In the beginning, it was only the ilim, and the land. In time, humes discovered their safe-haven, and the ilim welcomed them with open arms, readily sharing what they had. But, humes ever desire more than they have, and pushed further across the continent, building cities, and nations. The ilim were driven into a smaller and smaller territory, now called Galace, the last stronghold of the children of Azaleon. 

And the ilim knew war. The hume nations slowly whittled away until there were but three: Dalmasca, Jihon, and Macenia. Dalmasca and Jihon were always at war with Macenia, seeking to reach Galace's resources and claim them for themselves, but the Macenian humes refused to bow and let them pass. 

In hope that they would understand the ilim, and learn to live in harmony as they did, the gods bestowed unto humes magic, but it was not the gift they'd intended, most hume magi going crazy, over time. The people became fearful of hume magi, many casting them out when they were found, more outright executing them. 

A prophecy was told, that foretold the coming of a mage called the Messiah, that would rid Azaleon of all humes incapable of using magic, and bring a new dawn to Azaleon. But some do not rely on prophecies and would- be. In Dalmasca, a storm rises, as a young boy aims to claim the imperator seat for himself, and stop the fighting. He has much opposition. Do you stand with the cobra, or will you seek to behead it? 

Messiah is no word count, no app, no character caps/bans/limits. Due to its varying themes, however, it is not suitable for users below sixteen (16), though the overall board rating is high-side PG-13/3.2.2. It does go above this, and users can opt into seeing such content, or not. We are the second site to be running on the Gaia software! It is very intuitive and easy to use, though, don't worry! You'll love it. We use Discord for chatting.

Messiah

Blood fighters take part in the Blood Games, a series of gladiatorial games prevalent in eastern Azaleon. Many fighters can become extremely popular, and become esteemed and rather honoured among Dalmascans and the Jihonese. Blood fighter or slave? Has the character fought in the arena and won? Blood fighter. Otherwise, slave.

These are the every day citizen. Commoners are typically not very wealthy, and some can be very impoverished, while others may have a steady enough income to live comfortably, but not in excess. Those of the commons class have full citizenship rights in whichever region or nation they call home, and are afforded the privileges that citizenship gives them.

While many dragons group together in clusters, some do not; these are the Flightless, those that do not have a larger group of dragons, called Flights, that they consider to be their own. Most Flightless dragons remain so for the rest of their lives, but some may join, and be accepted into, a Flight later on.

Something of a combination between a law-maker, and a judiciary branch, the justicar is a high-ranking Dalmascan that assists in management of a specific region within their country. There are five justicars per city, one of which is the Prime, the acting ruler of the city.

These individuals and houses deal in the trade of goods or services, and are typically somewhat moneyed, at the very least. Wealth is typically accumulated either through mercantile businesses, or through real estate. Commoners who gain enough wealth can have a foothold into the nobility class through wealth, and from there, potentially into higher classes.

Slaves may be general house slaves, who do house work, body slaves, who are assigned a specific person to whom they answer and attend to the needs of, or public slaves, who do not belong to any one house or person but instead to the general public. Slavery is outlawed everywhere except Dalmasca and Jihon, however, slaves can come from everywhere.

Those related to, or being themselves, an ujal, or the rhanujal of Jihon. These individuals are very high in social standing in Jihon, and only the rhanujal himself is above them. Much of the time, the ujalin operates as both a governor and a military leader, and managing the affairs of their given region is left essentially entirely to them.

Any individual, or house, that has gained reputation and status via their military achievements, is officially warlord class. Only warlords can become justicars in Dalmasca, however this class is recognised in most of Azaleon. Typically, warlord class houses and individuals raise their standing further by becoming respected warriors, effectively defending strongholds, pushing back invaders, successfully invading other lands, defeating war parties, and similar.
