hello, Adam Theo here with some concepts I've dished up....

>Question. There has been a lot of guesses, speculation, and hints as to
what life is like on the continent of Aduria. <

>If anyone has any ideas of thier own, possibly we could discuss this.
What are some speculations that any of you guys out there have? <

>as for myself, my version is this....
>I've decided that the main "kingdom" of Aduria is Roman in technology and
art. Most parts of Aduria haven't "evolved" as fast as Cerilia. Most of
Aduria isn't renaissance yet. I imagine that most of Aduria's government
structure would be a city-state (kind of like Khinasi), however, I read
Raymond E. Feist's "Magician" and I liked the idea of an extreamly large
empire that revolved around a strong religious and warlike way of life.
So, to keep the Roman city state feel and the large holy-war Empire, I've
decided that a large city state struggled to conquer about half of the
massive continent of Aduria. However, the conquering state has spred
itself very thin over it's empire, so most people living at the extents of
the empire in thier city states don't see any sign of thier "liege-emperor
or his "empire" for years at a time. <
>Aduria is a very large continent, it is connected to the continent of
Djapar by a thick string of islands. At the south eastern corner of Aduria
lies the oriental cultures of the world. The western part of Aduria is
land bridged to the African and north american lands with aztec-like
culture on the land bridge itself. <
>The religion of the empire is monothiestic, similar to early christianity
and catholocism, but strong ties to the old testament and judiasm(sp). God
vs Satan. But to keep a system of variety to the priests and monks, there
are a very large range of demi-gods who serve either God or Satan.
churches and people have thier particular demi-gods who they look to for
spiritual stuff in addition to the High Lord of Goodness. the mini-gods
who serve Good are called saints or angels, while those that serve Evil are
called Demons. I envision a society with strong religious elements (strong
good vs evil). <

>please, any comments? just to flesh out the origional lands of the humans
