    WARNING
    DICE HEAVY



    [​IMG]
    The Gate stood wide open. 10 years have passed since its opening...
    Maybe on this day you are a ruler, looking at this, so foreign portal. maybe you are a general, about to lead their army through the gate by order of the whoever rules your nation.
    It does not matter.

    When the gate first opened, an expedition was set up. An expedition to explore these uncertainty hiding behind this portal that so suddenly opened after it has slept for so many years.
    Or maybe your nation just found this foreign portal, stepped into it, curious to explore that which is hiding.
    It does not matter.

    That what was found was a new World, full of recources, wonders... and dangers.
    Dangers in the form of a nation that did not take it well to see foreign forces take over their untouched valuable recources.
    Was this expected?
    Maybe it was for some nations. Maybe it was not.

    The response was all the same: Diplomats were sent out to contact the apparent Ruler of this new World.

    [​IMG]

    In this world's center, stood it. This world's capital, built around a heavenly crystal.
    A crystal, so beautiful, so big, so recourcefull...
    The crystal surged with power, the air around it, thick, illuminating.
    Touching the crystal... feelings it's potential, unclaimable by those who do not posess it.
    To posess it means to posess this world.
    To posess this world, one needs to conquer this city.


    The streets were empty. The paths were blocked.
    The diplomats would only walk forward until they stood infront of it.
    A palace residing infront of the ccrystal, connected with it. One whole.
    The illusion surrounding this castle faded the closer they got to the crystal.
    Maybe it was fate that all of these diplomats met one another right there.
    Or maybe it was intended by whomever ruled this world.

    The illusion gone, they finally met this world's inhabitants.

    The race they faced, human, they call themself.
    Some of the Diplomats recognized them. Either as a reflection of themself or as a race long gone extinct.
    Some did not recognize them at all and encountered them for the first time in the entirity of their nation's history.
    It does not matter.

    Troops surrounded the diplomats, ordering them to follow. So they did. Not like they had a choice.
    Lead into the castle, right infront a woman.
    A woman, graceful in her every move. Noble in her touch. The voice of a goddess.
    Power surrounded her.
    Power that built for uncountable years.
    The Diplomats shuddered at her every breathe.
    They knew, this one was a danger.
    But did they feel she was exacly that? A danger?
    It does not matter

    [​IMG]

    Her hair, a soft pink. Her regalia, a gold, covering a majestic red.
    Her eyes, blue. Like a deep ocean of knowledge.
    Her crown, befitting for the ruler of this world.

    Her lips opened, for the diplomats it almost seemed... yes, as if time itself obeyed this being.
    But this does not matter.

    "I banish you from my lands! I shall eradicate your pathetic nations from creation itself!"
    The diplomats do not remember more.
    They slept, only to be awoken.
    How they were awoken? Maybe a nation decided to slap them. Maybe a nation splashed water over them, maybe they threw them into the dungeon?
    It does not matter.

    What does matter
    Is that these diplomats were at what each of them knew as their home.
    They shared that what they have seen, what they have experienced, that there are other's
    But most of all, they spoke of war.
    And this does matter.

  2. CHARACTER SHEET

    Character Name: #Khaelesh Raegath.
    Name Meaning: Slayer of Light
    Alias: Godking.
    Gender: Male
    Species/Race: Chakkath.
    Age: Indeterminate, thought to be in the order of a thousand years.
    Place of Birth: Vulkanostis
    Current Residence: Palace of the Untrammelled Darkness
    Occupation: Godking of the Kaoric Empire
    Family: Seventy known sons, thirty known daughters, enough grandchildren to field a small army.
    Role in nation: God-King. Emperor of the Kaoric Empire.
    Family Heirloom: Amulet of the Chained Light.
    Weapon: Black Meteoric Iron Halberd.

