Magic of Larika (Lore)

If you're not into reading background stories and lore, you can skip this one.

So Larika is actually not the name of the universe in which my dolls exist. It's the name of the country where my current story is set.
 I wish I could draw you a map, I know just how it supposed to look.

Okay, so in this universe (which I have yet to name) there are three huge magical gems burried deep down into the soil of the earth. These three magical gems are the source of all magic, and the closer you are to a gem, the stronger is the magic.

Humans, as creatures without magic, soon came to envy the magical humanlike races such as faes and Isanus, so they started bringing up small pieces of the gems. At first they used them in objects to produce magical objects, but the humans longed for more.
They managed to liquifying  the gem pieces, which could be used by branding humans and if all went well, and the magic was correctly obsorbed into the body, the human would be able to do magic.

However, the process of the branding, the scars and the magic all put the live of the human at risk, so the experiment were limited to be used in the military of Karr and Etrinia. As for all illegal  practices there is a black market for these brandings, but the risks are often lethal enough to keep most people from trying.

The military from Karr soon learned how hard it was to make sure the new magic users would survive, but they discovered that a small dosis of magic could be used to create a "self destroy" mechanism in the girls. Every time a girl is captured and tortured to give up infomation about the military, she could activate the "self destruction" and blow up herself and whatever happned to be nearby.

  2. That was very interesting. Poor girls, they are like timebombs.
    Those 3 gems reminded me of Nodes in an old game "Master of Magic".
    I think you should try to create a map of your world, either digital or hand drawn and scanned.

  3. Doing some serious catching up on the blogs and this post was soothing to read, I like the story. Really exciting with the "self destroy" mechanism. And I agree with Nana, try to create a map, I do love those maps. :)
