From Sanctuary Shard
Unlike the earlier incarnation of Sanctuary, the storyline is based around kingdoms with are multi-racial, rather then the races themselves. While races certainly have cultural traditions as to how they prefer to organize themselves, we are not assigning racial leads; to players or staff. The lore on each of the race pages is just that ... lore. Players should not expect to see any reliable presence of the racial leadership in game, but rather focus on the storyline between estates. The real power lies in the land-based armies of the estate owners and the political power of the alliances. If and when a situation requires the formation of an in-game presence for any of the racial leadership, it will be addressed then.
