Karia Vitalus was a lush paradise flowing with mana just 200 years ago, before the Cheldrun arrived. Back then the planet was covered in verdant growth and towering violet forests. The Vorax soared through the skies and Zipsums skippered in every lake and stream. The wise Dusk Sages cared for each living thing and maintained the careful balance which allowed Karia to flourish. But that’s all gone now.
The races of Karia Vitalus are divided into two groups: the Karians and the Cheldrun. Karians come in many shapes, sizes, colours and forms. They use magic, change shape, fly and do other amazing things. The Cheldrun are all humanoid though of various appearances. They do not use magic, but have amazing technology to employ.
A race of former space travellers who fled for their lives from some unspeakable evil. Landing on Karia they made it their last home and refuge, building enormous cities and technological wonders. They are divided into three equal, but distinct castes: Allskins, Biomade, Mechified.
A diverse and whimsical race, the Karians are the original inhabitants of this world. In decline now because of the rapid growth of Cheldrun settlements many of the Karians are dying and becoming TeeShee. Most of the others, excepting the Anakarix and the Prill can metamorphose between their humanoid and animal forms.
