SWORDSFALL - AN AFROPUNK SCI-FANTASY SETTING
Swordsfall is a setting born from a mixture of love and frustration with fantasy lore. The focus point of a lot of the Low or High Fantasy that we have come accustomed to all has a distinct Eurocentric flavor to it.
It's been something that a lot of us have grown up with and enjoyed over the years.
World Anvil - Sacred Trees
More than just trees, they are guarded by Tikor itself
The second prompt from this year's Summer Camp is here! For this one I wanted to dive more into the environment and a little lore around it.
Within the green lands of Garuda there lies something more treasured than Azurean or gems. A variety of trees venerated above all living life in the land. The Sacred Trees of Garuda. These trees are not just a single line, but a group of various types that are all considered sacred to the land. This group includes the Somber Tree, Crescentshot, and Eternals. Each one of these trees are renowned for their beauty and importance to day to day life.
While the genus of the Sacred Trees is not fully known, all records and lore point to The Great Somber Tree as perhaps the first tree. Or more importantly the most divine. The oldest living tree on Tikor lies at the center of the metropolis, Emerald Nest, as a centerpiece. One of the wonders of the world. The Karu believe that its seeds are the origin for all fauna on not just Garuda, but the world. Many Soulcarvers look to the ancient tree as a guiding light for interactions with nature.
