Wenggium's History


Written by FirethornDragon

Wenggium was founded in 1300 F.M. (Before Magic). The sport was then played without magic, and they usually played out in nature like the forest or out in a meadow. The sport involves a team of four meetings another team consisting of four people. You wear a piece of fabric around your waist that is your flag. If you lose it to your opponents, you're out. You play on time and if the time runs out - you use an hourglass - one person from each team gets to decide the match in a duel. Whoever wins the duel wins the game.   In the beginning, because they didn't have magic, they were allowed to use weapons in the duel and the sport. You still get that as long as Melends don't use magic. It's either weapons or magic. Never both. The sport began to be played by Jahix Culture to train their younger ones for battle and was often played in Chaddo The school of the orcs. As the sport became more famous and popular, it spread across Aurin.   Now 759 E.M, the sport is played in the Arena in The City of Croydon at Felvale-EN school of magicians and Guardians and that's where they use magic. They play for the same reason that the Orc started playing the sport. To avoid one's abilities and to train skilled warriors and later also skilled magicians/guardians.   Wenggium was created by Torgan Wenggi with his best friend Ium Gosgo. They merged their names and created the word Wenggium. They quickly realized they needed more than two people to play and brought some other friends with them, forming two teams of four people. They divided the four players into one captain, a healer to take care of all the injuries in each team after the game, and a striker who will lead the attack first. And a defender who is responsible for protecting the other players while they play. And prevent the others on the team from taking their team members' flags. The striker is the fastest player and should be the most skilled at stealing flags from opponents. The captain leads the team and is responsible for ensuring that one's team wins and "survives."   They developed the sport from their training lessons where they wrestle with each other and are going to get their hands on a flag a sport. The teachers and principal of Chaddo liked their idea and drew it into their education. Since then, it has been a sport that all orcs learn to play within Chaddo and they also bet money on professional teams.   Just like some do down in Croydon in the Arena. Once a year they have a tournament in Croydon's Arena and every other one down in Chaddo. Then it is between international professional Wenggium teams that play for the title of World Champion. Sometimes schoolchildren's teams end up in the tournament. Everyone in Aurin is obsessed with the sport and travels from miles away just to watch the tournaments.

They even find it difficult to get an education in the Elves' school Uraelity and are usually forced to move from their home countries to live a normal life. They are allowed to live outside the cities and are frozen out from the rest of the elves. It is said that the family that gives birth to a fire magician is cursed - if they are elves. Something that Illiri Firestorm disagrees with. So she started a team of elves she met at The Magic Council's school Felvale. And when she gets back home, she tries to educate young elves who are fire magicians in Rahegos and show them that there is a future for a fire Crehe. And that even though you're a fire elf, you're still a real Crehe.
