Aleria

From DQWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Aleria is a plane that is connected to Alusia by a permanent portal. The Alusian end of the portal is beneath the Seagate Guild, the Alerian end is in a locked room in an old fort on the outskirts of Trading Post.

The majority of births on the plane are female (about 90%), the plane has a female dominated society with men having a subservient leisurely role primarily focused on breeding.

Colleged magic is rare, possibly non-existant. There are rare magic adepts of various sorts and many people of Aleria have magical talents that are usually inherited.

Technology is more advanced than that on Alusia. Daggers, Swords, and flintlocks are the most commonly used weapons. River travel is via Steamboat.

History

Spring 805wk
A representative of the Porter clan was named as being the employer of Yana (and the other 3 mercenaries), hiring them to abduct the Wansbone and/or Wainwright brothers.

The elder sisters were caught kidnapping and marrying (a fake) Wansbone brother in a sting operation and sentenced to exile. Their involvement in the theatre explosion was confirmed during questioning.

Whistler Clan

Similar background to the Wansbones. Covert Ops during the civil war, acquired a noble from the losing side to 'en-noble' their descendents. Their Brother is married to the current Queens.

Wainwright Clan

Farming family as far back as they can recall, no dark secrets, nor links to any noble families. Clever, have a brother (Marcus) who was to be traded for Cullen to be the Wansbones husband. Marcus was also kidnapped by us but they didn't know about it until a week after the Wansbones did (presuming it took longer for the memory obfuscation to fade). Their fates are linked with the bad stuff that is coming, both were targets of the bandits. There is a secret passage into the Brothers room which the family did not know about until we told them and it looks like it hadn't been used for years (prior to us). Their Father is still alive, he is in his 50's.

Marcus
17 years old, 5'11", long brown hair.
Sisters
Eldest, Madeline, Katerina, Janelle (full sister to Marcus), Marjory, ...

Brindle Clan

Elderly father, 1 young brother (Balin). Suspected in-breeding.

Smithson Clan

Have a brother (Ricard).

Potter Clan

Shilleen Clan

Adamson Clan

Cartwright Clan

Jonason Clan

Lands are beyond Smithson clan.

Rose the Oracle

Tall, old woman, part-fey, seems benignly indifferent. Oracular ability only applies to questions she is asked, until she is asked she doesn't know the answer and thus is unable to volunteer information.

Lilith

Blind albino mind(ish) mage. Lives in the forest north of the Wainwrights.

Yana & Co (Mercenaries)

Hired by a representative of the Porter clan to abduct the Wansbone and/or Wainwright brothers. Yana was their contact and has done illegal work for the Porters before.

Following their capture and a deal for information, they now work for Dramus as part of his personal guard.

Fae

The Fae of Aleria avoid contact with most of the residents of Aleria, this has not always been the case. It is suspected that a long time ago some Fae interbred with some of the locals which is the source of their magical abilities. It may also have had something to do with their odd birth rates.

For several centuries the Fae had been in decline due to half of their people leaving and establishing the Fae kingdom of Asheth. They have now been reunited and are expected to recover.
