Breed/Species Note

xxxxxPlease keep in mind when applying that Breeds and Species outside of the ones found in the geographical are need a solid backstory when apping in. Want to play a Breed or Species that's commonly found in another country and not here? Write the reason why they are here. Please also make sure to review any notes that go with a particular species for clarifications. Species from War Against the Pure are adapted to fall in line with the format/setup of Changing Breeds species. Changing Breeds species that are missing information or that we have altered in some way may have clarifications. Some Stats may have been adjusted from Book for Balance reasons. Make sure to check them before applying! Thanks!
