Tmaras A land of kings

The War of Lorath brought the world of Tmaras to its knees, Started by destruction of the Gilathi holding stone and the murder of Lorath the Divine, the Kings of Tmasan fought for the control of the Gilathi bearers. At the end of the nearly forty summers war three kingdoms had fallen into ruin and a forth was (quite literally) wiped off the map. At the point where no nation could fight any longer, a pact to create the Court of Kings was written. And the governments of the old world, fell to dust.

The world of Tmaras is one of the many realms that could have been. In this world the huge continent only split rarely and into small pieces. Although the amount of space is huge the number of people is far smaller than you would expect. This is due to the harsh land and the hardy peoples that live there. They have little in the ways on lovely weather. The plains are battered with winds and in the northern regions the snow and ice is brutal. Tropic storms are rare yet when they come they are called by a fitting name, End Storms. the oceans many nations sail are deep and mysterious, the massive animals that stem forth from the depths are able to thrash entire fleets. Yet the peoples, for all of the things that have and will go against them, are strong and proud of the world they have made.

The Planet of Tmaras

The language of Tmaras is a very smooth sounding language. With a beautiful script, very few can learn to write in the caligriphetic style. The regular script is still the same as the artisans style just with less flourishes and no connections. The peoples are taught from a very young age to be able to speak and write. Unlike on earth where reading and writing is not important in all cultures, a person that a cannot read or write is considered less than human in every land. So the language of Vel if taught to all.

Food is the corner point of any culture you look at. Many places people eat at in Tmaras, when not at home, are small open sided restaurants. Called Tegas, most are family owned and operated. The most expensive ones in the city however can be run by trained chefs and their workers. The food in Tmaras is heavily based on where you are at. In Sares the food is spicy and light, In Talesh it is hardy and filling. Travel food, if you will. Anywhere you go there will be food, so why would it not change with the cultures.

Entertainment in Tmaras is... interesting. In the darker parts of the world fighting pits, death games, and assassin tracking are all forms of entertainment. At the rich communities, it can range from music in taverns to plays on stage. Many kids are taught to play instruments from a young age, and minstrels get payed well by high end tavern owners.

Education is another major part of Tmaras. Anyone can be welcomed into schools of learning, if they can prove they have the will to learn. Students can be let in to starting schools at as young of an age as 5 and into final schooling at the age of 50. Even though it can be difficult to get in at different ages, it can be done. Many schools are run by monks of other learned individuals in certain subjects yet a select few, that are much lesser known, can teach you to be more than human.

The monks of the gods are solemn quiet persons. There are three gods, each of a different value in part of man. The god of the body is Sen, The god of the mind Tae and, The god of spirit is Vel. Each of the gods has different colors to represent them. Once a year there is the festival of The Rebirth where the monks of each sect come together to chose the new monks for their year of training. Monks are taught to meditate and how to focus on their gods part of the body. The gods are seen as the true religion of the land, yet people tend to be ok with variations on the base principles.

The government of Tmaras has changed in recent times. After the War of Lorath the governments of the "Old World" fell and a new kind rose from the ashes. Called the Court of Kings is works as such. The lands of each individual king are kept yet no laws can be made in each individual land without a vote from the court. Each kingdom has to give representatives to the court. From each country one person from each working class is chosen to serve in the court for life. A kings representative is also chosen but on major issues the Rulers themselves will sometimes go to the court. The court acts as its own micro nation and cannot be attacked or sabotaged through pact of treaty. There are Nine nation that have persons in the court, Eight true nations and the court itself has a set of representatives to make split votes impossible.

The judicial system changes from nation to nation. Some of them use something resembling the Court, others use trial by fire type judgement. Along with the forms of judgement the militaries are separate to each nation. Many nations are of the same size and population, yet most are heavily varied in type of persons and land forms.

The currency in Tmaras is only one singular type for all lands, Due to The Court. It is made of coins of different sizes and materials. A klat (the smaller size of coin) is worth much less then a ket (the larger size) A bronze klat is enough to get you a slice of bread yet a bronze ket could get you the whole loaf. The metals are as such and are worth more as you go up the order. Copper, Bronze, Iron, Steel, Silver, and Gold. Both types are thick yet kets have a much larger diameter. (about the size of a one dollar coin, Whereas klats are just a little bit smaller then a quarter.

The jobs in Tmaras follows heavily with the food and goods industry. Due to the fact that they are advanced in tech (relatively speaking, you know middle age times and all) they need little in the ways of powering things, due to objects like water wheels and warp stones (read the book) Due to the fact that the food and plats in Tmaras are huge the agriculture business is small but booming. This ties into jobs such as field owners, workers, and transporters. The classes have huge variations in the times of jobs they do yet it seems to be a common theme that they are all for society, and little for personal gain.

The world of Tmaras is both like and unlike yours during the Middle age. The peoples thrive, yet struggle, Work and play, and fight for what they believe is right. They have religion, they have sects, and they pray. They want nothing more than to be the best they can, yet unlike us. they almost have perfect peace, they care not for how you dress, how you act (unless like a fool) and who you care for. So we see. they are perfect yet flawed, peaceful yet protective, and most of all, kind caring folk across the planet.
