Xanthellaette — Coral Shapers of the Chelon Reefs

Invisible lacework criss-crosses the sea beds of Elqua’s many bodies of water, palpably pulsing with life energies that feed the basic foundations of oceanic ecology and tying together every living thing.  The xanthellae are the chosen ones charged with keeping that primal circulatory system hale and healthy, free of the parasitical feeding of less astute races.  Their role as protector grants them access to the pulse of the Source, and by dipping into the eldritch power that shoots through the silt they can employ coral like clay.

Endless Blue – Week 30 – The Ambusher, Guerilla Fighters of the Sargasso   1 comment

Ambusher — Guerilla Fighters of the Sargasso

Some careers come fully formed out of sheer skill, while others are pure need.  Ambushers are a mix of both — the desperate need to survive in a world utterly turned against them coupled with such raw potential honed to a perfect result.  No other class is so well suited to take advantage of their natural abilities to hide amongst the swaying foliage, only to suddenly turn around and become such a dangerous threat to unsuspecting prey.  Nothing is safe in the cool blue waters of Elqua, not when a whirling dervish of pain could erupt from any direction without so much as a ripple.

Versesinger — Equal’s Primordial Chanters

The Verse is the voice of the primordial ocean, the song of living, the language of creation.  Containing true power, these words formed the basis of everything on Equal, from the coral and the kelp, the Vastness and the Known World.  Their melodious voices can be heard across the seas, harkening in moments of history both wonderful and baleful.

Endless Blue – Week 28 – The Culinist, Farmer of the Fathoms   7 comments

Sociology

Culinist — Farmers of the Fathoms

Culinists are the farmers of the fathoms, wielding aquaculture to produce consumable bounties for piscean life to thrive.  Through cunning manipulation of kelaguen — the tiniest wonder fungi — they can fertilize barren silt, ferment the ubiquitous ricelqua into alcohol, and infuse the unremarkable acari fruit with wonders of magic.

They are cultivators of magic in the truest sense — they raise crops infused with magic.  The fruit of their art can impart spells upon the consumer much like drinking a magical potion, but only after harvest has produced the ripened bevy.

Endless Blue – Week 27 – The Packbreeder, Master of Beasts   6 comments

Sociology

The Packbreeder — Master of Beasts

The packbreeder is a master of beasts, raising and training animals of all kinds to fulfill the needs of Elquan society.  These animal servants either perform menial or back-breaking toil or serve as sources of nourishment for the local populace.  Other creatures get trained as beasts of war, massive slabs of muscle and bone frenzied into killing machines and then let loose on the enemy’s forces.
