    Should Anaxagore make a 'foolish decision', it will be in character and he'll just have to live with it or not. So there's that. :p

    Well, that escalated quickly. :p

    In this scenario at this given point in time:

    Cretaus = Likely to make a wise decision
    Kaynus = Not

    Forgive the double post and the ramble below. (Although I know @greyjedi125 likes my rambles for some reason...;))

    Am I going too fast with the lore info?

    Some more stuff I want to add but I don't wanna overwhelm you guys.

    Sea "elves", creation myths and Essatia (Cretaus' 'Homeland') being the next things on the agenda.
    (Thinking about doing a piece on sword techniques but I am not well versed so need to do some research first...hmmm...if anyone wants to educate me I would not be opposed...[face_laugh])

    Also putting a pause on updating as Roger and Elizabeth for now. Probably will do one as Sonus though.

    Also a quick clarification when it comes to natures and magic. They aren't strictly defined, and natures can 'feed' into each other where the lines become blurred a little. For instance Elizabeth using a lot of teleportation despite her 'origin nature' (ah took me too long to come up with a more succinct term) being fire.

    Also certain spells fall into multiple natures. I recall this novel I read that feature elemental magic and towards the end they explain about how all elements are equal giving the example of making a flower bloom. What magic did you use to make it bloom? The earth to give it mineral and nutrients, water to give it...water, fire in the form of the sun to give it energy or air to give it oxygen. The end result is the same.

    What I'm trying to say is different magics, while their mechanics are different, achieve a similar result. (For instance all elemental natures have an intrinsic 'healing' factor to them) Elizabeth turns herself into fire and move around by multiplying the flame. So it isn't exactly teleportation but for all tense and purposes it is. (Other than long ranged stuff)

    Another example with summoning vs creating elementals. Summoners well summon the elemental, calling to forth from some talisman, or where they have stored it previously. As opposed to Esenma who using her breath to create the elemental. Same end result, different process.

    Make sense?

    Hope everyone is having as much fun as I am! :)

    Awesome! I did a quick google of what you mentioned in the PM and became fascinated. I would love to have a crash course if you are willing....[face_laugh]. I'll be able to write Roger (and the rest of the Knights) better that way. :)

    All I know is two semesters of fencing, and a few dozen lore dives into Star Wars which is a pseudo mash. . .not sure how helpful those would be :p

    Alright, that Magic explanation with the magic and giving two different schools for the same result is spot on! It now clicks for me, thank you!

    Also, more lore the better, I may not reference for a bit, but I am a bit of a lore junkie.

    Alright... update is up... as well as two new kingdoms and two new races. That is it for the 'widely known' races I think.

    @greyjedi125 Love the little synopsis lol...

    Also over 100 posts! W00T!!! W00T!!!

    EDIT: I added a little bit to the end that I missed in the copy paste from my word doc. Good thing I noticed before the edit expired. So if you have read it already please go reread. Mainly concerns Esenma but...well...you'll see
