The Little Cosmos


WORLD GUIDE


Click each country to see the characters who live there. Click each race to see the characters of that race.

MOUNTAIN KINGDOM
Cut down the center by the Sea of the Skull, crisscrossed with man-made and natural water-ways and blanketed in green, the Mountain Kingdom is home to the Aureates, one of the oldest civilizations in the world. For nearly two millenia, their rulers have been overshadowed by the Ivory Warlocks, a race of pale giants who, under the direction of their ancient father, Primus, learned to harness the power of the stars.
In recent times heavy taxation, poor distribution of resources, disorganized leadership and tension between the Aureate kings their Ivory counterparts has forced a wave of refugees into the neighboring Crescent Kingdom, even as Primus threatens to wage war against it.

CRESCENT KINGDOM
Ravaged by cycles of flooding, heat, and drought, the Crescent Kingdom is none the less home to some of the most fertile forests in the world, splendid with life and color during the spring and summer months. The land is ruled by the Jets, a people who have, in ancient times, driven out all before them, and whose culture is as opulent and unforgiving as the land. At present, they find the Crescent inundated by Aureates from the Mountain Kingdom, welcomed by the Jet leadership but often not by the Jets themselves. Aureate influence prompts the evolution of Jet culture, leading to the mixing of cherished Jet lineages with Aureate blood, and giving birth to a racial hierarchy and frequently to violence.

IRON VALLEY
Iron Valley exists in a separate era, on another planet from the other two kingdoms. Shrouded in mist and hedged in on every side by forbidding mountain ranges, Iron Valley is home to a proud race of warriors called the Ferric. For centuries, their kings have been the soul and the jewel of their nation, the fathers of their culture and the highest general of their armies. But now, under the unsteady leadership of the volatile and vindictive King Rex, the fabric of their culture is threatened by anarchy as they struggle to retain their national identity without being destroyed by their own king.

October
Half warlock and half royal blood, October occupies a hitherto undefined place in society. The blood of his mother Raven makes him heir to the throne of the Mountain Kingdom, but it also taints him, making him impure as a warlock. Although the Ivory Warlocks have no defined ruling power, they are none the less imposing figures in the political landscape; pale as their name implies and standing an average of 7' tall, they are called the sons of the moon, said to have harnessed the power of the stars. They are the spiritual leaders of the Mountain Kingdom, the high priests to whom it must pay tribute.The Royal Family, on the other hand, is Aureate, one of the the races of lower men, and though they hold the formal political power in the kingdom, they depend on the warlocks to bring the seasons in their time and to bolster the power of the armies against foreign invasion.
Many say October's Royal blood will make him unable to bear the power of a warlock, and that the attempt to do so will drive him mad or even kill him. At the behest of his father Primus, however, he was brought up in the power of the stars from a young age, the same as any other Ivory Warlock. 
How long he will be able to bear that power remains to be seen.

Napalm
Embroidery on the collar is of a style that is very common in high quality Jet fashion, especially among the rich. Wearing open flowers, either real flowers or flower decorations, signal sexual maturity and proclivity. The necklace is a military-style piece, which is indicated by the death/bones motiff.

Napalm enters the military during the Festival of War, a prestigious tricentennial event wherein people from all over the Crescent Kingdom compete for positions in the powerful Crescent Military. The Festival of War can last over three decades, and offers the potential for anyone talented in the arts of war to redefine their social status; even a halfblood with no connections of any sort, lacking even a surname, can make his fortune here if he plays his cards right.
