The Wars of the Three Realms

The Three Realms, like any collection of civilizations, has had quite a few wars that marked the turning point of new eras. After casting out Oyed to keep the Realms as they are, the Divine Ones had a vision of how each conflict would start, fearing the beginning of the last war that would lead the Realms to their ultimate destiny. Below are all the wars the Realms suffered, how long they lasted, the impetus for each war, the enemy, how they ended, and the consequences of each war.

  • War of the Realms
    1. Savage Age 5,024,683,439 to Savage Age 5,024,683,805 (Rechristened to the First Age of Unity Year 1.)
    2. When the Realms discovered one another and mistrust pervaded each one.
    3. All Realms were the enemy.
    4. No victors. Ended when leaders discovered message from the Divine Ones that urged unification and free travel between the Realms.
    5. Realms unite under a Federation to protect each other. Earliest iteration of Realmfleet.
  • War of Stars
    1. First Age of Unity 7,304,330,796 to First Age of Unity 7,304,330,802 (Rechristened to the Second Age of Unity Year 1.)
    2. The Splitters of each Realm finally revealed themselves and disdained the use of Realmgates and Skyships.
    3. Realm Federation against all Splitter Branches.
    4. Realm Federation wins with the aerial advantage giving them the needed edge over Splitter ground-based tactics.
    5. Realm Federation becomes Realmfleet.
  • War of the Depths
    1. Second Age of Unity 6,424,556,879 to Second Age of Unity 6,424,557,039 (Rechristened to the Third Age of Unity Year 1.)
    2. Denizens of the After-Realm’s Depths launched an assault on Realmfleet Headquarters, thinking they were starting the Final War.
    3. Realmfleet against Depths Denizens.
    4. The Divine Ones side with Realmfleet in direct attacks against the Depths, giving the victory to Realmfleet.
    5. The Divine Ones take a more active role in mortal affairs.
  • The Final War
    1. Third Age of Unity, 4,006,300,080 to (Unknown end date. Will become the Eternal Age of Unity Year 1.)
    2. Dr. Borg is forever stymied by her limits and intends to break them in a way the Divine Ones would not approve. She contacts Oyed, creates her first Revenant with no damage to her soul, and gathers an army across the Realms to ‘fix’ what the Divine Ones ‘broke’.
    3. Realmfleet against Dr. Borg’s Realm Unity Empire.
    4. Unknown End. Unknown Victors.
    5. Unknown Consequences. All Unknowns will be explained once Final War is over.

Scorpion

An experimental attack cruiser, the BEX-01, Scorpion, is a vessel designed by Dr. Borg for raiding purposes. The first of its class, it’s an experimental ship. It has two claws to grab enemy ships with a docking tube at the front and a concealed weapon at the rear, looking like a scorpion’s tail. The sensor arrays below are modeled after a scorpion’s pectines. The two, blood-red windows indicate where the two helmsmen sit. Not as big as the Endeavor, but it’s enough of a match for it.

Endeavor

Say hello to Arsha’s ship, the Endeavor, registry CRS-2784. It is 641 meters long (25,640 zarruks), 133 meters high (5,320 zarruks), 473 meters wide when in normal flight (18,920 zarruks), and is capable of extending 57 meter long attack wings on each side, thus making its combat width 587 meters (23,480 zarruks). It is a Dauntless-class ship weighing about 6,000,000 metric tons (240,000,000,000 stonaks) and utilizing 42 decks. Its crew compliment ranges from 1,000 to 7,000 during normal duty and has a maximum capacity of 17,000 when evacuating an area. It has four landing struts when it needs to touch down and has a launch bay for the 500 fighter crafts inside its hull. This ship was once under the command of Arsha’s daddy when he was a prince.

Here’s the Bridge Crew.

Captain: Arsha

First Officer: Oak, now Denstra

Helmsman: Nazay

Communications Officer: Shalvey

Diplomat: Laverda

Security Officer: Dalengor

The Three Realms Mathematical Symbols

The number base of The Three Realms is base-25, meaning, on top of having 0 to 9, they have 15 more digits before they have to make a number with 2 digits. This number generator will make things easier. The reason the mathematical symbols (plus, minus, multiply, and divide being such examples) have no separate pronunciations across the Realms is because they are a more recent invention, made AFTER the Realms stopped fighting each other.

The Three Realms Writing Characters

With the symbols of the written languages of The Three Realms comes a little grammar lesson. All 25 characters in each language make up A to Y. For Z and the basic punctuation characters you would repeat a character twice. Z in the Combined Realm Text would be “rere”, the period is “toto”, a question mark is “tata, an exclamation point is “roro”, a comma is “lulu,” the semicolon is “dada”, the colon becomes “gege”, a dash becomes “riri”, the hyphen is “tutu”, a bracket is “gigi”, “dodo” makes a brace, a parentheses becomes “kuku”, the apostrophe is “keke”, a quotation mark is “rara”, and the ellipsis is “tete”. Next up in world building will be the number symbols and their phonetic sounds, then the calendars.

