What about... something like 'Village Race', its unspecific so you don't need to worry about a backstory and, you can have the focus more on the game itself.
Or.... Something like an argument of law, or religious beliefs is good for human warfare. But remember to be creative... So for example, "a book has been found with magic powers that sway people to believe that all who are against them are enemies, and must die!" Something like this can help the creative ball rolling.
As a suggestive note: Never leave the name creation process to the end. The name or title is an inspiration to my maps before I've even began.
the point is, the race is just the same warcraft settings of the human race
that means the human race still has units like mountain king, rifleman, spell breaker, gryphon rider etc
the gameplay difference from melee game and my RTS map is
- only 1 race
- there are some modification of the units
- can choose only 1 hero to lead the army
- chosen leaders have their own specialty that will further improve the units.
(for eg, Paladin will have better Priests)
I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
