A Human’s Guide to Traveling Eartha
Eartha is the story-world of Strayborn, a second Earth, if you will, but one that’s mostly for the mythological human-like races. This guide will help prepare you, should you ever decide to plan a visit.
♦ Ready yourself to see strange things ahead of time, so that you won’t have a gawking look on your face in public and offend someone. It’s rude to stare at people’s ears, antlers, or tails, or even wings.
♦ Keep to public places and public roads. There are slave traders scattered about, who wouldn’t mind adding a human like you to their inventory. Training with a weapon before your travels would be useful.
♦ Get used to the idea of gun-swords. Not every blade is just a blade. Some will fire bullets, so be ready to dodge.
♦ If it’s scenery you want, both the Tanto Mountains and Backbone Mountains offer fantastic views year-round. And if you’re looking for city life, Draethvyle City has a lot to offer with its unique architecture and gothic vibe. But do wear some sort of disguise while there, so no one can tell you’re human. (The city’s residents have been bitter enemies with humans these past centuries)
♦ Does the Asian landscape and culture appeal to you? You will find this and more in Higashi. The kitsune, fox-like people, live there. They’ve been having a rough time, though, with their land bordering the vempars, and slave-traders taking advantage of them.
♦ Never walk alone through the larger forests. If you do, and feroce find you, you’re dead.
And never enter Greater Magica Forest. Just don’t.
♦ If you’re feeling too overwhelmed, and want just a simple trip, keep to the Human Republic’s land, where you will be more welcomed. Try not to be ignorant of their culture and technology, though. It’s different from our world, and you don’t want to look like a fool. They use airships, carriers, and travel-trams for transportation. Don’t be afraid to ride on one. The western coast has beautiful beaches, and parts will remind you of the Mediterranean. The cuisine is reminiscent of Greece.