Marshii’s Bio Lectures: Category Specifics

One last lecture with old Doc Marshii, eh? Good. You may start your careers as doctors yet! Now, as I mentioned near the end of previous lectures, this will go into specifics of each scientific category. What that means is we’ll name the categories, find out which species fall under them, and figure out their life-spans.

Because of my species, we’ll start with the Taurs. There are no biological immortals, so we’ll start with those with a 50,000 year lifespan. Us mermaids fall under this category, as do the Cecaelia. Next up are the Nagas. Following that are the Centaurs. Last are the Driders. The other Taur species have a 35,000 year lifespan. That would include the Sconaks, half human; half scorpion. Next up are the Felindras, feline-based Taurs. Next are the Caneers, canine-based Taurs. Last, but not least, are the Shellinaks, shellfish-based Taurs.

Next up comes a category that is full of nothing BUT biological immortals, the Tweeners. These involve Ghouls, Vampires, Werewolves, and Zombies, whatever they originally were before they came back.

Coming up is one I warned you was a tricky category in my first lecture, the Humanoids. The biological immortals in this category would be the Elves and all Fae subspecies. Those that live for about 50,000 would be all Orc subspecies. Humans live about 30,000 to 45,000 years. Dwarves and Gnomes live about 40,000 years. Moliaks, mole-like humanoids, live around 35,000 years. Last come the Amazons, a jungle-dwelling hermaphroditic people taking a female shape that only live around 30,000. They look human, but their internal arrangement IS different and, as I said, they’re hermaphrodites.

Coming in next is the Anthro category. Leons, Lamias, Inus, Selans (Mega-sharks), Nekos, Minotaurs, Anrachnes (spider-based Anthros), and Dragons all live around 45,000 years. Yes, Dragons are part of this category. They can turn into humanoid versions of their usual bestial shape, hence why they’re under the Anthro category.

Myxies are next. No biological immortals here. Kitsunes, Harpies, and Satyrs live about 50,000 years. Gorgons live about 45,000 years. Fauns and Selkies live as long as 40,000. The shortest lived species that is classified as a Myxie race would be the Sphinxes, living around 15,000 years.

The Sentina are the easiest. They’re animals that live up to 25,000 years. As I mentioned before, they can communicate any medical problems like we do and can understand us just fine.

Blenders, as I mentioned, are a mix of species like an Inu mating with a Mermaid. As such, whoever has the slightly more dominant genes will give them the lifespan ranging from biological immortal to 20,000. My best friend’s lifespan, a Neko/Cecaelia Blender, has a lifespan of about 50,000 thanks to his father’s genes being slightly more dominant.

Elementals are next. These would be the Trolls, the beings of mud or lava or water or any other such element, the Dryads and Alarunes, the Ghosts and Spirits (involving Zephyrs and Genies), and the various Demon subspecies like Frostiks, Succubi and Incubi, Oni, Yokai, and Gargoyles. They live about 45,000 years.

The Formless are a little more long-lived. Minimum lifespan in that category is 40,000, and that belongs to Absorbintas, the fungus-based life-forms. Higher up are the Slimes, living about 45,000 years on average. Next up are the Chamelaks, life-forms that sink into and blend in with any material, living up to 50,000 years. Last up are the Luminarees. We call them something else. Wanna know? The Divine Ones! Yes, our Gods have a scientific classification. They’re the biological immortals of the Formless.

Last are the Arties. These are the artificial life-forms. Chimeras, living about 10,000 years, are one part while the Golems, only a 5,000 year lifespan, are the other part of this classification.

Well, that’s enough chit-chat! You’ve heard this old fish talk about the basics that make up her profession as a doctor, now let’s see how well YOU handle it! What sort of creature are you on this scale?

(Real World Author’s note. Now that all the lectures are done, I want you to make your own character and give the character’s scientific classification.)

Marshii’s Bio Lectures: Life-spans

Welcome back to Marshii’s Bio Lectures. Today, we’re gonna talk about the different life-spans of the species of the Realms. We’ll start off with the biological immortals. They can die by any death except old age. Tweeners, Elves, Luminarees and some Blenders fall under this category.

Next are those with a maximum life-span of 50,000 years. Some Taurs, like Mermaids, some Humanoids, some Myxies, and some Blenders fall under this category. Sometimes, you don’t age as gracefully! Look at me! I’m only 35,000, middle-age! Yet I STILL got the gene for getting silver hair and wrinkles early on! Ah, listen to me go on about my age. You’re here for a lecture, not a rant.

