The Species

  • Gil'ead is inhabited by 3 documented species. There is currently 1 species that has not yet been well-documented. One's strength is another's weakness, and one's weakness is another's strength. Choose wisely!
  • Certain Nations are exclusive or less accepting of some character types than others. The political landscape may also change as new leaders come and go.
  • Less useable categories of Magic or skills is not always clean-cut—some categories have many more items in them than others.

Short Summary

Being the oldest and most historically-dominant of species, Humans have widespread control over Gil'ead. Given their race's age, they not only have easily the largest population, military and political experience compounded, but have the most diverse societies of all species put together and, due to this fact, there are a great many human nations and settlements scattered around the world. With their extensive Magic and scientific understanding of it, Humans have the highest density of advancement and discovery in new ways to make this universal force of Gil'ead form into many distinguishable powers.

They adhere somewhat tightly to medieval standard in monarchical societies, though there are naturally other smaller societies with varied cultures who have yet to be converted by larger, more imposing nations. Because of their sheer advancements in politics, society and philosophical thought, Human societies are often at war with themselves, attempting to conquer the minds of their own, more than they are with other species. What they lack in physical prowess when compared to the other species, they make up for in Magic quantity and quality. As a result to their age-long meddling with Magic, however, they are the largest contributors to the effects that overuse of the element has on the world.

Old Magic

Short Summary

Widely known for their likeness to the Old Gods, the Wolves of Gil'ead are thought to have originated not long after the Old Gods returned their life force back to the earth. By the laws of conservation, the Dire are widely believed to be initially-asexual descendants by this process.

Thanks to The Conversion experiments, Dire have been given the ability to shift between their true forms to a Human figure completely at will. Some may find it easier than others, however, whether physically or morally. It is widely believed that the Demigods of Gil'ead have inherited Magic of the Old Gods themselves, termed Old Magic, and exclusively keep it in their blood. Old Magic are powerful skills that currently have not been imitated even by the Humans. This Magic is said to have been used to run the world and beyond, turning the sun and seasons both.

Short Summary

Having once been Human, the Eximius are now considered the most physically diverse race in Gil'ead by far. Often called "The Other," the Blanchard Projects they had been put through has had profound, varying effects on its subjects. A rushed, vitriolic experiment lacking humane and safe practice unlike what was given to the Dire, the science and Magic behind these experiments has resulted in Eximius ranging from healthy, human shapes to monstrous, primal entities. They were made by Man in retaliation, a perfected hunter of the Demigods, but their incredible power and unpredictability led to them being pushed out to the most hostile corners of Gil'ead, abandoned by their creators in a twist of hypocrisy.

With decreased Magic and Magic resistance, an intentional cripple by their creators, they are instead exceptionally physically powerful, quick, and have enhanced senses. Other than this, the rest of their attributes are unique and customizable. Eximius can modify their bodies with specific syringed concoctions, instantly giving themselves new abilities or swapping out old ones.

Because of the experiments' unpredictability, some Eximius suffer from varying states of Madness, a side effect of the experiments that leaves them on the fine line between Human and Monster.
