Disciplined and inquiring, with a big heart that yearns to heal, you belong in Arilyness!At the center of the sprawling city lay towering crystalline structures built around the skyward-climbing trunks of massive trees, with openings for their leafy branches to protrude. Within those towers, Curaeologists advanced their studies of medicines, comprised of learnings brought to them from the farthest reaches of Rendaraian civilization.Arilyness is led by a Chief Curaeologist who is confident in both her own capabilities and of others’ perceptions of them. She has a rather cavalier air about her, and when she speaks, she is succinct with her words. With the subtle curling of the corner of her mouth, wills are bent.
Water-loving masters of the high seas, people from Noda are fearless, boisterous, and bombastic!The Nodanaians are renowned skills as fisherfolk, kelp-farmers, shipwrights, and consignors who fearlessly navigate the wide waters of Rendaraia.The Aloreaen Ocean is vast and treacherous, but to the Nodanaians, it is a garden blooming with treasures.Their leader, the Kanai'Noda, is a terrifying yet inspiring character with a will stronger than tempered metal, yet her beauty and kindness—and boisterous laughter—are her legacies.
You’re a strong, proud, and competent Danrockaian.Fire is an untamable element, and one greatly feared, but the Danrockaians, over millennia, developed the knowledge—and the gall—to channel its might, despite its treachery.Danrock's smiths, carpenters, and engineers are famed for turning raw materials and staple necessities into finely crafted hard goods.When one had taken on so much responsibility that they were known throughout the Great Nations for their proficiency as a leader, they would be considered viable to succeed the current Acting Nation Leader, who had the right to choose from amongst those deemed worthy upon their resignation.
You’re a self-expressive artist at heart—you belong in Lithicus.Lithicus is the eponymous center of the arts throughout the Rendaraian Nations. It is not uncommon to hear one use the adjective “Lithiceshonne” when referring to a work as the height of esthetics. The most skilled, talented, and visionary of dancers, painters, minstrels, clothing makers, chefs, and martial artists from every cooperative Tribe travel to Lithicus to exchange techniques and add the stylings of their cultures to the institutes and museums there.The Matriarchy of Lithicus was peculiar when compared to the governance of most Nations in that there was a strong tendency for the daughter of a Grand-Matriarch to succeed her mother when she retired, almost as if the appointment was inherited like hair or eye color.
Both magical and a scholar? You're from Mithera.Great advances to the magical and spiritual arts were made in Mithera, and disciplines learned elsewhere were brought to the city to be taught to others. It was commonplace for the would-be Shaman of a cooperative Tribe to make the pilgrimage to the capital city to complete their studies. Mithera's riches and currency were the teachings of the schools for transfiguration, channeling, summoning, conjuring, divination, casting, and the consecration of relics.Mitheraians were guided by a Triune leadership, starting with an Oneshi—one who is both male and female in both body and spirit. This person would choose one female and one male partner. When a sitting Triune was ready to retire, all three were transfigured into a single Triune Magestone—a relic of immense spiritual power.
Adventurous, independent, and free-spirited, you belong in Hodgeskeen.Unlike the other five Great Nations, the Hodgeskeenesh do not live in one central location. They are nomadic, flying in their airships between the Great Nations. Because they have no ancestral homeland on the face of Rendaraia, they make their homeland the sky itself.Although the Hodgeskeenesh produce no goods for barter, the services their airships offer are so vital to the Nations and Tribes of Rendaraia that they maintain the highest of esteem.Each airship is headed by a Ship-Chief, a well-respected elder amongst the crew, competent at delegation and having firsthand experience of all vocations required to run a ship. An airship fleet is coordinated by a Fleet-Chief, who is chosen from amongst the Ship-Chiefs by popular esteem of the members of that fleet.