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Height: Nine feet standing vertically. Four and a half on majority of limbs.
    Hair: None. Crown of Horns.
    Eyes: Black
    Distinguishing Marks(If any): Eyes seem to draw in light around Khaelesh leading to it appearing as if Khaelesh is robed in shadow.
    General Appearance: As with all Chakkath Khaelesh resembles nothing quite as much as a nearly fourteen foot long Komodo Dragon with eight limb pairs, the two pairs of forelimbs are manipulators and the other two pairs simple legs. As with many Chakkath, Khaelesh typically stands half erec leading to his nine foot height. His scaled head is more draconic in appearance and his forelimbs have razor-sharp claws and, naturally, the crown of horns that single him out as royalty are most dangerous.
    His scales, despite the light-drawing quality of his eyes, are mostly a deep maroon with black patterning. Unlike most Chakkath he also has a number of blade-like protrusions running down his back.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: Power. Khaelesh seeks more power for himself at almost all times.
    Aspirations: Khaelesh seeks power, eternal life and the eternal supremacy of the Kaoric Empire under his rule.
    Likes: I'd say power, but that should be obvious by now. He also likes the taste of his enemies, the feel of blood running across his scales and the surety of shadow.
    Dislikes: The light. As many Chakkath light is annoying to them. He also has a particular level of revulsion for peaceful and pacifistic types. Especially the latter.
    Fears: Traitors, Extreme Light, Death and Oceans.
    General Personality: Khaelesh is cruel, capricious, utterly domineering and strangely charismatic. The loyalty of his people earned through both word and deed. But gods help those who commit crimes within the Kaoric kingdom for he will not.
    Inner Personality: Mostly reflects the persona he projects onto the world all while concealing a deep fear of mortality and the possibility of traitors within his inner circle.
    Fondest Memory: The flavour of his father's blood running down his throat allowing him to take control of the Empire.
    Biggest Regret: The flavour of his first wife's blood running down his throat after she proved unable to give him heirs. An act only done in accordance with law.
    Secret: Has an older brother kept chained in a dungeon bathed in light to incapacitate him.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Khaelesh was born the son of the last Emperor of the Kaoric Empire Adega the Black in the traditional manner, born in the great creche at Vulkanostis. Raised amongst the violent and not a little cannibalistic politics he swiftly managed to demonstrate his superiority to his siblings, both physically leveraging his greater size and natural weapons as well as his greater grasp of the arcane arts swiftling becoming the favoured heir.

    As he grew up he quickly came to dominate in his other studies proving his eminence over his fellow siblings, of which the majority perished one way or another during his educations. Behind his back earning him the name bloodtooth. A name quickly shedded as he entered the final shedding that signalled his ascendancy to adulthood. During this time he took his first wife, who he was forced by law to kill and consume not five years later after it was proven that she could not bear him children.

    He served for another fifteen years commanding the armies of the Kaoric Empire with deadly precision crushing all foes that remained before he made his move against his father. Now called the 'Weaklings War' his father had gathered all those loyal to him to resist the tide of his own military, it's loyalty now sworn to his more aggressive, physically powerful and magically adept son. All of a hundred and twenty men. Adega's personal guard, remained with him.

    Khaelesh killed, consumed and took his fathers place. The rightful Emperor of the Kaoric Empire.

    Their God-King.

    May his shadow fall upon you and shield you from the light with his gaze.

    Present Life: As the Emperor, as the God-King Khaelesh's very nature is that of power and almost everything that occurs in his long life has been the result of its pursuit. From the prodigious number of progeny he has born to more than a dozen chosen concubines expected to give their lives to his children they too have grown up in their fathers protective shadow. And so now he is surrounded by an inner circle of only his most trusted and even most of his own bloodline do not get to sit in on such auspicious councils.

    Special Historic Notes:

    Leadership: +5 on Combat rolls when personally Leading an army.

    Blood Lust:

    Historical background: The Kaoric Empire has been strong for a long time, feeding off its neighbours like a predator, hunting and grinding them down under the great wheels of warfare all in the name of the Chakkath class that serves as it's ruling class. The Kaoric Empire's history of warfare is well versed and laden in blood, a fact that reflects poorly on its peacetime nature. It has a reputation for honouring deals only as long as it suits them, for breaking treaties without a care in the world and more than once using a truce as the perfect chance for the Chakkath leader to assassinate an enemy leader where it's own physical prowess mattered more. Up close and personal.

    The leadership and people of the Empire see nothing wrong with this or the many other amoral ways of the nation. If their enemies did not want such attentions then they should have been born of the Chak.

    Tell a Legend known in your empire mentioning a legendary item that is lost and nowhere to be found

    Legends speak of the Heart of Night. A black shrivelled heart possessed of supernatural powers said to be capable of drawing all light from the world and casting it into darkness conferring the God-King of the Kaoric with eternal life and total mastery of the lightless world.

    And Khaelesh will see it returned to him!

