Arcania was crafted by the gods in the First Era, known as the Age of Origin. The gods imbued the world with their power and the magic of the Gemstones, which are minerals infused with metaphysical energy and magical properties. These Gemstones are the key to unlocking the full potential of the five elements that exist in Arcania: earth, water, fire, air, and akasha.
Each being in Arcania is born with an affinity for one of these elements, and the elements are linked to the Gemstones. Earth represents stability, grounding, and practicality; Water symbolizes emotions, intuition, and the unconscious mind; Fire stands for passion, transformation, and energy; Air pertains to communication, intellect, and the power of thought; and Akasha is often tied to the spiritual realm and beyond.
In the Second Era, the Age of Affinities, the inhabitants of Arcania began to discover their individual connections to the five elements. This led to the rise of different civilizations, such as elves, dwarves, and humans, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses.
The Third Era, the Age of Discovery, was a time of great exploration and advancement. Adventurers and scholars sought to unlock the power of the Gemstones and create new and powerful artifacts. Magic reached new heights during this era.
However, as the power of the Gemstones grew, so did tensions between the various races of Arcania. The Fourth Era, the Age of Conflict, was marked by wars and strife as factions fought for control of the Gemstones and their power.
The gods intervened in the Fifth Era, the Age of Balance, striking a bargain with the races to restore peace to the realm. This era saw the races working together to unlock the full potential of the Gemstones and the magic they held.
This is the current era of GemScape, where players must embark on their own journey to explore Arcania, find the Gemstones, and determine the fate of the realm. Whether they choose to work together or compete against each other, the outcome of this epic journey will shape the future of Arcania and its inhabitants.
