Welcome to Amsteil.
Though years of interbreeding and racial dilution have bred all Humans into genetically similar beings, the various countries of the continent of Amsteil have drastically different cultures and hold genetic roots that can greatly distinguish single humans based on their ancestry.
The Deid-Kin, or “Elves” as Humans commonly refer to them, are a group of humanoid beings supposedly created in a jealous fit by several of the other gods. Throughout this Wiki these species will generally be reffered to by the name commonly used amongst Humans.
The magic of Amsteil is based around the manipulation and expenditure of manna, the body’s vital essence. This section will detail the different “families” of magic and the subtypes within them as well as light magical theory and mechanics within the setting.
The World of Amsteil is very much run according to its mythology and religious beliefs, and as such, it deserves mention and explaination.
