A blue glow illuminates the atmosphere as each day begins with a rising blue sun. A yellow sun follows behind and gives chase, only to come up short every evening as the horizon gives way to radiant blue hues.


Beneath the two suns dance of color across the skies, you find a world that has run out of magic. A council now manages the small traces of magic that remain in the world. The leaders have learned a way to harness the power from great elementals and create stones from that power they can use in place of magic.


Over time, the lack of real magic has taken a toll on the lands and they are spreading out looking to find a way to cultivate their land again and restore it's vitality.


With these stones they are harnessing, technology has boomed because sources of magic are now itemized instead of harnessed by individuals. Think steampunk, but with ranges of powerful stones instead of steam.

Verin

A dark city, build of rock and iron, known for its slavery. This city smells of death and fire, the sounds of muffled screaming and clanking of hammers and chains fill the air.

The city is built into three circular districts Lom (the outermost district), Gol (inner district), and Su (floating castle district).

Lom, the outermost district of Verin, is the docking station for ships and is where most of the Verin’s trade and production happens. Inhabited by the lesser races of goblins, half orcs, humans, and dwarves - they maintain day to day duties to keep the city up and running. This area is constantly under watch from security.

Gol, the central district of Verin, houses the ministry and security of the city. All city matters and exploration plans are decided here. The ministry is comprised of The Masters, 5 members: Ved (Black), Bii (Blue), Graag (Green), Sahqo (Red), and Sot (White). The district itself consists mostly of elves, noble humans and half elves, the district of Gol is sectioned by subraces outside of noble standard. A marketing district can also be found here, near the lush gardens of Varin.

Su, the castle in the sky, is built of white rock and stands as a blinding beacon above the city of black. At the first light of day, the sun reflects off the giant floating structures giving off an appearance of glitter and warmth. The King reigns over the lands from this vantage. It’s said that he can move his flying kingdom to wherever he wishes, though no one has ever seen it leave Verin.
