The World of Bikron

This is the world of Bikron, the continent of Diskora is where our tale is told. Little known about the rest of the world, except that the continent of Kino exists and is filled with strange demonic, brutish, savage races, and that Ogghath is filled with Darskhand Orcs.

Alliance – The Dusk
Alliance of Dwarves and Elves that spans nearly 5000 years and half a continent. Run by Queen Glingaereth of the elves and Queen Rowena Darkhammer of the Dwarves. Their previously solid alliance is now on shaky grounds.

Alliance – The Dawn
Empress Opella is young, but has forged an alliance that has seen those south of the Desert of Draneth come together, willingly or not. Humans and halflings were mostly large independent tribes, villages and towns until Opella arrived: a few still maintain their independence of The Dawn however.

Place – Falsam
Falsam is a hot place, except for when the wind comes from the north, off the cold mountains. Falsam is over 3000 years old. The buildings are wood affairs, and doors are usually left open, but with strip hangers to let in the breeze. The streets are paved with large light coloured rocks, uneven. A small prison is on the edge of the town.

Place – Vanlas
Vanlas is the capital of the Dawn and Opella’s home. Vanlas is a large town, comprised of wooden log cabin homes, and large stone temples and cathedrals. A river runs from the mountains all the way down the the coastal cities. The Temple is dedicated to Triad.  A school house and a local prison has been setup. this is also the main headquarters of The Lodge.

Place – Chatvok
A little town, where there are lots of tiny waterways that lead to the sea. The town is propped up on stilts. There is no wall here, unlike other towns as the water does a good job of keeping the town safe from both demons and celestials. there is currently a passing portal within the temple (a top a hill) dedicated to Savras.

Place – Dalry
A small town within the Dusk, with a smithy, inn and little else. It was here that Zaltanna and the Tyr’s Irregular’s had a run in with the doubles ones, and where the search for the Shield Relic started. 

Person – Lindrin
A well built muscly elf, Lindrin is the head screw and manager of Falsam Prison. He has a mean right hook and believes in corporal punishment. He makes life hell for his prisoners, and is more than happy to see each one of them ground into the dirt like the worms they are.

Person – Kaeden
Kaeden is a good man trying to save the world from the incoming apocalypse for the only family he has, his daughter Tayless. Kaeden is now responsible for the surviving class One prisoners and has been magically bonded to them, allowing short range telepathy and an innate sense of where his charges are.

Person – Tayless
The optimistic friendly child of Kaeden, who is a little bit of a mischief. All she wants in life is to be a hero like her dad, be god at magic and be a good investigator. She loves her new aunties and uncles, but doesn’t know why her Daddy doesn’t want her to spend a lot of time with them.

Person – Kyethia
A young woman who works within Falsam Prison, she hides a war inducing secret. Kyethia is an astute researcher and a halfway decent alchemist. Coming from a royal-ish family back on Kino, it was in fact her departed sister that sent her on a mission to find and help Balance.

Person – Demi
Demi is the scatter brained, overly enthusistic leader of the Witches Society. She is a Wild Magic Sorceress with many things on her mind. Although contrary to her flighty manner, when she focuses on her magic, she has power over the elements themselves. 

Person – Dammaz
The half orc brother of Demi, and leader of The Lodge. He is practically minded, and tries to see the potential in everyone, including those society would deem hopeless. He is generally quite forgiving and a known follower of Torm. Dedicated to The Lodge, his god and his clan. He seems to be able to temper his uncontrollable sister.

Person – Squash
Squash is a member of The Lodge, but loyal to Dammaz whom he met when Dammaz first arrived in Diskorra. Squash comes from Empty Shallows and like the residents there, is a hafling who suffers from were-ratism. Squash is a thief, a liar and an addict, but he knows where ancient and powerful artifacts are.

Sentience – Marnak
Although within Balance’s essence for 50+ years, we know little of Marnak, other than the gods tore his soul into pieces, to be put back together again to avert a future apocalypse – over 5000 years ago when the last great war happened. He once had a family whose souls have been obliterated with Soulfire.

Sentiment Sword – Calinmourn the Truly Great, Greatsword
Calinmourn used to be a powerful human warrior who loved nothing more than showering in the blood of his enemies. Obsessed with a prophecy that foretold him to be upon another plane fighting an existence ending threat, he was thwarted when a Valkyrie drew his soul into her sword. now he lusts for vengeance, and to fulfill his destiny. Carried by Zaltanna, and a complete dick.
