Introduction

HISTORY
In the beginning, a single, all-powerful God stood in the darkness. This God, named Naraos, created the universe. He created the world with his own power, and divided it among deities he created. These deities would protect what he had created from themselves, and help keep the natural order of the world in harmony. As a result of this massive exertion of power, he had nothing left of his original self. All that was left of him was the power that he divided and gave to the deities.
The deities he created were all representing an aspect existent in the world, and they were all in charge of managing that concept and making sure it didn’t fall to ruin. All of them were of equal power, only overpowering one another when it came to the aspects in which they guarded and had lordship over.

Of course, where there is light, there is darkness. The universe is under constant assault by Aepia, the Dark Deity who continuously creates abominations to attack various places. He relentlessly tries to defeat the other, moral deities, and will not stop until he does. A great war erupted between them which spanned the entire planet for a millennia. The conflict sparked something on the new planet, it started the very first life on earth. As the war raged, life evolved on the planet until humanity took over. The war finally ended when Aepia was locked up in the core of the earth, it’s influence was downgraded but not gone, the earth would have monsters in places all over. It was then that the gods informed the humans that because of this threat that they would be rewarded and could live peacefully if they fought off the monster menace.

MANA ORE
Image

Mana ore is a powerful substance and a driving material on Earth. It comes in crystal or raw ore form naturally but is often refined into gemstone or ingots for commercial and military uses. It comes in many varieties and is characterized by it's versatility and capability to be modified.
Mana Ore originates when Humanity was introduced to the gods after the end of the Millennium war. The gods told humans to use the ore to help fight the monsters created by the Dark god Aepia.
Over the years humanity has found many uses for this miracle substance, using it for fuel, weaponry, medicine, etc. The use of this material has caused humanity be 1,000 years ahead of it's time and as such are more technologically advanced. Because of it's value and varied uses there is a high demand on the black market and is a major trade among the seedy underbelly of the major cities.

TYPES

Fire Ore
Fire Ore is a naturally occurring red crystal and has properties of the element of fire. Raw ore is extremely hot to the touch and must be handled with proper equipment, refined ore is noted for it's uses in ammunition as incendiary rounds, fuel for normally coal fed machines and cooking. No known variations exist for this ore as of now.

Water Ore
Water Ore is a naturally occurring blue crystal and has properties of the element of water. Raw ore on it's own is often found to be soaked and is infact often found in underwater locations. When used properly it can generate enough water to last a village for years. It is commonly used to supply water, create hydroelectricity and gardening.

Earth Ore
Earth ore is a naturally occurring brown crystal and has properties of the element of earth. Raw ore on it's own is very rough and can be found anywhere but primarily underground. It has uses that range from creating dirt and stone to morphing the terrain. It has commercial use as a terraforming device or to supply soil for gardening. In addition to this it can be refined into a metallic substance.

Wind Ore
Wind ore is a naturally occurring clear crystal and has properties of the element of wind. Raw ore on it's own has almost no texture, like actual wind and can be found anywhere. It has uses as artificial wind and has common uses as fans, energy for wind turbines and A/C's

Green/Healing Ore
Healing ore is an artificial green crystal developed by medical scientists in an attempt to revolutionize medicine and they succeeded. Healing ore causes minor wounds to close instantly and major wounds to heal in minutes. They are common in hospitals and other such places.

Electric Ore
Electric ore is a naturally occurring yellow crystal and has the properties of electricity, touching this crystal is extremely dangerous as it is capable of discharges. It has uses as a power source for many things such as vehicles, mechs and common household items.

Ice Ore
Ice ore is an artificially created crystal made by modifying Water Ore. it is extremely cold to the touch. It is commonly used for refrigerative purposes.

Psychic Ore
Psychic Ore is an artificially created purple ore that grants people with psychic powers. Approximately a week of exposure either in utero or not will turn people into psychics permanently and eliminating the need to use ore to obtain powers.

CHARACTERISTICS
Mana ore is naturally in a solid crystal or ore in various locations, the shape of which is often clustered. Unused Mana Ore glows brightly and will fade when their charge runs out, in addition the color of the ore is the key to knowing what kind it is and what it can do.
The size of the crystal determines how long it will stay charged before fading out, a crystal the size of a human palm will last a few hours at best while one the size of a boulder will last a few days.

The more intact a crystal is the more potent it's effects will be when used, which is why when harvested they are refined to be one solid shape such as in ingot or cut crystal form.