  4. CHARACTER SHEET
    Name Meaning: "Faithful Silent Moon"

    Alias: Bishamonten/ Shirayuki ("White Snow")

    Gender: Male

    Species/Race: Half-Dragon

    Age: 29

    Place of Birth: Nakamodo

    Current Residence: The imperial castle of Nakamodo

    Occupation: Shogun

    Family: Yasushi Rin (Sister)

    Role in nation: Ruler of the Akatsuki.

    Family Heirloom: A scarf made by a masterweaver that is made up of the finest silk.

    Weapon:A master of many weapons; like most Samurai he was born for war and battle and so like most learned to utilize many weapons with equal skill and fervor including but not limited to: the Yumi bow, Naginata and Yari halberds, and the Uchigatana-- a sword worn by most mounted Samurai for its length and disposition for being perfectly suited for slashing from a mount.

    However, the weapon he is most noteworthy and dangerous with is a type of great sword. A four foot blade with a handle large enough to grasp with two hands in confident measure. It is wicked curved, and is very capable of cutting through multiple targets at one time, the Ōdachi.​

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
    Height: 6'ft He is taller than most men. Typically men of the Daybreak Empire stand at most 5'11.

    Hair: Yue's hair is charcoal black, and reaches to about the mid to lower of his back.

    Eyes: His eyes are uniquely, an deep shade of amethyst.

    Distinguishing Marks(If any): Eyes, his sword is rather notable as well.

    General Appearance: When out of battle Yue is seen in tradition samurai garb; silk kimono of a dark blue or purple. He also wears dark colored hakama; pleated pants that allow for a great range of movement. Around his waist, is tied an Obi or sash. This hold his katana and his short sword the Wakzashi in place. He wears a white haori; a thigh-length kimono-like jacket, which adds formality to an outfit. Both his haori and his kimono have the family crest.

    When in combat, he wears what is commonly called "ō-yoroi" or "great armor. It is notably a dark purple-blue also inscribed with his family's crest. He has noticeably large, square shoulder pauldrons. He also wears an uchigatana and will, at times, carry his Ōdachi strapped to his back. He commonly doesn't wear a kabuto, a helm, that most of those who serve under him do.​

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS
    Current Goal/Purpose: To lead his people to a better life than the one of the former shogunate. To protect his sister.

    Aspirations: To build his kingdom, from poverty to power.

    Likes: Meditation, swordplay,Haikus and poems, music, dances, theatrical events.

    Dislikes: Barbarism; the shedding of blood for no reason but pleasure. He has come to hate those that abuse their power of sovereignty.

    Fears: Yue fears, perhaps most of all--of letting his people down. Of leading them astray and of failing them. As one who openly rebelled against his former lord and usurped him, in doing so he cost a great many their lives. He bears their hopes and their dreams on his shoulders.

    General Personality: Yue is, on the outside, dispassionate and despite having come from a poorer samurai family--is very dignified and stately. He comes off as cold, that any slight might be the last offense one is to ever have. He doesn't anger easily at all, and is more analytical, logic driven and highly intelligent.

    Inner Personality: Inside Yue, is a turbulent storm of guilt and hope. Though he won't let anger get to him unless in the most extreme cases--but he is a wounded man. He wonders if his glory was built upon selfish principles. He often questions his self, and at his core--questions the ethics of what it is to be a samurai. He is a man of principle; unable to throw awaythat which his father so willingly and freely gave his life for.

    Fondest Memory: Taking care of his younger sister, and sword play with his father before he had committed seppuku.

    Biggest Regret:

    Secret:

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Yue and his sister Rin came from a much poorer family. Though samurai they were above the commoners, but just barely. His father, a samurai by birthright, was but a clerk and messenger. His father was ordered to commit seppuku when he was falsely charged with espionage and treason. Yue was forced to watch the procession and his father end his life for what he felt was a meaningless death.

    Years later his mother starved herself to death, while keeping Yue and Rin fed. Seeing these things, led to Yue's impassiveness. But the fear of losing his sister led him to train himself formidably. It became known, that the messenger's son was defeating headmasters of sword schools across the lands and fielding himself in conflicts and warring states. All for the sake of keeping his sister safe and fed.

    The news of the meteoric rise of this young swordsman came back to the very Daimyo that had executed his father. When ordered to show himself before the lord, he did so on one condition: he duel him. That fated match lead to the Daimyo's demise, and slated the lust for vengeance he had held onto for so long. But in his travels, and from the accounts of the many battles with which he had faced--he'd seen an even dangerous enemy. A ruler that did not care for his people or their suffering.

