    Green, lush, and full of life. Green fields, forests, and a small ocean.
    Ruler/Owner/Governing Body(s):
    The Prime Family. Jett, God of Fire, is technically the king but has been missing for the last three years. His son, Optimus, has been serving as ruler, although he cannot officially be crowned. His uncle Cid has been helping him rule the planet.
    Primary inhabitants:
    Humans who live in various towns and wild animals.
    Unique Planetary Conditions:
    The planet is a perfect balance between wildlife and human kind. Small villages were built so that humans could sustain their lives without missing their link to the peaceful world that surrounds them.
    Brief History:
    The Saber Vortex has been ruled by the Prime family for centuries. It is a generally peaceful planet until the ten years ago, when it was under attack by an outside force. Rory, the Queen of the Saber Vortex and the Goddess of Protection, gave her life to save the world. She created a barrier around the planet that would not allow supernatural beings to enter the world if they were not a part of her family. Jett and Optimus both took the goddess' death hard. Jett eventually abandoned his son and his people. Optimus, meanwhile, has been serving as ruler.

    Name: Elysia
    Current Thread:
    Coming soon
    Surface Conditions:
    Elysia is a world with many different environments. There are deserts, mountains, oceans, forests, and green fields.
    Ruler/Owner/Governing Body(s):
    The Ruling Council of the First
    Primary inhabitants:
    The First and orphaned Secundae
    Unique Planetary Conditions:
    The world was created by the first First, Altwaal. He made it a world just for the Gods. Only animals to hunt and vegetation share the world with the gods and their children.
    Brief History:
    Elysia was created by Altwaal, the first of the First. He created it as a world for the gods to meet and sometimes also have fights in without harming innocent mortals. Not many of the First call it home. Most prefer to rule their own worlds and only appear on Elysia for meetings. Altwaal grew bored of being king and disappeared. In his place, a Council of 13 rule over the First. Although they generally don't interfere with how a First rules his or her planet. They just enforce general laws and try to keep the peace between the various gods.

    Also on Elysia is the Secundae Orphanage. It is near a forest. It was founded by a kind goddess to take in the children of the gods. Some First didn't want to be parents and the goddess took them in. Raising them until either they are adopted by another First or until they ascend into Firsthood themselves. It is agreed that the Orphanage should always be protected and kept safe from any war.

    Name: Arena

    Current Thread: http://quarrelsandquills.net/showthr...he-Gods-of-War

    Surface Conditions: The heart of the world of Arena is a central island fortress at the top of a steep rock cliff face, where the ruling gods live and from which they can observe and intervene elsewhere on the planet using seeing stones and portals. The rest of the planet contains a variety of zones, distributed between four primary biomes: arid desert, sweltering jungle, dense deciduous forest, and frozen tundra. The common denominator is that aside from the fortress, the surface conditions are very harsh - survivable by mortals, but in most cases only barely. The ruling gods are able to temporarily section off areas using force fields.

    Ruler/Owner/Governing Body(s): The Family of War

    Primary inhabitants: Arena has no long-term civilian inhabitants, the peaceful former native population having been driven to extinction millennia ago. The only current permanent residents of this world aside from the Family of War are the magical part-human constructs the ruling gods use to protect their holdings from interlopers and thieves. Invited guests from various worlds gather annually at the fortress to witness the spectacle - see below.

    Unique Planetary Conditions: Basically everything on this world is trying to kill you. The animals are varied and hostile. Many of the plants are poisonous. The climates are harsh and unforgiving. There are few natural food sources, and drinking water can be difficult to find.

    Brief History: No one lives on Arena except the ruling gods and their magical servants... but that doesn't mean nothing ever happens. In fact, once a year the planet plays host to The Game - a battle to the death for the entertainment of the ruling gods and their invited guests, where combatants are placed within a section of the surface surrounded by force fields, and forced to fight each other to the death and survive the harsh conditions until only one winner is left standing. Some of the combatants (often the most skilled ones) come from five "feeder worlds" where gladiators are trained from childhood as a tribute to the gods, learning to fight and hopefully win The Game. The other contenders are selected (frequently against their will) from various other worlds by the Family of War, usually following some sort of war or upheaval on their own planets. Some are selected for their skill, but others are intended as prey for the stronger contenders to hunt down and kill. All the competitors are transported to Arena's surface, dropped within the force field, and left to fight, kill, and die for the amusement of the gods and their guests, who watch via seeing stones from the comfort and safety of the fortress.

    Name: Grace

    Current Thread: Prequel http://quarrelsandquills.net/showthr...requel-Thread)

    Surface Conditions: The world of Grace is mostly deciduous forest, rolling hills, and grassy plains. The climate is temperate and the weather is mild, with a tendency toward rain. In the far north there is a mountain range, and in the far south there is a desert, but these harsher areas do not have permanent populations, only visitors who are training in physical endurance.

    Ruler/Owner/Governing Body(s): A ruling council, currently headed by Allasayne (Goddess of Battle Training) and Rickard (God of Wagers)

    Primary inhabitants: Most of the inhabitants of Grace are exceptionally strong mortals, selective marriage for the desired physical and intellectual traits having been encouraged (though not forced) for countless generations. There are also three families of Firsts and Secundae who have chosen to make Grace their home.

    Unique Planetary Conditions: The planet is highly prosperous and the inhabitants live rather luxuriously.

    Brief History: Children on Grace are trained for combat from a young age, as a tribute to the Ancient Gods their religion is founded upon. Because the population is relatively small, losing a few people to Arena each year takes a heavy toll on the population, and most inhabitants know at least one person who has died there. Still, most remain loyal to the worship of the Family of War. The basic needs of the inhabitants of Grace - such as food, construction materials, and basic textiles - are provided through commerce with other worlds via links provided by their gods, leaving the craftspeople of Grace free to specialize in producing luxury items like decorations, jewelry, fine clothes, and of course weapons.
