Kerameikos, God of Fire, lava and volcanos-

One of the oldest celestials and most dangerous . Kerameikos, is the god of all things fiery and hot. He has very Orange And Blue Morality viewing the world as one giant pyre being built, as long as fires are burning he is happy, and when they are not isn't so he does things that make him happy, and sets things on fire.

He has knowledge of typical morality but being born into consciousness long before it, he rejects it in favor of his own morality. Which basically boils down to if it's on fire and being consumed, it's good but should not grow out of control or it too may die off.

Worshipers of him typically worship him to avoid unwanted fires and eruptions by burning things in tribute, though due to his untypical morality there are also worshipers who simply set fires in his honor even if those fires are not wanted. In return for this he does not intentionally set fires or eruptions but if others cause them he won't stop them either.

When appearing to humanoids he often appears as a flaming featureless worm, though he has been known to take the form of a humanoid looking fire elemental.

He like Elena has bad or rocky relations with almost every god and goddess, with the exception of Torq, and the god of the forge.

Soft side - Kerameikos has developed a soft-side if you will for his worshipers. Often giving them gifts of heat, and protection from fire's consuming powers, he is proud and unashamed of this relationship with his worshipers. Often times when his more devote worshipers die, he is so moved that he re-ignites their life-fire and creates a flame spirit of them. This was a concept he borrowed copied from Elena but unlike her's, his are not original creations but more him re-stoking a dying fire. These flame spirits are sometimes called fire-elementals.


Aegaeus, God of water, and rain -

Another one of the oldest and most power celestials is the God of water and rain. He is the god of all things wet and watery. He is worshiped all across the world by everyone from sailors to farmers. Clerics to him often wander dry areas with fresh supplies of water to pass out to people.

He sees himself as a part of the cycle of life, cycles are very important in his philosophy, even his symbol is a cycle of rain drops becoming clouds and vice versa.

He is also one of the few gods to wholly get along with Elena, and one of her closest allies. He also sees himself of a guardian of humanoids and animals as well given they are mostly made up of water, and in his mind that makes them his kin. He refers to all creatures which are made up of water as ''aquakins' and tends to have trouble seeing differences say a bird and a orc.

His clerics tend to where blue and their temples are almost always built by sources of flowing water. They share his blindness towards other races and creatures seeing those who are not made of either stone or metal, as their kin. Worshipers of him usually at least once in their life time join a caravan and take water into the dry mountains or deserts in search of their kin who may need to be refreshed, some do it many times those who do are often considered honorary clerics even if they aren't officially clerics with the temple.

Proposals of World Geography as by Goa #1

Please note each of these proposals as seperate votes, especially as some of them are mutually exclusive.

  • 1a. 1 land mass of the same approximate area and over all length as the Americas with particular inspiration of shape to be given over to an upside-down Africa and Europe in its north and south portions respectively, henceforth to be known as the New Lands, the World Spine.
  • 1b. 1 land mass of the same approximate area and over all length as the Americas as what ever shape we want it to be, henceforth to be known as the New Lands, the World Spine.
  • 2a. 3 major oceans and 1 minor ocean to actual be mostly frozen ice as to be more of an ice mass located at one of the poles. Of the three major oceans, two shall be smaller then the other and of roughly equal size. These two will be to either side of the New Lands while the larger will be on the opposite side of the world.
  • 2b. 3 major oceans and 1 minor ocean to actual be mostly frozen ice as to be more of an ice mass located at one of the poles. Of the three major oceans, two shall be greater then other and of roughly equal size. These two will be to either side of the New Lands while the smaler will be on the opposite side of the world.
  • 2c. Just 2 major oceans thank you, making the Old Lands and the New Lands at roughly opposite points.
  • 3. Nix the arctic ocean.
  • 4. Add another minor ocean somewhere, ala the Indian Ocean.
  • 5a. A number of 3 continents of roughly the same area as Africa, two of which will be close neighbor while the third will be by itself, separated by one of the major oceans. (Or, if two oceans, just less close then the other two)
  • 5b. A number of 3 continents of roughly the same area as Africa, two of which will be actually touch by same strip of land. (The distance of the third is dependent on the number of oceans)
  • 5c. A number of 3 continents of roughly the same area as Africa, two of which will be nearly be one continent ala Eurasia.
  • 5d. A number of 3 continent of roughly the same area as Africa, two of which will be nearly one continent and the third connected by a strip of land. (This normally implies two oceans)
  • 5e. A number of 3 continent of roughly the same area as Africa, all three of which will be connected to one another by thing strips of land in a line.
  • 5f. A number of 3 continent of roughly the same area as Africa, all three of which will be connected to one another by thing strips of land in a circle.
  • 6a. Make the continents in 5 a different size, like Asia.
  • 6b. Make the continents in 5 a different size, like Australia.
  • 7a. 3 continents the size of Australia spread out however.
  • 7b. 5 continents the size of Australia spread out however.
  • 7c. 10 continents the size of Australia spread out however. Normally implies no Africa sized ones.
  • 7d. Just 1 Australia please.
  • 8a. 3 continents the size of India spread out however.
  • 8b. 5 continents the size of India spread out however.
  • 8c. 10 continents the size of India spread out however. Normally implies no Africa sized ones.
  • 8d. Just 1 India please.
  • 9a. A dozen island chains the size of Japan.
  • 9b. Hundreds of island chains the size of Japan.
  • 9c. 100+12=112, 112/2=56. 56 island chains the size of Japan.
  • 10. Lord knows how many smaller islands just... everywhere.
  • 11a. Make the planet bigger but having less density so it somehow has the same gravity. That way we can fit like all the continents we want.
  • 11b. Let's go crazy and say it has more gravity.
  • 12. Okay, hear me out, hear me out. Let's take Earth, ok? Earth, listen to me, Earth and then, are you listening?, and then we flip it upside down. Viola.