    Taking up his sword against the Shogun he began bloody, hard fought a campaign against a tyrant. One who was worse off than the lord who had killed his father. The very same lord, whose men he now commanded and had vowed loyalty to him. It wasn't an easy task, usurping the Shogun Muramasa. Many people died, either at his hand or by his commands. In the end, the battered and tattered banner of the Yasushi flailed where once a castle stood. Yue was catapulted to the Shogun position

    Historical background
    The has not been around for very long. The empire has stood for a hundred and fifty years bornby the great and only king the empire has ever had. King Tetrial who had led his clan into victory against the other clans. He took them down with overwhelming strength but instead of slaughtering them all, he showed them kindness and uplifted them to the ways of their gods, mainly Agatha who he was devoted to. Teaching them the ways of gunpowder that was the key to his victory. It earned him their trust and loyalty, so the Barren Land Empire was founded. Since then they had clashed with Several other Nations, bringing them to their knees and eventually having them join the Council. For The last ten years the Country has seen peace and prosperity.

  7. @Tonedeaf Seeing you having written Giants I must make sure:
    -Picking the religious trait will disallow Giants and instead forces Templar as the special units onto you.
    -A second bad trait is missing.
    -Character sheet of your own character is missing.
    No offense intended, I only wish to make certain that nothing may be missunderstood or may be missing.

    @Manhattan Project said that he would finish his tonight. So as a general info... I am going to review and assist with the sheets as much as I can, but I will only get to properly approve them when I got the time to create the sheets.
    A lot of dice rolls happen behind the curtain to determ resource deposits, taxes...
    For Common recources a lot of factors are considered. I do not wish to disclose them so people will not be able to give themself advantages that they shouldnt have.
    the chance for an uncommon resource deposit is 50% with 4D100
    the chance for a rare resource deposit is 25% with 4D100

    Nation History
    -The Cesedrian Shogunate-
    The Cesedrian Shogunate was a fairly large nation to the east of the continent, located in the Lands of Aglarond. It's capital, now lying in ruins, is now known as "The ruins of Delthuntle". Located in the south of Altumbel.
    The Shogunate lived in peace with it's neighbours. It was known for it's rich Tradition and Culture. The culture was the embodiment of men being stronger, more capable, smarter, better than the so considered inferior female, something that many of it's neighbours adopted.


    Rumors of an invading army from the west reached the Shogunate. They considered this a lie, an attempt to scare the eastern nations from one of the more powerful one. More and more reports came in, scouts were sent out.

    The East stood together to face the west.
    All of the fleets gathered in the Sea of the Fallen, engaging the foreign fleets, a design and culture never seen before in this world.
    Further North, in the lands of Damara, armies gathered to face the enemy.
    To the south, in Unthalass, a siege began, an important location the Eastern Alliance would need to hold to control the south.


    But everything was lost. These hostile armies, did not only bring swords, bows and spears, it also brought Guns... canons.

    The Battles were broken and the Shogunate decided to retreat and regroup in the Lands of Thay. The decision was made to unite under the Cesedrian Shogunate, it having been the most neutral countries of all the east.

    Attempts were made, such as the Geisha of Blades, a small military unit of women of the shogunate. This was very unusual for the Shogunate, it only ever used men for this task and raising women to military command would certainly have it's consequences... if not gotten rid off.
    The Geisha of Blades stroke at hostile supply lines and smaller group regiments that they could take on. This proved to be succesfull as it slowed down the enemies speed.


    Eventually though, they reached the holding, the second Capital of the eastern alliance, the imperial family of the shogunate sold the geisha to the enemy to save themself.
    This would begin the end of the Shogunate, not only to the invading forces, but to everything that was known to be normal.


    A crystal grew where the burned city stood.
    The Dawn of a magical age began.
    Magic began to fill this world as people became very talented with the use of Magic
    There was one survivor of the Geisha of blades. A woman, bearing an amulet on her chest, the trigger of the creation of this magic. She gathered an army and casted down the fires of hell onto her enemies. She did not stop at the portals, regardless of the pleadings, she stepped through these portals to destroy that what harmed her and her sisters. She could not forgive.

    Afterwards the portal closed itself, destroyed by raging thunder.