TECHNOLOGY & MILITARY
Image

Humanity has become technologically advanced 1,000 years earlier than expected due to the discovery and cultivation of mana ore. This has lead to numerous advancements in military use, each use has been divided into different divisions.

MILLENNIUM ARMY CORPS

The infantry which consists of soldiers wielding state of the art mana rifles which are very much alike to the real life battle rifles. The soldiers are outfitted with specialized suits to protect them from small arms fire and a medium tolerance to enemy mana ore.

The suits in question are highly specialized for ground combat, being made from refined brown mana ore. The helmets having an AI interface to help the soldier adapt to pathfinding with his weapon, a soldier rarely misses.

A cooling system is circulated through the suit to prevent overheating and is regularly pumped with liquid blue mana to keep the suit at room temperature.

Sometimes Golems are brought in for the heavy duty jobs as they lack the organic faults humans have.

MILLENNIUM ENGINEERING DIVISION

The engineers are workers who supply the soldiers with their weapons and help keep them in peak condition. Unlike the soldiers they tend to stay out of the battlefield but are never too far away. They utilize the advanced tech at their disposal to repair damaged weapons, armor, etc. They are often charged with developing weaponry should a new threat arise. They on occasion also create golems to aid with tasks that are not possible for a human to do.

MEDICAL CORP OF THE MILLENNIUM

The medics are trained doctors who tend to stay near the battlefield but just out of reach so as to not be harmed themselves. They are usually found in outposts where injured soldiers are brought in to be healed. Green mana is often a good healing object but some wounds require more so they are trained to handle it normally in the case they run out of ore.

THE MILLENNIUM ANIMAL TRAINING BATALLION

The battallion uses captured dangerous animals to be trained for various tasks such as tracking, air combat, etc. These individuals are often veterinarians and zoologists who understand how and why an animal behaves in a way and can utilize it for militaristic purposes.

MILLENNIUM ARTILLERY DIVISION

When the infantry doesn't have enough firepower they often turn to the artillery which uses mana cannons with enough destructive force to level a small building.


RACES
HUMANS
The very first humanoid race to exist on earth, they are gifted with sentience and a higher intelligence than other non-sentient animals. They were created during the Millennium war as a spark landed on the planet and merged with the soil, springing forth the very first colony. They were mostly unaware of the war in the cosmos and so thrived on their own, when the gods introduced themselves they were wary at first but then became a prosperous society when mana was introduced.

MAGI
The Magi are no different to humans aside from one major skill they possess: They can utilize magic without the assistance of technology or raw crystals. The magi are a somewhat common race not long after the introduction of mana ore, having been born from sufficient exposure to raw mana ore. They are somewhat alienated because of their nature to channel magic and some turn to criminal life because of mistreatment, prompting the use of high level technology just to be able to keep them down. A small society of Magi exists just for them and a school for them was made to keep them safe from alienation, able to keep to themselves.

ELVES
The elves are the result of Magi breeding with humans, the only major physiological differences much like the Magi is the ability to naturally channel magic and in addition they possess longer ears, because of this they have better hearing than most humans. Much like the Magi they are also alienated because of their appearance and the ability to use magic though their steely confidence keeps them strong.

SAURIAN
The Saurians are a reptilian race that were descended from a species of monster created by Aepius, after the entrapment of the dark god they began an evolution that caused them to adopt a humanoid stance along with human intelligence. Their culture is almost no different from humanities aside from nesting due to them laying eggs to reproduce. Unlike actual reptiles they rear their young and guard their eggs with utmost ferocity, and like the Magi they have a natural capacity for magic though to a lesser degree. The real strength of the Saurians is their animal adaptations such as gills to breath underwater and sharp teeth and claws, and their tails serve as a counterweight and gives them great balance. Just like reptiles they also are weaker in colder temperatures but not too much as they are merely more sluggish.

NYMPH
The Nymphs are a magical race that are primarily female and have powers that pertain to nature itself, often controlling plants. They reproduce at an alarming rate and are compatible with nearly any species, causing numerous hybrids. Because of this they tend to hide themselves in dense forest areas and rarely address people without good reason.

Re: The Millennium War

This looks super interesting!! I just have a few quick questions. I see for your character you used anime and I'd just like to know if that's what you prefer for this universe over using real people as a face, or are you indifferent about it? Also, is there any specified character application form or is yours a good template to follow?
