Civilization and Culture


"Alright our story begins in the Era of Fear. In this Era there were monsters like the Mistlings and the Stormdigo's that hold everybody of the nine kingdoms. Although the nine kingdoms didn't exist back then, but you get the picture." Everyone nodded. "Well in the beginning of that Era our ancestors didn't have any magic to speak off. We were just humans, dropped in this dimension. We were not slaves, like the poor humans are now. But we will not cover that aspect of how wrong that is. At least not for now. Let's go back to that Era and the fact that we didn't have any magic. So easy to say, we were easy pray for those monsters. One night a group of humans, started to plea with the God of their world. But He has no power here, so one of the Gods answered the call. Which God well that is up for debate, one that is not important right now."
"Let just say, that the God gave them magic. So that they could defend themselves. The magic was not divided in four, different types of magic. No it was one kind, later the humans, now wizards, developed the four styles of magic we see to day. Elemental to control the elements, Necromancy to bring back the dead and to cure the wounded, and Lunar magic to kill."
"But there is a fifth type of magic." Jeffery said. "The wizards in Spegikhio are not using one of the types you just described." Andera nodded.
"That is a good argument. Those wizards are indeed not using the four types of magic. What they're using is called ancient magic, they need a spell to excess it. So it is the same type as we use, but only they need a magic spell to excess it, and we do not. This is because the magic has become a second nature for use, it is as normal as breathing the air. I do not know why they do not have this. So I will leave it there." Andera said, Jeffery tilted his head. Clearly he wanted to know more about that form of magic. Still her didn't say anything else. "Good where was I?" Andera asked herself. "O, yes the four types of magic."
"Good, you see that the four types of magic are in a perfect balans with each other. The Elemental magic has its count parts already in place. Fire is the opposite of water, and the same goes for earth and air. Necromancy and Lunar Magic didn't have that kind of luxury. Instead of having that balans inside their own magic, they need to seek it in each others. So where the Necromancy brings people back from the death and heals the sick and wounded. The Lunar magic is there to kill, and cause harm."
"But good, now we have the wizards, and they didn't think twice to use their new gift to slay the monsters. Which marks the end of the Era of Fear and the start of the Era of War. Where brother turns against brother. It is here that Wizards started to turn on each other, claiming that their type of magic is the best. They started to kill the once they thought were lesser than them, the Elemental Wizards started to kill the Necromancers. And the male wizards with Lunar magic started to kill the women with the same type of magic. Thinking that they were the only once to deserve the magic, because they were the stronger sex. They forced the women underground, and we never left. Not even when the Era of the Dragon Lords began."