    Having done this, she turned to the treacherous Emperor, the one that sold her and her sisters to the enemies. She demanded him to abdicate the throne to her, he rejected. Instead of rebelling, she asked one of her advisor to forge a blade out of a crystal.
    With this blade, she stepped up the stairs of the palace, troops around her attempted to strike her, yet their blades would rust and break.
    Stepping infront of the traitor she murdered him in cold blood and took his place. Not as an Empress, but as the first archon of the Arcanium of Cesedria.

    -The Arcanium of Cesedria-
    Weither or not it was intended or not is unknown. People began to view this Geisha of Blades as a Goddess. She rose women to political power while limiting men to jobs not related to politics and high power.
    Portals opened first hundred years. The goddess brought war upon them, destroying them and their entire world as the portals went dark.
    The Archon herself fed on the power of the crystal, becoming more and more powerful with every single second passing.
    Portals then stopped opening and a time of lasting peace would begin.
    This changed ten years ago. When foreign nations began to enter her world once more. She would kill them. Kill them for killing her sisters, parents, friends, everything she loved.
    The nation itself would obey their goddess to exterminate the foreigners. The word of the goddess is law afterall.


    Legend of an item that is lost
    Legends speak of an amulet, given by Alpha, the god of creation to the a female Mortal. This mortal unleashed it's prowess to strike back at the invading armies, destroying them and their entire homeworld in cold blood.
    This mortal would then be known as the Goddess of Feminity, the amulet being lost.
    A scribe once asked the Goddess of Feminity for it's whereabout.
    The only answer was silence.

    General History:


    Present Life:
    She resides every day on her throne, never sleeping, never resting. Her watchful eye observes the world with magic. Orders are given quickly and people respond right away.

    Special Historic Notes:
    During the time of the Cesedrian Shogunate, an edict was passed that forced a choosen group of women to become the "Geisha of Blades", a group of female warrior, which was very unusual for the Shogunate as they only used men for war previously.
    The Nation was losing the war. The Geisha were a desperate attempt to gain more troops when the supply of manpower depleted.
    In the battle for the Capital, the enemy armies pillaged it's treasures. The Imperial family fled the city, abandoning it's citizen to the enemy.
    Only the geisha of blades stood ready and made a futile attempt to save the city.
    This attempt was futile because it turned out that the Imperial Family sold them to the enemy, buying their way out. The Geisha's were an effective combat troop, a thorn in the enemie's side. Their efficency based on the unpredictability of when and where they would strike, they did what the imperial army could not: Gourilla warfare.


    The enemy soldiers invaded their HQ, where the Geisha regrouped.
    Amalia was present in this meeting... and when the enemies stormed their base.
    Taken by suprise, they could not resist the enemy and were quickly defeated. The enemy soldiers proceeded to rape and torture their victims...


    Amalia returned to concioucness. She felt pain down bellow and on the back of her head. She bit her lip, remembering what she saw. Tears rolled down her cheeks and a loud crying could be heard.
    Her surroundings was everything than pretty. We could say that she was the only thing that was whole.
    This is where the god of creation itself spoke to her, gifted her, granted her the power to survive and to bring salvation to her world.
    She rose womanhood to power, men proved to be the doer of wars. They should not get the chance to rise to power.
    Men do serve in the military, in public sectors, as accountands, but they would never gain entry into the politic.
    A spell was created to allow the switch between genders, this served to keep a balance between the needed procreation process and the ammount women.


    This is also, where her rise to power began. With this small Amulet; the gift of a god.
    The worlds that came to hers through these portals, their worlds would go silent. Silent of a void of life.
    Then no more gates opened. Until ten years ago.


    It is now the year 1250 in the age of Feminity.

  14. Just to put together what it is that still needs to be done:

    @Silver needs to post her sheets once she is done and ready.
    I need to create the tables for four nations.

    so....
    if everything works as hoped

    expected IC start: This week sunday.
     
  15. you need this.
    Your nation does not have a name. So I will call the table "The Shogunate" until you have given it one.
     
  16. @Manhattan Project Your table is done. Please have a look at the trade/maintanance values and see if they are correct and in accordance with the governments trade/maintanance value

    @Tonedeaf Are there any recources you do not wish to see in your empire? You can control what and what not is imported or exported. But mind, the things not exported will bring in not bring in trade. If that is done I will enter the data into the table and then your table is done.