My preference is for something along these lines.

  • The Spine is fucking huge. It's about the size of Asia, but stretched out. It looks like, well, a spine. It has Ley Nodes coming out the wazoo all around it. There are also smaller islands around its perimeter, especially around the equator and the north pole, but they are much smaller.

  • The Broken Lands are an island chain. The largest island (Iropa) is about the size of India, and two (three?) other islands are about the size of Australia. These make sort of a triangle, if you look at them a certain way, with Iropa being at the top. Three massive Ley Lines form a literal triangle there. Other islands of varying (but significantly smaller) sizes circle around and cram between them.

  • The Ocean is massive, about as big as all the oceans of Earth, but with fewer continents in the way. (This is not to say that there is less total land, it actually roughly evens out, it's just that the land in Sceal is more concentrated than on Earth.)

The only big problem I had with that [up] is that Iropa is located in the Souther equator, it'd be at the bottom.

Edit: Well, I had other problems with it, that's just a nit pick.

Ah right.

Okay, other way around. It's an upside down triangle. Like a boss.

Also, much more pointy than necessary. So that they kind of look like a face, and Iropa is the badass beard.

[up][up][up][up]Not all of them are mutually exclusive. In fact, I only tried grouping the mutually exclusive ones together.

Fiery Hair Explosion
Anywho, my vote: 1a, 2b, 4, 5a or 5b or 5c, 6a for an 11 scenario, 7a (Or 7b for an 11 scenario), 8b (Or 8c for an 11 scenario), 9b, 10 and 11a.

And I propose that the Broken Lands be all shaped as to fit together with each other like a puzzle, as Pangaea to our continents, whereas the New Lands do not fit in this puzzle at all.

Agreed with that part. The Broken Lands are literally broken, not figuratively.

Still looking over the Extremely Long List of Longness.

Also, I propose this: If we do 11a, then the Old Lands are broken because they cracked apart when the world expanded. Something happened very, very, very long ago, possibly connected to the cracking of dimensional barrier between the Material and the Aether, before the rise of humanoid life.

The planet's core is still intact, and still compressed boiling mess of molten iron, kept in the very center and acting as some kind of subterranean sun.

1b, 2c, 9a for me.

And I propose the Broken Lands were shattered by the battle between The Champion of the Gods and the Dark Mage.

I like the Hollow World thing, though.

Black Empire Facts #5

Zeledo, the Black Princess

A largely enigmatic figure, all that is known of her is one very huge fact: She is Hrod's daughter and heir-apparent. She was of course fathered and born when he was the Black Prince and so obviously she is very old. Her few appearances suggest that she has achieved longevity by means outside her father did but by what no one is sure, just like none are sure of her maternity. It was made very clear by Hrod that she is his daughter and that he has groomed her to be his replacement should the need ever arise.

He has admitted that although he had several children with several women in life, he never expected any of them to replace him but Zeledo is the only one who is still alive after all this time and so he relented that of his own volition. No one much thinks of the fact though, since many people seem to regard Hrod as a permanent fixture and Zeledo as little more that an interesting trivia.

