Angkar: Dry season. Often sunny, but precipitation is rare. Humidity is low, some bodies of water may have dried up, and bushfires can occur. The rainforest sees evenly distributed rainfall throughout the season.

Ashoka: Desert: Cooler temperatures, although still relatively hot. Violent, heavy downpours following long dryspells. Jungle: Hot and humid with frequent, violent rainstorms.

Morrim: Cool, wet, and windy, rain is common, although snow is, on the whole, infrequent (there may, however, be some seemingly random snow storms) in the interior, and any snow that accumulates along the coast quickly disappears. Early in the season it is very stormy, wet, and windy, while the end of the season is characterized by less wind, less precipitation, and lower temperatures. Towards the mountains heavy snowfall is quite frequent and the temperatures drop significantly.

Soto: Covered in anywhere from a foot to four or five feet of snow, Soto is very cold. Windchills are common and can severely drop the temperature at times. Deciduous trees have no leaves while coniferous trees continue to bear needles. Slow or still bodies of water have frozen over.

WHAT IS ELENLOND?

Elenlond is an original free-form medieval fantasy RPG set on the continent of Soare and the Scattered Isles, which are located to the south in the Sea of Diverging Waters. The four chief nations of the western side of the world—Ashoka in northern Soare, Soto in western Soare, Morrim in eastern Soare, and Angkar, the largest of the Scattered Isles—continue to experience growth and prosperity since the fall of the Mianorite gods, although power struggles within the countries—or outside of them—continue to ensue.

  • CURRENT EVENTS

    Angkar: To honour the reinvigoration of the ancient city of Mondrágon, the majestic Queen Eulalia has permitted the opening of a Coliseum where people from around the world and all walks of life can test their combat skills against one another. Many have already done battle in search of honour, glory, prizes and money.

    Ashoka: In an otherwise peaceful times, Ashokans are beset with the relatively minor inconveniences of wandering undead and occasionally-aggressive giant rock worms. There has also been some controversy over the recent re-legalisation of human sacrifice.

    Morrim: Rumour has it that Emperor Leofric de Hollemark is mustering forces for a war. Though the threat from Soto’s forests has passed, the forces previously employed in watching the forest now linger at the border. Rumours also circulate of a small group that has been dispatched to make contact with the tribes of the Do’suul Mountains.

    Soto: The Sotoans have defeated the fey and liberated themselves from Méadaigh’s oppression! Preliminary efforts have been made at rebuilding the city of Madrid, which had been captured at the beginning of the war. However, the Sotoans are hindered from recovery famine. Méadaigh’s magic caused summer to persist in the Erth’netora Forest through the winter. Her power has been withdrawn and the plants die as if preparing for winter – even though it is now summer. The Sotoans must sustain off what food they can get, what creatures they can kill and what can be imported into the city from Morrim and Angkar.

    General consensus: The gender ratio is surprisingly balanced between male and female (this includes some transgender characters). This relative balance is something to strive for. The largest character age group is tied between those who are between 26-35 years old and those of an unknown age. Thus we encourage players to explore younger and older characters and people who actually know what age they are/. As would make sense for a general population, most of Elenlond seems to be comprised racially of humans and socially of commoners. Chaotic neutral is by far the most popular alignment, but the neutral to chaotic range is well-populated, especially on the good end. Of the characters with a known nationality, Morrimians are most common, but the nationalities section is more balanced than it had been in the past. In the nationality and age sections, unknown/unspecified are the second-most popular brackets.

    The most common sort of character here would be a human female Morrimian commoner who is unemployed. She is between the ages of 25-36 years old or else her age is unknown and her alignment is chaotic neutral. Her name begins with an S.

    The least common sort of character is, more or less, a chaotic evil yokai or reptilian that is of either both genders or an unknown gender and works as an entertainer while being a part of either the clergy or criminal classes. This being is either Esirian or from the Kaadian Way and is between 0-12 years old and they have either no name, multiple names or a name that starts with an X.

    • The Compendium is as accurate as we can make it, as it is updated every time a new character is added and re-made every time we have an activity check. It is designed designed to give you an opportunity to see what sorts of trends are on Elenlond and to create characters appropriately. You do not have to create a character that goes against the norm, although you are free to do so - and are encouraged to.
