Hey Druid Fans!
We're pleased to be revealing some new concept artwork today for Unwritten: Dreamtime Our Ursine race was originally designed around Native American type tribal cultures which are highly unique and varied depending on where the tribes originate from, so we decided to bring that element into Ursine culture as well, creating different subcultures of Ursines based on the regions they are adapted to. In Dreamtime, players will be able to choose their Ursine tribe in the character creation sequence and explore a unique storyline pertaining to their tribe. Each tribe will also have some variation in stats and skills so that each time you choose a tribe, you are opening new game play experiences.
The Valley Tribe: Blackclaws
As seen in our previous concept reveals, this is arguably the common tribe. The most adaptable and prolific of the Ursine subcultures, the Blackclaws can be found on every continent in Arthanswold is some manner or other. They are hunters, traders, warriors, and spiritualists.
FAQ: Will Handin appear in Dreamtime? Yes!
The Shoreline Tribe: Sunblessed
These laid back fisher folk can be found around beaches, lakes, and other sources of water. They luxuriate in bathing and are expert fishermen. Some would say the Sunblessed are lazy, but they are just a simple people living a rather care free existence.
The Canyon Tribe: Pangani (working title)
In the shadow of the fire mountain on Duan Rhod lies the unforgiving Elfyre Canyon, home of the Pangani. Don't be fooled by their round bellies and charming smiles these folk are...okay, soft as teddies, but resilient all the same. In a landscape that offers scorching heat, prickly plants, and venomous neighbors, the Pangani seem undaunted by the challenges of canyon life. Known for their adobe villages and pied fur, these desert folks are unique to Duan Rhod.
The Mountain Tribe: Icecore (working title)
The heartiest of all the Ursine tribes, the Icecore are masters of the frozen peaks dotted across Arthanswold. Hunters and Warriors, these great white folk spend their entire lives carving an existence out of ice and stone. They are highly suspicious of outsiders and are not quick to give help to strangers in their lands.
The Ancient Tribe: Khetlek
This near extinct subspecies was the first race of Ursines to ever appear in Arthanswold as a whole. Some speculate that all other Ursines are descended from these archaic cousins, but all Ursines derive their lineage from their patron goddess.
