    So, we have a setting where Dwarves have developed trench warfare and WWII-era tactics. Halflings and other small races utilise floating siege weaponry for combat, overpowering their foes, while elves and orcs fly the skies in unpowered gliders.

    Looks like, Halflings shoot down Orc/Elf flyers, Dwarves dodge Halfling bolts in their trenches, and Orc/Elf flyers bomb Dwarves from above.

    Elves should have giant bombardier beetles in a symbiotic relationship. The beetles assist in the air raids and provide lift for elves with damaged gliders, and they are allowed to lay their eggs in the fresh corpses of the elves' foes in return. This has an added benefit: Any enemy force who tries to retrieve their deceased from elven camps is in for a nasty surprise in form of giant beetle grubs emerging from their fallen comrades' bodies.

    Elves believe it's appropriate for nature to take its course, so it is not considered disgusting to allow the grubs to feed on even the elven dead. In fact, this is considered a honorable burial reserved for elves of great military accomplishments, the idea being that the elf can serve even after his death by providing his very body as rations. Even the elven goddess of death is depicted as an amalgam of various ground beetles, her most distinctive feature being the sharp, large mandibles of a tiger beetle, with which she reaps the souls of the deceased.

    Fuck spiders, bombardier beetle elves are the best. In fact, honored priestesses of that death goddess should be driders, except with bombardier beetles. So instead of half hot drow girl and half giant spider, you have half hot elven girl and half giant chitin-covered engine of burning hydroquinones. And after the priestess is done blasting the elves' foes with death from above, she brings over a shitton of giant beetles to convert the corpses into new soldiers for her ranks of giant beetles.

    Dwarves, of course, don't have any air support. They don't need it, and most current flaying crafts can be taken down in one or two good hits. With their reverse-flamethrowers and badgers they excel at reforming terrain and are practically unmatched in ground combat. They are able to strike them down in other ways, such as long-distance canons.
    >> Anonymous 04/14/11(Thu)15:19 No.14594018
    Stamina issues, probably. Beetles are only large enough to safely land a single elf, and that's with difficulty. They can't manuever or fly for long periods with a rider, they're more like flamethrower-bearing weapon platforms that double as parachutes in a pinch than reliable steeds.

    Of course, if you want your elves to be completely amoral, you can say that they have small children ride the larger beetles, carrying an extra supply of bombs. Yeah, terrorist elf children.

    Perhaps the orcs are loners. They know how to make slightly larger skycanoes for up to half a dozen people, but they don't utilize them in warfare because every attempt inevitably meets disaster. Orc1 wants to steer the ship left, Orc2 disagrees and says they should go right, Orc3 demands they raise their altitude, eventually they crash or get shot while arguing over what needs to be done. They're good at military style orders like capturing points or strategical retreats, but when it comes to personal, spur-of-the-moment decisions they all want to be in command, hence why their war machines are designed to be operated by a single orc each.

    They're like Sidereal Exalted, lone orcs are armies unto themselves while 50 of them forced to act together are worthless.

    Why not split the difference?

    They're adaptable, golem-using inventors/workers for hire. The golems act as servants to them in day-to-day life, and human influence has pervaded almost every other faction at some level. Usually articifers and tinkerers due to their adaptability and creativity, but some settle for being mere warriors. They are great 'idea' people, but their short lifespans and lack of specialisation usually means they must ally themselves with other races to get the technology to see their inventions shine to their full potentials.

    They in turn know a fair amount about each other race's abilities, such as the Dwarves' metalworking or the Halfling's capitalist endeavours, but seldom are they masters of the arts as the other races are. In a straight contest, the human's technology is clearly inferior. They instead must rely upon innovative strategies and a blend of technologies unfamiliar to their foes to attain victory.

    The humans' golems are more than servants; they can form terrible warriors all but immune to damage. Some are customised to hold a user inside, enhancing their natural capabilities far past a human limit.

    Probably needs a better name than that but the setting is indeed quite silly.

    Since it seems to be set in a fantasy North America, New World Warriors?

    I could be
    but the recents Factions don't fit in the North America war

    Have it be a Fantasy North America, with a bunch of entirely unrelated races. Conventional fantasy is usually in a psuedo-Europe but seldom exclusively have races based on real European cultures.
