A Land of Fantasy and Elemental Magic is falling into chaos from Ancient Sumerian interference.
What has happened to the magical world?
Ersetu, it is a land of wonders in sorcery, spells, and weaving of elemental magics. These abilities come from the Essence, an energy stored in all things. For eons these abilities in the people of the realms went unchecked and chaos reigned. Multitudes of wars were fought over hundreds of generations and the toll on the lands was disastrous. Much of the world became poisoned and unlivable. People and magical creatures were dying off and all of Ersetu was on the verge of collapse.
The magical races come together…
A meeting of the lands great races was arranged to barter peace; it was decided that the only way to create a lasting truce was to bring about balance of the Essence. The Great Council was created with members of these seven main races to establish a plan for the balance. And so it was this council that devised the blending, a cross breeding of the races and thus combinations of the powers they each possessed. Through this program, the blended peoples could create offspring who could harness all the seven powers and forge a balance in the land to restore what had been devastated.
A sacrifice is made…
Two altars of power were constructed to represent both chaos and creation. Chaos altar, black as pitch, was made of dragon glass from the depths of Hell’s Mouth, land of the Drakkians. The Altar of Creation, carved from the purest of clear crystal from the mystic caves of Mount Aris high above the clouds in the Orenthal Mountains. Upon the completion of these altars, two zealots tapped the essence and poured power into the altars until the life force drained from them. Their sacrifice created the great balance, Lal-Li Mah, and allowed the lands to begin repairing millennia of destruction, bringing about a new era of peace and prosperity.
Prejudice causes the races to split…
After a few generations however, disdain and open prejudices of the blended race peoples turned to persecution. The “purists” sought to rid the lands of those with blended blood. These purists being of only single race blood lines feared those of mixed blood because of the abilities in Essence they possessed, however they used fear of a new unbalance to drive others to begin rounding up the abominations and putting them to death for the greater good. This was the great purification called, Sikil Mah.
Order is established under the rule of chaos…
Those who managed to escape notice left the healed lands of Aurderia and call themselves the forsaken. Some still lived among the realms of Aurderia but only because they could blend in and hide their powers or were protected by sympathizers and family. The Great Council forbade use of the Essence without sanction and schools were established for proper education until finally the Essence Academy was created in the capital city New Draven.
And so it was for hundreds of years… until Chaos was set loose upon the land by lust for power.
The balance between good and evil is a perilous thing. This is especially true for the world of Ersetu. Chaos has begun to manifest upon the lands threatening to tear the world apart again. Three children of seven elemental magic bloodlines are born to be instruments of change in the balance, but their roles are each different in this fantasy quest series.
