Lore[edit | edit source]

The crystal from Herelsor's Plaza

In Heryon, crystals are sacred, and revered as houses of the gods and receptacle of their power. Crystals are the source of magic, and can be used to perform spells and miracles.They can be found everywhere on the continent, from forests to plains, swamps, or cities. In daily life, each household possess a crystal that can be used to vote, sign petition, and participate in politics.

Crystals used to be a commodity reserved to an elite. Back then, there was no way to cut and extract crystals. As a result, most crystals were impossible to move. Sometimes, people were lucky to find a crystal small enough to be transportable, and fetch them for a high price to the rich.

One of the most impressive feat realised with crystals dated back to 1500 years. At the time, a gigantic meteor was menacing Heryon, threatening to crash and destroy the continent in one cataclysmic strike. In an ultimate resort, people began to pray to the Gods, begging them to save the population from such a terrible fate. So many put their heart and soul in those prayers that the crystals performed a miracle, and the meteor was deviated, crashing in a deserted area.

Among the debris of the meteor, a metal was found that was strong enough to break and cut the crystals. This was the beginning of a golden age of harvest. Mining began, and crystals were now more affordable to the point that everyone could get one.

But the easy access to crystals launched a civil war in the continent, factions fighting for the crystals, notably the county of Astyria, famous for its artisans and jewelers. In the end, the Consort took charge of crystal management, a feat the organisation still perform today.
