The World of Simmerca

The World of Simmerca

0 INK

Once it was plagued by carnage, stretching to all four corners of the globe; torn a part by the ravaging onslaught of Chaos. That was more than a hundred years ago. A new threat shall soon arise, who will be the heroes, the villains?

Introduction

Image

Simmerca is a land of wonders, filled with beauty beyond compare, adventure froth with danger, creatures of the most peculiar appearances. The possibilities are endless as they are imaginable. There are seven continents floating on the gigantic Ihym Ocean which was also spread out into four differently named sections. Going from smallest to largest;

Chideth is without a doubt the smallest continent, but still has a Kingdom calling it home. It consists of lush forests, and marshes, the coasts are dominated by fishing villages, and at the Strelios Peninsula sits the forth largest city in all of Simmerca, Iustrica.

The second smallest continent is Bakera, and is Chideth's older brother; as they are very close and during continental drift have never been too far from eachother, but as brothers quarrel have never been too close. Bakera sports a sahara known as the Withered Hinterlands, being very large and formidable it is a wonder how anyone could settle there. Nonetheless the Withered City has prospered, as have the villages in the swampy regions.

The third smallest continent in Simmerca is called, Clyuxica, located just east of the Uwera Meridian. This continent is desolate now, but legend has it was once home to the Eldest Dragon, Paraxalanth. It is littered with ruins, and wastelands; scorched by what was assumed dragons during the last great Dragon War which happened almost a millenia ago. Clyuxica is habitable, but due to it's ancient history no nations dare disturb whatever spirits may lay dormant there; of course many adventurers have traveled there and returned unscathed.

The middle sized continent and Native Home to elves, Treicrux, is tremendously dominated by vegetation. Wildlife thrives, mysterious beasts roam, and the Elves stay safe in the city of Synalone; the second largest city in Simmerca. Synalone is home to the Elven Queen, Essaerae Rathiain. Known to be the best crafters to utilize exotic metals, the Elves find many use to the native trees known as Fleizath. The bark as hard as obsidian, and even more difficult to shape, and very few even get to wield weapons or even tools crafted from them. Treicrux is in the western hemisphere along with the other larger continents.

The third largest continent is Mateon, inhabited by both Orcs and Giants who have since the conclusion of the Chaos War, fought over whom should control the majority of the continent. It has a mix of biomes, ranging from tundras, to arid deserts, to lush green forests stretching far as the eye can see. The Orc and Giant's ways of life are similar in that they don't construct large cities, but very large encampments and villages. The largest of the Orcs is Thim Kildihr, home to the Orc Warlord; Uram Xugha. The largest of the Giant's is Old Ruins, which as it sounds occupies old ruins; the Giant Oberjarl, Gaglath No-name resides here.

The second largest continent, Kalukiago, is the native home of all Dwarves. It's regions are mostly mountainous, with valleys inbetween; the third largest City in the world Koghbuldundar resides within the largest mountain in the world Khen Torum. The dwarven cities that inhabit Kalukiago have no one ruler, but are divided up among clans; however there is one 'Elder' that rules Koghbuldundar, and is deemed the wisest, and strongest of his time. The current Elder is, Bondrek Lightbender; he provides council to all other clans and to refuse an Elder's advice is said to be the reason why some clans go extinct. One of the most well known facts is that the Dwarves of Kalukiago produce the largest amount of raw ore for smelting and turning into useful equipment from weapons to tools, to wheels and siege weapons.

The final and largest continent, it's center located on the crosshairs of where the Meridian and Equator meet, is known as the 'All-Mother' as every other single continent is said to have been 'birthed' from it. The All-Mother is home to every race, the most dominant being the Humans which are the All-Mother's natives along with Orcs and Giants. The All-Mother is the largest land mass on Simmerca, stretching along the meridian while also large in width; it hosts every single biome that Simmerca can offer, and is able to reach both of Simmerca's magnetic poles. All-Mother is respectively home to the largest city in the world, that takes up more than four hundred miles of space; this city is dubbed Azoathium, ruled by a just and right king; High King Capriglione. Azoathium produces most of the continent's goods, it's surrounding farms extremely prosperous. Azoathium is simply a fief, while the largest there are others spread out across All-Mother, varying in size and strength; each ruled by a Baron of great value.

