A guide more than pure fact. It's really the very first steps in the creation mythos and predates the deities that makes up most of the worship in the world. As part of the Holy Empire setting, it's only with the rise of the Holy Empire that worship of the "Light" begins to supplant worship of the deities with all the bloodshed that a religious shift entails.

The Eturians are a rough amalgam of the Romans and the Datians are based on the Greeks. I merely took the names of Etrusca and modified it a bit. The Datian's name I believe is based on Dacia but has no connection whatsoever to the Roman province of the same name. They dwell in the lands of Tiberia West of the lands of Imperia where sits Riversheart. Go to Comment
Thank you. And I think I'll create a sub later down the road to describe the lands of Imperia and her people, specifically the urban areas like Riversheart. That should solve the lack of any cultural tidbits I didn't throw in this one. Thanks for pointing that out. Go to Comment
Thank you to all for the helpful comments. I'm currently working a full time job as well as having enjoyed the birth of a newborn son so a lot of my work into the Holy Codex has been put on the back burner. However, as time has passed enough for me to peruse all of the helpful comments, I will in due time edit the sub as much as possible. Go to Comment
Thank you mystic for the comment. The sub has a few issues, grammatical and otherwise, that I am going to fix. As for SSolomon, his story might have up to three more parts. I have yet to decide. Stay tuned. Go to Comment
True true. I agree, it could have been longer but I felt that I wanted to leave the meeting with the Emperor in Pt. III and really wanted to focus on that connection between the herald and Solomon in this one. Go to Comment
Perhaps those that practice elemental magic begin to take on characteristics associated with their chosen element. For instance, an earth elementalist might be prone to agoraphobia, while air and possibly fire elementalists might have problems with claustrophobia. Water elementalists might always seek the path of least resistance. A fire elementalist might have a cat's opinion of water. This could also apply to physical differences. Fire elementalists might have a freakishly high metabolism and a permanently high body temperature. Water elementalists would probably never get dehydrated, but might slow down a lot when it's cold. Etc, etc.
