I started reading Elric, but it will take some time before I am done.

Thus, take anything below with a grain of salt :)

As for races, I understand there's humans and Melniboners, thus I am going for the former.

I had this idea:
A falling star of strange properties fell, and all born nine months henceforth were strange somehow. So it was with Gerhard, who found himself with the two-edged gift of being able to see things beyond mundane reality, and a strange inseparable companion, whom he affectionately calls his "Cellmate", though the presence has a name unfit for human vocal cords. Theirs is a strange symbiosis, where the entity learns of human condition through the man, and he in turn learns of the ephemeral.
The above are conductive to mastering magic in a world where its foundation is convincing supernatural entities to carry out your will; on the other hand, it is less conductive to a content, uneventful life when you have trouble keeping the supernatural out.

Gerhard has two major motivations:
> First of all, he wishes to investigate the comet that fell those twenty years ago, because the Cellmate does not recall, it was just thrust into this world. Gerhard wishes to investigate the other Star-born and the mysterious source of their gift.
> He wishes to investigate the rumors of a "Magic of Man" - supernatural power that humans can exert without the aid of demons or elementals.

Furthermore, he's looking into alchemy as a source to better control his talent, for too much perception can be as much of a problem as too little of it.

Appearance-wise, he's a tall, slender raven-haired man with eyes of blue, a distinguishing feature being that ...

That made me lol Scras. :D

Ok, it's all coming together in my head now...

We're playing the silver age of fantasy. The golden age being post-Tolkien. We'll be leaning more on the likes of Moorcock, Derleth, REH, Burroughs, CAS, Lieber, (maybe tiny touch of Lovecraft) and so on.

We'll use the map from Elric's world. Mainly because, despite the offered geography, the world is really vague with many places explained by one liners in Moorcock's Elric Saga. Which gives us room to explore and re-invent.

Without further ado, here's where you are...

Elric knew that everything that existed had its opposite. In danger he might find peace. And yet, of course, in peace there was danger. Being an imperfect creature in an imperfect world he would always know paradox. And that was why in paradox there was always a kind of truth. That was why philosophers and soothsayers flourished. In a perfect world there would be no place for them. In an imperfect world the mysteries were always without solution and that was why there was always a great choice of solutions.Michael Moorcock

update: maybe something like Elric, crossed with REH, with Burroughs mixed in for good measure.

Gladiator! I think we've done this one before, but let's do it again. I think it's a good one. Lots of potential for gladiators in all settings.
