The nobility of magic
Society/ Organizations  (Political)   (Trans World)

I like the idea, it's a very interesting prospect. Now, think about this: just imagine if one day, a strange man accused of claiming magical ability was brought in front of the royal court. When "questioned" about this, he responds that he DID do so, but based off of facts, and proceeds to prove his claim by sending the guards trying to beat him bloody flying dozens of feet into the air to land in an unconscious heap on the ground, then sucking the magical energy right out of a nobleman trying to intervene. Obviously, they think that he might be a runaway prince from an unknown realm. However, when asked what rank he has in his nation's court, he replies, "What? The NOBILITY!? They wouldn't touch us mages with a ten-foot pike! Stupid sods are afraid we'll set their fancy fur coats on fire. No, I'm just a member of the Mage's Guild. One of the more intelligent ones, but one nonetheless." Obviously, the fact that a COMMONER has such powerful magical abilities- and uses them in combat so willingly- raises some tough questions for them, namely, "How can we keep him from kicking our arses?" You see, this particular nation is known for its peaceful and arrogant nobility, who mainly use magic to amuse themselves and oppress old farmers, who're always named Bob, for some reason. As a result, their war magic is incredibly weak, considering how easy it is to oppress aging peasants. As if that weren't enough, they're currently at war with a rival nation with fairly powerful mages. However, then one of them suggests a very simple prospect: allow the commoner to marry into the royal family with the king's youngest daughter, who's around his age, and then use him as their secret weapon in the war!

Short and sweet. Particularly liked the "Ore Measure" - now that is a different way to measure time. Go to Comment

I like Ore Measure and Hjurkans (Hjurkans seems particularly interesting and realistic to me).
How do Isan years differ from others? Are they measured differently? What are they connected to? Go to Comment

It's connected to the fallen empire of Isandor that dominated the first era of man. Go to Comment

Lovely work. This is the kind of thing I like to see for each setting.

My only complaint is the format tends to run together. Maybe a line feed after each entry or the bolding of the date... either one would work. Go to Comment

I agree with Moon on this one. The format in which the sub is laid out in makes it hard to read at times. Otherwise this is wonderful. Go to Comment

This is the worst kind of a submission: there is much written, and makes you craving for still more! :)

Complete and solid. There are some grammar and capitalization errors, but those can be cleaned up over time. Go to Comment

Very nice set of calanders and time measures. Each has its own piece of chrome that makes it special.

Would be nice if there was a way to synch them up section, giving us a better idea on how to convert between them. Go to Comment

The Codex as a whole is an easy 5 for me. Great and entertaining work, obviously a labor of love, and an intriguing world to boot! Go to Comment

Only have read this so far, but as a Codex, it seems very thorough, consistent andwell thought it. It's easy to see that you have put quite a deep amount of thought into your con-world, especially as evidenced by your naming conventions (do I spot the makings of a conlang?) and your steady progression through an archaic age, dark age, modern and now post-modern age.

Interesting and useful to both players and GMs. It provides some motivation and drive to each social force.

In fact, the title is almost a misnower. This is about Social Factors rather than World Orders (which implies a geo-political submission). Go to Comment

I agree I was expecting a completely different type of sub when I read the title. However it is still a nice added tid bit for the players to know before hand. I also have done something similar to this for Hewdamia where I described each races view toward the others and their policical views. Rather helpful when players need a base to go off of.

Interesting indeed. I have a soft spot for people of legends, unrivaled in power but most likely never seen; though they be a firm part of the world's background. Great work. Go to Comment

I like the format in which you presented the post, nicely done.

The race itself is a thing of legend. I really hope nobody thought they were PC options. As background material they are handy to have. They also beem embedded into your setting... which I would like to see more of.

Presentation is top notch, and the mythical aspect of the Sorcen tied with their massive power makes them believable. There can be incredibly powreful beings who are not interested in world domination, rather just sitting back and cultivating their own little corner of the world. Kudos. Go to Comment
