    XENEDRIA LOCATIONS


    Xenedria is a large, vibrant, lush planet full of various terrains. Because it has been settled by many different species, there are many different sets of social structures, technology, and environments around the planet that people may choose to live in. Though each environment was primarily settled by certain species, anyone of any species may live in any location. Travel around the large continent (roughly the size of all of North America) is fairly quickvia the use of public transportation shuttles that go from city to city or one's own private vehicles. Travel from Sekyr to Lei'rhan (roughly the distance from Alaska to Texas) is a 2 hour trip in a public transport shuttle. Personal vehicles may be slower or faster. Ground vehicles would take about 3 days to cover the same distance.

    ACHENAR
    user posted image
    Achenar is the central and largest sprawling city in Xenedria. It is here that most people live and work, where most trading and business takes place, and where almost all incoming slaves are processed and sold to eager buyers. There is everything here from strip clubs to opera houses and the residences range from run-down apartments to mansions and manors. Along the east side of Achenar, where the city gives way to mountain, is Overpoint where the wealthy and prosperous live. Around the edges of the large city are the suburbs with suburban families. In the inner city is the large disparity between wealthy, flashy businesses and run-down, cramped, poor housing options (as well as very fancy housing options in buildings like fancy hotels and condominiums).


    THUNDERVALE
    user posted image
    Primarily settled by Humans, Thundervale lies along a gorgeous jagged coast with rolling hills and a spectacular view of the sea beyond. Humans favor modern technology overall and have a decent central city that is open and welcoming to anyone of any species as well as a lot of open space for modern farming or the quiet of the more rural life.


    LEI'RHAN
    user posted image
    Lei'rhan is the forest lands settled primarily by the Eridani people. They favor the lush and natural, preferring magic over technology and architecture that is one with the natural world around them, though some people still utilize technology in these areas.


    KIROL
    user posted image
    The settlement of the Okul people is located on a high desert mesa, overlooking the vast expanse of sands and dunes beyond. The architecture is primarily practical, like the Okul, and is mostly made of stone. They favor modern technology.


    SEKYR
    user posted image
    Sekyr is built as the base of an active volcano nestled in a long mountain ridge. This area was settled by the Saedrans who favor dark, sharp angled architecture and an even mix of arcane magic and modern technology.


    ANTAS

    Antas is a city built beneath the planet's surface, populated by those with a preference for the cool and soothing underground. Their technology is modern.

XENEDRIAN CULTURE


Xenedria is a heavily multi-cultural melting pot of different species and cultures all living in relative harmony with one another. Though Eridani, Okul, Humans, and Saedrans vastly outnumber all other species, there are still many, many different species living on the planet, with the slave trade bringing more in all the time.


SLAVE TRADE
Xenedria was settled about 200 years ago by a coalition from the four main species (Eridani, Okul, Human, and Saedran) who wanted a central location from which they could all work together in equal measure to centralize the slave trade. They built Achenar first and then each species built its own settlement to encourage others of their species to come to Xenedria to support the growing economy.

Much like mining or railroad towns a hundred years ago, everything on Xenedria is built around the slave trade or supporting those involved in the slave trade. That is the focus. If someone doesn't work in the slave trade themselves on Xenedria, someone in their family does or they have a job or business that provides entertainment, or healthcare, or material goods, or something for those that ARE involved in the slave trade. Xenedria is a Slaving Colony and people live there to support that economy or they move elsewhere.


EDUCATION
As children most of those growing up on Xenedria learn via whatever methods their species uses at home. Pleaase read through the species information about your species to learn more about that. There are not elementaries or high schools or colleges or universities on Xenedria. It is a slave trade colony, not a place where people come to get a higher education. People would leave Xenedria to get a higher education in most cases, then come back if they choose to such as a Human going to Earth to study a trade or a Saedran traveling back to Sargas to apprentice with an Expert for a few decades.


TRADE
As mentioned above, the majority of any kind of business or trade would directly revolve around the slave economy.
Because this is 1000+ years in the future and humans are equally balanced by every other major species, you would not see highly human concepts like lawyers or police officers or things of that nature. You would, however possibly see more futuristic, general versions of things that fulfill needed functions. If you're wanting to play with this, consider a futuristic version and how the cultures of the Okul, Saedrans, and Eridani would all affect what it would look like,
as they also had a say in every part of Xenedrian society.


HEALTHCARE
Xenedria has the height of medical technology. There are extremely few ailments that cannot be healed through technology, Eridani healing, or any other species with healing abilities. Medical centers are specially designed to cater to ALL species.

Normal modern diseases and illnesses (both mental and physical) do not exist or can be easily treated. Prosthetics are extremely advanced and look and function exactly like real limbs.

If you're wanting a reason for your character to be injured or sick, try to come up with something new and alien.
If you're wanting a chronic condition, talk to an admin.

We do have a low tolerance for mental disorders, forewarning. Perhaps find another way to achieve what you're wanting to with a mental illness, without actually giving them a mental illness. A lot of things can be done through simply giving them personality traits rather than giving those traits a modern, mental illness label.


LAW ENFORCEMENT
Xenedria does have law enforcement, but very few things are illegal on Xenedria and the law enforcement is fairly lazy and often corrupt. Xenedria is a place that primarily polices itself. If you do something wrong to someone, they may come after you. Law enforcement almost never gets involved and can usually be bribed pretty easily if they do.

Weapons trade, drugs, prostitution, and so on are all fully legal (what else do you expect in a place that not only accepts slavery, but is built around the idea?). The only illegal things are killing/assaulting free people, kidnapping/enslaving free people, and stealing property and slaves from free people.


SOCIAL CONSTRUCTS
It can be hard to separate ourselves from our modern ideals, but Xenedria is set 1000 years in the future and a mix of many different alien cultures that all overlap and mesh with each other. Dynamics such as modern gender roles and ideas, sexism, homophobia, and many other current ideas are simple nonexistent. There are too many species without gender or sexual norms that even if somehow humans maintained their same stereotypes and prejudices today (which is unlikely, if you consider how much has changed even in the last 100 years), the mixture of other cultures on Xenedria would largely cancel those out.

If you are wanting to play with a dynamic that your character was somehow discriminated against, consider what kinds of things people might single each other out for in such a futuristic, mixed society built around slave culture on a relatively new, not heavily populated planet.

BEYOND XENEDRIA


Xenedria is the primary setting for the RPG (hence the name! lol) but characters can come from other places as well, including the primary planets for their species as well as colonies for those species and colonies for mixed species. Each species has information about their home planet in their species information as well as a defined canon and culture that must be followed. Players may also make up colonies with more varied cultures to suit what works for their character, within reason, and so long as it makes sense within the overall setting. As always, feel free to contact an admin if you have an idea and want to make sure it will work within the setting.
