Eons ago, Urd was a land of myth and legend. Humanity and Fate lived by the cycles of Urd's moons: Rijk, the Iron Moon; the Moon of the Matter, and Ura, the Silver Moon; the Moon of the Spirit. Human oracles and Fata kings and queens, told the world what to do, and the world spoke to them as well. But, somehow, that Oracle's Era ended.

Who lived in comunion, now are separated: Humanity prospered over Urd with iron, fire and sail. Fate looked at them from the all-mighty Spirit, unable to reach them... Until magic was discovered. Talking old forgotten languages, the wizards and sorceress from Artamea manage to create a way to commune with the beings of the Spirit. But magic is not common yet, so only in Artamea, its Empire, and its allies is allowed to be practised. It is the Shield of Magic, and its Ten Commandments shall be respected by all mages, least they want the Purple Night knocking at their door.

But some mages are starting to see magic not as a way of collaboration between worlds, but a form of slavery: Half-breed and pure Fate are treated as spell materials and servants. How much time will the Fate admit this treatment?

Fantasy world for a NaNoWriMo novel, based on Paracelsus works and its time. I'm using this page as a reference while I'm working on it.

Archmage Ariel

The First Archmage (a.k.a. The Lady of the Foundation)

Not many people remembers where Ariel came from, and no one knows where she died. Her statue is shown on every magic building, but all wizards can tell that her face in the rock are a work of idealization: no one remembers how she looked like. But everyone knows her.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Ariel was the master of lady Daneva Tairetha, First Empress of Danevia, and co-founder of Artamea with her mentor. It was they, this two ladies, who selected the fork of the rivers Laetz, Tirecz and Gnoma for the localization of Artamea, and set the first rocks of the Imperial Palace.

Accomplishments & Achievements

Ariel is remembered as a genius: she deciphered all the rules and codes of the four elemental languages (the Gramatice) all by herself. She communed with around one and a hundred Fate, and learned even more rules and words from them. The magic in Artamea today would have been impossible without the titanic work of Ariel.

After six hundred years of life, and near five hundred eighty years of hard work, Ariel disappeared without leaving a trace. Some legends tell she ascended to the sky, but others talk about the First Archmage setting early in the morning for a walk in the woods. What happened is unknown. But her teachings and discoveries were already shared by four generations of wizards and witches, that continued her legacy. And this legacy is the magic that is used in Artamea today, as well as all in the other nations that are under the Magic Shield.

Biological sex


Known languages

Old Danevian and she deciphered the Vulcanic, the Nymphic, the Gnomic and the Silvester. Some legends tell that she also knew the Esperic and the language of Mogay
