Touch of Fey
The Following is a list of terms and concepts relevant to the world this campaign takes place in.
Telemne: A highly civilized and advanced people that used magic to attune their bodies with elemental power, becoming the first true elementalists. They were not one race, but many, as the rituals for attunement could be taken by any with the knowledge and power to perform them. Once attuned, a Telemne often passed on this trait to their children. What the Telemne did not know was that Tharizdun’s elemental aspects had corrupted their connection to the elements, and his influence towards chaos and destruction grew stronger as a Telemne mage tapped into their elemental magic. Some elements, such as Fire, were more prone to this corruption then others, and since the Telemne were a mostly agnostic people, few discovered the source of this corruption. A millenium ago the Fire Lords started a conflict that would become known as the War of Fire. It nearly consumed the world, and most of the Telemne abandoned the prime material plane to seek safety in planes beyond. A hundred years ago Fae’ra’el, the captial city of the Telemne Empire, returned to the prime, but found the land they once ruled fallen to wastelands or risen as new nations by humanoids that survived the War of Fire.
Air Lord: (archaic – Aer Lord) A humanoid descended from the Telemne with strong magical ties to the element of air. At one time the Air Lords were one of four factions that ruled the Telemne Empire. Note: The Air Lords of the flying citadel of Kragis’Aer found themselves cast adrift in the Elemental Plane of Air when the spell meant to take them to a safe demiplane with the rest of the Telemne of Fae’ra’el failed. They were found and returned to the Prime with the help of the Archmage Air Lord Talteslos.
Feywine: A strong wine made from a green berry found in the Feralwood. The gnome brewer and winemaker Bixen Libixyten is known for bottling a vintage once supplied to the Stag Lord.
Lord Bender: Ale laced with Feywine, this powerful drink is named after Lord Bronin. Accidentally consuming one during the Festival of the Summer Solstice, he made a spectacle of himself with Lili Teskertin. As feywine is a hallucinogenic for anyone without fey blood, most versions of this drink consist of ale and moonshine.
