A world similar but different from our own. With magical creatures and magic powers. And pretty kick butt heroes.
Three beings. Dragons. Caelum, Aqua and Terra. Siblings older than time itself. They are wise and decided to create a world to tell and share tales of the creators. Caelum’s wings wrap around the world, creating the sky. Terra sleeps as the earth. And Aqua breaths the blue fire of water upon the ground.
The first humans and birds were created by Caelum. The Elves and land animals by Terra. And the Sea creatures, river creatures and mermaids by Aqua. A human rose up, his name was Karn. He grew power hungry and malicious. It was by his evil experiments that the hybrids were created. (Kirinths, half humans, ect.)
Just like our own! You know, gravity and stuff.
It’s passed down like a genetic. Only if you have the magic gene can you wield the magic around you. Speaking of, magic exists all around you, in the air, ground, water, etc.
Medieval/Renaissance technology. However, they have magic users. Therefore, they can use enchantments and such to do more advanced things.
Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, mostly.
As well as other fictions I’ve read over the years.
