The Bound: that is the existence of the magical entities called the T’Jinn. These beings are magic given sentience. Their bodies are composed of arcane particles with an incorporeal humanoid form. They often don complex arcane armor to help contain the magical forces imbued within them, forces that can sometimes create adverse effects to those around them. By the same powers that destroyed and rebuilt the universe, the T’Jinn were given life. At the core of Terminus, arcane forces coalesced with the spirits of the defunct race that once ruled the surface world. What evolved over eons were the seeds of the T’jinn, crystals called Sparks. Within each of these gems was a T’jinn waiting to be released. It would be mages of the Gnomes and the Ethosians who unlocked the T’jinn. Finding the arcane race to possess arcane powers and properties unlike any other race, the mages bound the T’jinn into service. They remained rare servants, genies some call them, to the great mages until recent years gave them freedom. The goddess Nexus, sensing the remnants of her defunct followers, the Celestials, broke the spells of binding and liberated all T’jinn. The magic race is few in numbers, but they have begun a crusade to locate other Sparks with dormant kin and eventually together they may forge the foundation of a T’jinn society.

      I love it. Nobody else has used this race in an MMORPG! They would very flavorful.

    2. Creator ThreeBeastSmile on February 12, 2014

      I'd like if they'd have the vagueness of a human form; but enough to be considered very distinct from them at the same time.

    3. Creator ThreeBeastSmile on February 12, 2014

      Nice backing story; but I'm really going to have to see concept pics or even screens of them before I jump on this wagon.

    4. Creator Geoff on February 12, 2014

      Awesome, LOVE the backstory on these guys. Very cool concept

    5. Creator Michael Enbom on February 12, 2014

      Woah, this is a race id love to see for my enchanter\wizard. Awesome. :D

    6. Creator Amaziah Hadithi/Ethosian Aspect on February 12, 2014

      Interesting, I like the story more than I thought I would have.

    7. Creator Wilburt-Firiona Vie-Florendyl on February 12, 2014

      What an awesome race. Most unique one I have seen in a MMO yet.

    8. Creator Thomas Bell on February 12, 2014

      How about when the T'jinn race of any particular class needs healing, they can only be healed by a wizard due to magical gifts and not the shaman or cleric. Similar to D&D.

    9. Creator Thomas Bell on February 12, 2014

      Does this game have racial abilities? Could be on to something here. Maybe a Djinn host for any class would add a magical component/ability to the mix. example: rogue or crusader class with the ability to planar shift or add the effects of DoT death abilities, teleport,etc.

    10. Creator Corpselocker on February 12, 2014

      Hrmm... this seems to beg for a whole itemization to be created to facilitate this race. Arcane armor drops?

      "Another arcane breastplate? Argh! You, sir, are no fine steel."

    11. Creator Thomas Bell on February 12, 2014

      I think they would n look best by taking on a human form due to a consentual contract of possession or host.

    12. Creator Goemoe on February 12, 2014

      Interesting. I wonder how they will look like in game terms. :)

    13. Creator Joey on February 12, 2014

      This sounds pretty sweet actually.

    14. Creator Susan Platter on February 12, 2014

      What a fascinating history! These races are turning into a box of tempting chocs, making a choice extremely hard! :D

    15. Creator Pharone The Gnome on February 12, 2014

      This is not the race for me, but it certainly is an interesting race.
