We are the Cursed

This takes place in a fairly generic fantasy world inhabited by humans, elves, dwarfs, and their children (and others, but more on that later). The basic plot is that our characters are sent to a foreign kingdom in an effort to stop a war. The catch is that the country that hired us can't officially move against the other without causing a diplomatic incident and unleash all out war that they would almost certainly lose. The reason we were chosen is because we can be broadly called, as the title implies, cursed. This can encompass a wide variety of afflictions. Perhaps a mage literally cursed you. Maybe you're a spirit that can't pass on. Whatever it is, you can fight but are generally shunned by society due to some negative aspect of your curse. No one expects the cursed to be fighting for the crown.

I expect this RP to be fairly free-form. I'll nail down the basic setting if this garners enough interest, but I generally plan on leaving it as a blank slate for you all to help mold. This means I have no set rules for magic, monsters, or religion. I expect the main races to be humans, elves, dwarfs, and their half-breed spawn, but I am in no way opposed to adding different races. The only things I request in this regard is that if you want to introduce a new race that you A) message me about it for approval first and, B) have a decent idea of how they'll fit into the world. And I really do want them to fit into it and not just be a gimmick that'll allow your character to work. Races may be regional (I think we all expect dwarfs to be more mountain based), but I won't allow a new race to only exist in this one small corner of the world and that's it unless you have a good justification for it.

Anyway, that about sums it up. I'm sure I'm forgetting somethings, so please feel free to ask any questions.

Are there allowed to be more than just those races? Such as other races known or not be included ?

Yes, but you'd need to mess around with the concept enough for your character to still be viable. A knight whose primary skills revolve around that chosen profession is honestly going to be pretty useless in the body of a child. Swords would simply be too long for her to wield properly even if it wouldn't be too heavy for her. So yeah, just make sure you mess around with the concept enough for her to still be useful without negating the actual bad part of the curse (ie. Them being turned into a little girl but still retaining all of their physical capabilities would be a pretty cheep cop out of the curse).

Yeah. I spent most of the second paragraph (quoted below for convenience) explaining the basic process for adding new races.

Since you’re new here, I’m going to try and give you a general run-down on how things typically work on this site (from my experience). You did great by starting off at the interest checks section, finding an RP that interests you, and making that interest publicly known. That tells the RP GM to expect you when the actual RP is made and even tag you if they so desire. From there, however, the GM will usually post a link to the official Character Sheet (CS) page for the RP where players are expected to fill out the pre-made sheet to make their character. The GM will then either accept the character or request further edits be made. All of this happens on the Characters page (not the interest check). It is expected that players will fill out their CS with a character that fits the world of the RP as best as they can. Then all accepted characters begin the RP when the GM makes the first post. Sorry if you knew this already, but I thought I’d try and help out. I say this because this character does not fit this setting. At all. You can find the lore page for this RP with ease by following any of the links I’ve already posted. You’re still welcome to join if you’re interested. Just familiarize yourself with the world and make a character that could fit in it. Many RPs, this one included, will also lay out special rules for the RP that characters are expected to follow (mine are listed above the CS template). And one last thing/word to the wise: don’t expect your characters to be able to easily transfer to any RP that piques your interest. I saw you post this first on Looking for a Team if Heroes, and it doesn’t fit here any better than it did there.