She spends half her time in the borders of the Black Empire and the other half anywhere else. She apparently has some form of limited shape shifting, mostly changing her age, appearing either as an old woman or young, although always possessing light brown skin and red-brown hair and shocking turquoise eyes. She is described as a grim and humorless woman as opposed to the darkly jovial Emperor. She rarely speaks but possesses a form of mind speech by which she may make her will known with a glance. The agendas she pursue are unknown, although it is highly likely she at least sometimes has done things at the behest of her father.

Hedegemony, the Soul of the Black Throne

At some point 750 years ago, their was a great deal of political talk in which the Black Emperor was instead referred to by his seat of power in literal term of his throne. This slight anthropomorphism of the Black Throne created only the slightest Aetherial nexus upon it but by merest chance caught the attention of a spirit that took to inhabiting it.

Hedegemony manifests in the form of a young man of the Dark Lands, with red-purple eyes, purple black skin and shocking red-orange hair worn short and slicked back. Hrod does not confide this to anyone, but Hedegemony looks exactly as he did when he was young. He wear black armor like Hrod and takes to wearing duplicates of the weapons welded to the back of the physical throne to his own back.

Hrod has shown nothing but kindness to Hedgemony when he discovered the young spirit but he has also taking to using him for several purposes when and as he sees fit too. For one, Hedgemony is used as Hrod's regent for whenever Hrod must be away. Being them manifestation of Hrod's throne, he is intrinsically tied to its purpose and what it represents, so his life is the power of the throne and he knows that power lies within Hrod, so he has reasons of survival to be loyal. Therefore he is always manifested whenever Hrod leaves the throne to sit in it himself and is most comfortable running things from there. If Hrod is one the throne though or to be on it soon, he prefer to demanifest.

Second, he has been used to take the edge of the influence of the Hrod Cults that have sprung up. Hrod has indirectly influence them to view Hedegemony as a holy figure, thus turning a portion of the worship toward the spirit and Hedegemony is only grateful for this. (It is also known he's done the same thing to his daughter). Hedegemony is eager and energetic, always willing to please Hrod who he view as a father figure. Unbeknowst, Hrod has adopted him as such too and Hedegemony is the second in-line to truly inherit the throne in case anything happens to Zeledo.

Plot Hooks: Turns out Zeledo is power hungry enough to try to dispose of her father. Turns out, Hedegemony yearns so much for the singular love of his father he's willing to do away with his 'sister'. Turns out, neither are all that interested in disposing anybody but each have differing view points then their father and their are some parties who would be interested in having one of them calling the shots instead. Turns out, the Black Throne has been stolen and Hedegemony has been kidnapped... again.

Hrod Cults

A movement founded by one of Hrod's hyena-folk who came with him and still headed by her descendants. Hrod is himself more baffled and annoyed by it but allows its continued existence. He officially forbids its spread outside his borders but in reality he will not find himself not using a tool when it presents itself and only makes a token effort to stop it. His worshippers are made up of Beast-Folk, of those descendant of his creations and even others, general order worshipers as a recognized living saint of various Celestial Gods of Order and also as a saint of the God of Conquest.

Their is enough worship focused on him despite the steps he has taken otherwise to catapult him into Terrestrial Godhood but so far he has resisted for several reasons. One is personal, as he fears the loss of self that may come with it. The other is political, as he fears the response and measures his rivals will take if he gains that level of power. However, he keeps the option in mind.

"In Case Of Emergency: Become God." - Hrod

The Black Heart

Hrod's phylactery that houses his soul, the dagger that pierced he pierce his own heart with to attain immortality, which he openly carries as a symbol of his office. Their are those who speculate it is a fake, that he would never carry his unlifeline so openly. The truth of the matter is, their are pros and cons to carrying the thing on him. One one hand, their are some pretty bitchin' pieces of magic he could possibly achieve with a dagger that houses his soul and it may be that he's more comfortable being able to keep an eye on the damn thing. On the other hand, maybe he'd hide it somewhere behind so many protective wards, booby traps and vine slimes that the amount of power it would take to get to it would be pretty horrendous.

Metric System

A sylvan called Metr invented a system of naming units of measurement that involved taking the base measurements, foots and stones and adding a dead language prefix to it to denote greater or smaller units. This is called the Metric System.