Coming up next are those that live up to 45,000 years. Anthros, Elementals like Falnii, some Humanoids, some Myxies like Gorfanth, and some Blenders fall under this category. Queen Elmpam and King Orbak are blessed with such a long life-span.

Those that have a life-span of 40,000 years are the rest of the Formless, some more humanoids like Malnar and Foresna, some more Myxies, and some more Blenders, like Lardeth and Arsha.

At 35,000 years, the rest of the Taurs belong in this category, like the Centaurs and Driders. Their hectic lifestyle is what contributes to this shorter life-span. However, there ARE a few in this category that break it.

The rest of the Myxies have a life-span of 25,000 years. These would involve Satyrs, Kitsunes, and others.

The remaining Blenders have a life-span of 20,000 years. Something in the genes didn’t allow them to enhance their life-span from the parent species. We’re trying to fix that now.

The Sentina only live as long as 15,000 years. Animals generally don’t live as long as most species, this is a fact. Sentinas get a longer life-span because they have the capability to identify, in our manners of speech, what the problem is so doctors can correct it.

Chimeras only live about 10,000 years. Being an artificial race, they don’t have the genes for a longer life. Like the rest of the Blenders, we’re fixing that. I feel an obligation to fix it as I benefitted from research that was conducted through the Chimeras’ suffering.

Last is the life-form that lives only 5,000 years, if they weren’t killed in battle. These would be the Golems, the shock-troopers for all Splitter branches. The only reason they don’t live as long is because we don’t have the research that made them. It’s the most well-protected of Splitter knowledge.

So, that’s the over-view of our life-spans. Next up is my last lecture on the specifics of each scientific category of species. It’s gonna be the dullest, I’ll warn you right now, but you better pay attention. Need I remind you of your assignment? See you soon.

(Real World Author’s note. Once all the lectures are done, I want you to make your own character and give the character’s scientific classification.)

Marshii’s Bio Lectures: Main Classifications

Well, well, well, decided to figure out some biology, did you? You’re asking the right woman. I’m Dr. Marshii Borontho, Lieutenant Junior Grade and Chief Medical Officer aboard the Realmfleet ship, Endeavor, registry CRS-2784, and you’re going to be finding out the different race classifications and which species belongs where. Today’s lecture is just gonna be the basic over-view on the classification system.

Each species is categorized by the common factors that unite them, whether or not they have animal features, whether or not they have a distinctive shape, and whether or not they’re alive. Yes, even the undead are involved. We usually call them Tweeners, they’re in between life and death. Zombies, Vampires, Ghouls, Ghosts, and other such haunts.

Next up will be Taurs, half humanoid, half animal. Us Merfolk are in the Taur category. Another, more obvious example, and a clue as to where we got the name, would be Centaurs.

The next classification is…tricky. I’ll explain in a later lecture. We put Orcs, Goblins, Elves, and Humans into this classification, calling them Humanoids.

Next up is the Anthros, animals that gained a humanoid shape through extraordinary evolutionary circumstances. Inus, Nekos, Selans, and other such life-forms fall under this category. The current Under-Queen is an Anthro.

We then move onto Myxies, a humanoid life-form with animal features. Satyrs, Harpies, and Kitsunes would be examples of a Myxie.

Next, we have the Sentina, animals that can think, reason, and communicate as other life-forms do. Talking horses, telepathic Cerberuses, and other such life-forms. The Under-realm Royal Family has a telepathic Cerberus, hence why I mentioned it.

Next up, Elementals. They’re life-forms usually characterized by, or made of, a certain element. Trolls, Dryads, Alarunes, Zephyrs, and Genies fall under this category.

Coming up, we’ve got the Formless. They have no definitive shape or gender, usually taking on some humanoid characteristics. Some examples are Slimes, Absorbintas, and Luminarees.

Next, we have the Blenders, life-forms that a mix of any species, barring Sentinas. Even though they communicate as we do, mating with a Sentina is still bestiality. Let’s say a Mermaid and an Inu mated. The child would have the Inu’s upper torso and the Mermaid’s tail.

Last is the Arties. They’re artificial life-forms like Chimeras or Golems. Because, long ago, they have proved they can be more than what they were made for, under Realmfleet law, they have the same rights as anyone else. However, recently, only Chimeras got the full extent of rights. Golems…only the three Splitter branches know how to make them. They’re only used as Shock Troopers.

I hope this gave you a basic understanding of how we’re classified scientifically. Next time, we’ll talk about the life-expectancy of each category. Later, we’ll talk about the specifics of each category. Once all the lectures are done, I want you guys to figure out where you place on the system. See you later.

(Real World Author’s note. Once all the lectures are done, I want you to make your own character and give the character’s scientific classification.)
