Edit: Aww, no response? I was hoping this would get at least some comments... =/
Okay, I've been lazy for long enough now. Time to get back to my book-writing project thingymabob.
This is a basic summary of the history of the book-world as it relates to the plot. This is a general outline; I'm not going to be going in-depth with a description of every single war and king and whatever.
In ancient times, back when both races had extremely primitive and tribal cultures, the Canis enslaved the Sculi due to the fact that they could use magic and the Sculi can't in between endless wars with each other. The Sculi, pissed off at this, attempted to replicate the controlling of Animus the Canis accomplished when the Canis weren't looking, and eventually found a way to channel Animus through an external object rather than their own body. They escape, and train in magic. A few decades later, an army of magic-trained Sculi used the fact that they weren't limited to a single element and had mostly unified to devastate the Canis and squash any idea on the Canis's part of trying to once again enslave them. After that, they sorta retire to a remote area and force the Canis to occasionally pay tribute to them.
Fast forward a couple thousand years. Tensions between the Canis and Sculi are extremely high due to the Canis's steadily improving tech and a move towards one (oligarchical) government; they're at approximately industrial revolution level tech at the time. The Sculi attempt to quash technology because it helps the Canis nearly equal the Sculi's improved magic in combat, and one government might lead to large, organized uprisings.
Of course, this causes uprisings.
One major leader for the Canis who strongly supports overthrowing the Sculi starts work on a magical implantation to increase the Canis's magical abilities so that they can use more than one element; it begins testing by implanting them into the members of a group of renegades who rely on guerrilla warfare shortly before the story begins.

Anyone know what can cause one of those laptop mousepad thingies to stop acknowledging input? The button parts still work, but I can't scroll or move the mouse or anything. I also made sure I hadn't accidentally set it so that it required an enormous amount of pressure to move or something.

Yup. He sucks. And stuff. Because he's evil. And he eats babies. And rapes them. And... uhhh... he's responsible for everything Dubya ever did. And he's Dick Cheney in one of those fake nose and mustache glasses. And he is a suicide bomber. Plus, he isn't a ninja or a pirate!
Bring it on, ya damn Horde-people! My shammy will own you despite being only level 56! Solo! Because he's AWESOME!
Edit: Hah! My cunning strategy has already gotten me a whole
THREE SIX HITS!
I think this smells like bullshit. For example, the slanting: It says that right slant means you're open to the world around you and like to socialize.
My handwriting slants right because I write fast. It doesn't do that if I try to write slow. So, how do I fall in this?
