ravine- saradrion rulers by nebezial ravine- saradrion rulers by nebezial
ever since the great aertes gate opened and the old world first stepped into the realms of arlenya ( later known simply as ravine) the northwestern region was revered as a mystic place and it is there the original sinners of form have created their empire. among the first humans to mix their blood with dragons sardaheims were also the first to gain a perfected form.

it camw with great sacrifices as the power of dragonblood will twist the body into a monstrous form most of the times, but they found a way how to channel the power of that blood. mere two generations later their offspring was capable of forming a rudimentary dragontear withing their bodies thus enabling them great proficiency in magic which surpassed ordinary human mages
dragontear is a source of raw magic on its own. this enables the sardaheim mages to use more magic attacks by using their own raw power , instead of chanelling necra from the world around them

sardaheims were neither the first nor the last to experiment with dragonblood and dragontears, shivas were a result of the same kind of hunger for power but unlike sardaheims they never mastered the dragontear forming instead they took the instinct of the dragon, and the ability to see spellwork formation. this led to the developing of their disrupting attacks that are hated by all spellcasters


third most known race to have been experimenting with dragonblood were the mesadee, they actually were sucessful in forming the dragontear within their bodies but this was also the cause of their nations downfall

unlike sardaheims who formed the tear above their hearts, mesadee formed it below their navel, the resonating of the tear and its energy led to thr realisation that mesadee women were unparalelled in their lovemaking ablilites and so many were kidnapped into slavery which lead to the great bloodwar

ever since then the bloodstained races of sardaheim and mesadee never fully trusted the humans, shivas stood aside from this conflict for the most part

today the sardaheim empire with annexed mesadee people is a vast and powerful region whose power is unchallenged as they are at this point the only ones that could legitimately threathen the power of paladia alliance

This is one of the most sexiest and coolest reptilian race designs I have ever seen anywhere. Considering how hard it is to find decent designs like this anywhere in comic, t.v., novel and movie form.

Scaly beard thing looks sooooo cool! How sharp are their scales though? Are they warm or cold blooded? You said they evolved from humans so does that mean they can mate with humans? What would their offspring look like?

nebezial Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011
no sardaheims were meticulous in breeding to gain a stable form from what iwas essentially a rather violent mutation, their legs are for instance kinda dinosaurlike

so , no they cant mate with humans anymore, mesadee on the other hand are a more subtle mutation and are still capable of producing offspring with humans

One can do nothing short of love the fantasy, thought and design you put into these things. I have yet to read the story, but I sure hope you put as much splendor into it as you do on the facts of it. If you do, then I'm looking at the comic books answer to Lord of the Rings.

It's pretty crazy what all these races do to themselves D:. It's nice to see and know where the dragontears form on different races though. So thanks a lot for that info :)

after i posted, i was thinking "i could see some similarities to dragon age as well" i suppose that's fantasy for you. :P

oblivion isn't as good as DA in my opinion, though.

all fantasy inevitably looks alike,as there are only so many variations you can do. in the end its what you do with what you got what distinguisheds good fantasy from lazy writing, and yep da really rocked my socks, 3 playthroughs in a row XD

i only played through once. the one thing i didn't like, was the character's didn't scale like most rpg's. it was almost like my damage barely went up at all the entire time. D:

Masterful concept my friend, its well thought out, though I'm a little confused. Did every race take in the mesadee women as slaves or only humans?
Reply
:iconnebezial:
nebezial Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011
nope, only humans , it took over 400 years to reach a stare of peace and coexistence but also there was a clause in peace agreement that mesadee are given the right to hunt down and punish any that seek to enslave them, as they see fit

and lets say that since then only the decadent ritch people delved into using mercenary enslavers to fethc them a mesadee woman.

still, these things usually leak out and not even nobility is safe from absolute clause of peace agreement

it is after all the clause that finally guaranteed peace with saradrion empire... aaand you dont want pissed off sardaheim as your naighbours XD

:icontocloseami:
TocloseamI Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011
So as a human, it'd be like a dog barking at a tiger (lol)? Ps, it'd be cool to read about a mesadee woman who snuck a knife with her, killed the noble, and sneaked out back to the saradrion territory

oh dont misunderstand humans are powerful in their own way, unlike the bloodstained ones humans of pure form are granted the ability and privilege to seal the gifts of the eani, weapons of immense power that were given to them to restore the balance of power ages ago when the humanity was in danger of being devoured by the newly unleashed powers of the old world

still an all out war between the human kingdoms and the bloodstained races would be a devastating blow rto the overall population of ravine, so instead everythign possible is done to prevent that from hapenning

and as for theother thing, mesadee vengeance is actually far greater than just killing the noble , most of the time it involves slaying his entire household , setting the culprits house, and everything he owns on fire and then to finish off the vengeance the culprit is more often blinded, his hands and .. ehrm thingie... severed and let loose to wander the world as a living warning

lets put it this way, now the cases of kidnaping and enslavement of mesadees are eeeeeeeextremaly rare
