finally, Humans built the Old Empire and held supremacy in the continent with the help of the Ancient Elves and their knowledge of magic. The Gnolls and the Orcs were driven out of Human territory. A network of roads, waterways and trading hubs were established by Humans, and other races began to use their network of trade routes, assimilating into Human society.
When Humans built bridges and roads, the Elves and the Vargs walked them as well.
However, as Human society quickly grew, harmful consequences followed.
Humans who learned Elven magic were soon greedy to surpass it, and this resulted in the Nightspire disaster, which destroyed the continent. As they tried to open the gate to another dimension, the Human's also changed the fate of the Elves and the Vargs.
The Elves no longer taught magic to Humans, and the Vargs lost their own world.
And even the fate of the gods, who occasionally involved themselves in the world, were changed.
Varg[edit | edit source]
The wolf-like Varg are undisputed masters of the forest, having earned a reputation for being tough and agile hunters. The Varg are peaceful creatures that revere nature's blessings, but can quickly turn into ferocious beasts when threatened.
Vargs are the second oldest race after the Ancient Elves.
Their characteristics are superior physical abilities, fearless minds and intense fighting spirits.
For a long time, Vargs lived in their own society, disconnected from the rest of the world, avoiding interaction with other races. Even when the fight between gods started, Vargs did not side with anyone and continued their lives in seclusion.
The reason why Vargs appeared in history was due to the disaster caused by the Nightspire.
The disaster started when the dimensional gate opened and caused significant damage to Varg society. That was the first time the world realized how powerful Vargs are and what great warriors they make.
It is a well-known fact that Berserkers are originated from Vargs. Despite their terrifying appearance, Vargs are meek and mild by nature. However, when a fight breaks out, they become fearless warriors known as Berserkers.
When Vargs first appeared in the world, they were constantly misunderstood and seen as a threat to others because of their unique appearance. However, since they were good-hearted, it was not long until they gained the trust of the people.
Elf[edit | edit source]
Elves once thrived on Lumios, living in splendor as near-immortals under the shade of their great tree, Lily'anthes. After the tree was burned, the newly-mortal Elves scattered across the world. Despite their lost heritage, they are proud descendants of the age of magic, and are recognized for their grace and intelligence.
Elves are the oldest race among all the existing races.
The Ancient Elves lived in a time when the giants still existed in tribes. They enjoyed their immortality. However, their number were small and they were way too mild to rule the world. Their most violent task was to fight and drive out the giants who sometimes tried to invade their territory.
World Tree Lily'anthes, who created the Ancient Elves, suffered significant damage and the Ancient Elves lost the protection of World Tree, as well as their immortality. From then on, the Elves had to accept death as a part of their lives, just like all other creatures of the world. Ironically, the population of the Elves sharply increased after they lost their immortality, and they dispersed all across the continent.
After reaching different places, the Elves started their own factions while adapting to their environment. The ones who settled in the desert area created a tribe called the Desert Elves and the ones who settled near the ocean or in the swamp became the Aqua Elves. Just as humans did, Elves quickly adapted to their environment and created groups.
Some of them joined the Old Empire created by humans and spread their knowledge of magic among the people they coexisted with. Unfortunately, their good intentions brought misfortune on them. Some people were discouraged by the Elves superior knowledge of magic and started studying the prohibited magic in order to surpass the Elves. But this led to the great disaster, the Nightspire, which eventually brought the Empire to ruin.
Ippin[edit | edit source]
These diminutive outsiders migrated from lands unknown seeking a fresh start on the continent. Inventive and forever curious, the Ippin possess technology ahead of their time.
The Ippin are the only race from beyond our world.
At some point in the past, they appeared in an airship. After crash-landing, it appears they deleted all their records. It is believed they did this to protect their home, since they place a priority on secrecy. Now, even the Ippin themselves do not know anything about their home.
The Ippin appeared at a time when Humans were still fighting among themselves and causing great chaos in the world. So, no one cared about this foreign race and they quickly adapted themselves into society.
The Ippin were good with numbers and had access to technology that did not exist in the continent, including the airship. Many of the technologies that are common now came from the Ippin, and not many people know that things like the establishment of trade routes, the compass, and astrolabs originated from them. Steam engine technology was also developed by the Ippin, but it didn't become popular because the Ippin insisted on using it exclusively.
Now the Ippin dominate the continent with their economic power rather than their technology. Humans gain power by creating nations and fighting wars. The Elves gain power with their magic. Vargs gain power with their physical superiority. And the Ippin gain power with their money. Borrowing money from the Ippin and paying it back with loot and rewards has become common practice these days.
