Magical and Non-Magical Energies of the World
By Rollick Fraw
Written: 3159 UES
The Weave: This mythical energy is what magicians from the wilds claim is the source of their power. They claim, they can manipulate these imaginary strands of energy into whatever they want, creating effects of light and sound.
Chaotic Zones: These areas have a strong effect on magical energies causing this weave to overlap itself making it difficult for a caster of spells to properly wield their unsightly magic. In most cases, these spells of theirs tend to go astray or create some other unwanted affect.
These energies are natural to the world and able to be harnessed by those with the proper intelligence. These natural energies can be created through alchemy, clockworks or through energy crystals to power all manner of creations that are beneficial to all humankind. These natrual energies are not affected by these so called chaos zones.
The World's Great Anomalies
By Keelan Framsin
Written: 2223 UES
One of the greatest of mysterious anomalies in our world has to be the Ocean Vale; a great wall of electrically charged fog that covers an area of the world nearly the size of the Guthen continent itself and completely domes that area. Many have attempted to navigate through it, and claim they were whisked across the globe, while adventurers that are more reputable simply vanished. Though many argue about what the Ocean Vale can possibly be, the obvious answer is a simple one, this is a gateway into the elemental plane of water, and the electrical fog holds back the waters and allowing one-way passage into that plane.
The Alaster people, although appear to be dwarves, halfings and half-orc are truly unique. These peoples share no history or relations with any of the races they have been named for, except for appearance. These people have grown to be hardier and more resistant to the elements then the rest of us. For this reason it is a forgone conclusion; their roots are from the elemental planes. Perhaps they came from the planes of earth and fire and adapted to this world, or even they are the mating between real people and elementals. Either way these beings should be called elementals and not associated with the human or demi-human races.
It has been rumored for several centuries that the race of beings called Orrfit are or were at one time of the Orc race. A demon-dragon or some such creature transformed them into what we now call Orrfit. By their appearance, dark cracked skin, that appears more like chard flesh than true skin, with hair that is crusted in earth and their fiery red eyes, can lead us to a single conclusion. These beings are related to the Alaster Elemental Demi-Humans. I would suspect they are an offshoot of the Alaster Elemental Orcs.

In the beginning this world of ours was savage and evil. Yoncie Frellith of the first order was guided to this world to cleanse it of its evil, which he accomplished. He brought peace and tranquility to this world by destroying or running off the monstrous and evil creatures that defiled it. Peace rang supreme until the others found it. Elves, dwarves, lizard people and abominations arrived in masses bringing their greed, their evil, their false gods and barbaric ways to the world. Of course with so much evil flowing in from only the gods know here wars started between them, the evil infected everything, causing much strife, causing good people to do bad things. The evil gave them no choice, the goodly folk of the light had to stand up against the evil that was attempting to retake this sacred world. Alas the evil ran to deep, corrupted to many pure hearts. The remaining pure souls had to flee the sacred world but vowed to return to purge the evil and return the world back to its natural state.
From those that remained behind, empires were formed and history forgotten by many, or corrupted by the elves and their scrolls of lies, half-truths and fictional stories. But out of this chaos and darkness came to this world the light that is the Unuche Empire, the only source of true purity left in this world. And it remained pure, until a brother was corrupted and consorted with elves; he broke from the empire and raged war upon his sister. Upon his death he gave the south to his four bastard sons to further spread corruption and keep the people of the light divided and weak. Curse those four kings to the south and curse their kingdoms. The Unuche Empire will reign, it will endure, it will survive until the light returns!
