These are the lands of a lost society who has just begun it’s turn of fate.The lands are now divided and often face threats, where for the newer and greater ones call for heroes. Heavy inspiration by Indon.
History
Back some time ago, in the area of land labeled 2, there was a spark of life and all were created; Humans, Angels, dwarves, lizardmen, dragons, and the happy slimes. They had lived in harmony, but eventually the being separated into individual groups opposed to one another. Eventually the humans settled on 2 and some of those who wanted to live on separate ways live on 1. Dwarves moved into 5 by using a rout past 1. The slimes and their new found magic (explained later) live on 3, and 4 is just an area where the land ownership is undecided, but where the beings live either fighting or peacefully. Lizardmen and dragons used to own 11 but it was taken over by some wild animals and now dragons own 8 and lizardmen own 7. Angels had moved to 9 but some dark forces raised the undead and they live on 10. Eventually some band of people agreed all where equal besides dragons and moves to the cape of 6. a is some lost island with many interesting undiscovered things and 11 now belongs to nature, but trade routs exist there. The next few parts explain every single territory and their people, a little information, and weapons, along with a guide to artifacts and legends.

Races:
Human: You know this.
Slime: A body made of various acids. These are very culture-loving beings. They are made up of certain elements as well, but are mainly acidic. They have the ability to merge with others, with one willingly giving up control of the body for the other. They are then their own mind and have no physical form. The slimes have also discovered that they can harden into the form of their element. They can also split to make more slimes or elementals.
Lizardman: A humanoid that is slightly taller than a human, has scales, sometimes spikes, a tail, and comes in multiple colors. Shouldn’t need much explination.
Dwarf: A shorter version of a human with greater intelligence. Lacks the magical skill of most beings but excels past the lizardmen. Sometimes chubby and loves alcohol.
Angel: A humanoid with glowing white wings. They are highly capable of magic and are best at healing. They usualy are charsmatic and nice. They also are lovers of music. Some angels lose their wings in life, looking like a human, but live otherwise normaly none the less.
Dragon: A dragon is a massive being about 2 stories high fully grown. They are very inteligent and are extremely strong. All of them have wings, and are capable of flight carrying people. However, this is rather something to look down upon in their culture and is not allowed without a great bond. Some are raised doctile and live as faithful pets to their master untill a certain age where they try and become an independent being.
Undead: The undead are not actually a race; Rather, they are a state of life. They are usualy lacking of self awareness with normal summoning rituals and act for their master; however, the beings in the area marked 10 have self awareness. This sets them apart and makes them a seperate area. Also, they are cool.
