Fertility

Elves are only fertile during the Aurora Days. With one exception (orcs).

More specifically, the elven ovum is only receptive to seed during the Aurora days. So they only effectively menstruate every 91 days.

This is why Auroral days are celebrated as fertility days. It is the only day elves can be impregnated (there is an 80% success rate on this day).

Halflings are often from human mothers and elven fathers.

Elven mothers give birth to pairs - sometimes fraternal, sometimes identical. Elves always give birth on an Auroral Day, too. Usually 5 of these pass before they give birth.

  • When an elf is the father, it is two elves. (ee+ee=ee)
  • When a human is the father, it is two halflings. (ee+hh=eh)
  • When an orc is the father, an elven mother can be impregnated at any time, not just on Aurora days. The children are two humans. They still give birth on Auroral Days. (ee+oo=hh)

---

Orcs are fertile every day of the year. They effectively menstruate multiple times a day. (They have a 9% chance of getting pregnant)

Orcish mothers give birth to single children. Multiple births are unheard of. Their gestation period is roughly 90 days, or less than an Auroral cycle.

  • When an elf is a father, it is a human. Impregnation is pretty much automatic. (ee+oo=hh)
  • When a human is the father, it is a goblin. (hh+oo=ho)
  • When an orc is a father, it is an orc. (oo+oo=oo)

---

Humans are fertile once every 21 days. They mestruate once every 3 weeks. (they have a 5% chance of getting pregnant)

They either give birth to single children, or multiple children.

  • When an elf is a father, it is a halfling. Twins are possible, but not mandatory. (hh+ee=he)
  • When a human is the father, it is a human. (hh+hh=hh)
  • When an orc is a father, it is a goblin. (hh+oo=ho)

---

Half breeds are somewhat simpler (fertility rates are all over the map):

  • Goblin father + elf mother = human + Halfling (ho+ee) = (he, oe, oe, he)
  • Halfling father + orc mother = human (he+oo) = ho, ho, oe, oe)
  • Halfling+ Goblin (regardless) = human (he+ho) = (hh,he,ho,eo)
  • Halfling + elf = Halfling + elf (Halfling born first)
  • Goblin + orc = Goblin/orc (equal chance)
  • Halfling + human = Halfling/human (equal chance)
  • Goblin + human = Goblin/human (equal chance)

---

The races of the land, as they are derived from the earth, cross with the many guises differently:

Dwarves, as they are derived from humans, can only mix their blood with humans. Only humans can carry the infertile half-breed "Mul." Muls are favorites in gladiator fights.

Presumably the Trolls and Orcs can also mix, but nobody's bothered to try, or if they have, nothing has come from it.

The races of the land lack any sort of sexual drive. Mating is a thing of obligation for them.
