Races

Human-Of modest height, typically tan-skinned, and somewhat stocky. Have brown, black, or red hair. Blue or brown eyes. Typically better with combat magic than support magic, and have a much better skillset for aiming guns than bows or crossbows. Humans do best with longer melee weapons like spears or claymores, have somewhat signifigant strength but mediocre speed. Don't take magical punishment particularly well. Average lifespan 70 years.

Elf-Tall, pale, and wiry. Elves have gray or bluish hair and somewhat yellowish skin. Green or pinkish eyes. Typically better with support magic than combat magic, and while perfectly capable of using guns, they generally choose not to. Elves do best with shorter melee weapons like daggers or clubs, have mediocre strength but somewhat signifigant speed. Don't take physical punishment particularly well. Average lifespan 120 years.

Fairy/Demon-While technically the same race, the only distinction being gender, fairies and demons are highly unique both as groups and individuals. They are beings of pure magic, and their physical form is a projection of their soul;changing constantly with each action. Demons tend to be beast-like with hooves while fairies tend to be insect-like with wings. Demons are typically extraordinary combat mages. Fairies are typically extraordinary support mages. Neither are generally very strong or fast. Take physical punishment as well as a stick of butter being beaten with a barbwire cane... that's on fire. Fairies typically have blonde hair, while demons typically have black or gray hair. Demons and/or fairies are ageless; only die from being killed.

Lizardman-Typically not very good at any form of magic, lizardmen are highly adept in the use of thrown weapons (axes, daggers). Very fast and strong, can take physical punishment very well. Pitiful ability to take magical punishment. Does best with one-handed weapons that can be used with a shield. Vary wildly in nearly every visual factor. Average lifespan 45 years.

Clockwork-Hulking mechanical beings. Some are the victim of cruel experiments, while others are simply the result of man longing for more time in this world. Mechanical bodies animated by an internally held soul jar, clockwork are extremely strong but slow as a result of their weight. Clockworks have virtually no capacity for magic, or even using magical artifacts. Takes physical punishment like a brick wall... being hit by a piece of damp string. No average lifespan.

Materials

Explanation of Terms
Universal
Name-The name of the material in question

Rarity-Categories actually have their own base rarity (e.g. gemstones are obviously more rare than metals)

Color-The most common color for an object created out of the material

Metallic

Strength-Strength covers a general variety of "strength" factors, including hardness, durability, etc, and should simply be used as an index for what happens when X meets Y.

Weight-This is more "density", in actuality, but it will work just fine for the intent. Weight should be used to help you decide how thick armor or how large weapons of X material is reasonable.

Gemstone

Amplification-The ability of the particular gemstone to boost magical power when used as a focus item

Affinity-What type of magic the particular gemstone is most suited to boosting
_Support-Negative-Debuff magic such as poison or weaken

_Combat-Damage dealing magic like fireballs or magic missiles

Money

The money system is quite simple. Using a base unit of "copper"(copper coins) which is worth approximately one USD, the system then multiplies or divides by ten for each material change.

Geography
map image last updated on november 5th, 2010.

*click for 2x zoom
This is the kingdom of Jamor, where all roleplay will take place. The main city of Jamor is Generia, which has a sister city of Standaria. There is a barbarian village to the north-east called Apzen. To the south is the camp of the Zhasim, a dangerous and ominous group of assassins who train themselves in the arcane. There is a strange site in the south-west corner of the map, though little is currently known about it. Zhasim camp is inaccessible in RP to those who are not accepted as a member during RP. Apzen is liable to close and open to outsiders depending on where the story goes.

The entire kingdom is cold year round, and is currently in early spring.

Generia is essentially a trade hub, most shops exist here. Doesn't have the best gear but has a wide variety. Generia has the best blacksmith.

Standaria was abandoned after an attack. It is populated by zombies and snow.

Apzen is a rather small village. It is recovering from a terrible incident. Apzen has the best tavern.

Zhasim camp is a dangerous place. It has the best ranged weapons shop as well as the best shop for spellbooks/scrolls.

Gods

The gods of this world are numerous but still powerful. The gods are divided into three groups, each representing one alignment as a whole, that is to say, life, nature, and death. These groups are called "orders", and united they are extremely powerful. The elemental order contains six gods: the god of air, water, earth, fire, lightning, and ice. The order of life contains three gods: the god of peace, order, and light. The order of death contains three gods as well: the god of war, chaos, and darkness.

The Order of Life

God of Light - Sien: Appearing as a small child with glowing blue eyes and pale skin, Sien does not reside in any one location, but travels around the world at the point of mid-summer. Sien is most closely allied with the god of air.

God of Order - Gomir: Appearing as a massive, living statue, Gomir resides inside the largest castle in the entire world, far away from jamor. Gomir is most closely allied with the god of earth.

God of Lightning - Zhamus: Appearing as two great wheels spinning around an orb of electricity, Zhamol resides in an endless storm just to the north of Jamor. Zhamol is most closely allied with the god of chaos.

Auras[WIP]

Each god is associated with a different aura, which devout followers such as clerics, priests, or other worshippers may posess. The order of life and death both posses "External" auras, meaning that they affect everyone and everything around them, while the elemental order possesses "Internal" auras, meaning they affect only the user.

Order of Death
(Noctus/Darkness)The aura of Decay: Plants die beneath your feet, the air around you thickens and chills, people feel saddened and frightened. Strengthens at night, and after worship to noctus. Can be easily manipulated by the one who posesses this order, allowing them to sadden or frighten certain targets, to varying effect. This aura fills only the immediate area around the user, penetrates through walls.

(Tanios/War)The aura of Aggression: Animals become angered, the air around you becomes warm and uncomfortable. Those who posses this aura will be unnaturally strong when angered, and can manipulate people within the aura more easily. This aura fills a fairly large space, does not penetrate through walls.

(Xaoc/Chaos)The aura of Insanity: Objects around you crack and shatter, fire flickers random colors, the air flashes from hot to cool to stagnant to flowing rapidly. People nearby can feel uneasy, filled with a peculiar happiness, compelled to do strange things, but generally harm themselves.

Order of Life

(Sien/Light)The Flourishing aura: A visible glow emanates from you, those around you are filled with warmth and joy, plants bloom around you and spring up from even the most barren of soil. The aura strengthens during the day and immediately after worshipping Sien, and covers only a small area around you, but penetrates through walls. The aura is easily manipulated to heal certain targets or those around you.

(Gomir/Order)The aura of

(Cyius/Peace)The Calming aura: Time seems to move slower for the user and those near them, the air moves only slowly. Those who are normally belligerent and irritable are calmed and relaxed, animals will become passive and kind. The aura covers a vast area, and penetrates through walls.

The Elemental Order

(Huwus/Air)Zephyrian aura: your wind magic becomes stronger, and all your magic gains a higher success rate and/or becomes more accurate.

(Shorus/Water)Aquarian aura: your water magic becomes stronger, and all of your magic requires less mana to cast.

(Thamus/Earth)Terran aura: your earth magic becomes stronger, and all of your magic penetrates defences easier.

(Fuerus/Fire)Pyrian aura: your fire magic becomes stronger, and all of your magic becomes more damaging.

(Zhamus/Lightning)Fulmirian aura: your lightning magic becomes stronger, and all targets of any of your magic will be weakened physically.

(Krichtus/Ice)Glacian aura: your ice magic becomes stronger, and all your magic drains your target's mana.
