The following list contains objects, creatures and items that exist in a majority of fantasy games and also exist here. However, they may be mutated specifically to fit the Desert Realm, so you may still want to research them in the Flora and Fauna and other sections.
Some common monster races include orcs, goblins, trolls, ogres, and dragons.
Elves and Dwarves
Elves and dark elves (Drow) exist as well as dwarves. However, in the Forwell region, dwarves are known as Dvorkinnians.
Angels and Demons
Angels, Daemons, and Demons exist, but only specific to the Desert Realm pantheon. These types of creatures may not come from other sources.
Many forms of undead exist in the Desert Realm and are common adversaries. They are created from perverse magic, evil beings, and necromancers.
Necromancers, Liches, Vampires and other powerful creatures are generally limited to moderator control.
Faeries exist but only the the Hyper Magic Zones. Nyads and Dryads also exist in Hyper Magic Zones, but can stray from these during the rare rain storm.
Psionics exists, but it has been altered to be specific to DR. See the Magic and Psionics section.
See the Alchemical Potions section for specifics.
Magical Artifacts and Weaponry
These are specific to Desert Realm - those sourced from other places are generally not allowed. Magic is rare here.
Weapons and Armor
Most medieval weapons and armor are available. The desert is hot and dry so metal armor is rarely used for long periods of time or only used to cover small areas such as a shoulder plate. Some siege engines are available, but generally require approval.
The following list contains items that do exist in the real world but DO NOT exist in the Desert Realm.
Note that this list is never going to contain everything that doesn't exist here. There are too many to list. But it's going to focus on common things that people might create, and things that people have attempted to create that don't fit in this environment.
Steam engines, gun powder, dynamite, electrically powered devices, gasoline, plastic, nuclear weapons, lasers and light sabers, rockets and most chemical bombs. Telescopes and spyglasses are not available unless a specific design is approved. Neither are goggles and glasses. There are a few primitive types of clocks available, but more are not. Also, instead of airplanes, we use balloon ships and Orphean Airships.
Horses (use reapers, calex, drovers, and dummits instead), cows (use banta instead), lions (although there are sandtigers), dogs (use rayvs instead), dinosaurs (there aren't any living, but there might be fossils), panda bears, chickens (use frickens)
Monsters and Mythical Creatures
Monsters from other games are not allowed unless developed, modified, and approved by the moderators. Same goes for Mythical creatures.
Samurai warriors and ninjas do not exist although martial arts does. They just go by different names that are specific to this setting.
Food and Drink
Coffee doesn't exist (use tea and herbal infusions instead). Neither does Marijuana - instead there are many different kinds that are specific to the Desert Realm.
Plants for food and other uses
Dates, peppers, mandrake root, salt and pepper, roses, honey, cotton, hemp, cactus, pipe tobacco, wood (which is rare), and reeds (in the oasis areas).
Ants, blackbirds, crows, desert eagles, falcons, and small monkeys.
Sextant and compass, ceramics, granite, marble, bricks and mortar, limestone, all precious metals and gems, sandstone, wax, sizzors and shears, shovels, pick axes, and non-electrical water pumps.