(I'm sorry if all of it isn't satisfactory, but I will be creating a Wiki on Simmerca and it's lore in a while; I'll be honest it might be a long while.)

Years ago, the land was wrought with chaos. Chaos intent on consuming the rest of the world. In truth all believed hope an inconvenient lie. From the civilized to the barbaric, fear spread like a wildfire that none could escape. The world of Simmerca, nigh of it's consumption as the last of the hope rested with an alliance between man, elf, dwarf, orc, giants, and all other manner of creatures; this alliance called the land of Araz Thorime home, and planned their rebellion from the city of Lorania. The delegated leaders of each race were as follows; for the humans of Margardia, Hyatt Ransden. Hyatt was, as the stories tell, a slightly stout man with rough features. He was admired by his peers, and sought after by many suitors. For the elves, Faraine Jastra. Faraine was a very beautiful woman, unmarried, and respected among her race as one of the best diplomats in Araz Thorime. The dwarves were commanded by Throggic the Braided One. Throggic was a massively built dwarf, growing muscles instead of height as all dwarves and very aggressive. His kinsmen revered him as one of the best metalworkers in all of Simmerca. The orcs swore their allegiance through, Gunaakt Bazur; a light forest green color skin, and bulging masculinity made him a perfect candidate, but he unlike much of his brethren was blessed with the mind of a scholar as well as the ferocity of a bear. The giants leader, was said to be the tallest of them all, and the most intelligent being among the court; as complimented by the other delegates. His name was Kibos. He was kind, and gentle; he feared for all races not just his own, and hesitated on orders that would endanger others.

Due to these awe inspiring individuals, aided by the combined might of a multicultural army more massive than any one could be on their own, the 'last' battle; the one that allowed you to be born as you are and not a spawn from the pits of the underworld. This battle is known as the 'Battle of the Ancestors'. The battle of the Ancestors showed each delegate at the head of their respective armies, clashing with the hordes of Chaos. When the smattering lances to grotesque flesh first began with the human horseman's charge they say fires erupted around the battlefield from the sheer hatred between the alliance and the Chaos. The battle raged on for three days straight, the Chaos' best Generals slain, but not without the alliance losing some as well. The names of Champions were born through their deaths during the battle, Bulgant the Horde Conquerer, Thormond the Beast Tamer, Nithenoel the Warrior Prince, and Krakami the Blade. Many more were named, but these four were the most memorable, as each were fundamental in the vanquishing of Kassorak. Kassorak was the leader of the Chaos' forces on the final charge. His defeat weakened Chaos greatly. It fueled the alliance's hope even more. With this battle won, the alliance began to fight back the dreaded Chaos hordes, until the reconquered half of the continent within five years. In the final year, of the greatest war known to us, on the final day of the last battle, the loudest cheer sounded out. We had one. Chaos was forced back into their underworld, the lands still suffering the war was rebuilt in the next hundred years, but it has also been five hundred years since the last stone was put back into palce. Most of all the heroes since then perished due to age, disease, and competition. Simmerca rests, undaunted; facing simple thieving, banditry, and the occasional dragon sighting. It rests.

Rule #1) All Roleplay guidelines are in effect here; I don't want to have to list all of them here. A true RP'er will know.

Rule #2) This rule is only #2 because second is the best; have fun. Don't make it an issue to post here, or to involve yourself. I am a very lenient person and understand the trials of real life.

Rule #3) Don't be mean to other people, okay? In RP it's great, it develops rivalries, and great stories; outside of RP it's just a nuisance. Who like's those?

Rule #4) The races of Simmerca are many, which is why I will allow the creation of new species for characters, as long as it is run by me and I get a sample. You wanna be a Griffon? Badass. You want to be a reference to another RP, maybe a Game, or movie? Cool. You want to be something stupid? Fine by me. If it effects the RP, or is purely to troll it will be disallowed.

Rule #5) This pertains more to the happenings in RP; when we get full up and running, I will have a numerous amount of locations set up as well. Now I want there to be diversity in the areas we roll, but I don't want all of our characters too spread out. Please pick a location that fits.

Rule #6) The last rule, and the most important of all. Have fun. (See R2.)
