SPRING

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: Calm and generally cool. Thunderstorms and heavy showers are not uncommon, and there is also a chance of snow until late in the season.

Soto: Trees begin to bud and the snow begins to melt, which may cause minor flooding. Although temperatures increase, snowfall early in the season is not uncommon. Low-lying plants grow while the tree cover isn't too dense.

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.

    The Fall of the Gods; And subsequent legends

    And then she was gone, her hips swinging as the knives jostled her thighs, passing by guards with her head held high, a haughty smile upon her lips.

    The Fall of the Gods
    When the gods first arrived in Elenlond, their power was in full bloom. Having survived the devastating and emotional implosion of Mianor, Elenlond was theirs to command, a place where their magic could cast new roots. And, in the years following the loss of their original lands in favour of newer lands, they reigned well, despite the animosity that emanated from those who had been forced to become subject to them. Yet, despite this, neither status nor power would last forever.

    The magic that the immortals possessed was, invariably, bound to Mianor, as that is where it originated. It was there that they were first deities, and it was there where that magic belonged, where that power yearned to be. As a consequence, the power of the deities began to diminish over time, growing steadily weaker, the roots that it had endeavoured to spread flinching away from the alien soil. It sought Mianor’s soil, the soil that it knew and loved. While many of the gods may not have noticed this, some did; some chose to ignore it or rebel against it, while others embraced it. Others still were completely oblivious. As this power slowly began to slip away, there were massive changes in the world, as if it had begun to awaken. As each deity fell in turn, the land began to change, reverting to the way it had been long before their arrival. Although these lands had, for the most part, retained their ethnic identities and cultures, they had been completely dominated by the men and women they resented, and as soon as those men and women had suddenly ‘vanished’ from the political scene and they were dominated no more, the original boundaries of the nations became clear once again. The only deity who retained her status was Evona, Goddess of Chaos. She reigns over Esiria, worshipped by its inhabitants, a ghostly figure in the background. Chaos was the only element that did not suffer a loss of power, the reasons for this unknown. Esiria continues to worship her willingly, and in so doing, has completely isolated itself from the rest of the world.

    By the time 0 AR (After Restoration) came, all but Evona had fallen, and all of Soare's nations had reasserted their sovereignty.

    The gods walk among mortals now, mortals themselves. They can be anything – a healer, a warrior, a chef or a cult leader – but they are no different from the people that which surround them. Only those who had been wholly devoted to the deities may recognize them at first glance – more may recognize them by name, but the odds are unlikely. It is just yet another change within Elenlond, another story added to the billions more that already exist.

    Fallen Mianorite Gods and Goddesses
    Below is a list of the last-known gods and goddesses who either came directly from Mianor after its implosion, or who ascended shortly thereafter, before falling because Mianor's magic was immensely unstable in Elenlond. The element each one presided over is in parentheses. A handful of these former deities still walk Elenlond's soil, largely forgotten but not lost to oblivion like their brethren.

    *Evona technically never fell. Instead, her power blossomed and transformed itself, adapting to Elenlond's native magic. She currently resides as the only goddess of Esiria, the eastern continent of Elenlond that is both in isolation and inaccessible to most.
