Drake Burners are the few and the proud, who have inherited most truly the strengths of their remote ancestors, especially the ability to breathe fire. This, coupled with their sheer size and clawed hands makes for a dangerous foe in combat.

The flying configurations known as Drake Infernos are the masters of the fire they breathe, and rival their predecessors the Dragons in their ability to use it. This natural ability renders them nearly immune to fire. Their shining, flame-colored armor is a mark of their proud and powerful caste, the ideal to which their brethren aspire.

Drakes are an old race, wise enough to hearken to their own natural leaders. Those who are called 'flares' by their enemies are the drakes who aspire to be such leaders, both in war and in peace.
 
  
 +
The '''Drakes''' are a faction of dragon-like [[Drakes (race)|Drakes]] and their lizard [[Saurians|Saurian]] allies. Drakes are descendants of dragons, but smaller in size. Saurians are considerably smaller than Drakes and from different ancestry. Together, the Drake faction has high mobility but low defense, leading to unusual tactics for a [[Default Era]] faction.

It is said that the eldest lines of drakes - the direct descendants of the dragons themselves, have veins which course with fire rather than blood. That they can breathe fire as they do lends credence to this belief, though, for some reason, no one has tried cutting one open to find out.
 
  
 +
Drakes are large, winged and fire-breathing creatures, reminiscent of true dragons. On average, an adult drake stands around three meters tall and easily weighs more than a man and a horse combined. Their skin is made up of hard scales, resistant to most physical strikes except piercing and cold damage. Most drakes are capable of true flight and can travel long distances quickly. However, their sheer weight and bulk limits their flight ability somewhat, making them ungainly in the air. Where possible, they make use of terrain features such as hills, mountains and trees as launch points in order to gain greater height and speed. Fortunately for their enemies, they are still quite clumsy creatures and surprisingly slow in combat. This, combined with their large size, renders them easy targets for those who dare attack them.

Saurians are the smaller, more crafty allies of the Drakes. They often live in swamps or other damp places. Saurians are very small of frame, and though they are somewhat frail because of this, they are very, very agile. In combat, their size allows some of them to dart past defenses that would hold any grown man at bay, making them a tricky foe to deal with. Other saurians have some knowledge of what men call sorcery, but their practice of it reeks of augury and black magic. It is little understood, but rightly regarded with fear by those against whom it is used.

Drakes generally win by dealing the most damage. Their units are big and deadly, but they're also more expensive than most. The best way to play Drakes is to take advantage of having the best mobility in the game by placing the units in hard-to-access places such as behind mountains or across water from their opponent. Drakes have the advantage by being able to decide when and where battles will happen. Their major disadvantage is how easily their units will take damage. Because of this they usually want to be the aggressor in battle to kill a unit or two, get damaged, and then flee to heal. Having a mobile healer helps with this if villages are sparse.

Drake Gliders wear as little armor as possible so they can quickly escape their foes when they leave their caves. These Drakes are competent fighters, possessing the internal fire common to many of their kin. Gliders can also effectively use their speed to viciously slam their opponents into submission. The best gliders can look forward to being accepted into the ranks of the high flying Sky Drakes. From their aerial vantage point, these drakes can see past most defensive cover. Their skill at flying allows them the precision to target enemies under such cover.

Sky drakes are truly the kings of the sky. Using their momentum and fire breath as weapons these drakes are the bane of many. They can swiftly swoop down on prey, and are usually long gone before anyone can stop them. By attacking from the air, they can spit fire with great precision into positions which would otherwise afford a great defensive advantage to their foes.

A Drake Clasher is incapable of both flight and fire-breathing, and most assume their relegation to melee combat is because of disability - an attempt to garner use from what otherwise would be a liability. It is possible that they have some mild deficiency in those skills, but those who support this theory have failed to consider how uniquely well-suited they are to combat a fellow drake.
 
 
 
They are, in fact, the Judicators of the Drake Hierarchy, and though their armament is now largely ceremonial, it is none the less effective. In their encounters with lesser races, they discovered that their natural size and strength were themselves powerful weapons, and when combined with the armament worn by this caste, the resulting warriors lack some of the typical weaknesses of their kind, such as the strong vulnerability to spears and arrows.

The Gladiator has taken a completely different path from the Slashers. Rather than emphasize training, they have chosen to focus on the craft of their weaponry. They are the smiths of Drake society, and it follows that they possess the best weaponry - the sharpest blades and spears, and the maces which complement their already impressive array. Their intense focus on their weapons comes at the slight expense of their defensive abilities.

Slashers are clashers who have chosen to master the use of a Halberd instead of carrying a sword and the spear. Their great size allows them to use a weapon of matching scale, large enough to skewer a horse as a man would a boar. Their training has also enhanced their stamina and defensive skills, which is a major advantage over their close cousins the Gladiators.

The Warden represents the pinnacle of the clasher caste, being picked from the most able Slashers. They have forged their might such that few warriors on this earth would dare stand against them. The Wardens' weapon of choice is the halberd, which they use to great effect.

The Drakes are a faction of dragon-like Drakes and their lizard Saurian allies. Drakes are descendants of dragons, but smaller in size. Saurians are considerably smaller than Drakes and from different ancestry. Together, the Drake faction has high mobility but low defense, leading to unusual tactics for a Default Era faction.

Races

Drakes

Main article: Drakes (race)

Drakes are large, winged and fire-breathing creatures, reminiscent of true dragons. On average, an adult drake stands around three meters tall and easily weighs more than a man and a horse combined. Their skin is made up of hard scales, resistant to most physical strikes except piercing and cold damage. Most drakes are capable of true flight and can travel long distances quickly. However, their sheer weight and bulk limits their flight ability somewhat, making them ungainly in the air. Where possible, they make use of terrain features such as hills, mountains and trees as launch points in order to gain greater height and speed. Fortunately for their enemies, they are still quite clumsy creatures and surprisingly slow in combat. This, combined with their large size, renders them easy targets for those who dare attack them.

Saurians

Main article: Saurians

Saurians are the smaller, more crafty allies of the Drakes. They often live in swamps or other damp places. Saurians are very small of frame, and though they are somewhat frail because of this, they are very, very agile. In combat, their size allows some of them to dart past defenses that would hold any grown man at bay, making them a tricky foe to deal with. Other saurians have some knowledge of what men call sorcery, but their practice of it reeks of augury and black magic. It is little understood, but rightly regarded with fear by those against whom it is used.

Tactics

Main article: How to play Drakes

Drakes generally win by dealing the most damage. Their units are big and deadly, but they're also more expensive than most. The best way to play Drakes is to take advantage of having the best mobility in the game by placing the units in hard-to-access places such as behind mountains or across water from their opponent. Drakes have the advantage by being able to decide when and where battles will happen. Their major disadvantage is how easily their units will take damage. Because of this they usually want to be the aggressor in battle to kill a unit or two, get damaged, and then flee to heal. Having a mobile healer helps with this if villages are sparse.
