Race:
Elves are the social elite of this society. They have extended this courtesy to their half-elf children, but their human parent receives no special treatment from giving birth to a half-elf child. Mages hold all political power, and elves have a long history of magic use, but not all elves are mages.

Caste System:
There is a caste system implemented in this society. From most power to least power they are: Elven Mages, non-mage Elves, Temple Clerics, Human Mages, The Guard, non-slave humans, elf slaves, human slaves.

Powerful elves can hire mercenaries and assassins. Some of the more powerful have quite large personal armies in their estates.

Slavery:
Slaves are created in two ways. They can be born into slavery, and will be free once their parents have re-payed their debt, or a free person can be forced into slavery if they cannot pay a debt to the court or a debtor. This slavery system has created some social tensions.

Government:
There exists a ruling council known as the Magocracy. This Magocracy elects a Mage-King from their ranks and he rules until he dies, or becomes mentally incompetent. The Mage-King is elected due to their magical prowess. However, there is a lot of competition to be elected, so it is not uncommon for blackmail and bribery to be implemented. It has also been rumored that certain factions employ assassins to eliminate key figures of the other factions.

Geography:
The Island consists of one major capitol city, and two other major cities. The capitol is located in the center of the island while the first major city is located on the Northern shore of the island near the large silver mine, and the second city is on the southern shore and is the largest port on the island. The rest of the island is covered by dense groves of trees. Farming communities have sprout up along the major roads to and from the three major cities.

Religion:
Everyone on the island worships a Holy Trinity: The Matron(creator and nurturer) The Warrior(protector and keeper of justice) and The Maiden (symbolizes purity and innocence), three aspects of one Goddess. However, it is rumored by the common folk that the temple is corrupt.
The Temple is strictly against Necromancy and approves of the caste system. It holds the court and is the official justice system.
While it takes humans, they never rise high within the ranks, only ever preaching to other humans. Half-Elves have tended to gravitate towards the temple as they can rise to the upper ranks of power, where they couldn't in the Elf dominated Magocracy.
The Temple has its own army called the Templars.

Law and Order:
Maintained by a city guard, made up of the lower castes. It is loyal to the law and the city it inhabits, as oppose to any one lord. However it is rumored to often corrupt at the top, leading to brutality and other injustices. A convict is brought before the temple magistrate (of the higher orders) to answer for their crimes. Punishments consist of prison, slavery and the execution.

Enemies of civilization:
There are a group of islands to the South, settled by Atmorans long ago, who have persisted the test of time and continue to raid the coast. Another, problem is the goblin horde that attacks the mining town. And of course, there is the constant threat of revolt from the humans against the Elves and the Magocracy.

It's a shame Rythis left, this looks like a really good RP.

Iogairn do you plan to get this RP moving? I'd join.

Rythis has actually been on recently, this month in fact.

But yeah, I'd join if you got it going.

Yes, I'm here. I've had a lot of family issues, and I really regret not being on more often. I've been so busy trying to catch up with all my guild stuff I haven't thought about this RP idea. I would love to get it going, but I'm again busy with family issues this weekend, so maybe next week?
