Almost May, Goodbye April

30 April, 2018

Tomorrow brings the first day of May.  May was Maius in Latin and was named after the Greek goddess Maia, probably, who is associated with Spring.  So, what shall the theme be for May?  Spring and nature?  The fae and faerie?  Something else?  Let me know.

Unsurprisingly April’s writings were primarily for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, which I am pleased to say I completed though a few were late).  So, the posts for April, 2018, were:

A to Z – Random

30 April, 2018

Looking for changeThere is a great deal of chaos and randomness is the Sea of Stars with unusual magical effects just waiting for a trigger, lost artifacts seeking a new owner and fragments of divine essence wanting a new home.  Sometimes strange and wonderful things happen, sometime terrible and explainable things happen, but the further away from the center of the Sea of Stars one gets, the more untamed magic there is waiting to happen.

Note: A last minute filler, as somehow I missed R earlier!

A to Z – Zoomorphic

30 April, 2018

There was some zoomorphism among the now slain gods, especially among the gods whose portfolios included the beasts.  Though, with the possible exception of Ypisara, they did not create peoples in their image.  It seems there was no place for zoomorphic folk under the old divine regime.

BeastKine at playThe majority of Beastkine emerged in the aftermath of the Sundering as a result of the potent and uncontrolled magic released from that event.  The Beastkine are small in number by comparison to the other major people and are unusual enough that they will often earn a second look even from jaded city dwellers.  Naturally, the Beastkine do not consider themselves strange at all and are happy to venture and explore all across the Sea of Stars.

Further, the magic changes from the Sundering both created many chimeric creatures and made using magic and alchemy to create new ones a much simpler task.  In some regions chimeric beast are almost as common as their unblended relatives, though with them being so common, people no longer think of them as anything other than the beast of the region.

While wizards and alchemical masters may try to make their own chimera very few have tried to create their own beastfolk.  Perhaps it is simply too daunting of a task or perhaps even the flexible morality of wizards has it limits.

Notes: And this almost wraps up the A to Z for the month.  Thanks for reading!