    Hmm... I fucked up the trade values somewhere. But I do not care actually ._." I like the values as they are right now.
    Reworked the tables a bit

  17. Naylein Nation, white
    Naylein Nation of Saedyra

    Primary Race:
    The Liens
    Made up of the two subspecies: Raylein(subservient) and Naylein (dominant)
    Show Spoiler

    The Lien are broken into two subspecies, the orginal race, the Raylein, and the Naylein who are a mutated version of Raylein. The Naylein are the dominant of the two species while the Raylein live in servitude to the Naylein.

    Saedyra is a dark world and this is expressed in all of its inhabitants. Raylein are human like in nature, with a tad bit of a point to their ears. These human like creatures have adapted to their dark world and are nocturnal by nature with excellent night vision and a heightened sense of hearing. Most Naylein have a very pale complexion with darker colored hair. Because of their complexions and their worlds lighting. Raylein burn very, very, painfully easily when exposed to strong sunrays, enough so that they can die from exposure. Heir eye’s come in a variety of golds and browns usually. Naylein live approximately for a hundred cycles, there are some cases of living beyond the norm. Magic is a rare gift for the Raylein and not many of their numbers have it. Raylein can produce naturally through sexual intercourse.

    Naylein on the other hand, are like a super version of Raylein. Raylein can be turned into Naylein with a blood transfusion from a willing Naylein. A fledling Nayleing will develop a very strong bond to its Dire or Dame. The Naylein blood travels through the bloodstream before it hits the brain and puts the host into a state of suspended animation while it alters the infected Raylein. When the host wakes up, they will become Naylein and they will have no memory of their Raylein lives. Their senses will be twice as sharp. Their ears will develop a sharper point and their eyes will brighten and glow. They develop sharper, elongated canines and small dainty claws. All of Naylein can use magic, however those who were magically gifted when they were Raylein harness a magic far beyond the normal spectrum. They become faster and stronger than Raylein. Their expected lifespans also increase by 400 cycles.
    However, Naylein must feed off of blood to live. The blood that holds the most nutrition for them is the blood of a Raylein, however they can feed off of other races. But the farther away in genetic makeup the being is from a Raylein, the less effective its nutrition for them. But that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the exotic tastes found in other races. Naylein can infuse any race with their blood in an attempt to turn them into Naylein. However, like the Dath’s before them, there is no promise, and in actuality there is little chance, of the fledgling surviving the change. Blood infusions are the only way for Naylein to “reproduce” it is impossible for them to sexually produce an offspring naturally from a Naylein coupling.

    Reveja: The Thinker, it was thought that Reveja was the one the most clever of the Dath’s and also the most learned, it was because of the records of her insight that the Raylein were allowed to live, and thus allowing the thriving of the Naylein. She is given special attention by scholars and those who use their minds for a living.

    Prilias: the Crafter, it is thought that this Dath had a heavy influence in most of the Rayleins early inventions and crafting. He is hailed as the Sire of invention and crafting. Craftsmen and people in industry lines of work pay homage to the spirit of this Dath.

    Historical background:
    Saedyra was once a fairly primitive world, made up of tribes of Raylein, a human species. These were the early years of Saedrya. It was during these years that the Daths came and integrated themselves into the native peoples. The Dath’s were a foreign race from a dying world. Parasitic by nature, the Daths lived off of the blood of other’s and could not reproduce themselves. So the Dath’s began to prey on the Raylein, they fed from them and turned them. However, the Raylein’s blood did not offer as much substance to the Dath’s as the people from their own homeworld had. The Dath’s began to weaken, however they continued to feed and breed. And those they bred fed and bred as well. However the Raylein that the Dath “infected” were weak as well. And it took many centuries of infection, adaptation, and evolution before the birth of the first healthy being of the Dath’s descendents. They were dubbed Naylein, they were closer genetically to the original Raylein, but they were stronger, faster, better, and more magically infused than the original race. However, like the Dath’s they could not reproduce in the normal manner, and they needed the blood of the Raylein to survive. By this time, the original Dath’s and many generations of their ‘children’ had long died out. Meanwhile at this time in the history of Saedyra, those tribes had grown and learned and began to build towns and permanent structures.

    The Naylein, like their ancestors, kept themselves hidden from the general populace of Saedyra, their numbers were too small to defend themselves. Slowly, as ages crept past, the Naylein turned more and more of the Raylein, boosting their numbers slowly as they bid their time.

