Magic was real in the world of Hermonia, It was the year 3550 of the 5th era and even in this time of steam machines, factories, rising nationalism and huge gaps between society classes, magic was still a real thing. Naturally like all things, magic was used for good but also for bad, the good things were the new invention in the hospitals and to help people, the bad things were that magic was used to invent new war machines and other horrific things. You would think that the Ministry of magic would try to keep magic secret for the ‘un-fits’ those who couldn’t use magic, but they did the opposite, the Ministry didn’t want to cause any unrest like it did in the middle ages when the “un-fits” hunted witches and those who could use magic, no they wanted everyone to work together. Although alot of people liked this also a few oppossed this idea, but nevertheless this collaboration worked and it all made this new industrial revolution possible.
The world of Hermonia is actually the name of the land mass where the 3 of the 4 lands are located, the other one is located on the Island of “Kin” But more about that later. The first land is called Mendrossa, after it’s capital city “Mendrossa”. the people here are really standing behind their current Emperor and the government here is an Autocrazy, almost dictatorship like, but not the bad kind, no this land was the most whealtiest, safest and industrious of them all. The government worked, the people were happy and resources were abundant, also the Ministry of Magic had their HQ in the capital.
The second land was Albion, also called after it’s capital city “Albion” the people here were ruled under a aristocratic regime that focused on Industry and knowledge, this land had also the largest library of all the lands combined. It’s scholars were revered and traveled the lands to give lectures in the universities. It’s mages were quite amazing but nothing compared to those from Mendrossa. The people here were also content and stood behind their leaders like a rock.
The land to the North was Erbor with their capital city being “Irikum”, It was home of the dwarfs and on the surface there were almost no cities as they had almost all their cities underground in the mountains, where their vast mines ran deep into the earth. The dwarfs were rich due to their minerals and strong warriors as they had the best blacksmiths of all the lands. Magic wise they only focused on earth magic and researching the earth. Their use of runes made them do great things, their minerals often contain hidden magic. Their rulling system were clans that had divided the land between the clan leaders. The dwarfs were harsh folk and stubborn as well.
The last land was Kin with it’s capital city of “Myol”, the people here were more shy and due to their issolation of the other lands they were more on themselves. The land was covered in forest which housed alot of old shrines guarded by magical creatures. The people here were excellent fighters and sword makers, their order and spirituality made them find peace with the environment. They had one leader, their shogun ruled everything as smaller lords ruled parts of the land under their shogun’s rule.
All the lands had magical creatures roaming freely through the woods, mountains, flatlands… The world was beautiful and diverse with also alot of hidden treasure.
(The map isn’t completely finished but it is for 90 percent, it still needs tweaking but besides the forests everything is on it. For this roleplay I recommend having the map with you. If you need more info about the land then please ask me.)