    Finally, in the Eighth year of the Dwailie Reign, the Nayleins rose. They began in the easternmost nation of Saedyra and took it as their own, letting their presence be known among those that would care to pay attention. The Naylein elected five generals, to reflect the five Dathian Spirits, to rule over them, for without order there would be chaos. These five generals were known as the First Council. For a few decades, that one nation appeased them. They began to grow as a united peoples, they began to develop themselves.

    It took a century before the Nayleins decided that they wanted more. The first council, still in power at the time, launched a campaign against the world of Saedyra and the Raylein. It was slow, the Naylein were strong, but they were still outnumbered. Inch by proverbial inch, the Naylein began to take over and spread across Saedyra. It took four councils, 2,000 years before the world was completely theirs and the Raylein were enslaved. The Raylein still outnumbered the Naylein but only by a fraction.

    The current year is the 230rd year of the Fifth Council. The Raylein are, for the most part, compliant with their Naylein masters. However, their numbers are on the rise. This has led to the issue of whether or not the Raylein population should have a cap on it.

    Tell a Legend known in your empire mentioning a legendary item that is lost and nowhere to be found
    There is a rumor, that the First Council had a hidden library full of arcane knowledge, much more powerful than the magics of the current era, that had been passed down from the original Dath’s. However, no one has ever heard or seen any trace of it or it’s contents since the rumor began.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND


    General History:
    Before Alaria became Naylein, like all of her people, she began as a Raylein. However, again like the majority of her people, she doesn't remember her life as a Raylein. However, it would soonbecome apparent that she had been one of the Raylien gifted with magic. When Alaria woke as a Naylein, her maker was nowhere to be seen, an uncommon happening, but not unheard of. The newly turned Naylien was taken to a building especially for cases like her own.

    As she went through the necessary lessons to learn the basic control of her newfound magics, it was discovered that she placed in the top 5% of Naylein when it came to the sheer amount of magic power she possessed. When this was discovered, Naylein was sent to the council to be trained in the art of magic by them. One of the council members, Jaeivah, became her main tutor. She would later rise to replace her tutor on the council as one of the youngest members to ever be selected for the role. Alaria trained under Jaeivah for 50 cycles, 40 more than the average Naylien before she and her tutor felt that it was enough.

    After her training, Alaria began to work under Jaeivah as an assistant, watching and learning from the elder Naylein; and unknowingly, although she claims to have been suspicious of it, being groomed to take the council members place when she retired. This continued for another 60 cycles before the time for Jaeivah’s retirement came. As with most council members, Jaeviah was allowed to retire after she hit her 400th cycle, giving her the rest of her life to enjoy as she saw fit.

    Alaria took her council position at the age of 120 Cycles. She was one of the youngest to ever be selected for a council position, but she had held it fairly well for one of her age. She still sits on the council to this day and won’t be released from the position until she chooses to on, or after, her 400th cycle. She is one of the two council members that act as diplomats.

    Alaria has only made one Naylein, a beautiful creature with red hair and vivid green eyes that reminds Alaria of a precious stone she had seen only once. The Raylein had a beautiful and rare coloration that only grew more vivid and beautiful after she was turned. She has named her ‘daughter’ Lairiena and the new Naylein has just touched on her fifth cycle, in five more cycles the young Naylein will begin her own lessons. It is not uncommon to see Alaria doting on her fledgling.

    Present Life:
    Alaria rules over Saedyra as the fourth council member, also known as “The Sorceress”. Her duties include ruling over Saedyra, in particular she has a high influence over magic related issues. She also acts as one of two diplomats. Alaria lives in the capital but has a home outside of the city that she visits whenever she gets the chance. She has one fledgling daughter whom is five cycles old.

  18. does this mean she can pull at the whip and have it ready or does she need to fummel around to get it off her waist like normal people in reality would need to? :D both are fine >.> just asking to understand how quick she would ready to fight if an emergency situation happened.

    Like above, you are free to disallow import/export of certain resources, are there any that you want to restrict?
     
  19. When she first began using it, she probably would've fumbled like crazy with it. but I think at her age she'd have developed a trick to untying it quickly. Kinda like how you pull one tail on a bow and it comes undone. It probably wouldn't go smoothly ALL of the time though.




    Nah, I don't think there's any resources I'd want to restrict. Monies are good -nods-
