Stella: A Brief Introduction Empty Sun May 02, 2021 12:05 am

Stella


Deep in the heart of Stella's verdant jungle lies a treasure beyond imagining. Secure in the ancient Sun City of Nenequetzal, the Immortal Sun is an artifact of mythic power that promises boundless wealth, the strength of the city, command over nature, and eternal life. For centuries it was only dimly remembered, veiled in legend, but now the legend has become reality, people seek the Immortal Sun and the power it promises. They will stop at nothing to claim it for their own.


History


Long ago, before there was a Sun City, settlements arose in several city-states scattered across the lands of Stella. One of the city-states, Nenequetzal, gradually rose to prominence over the others, thanks in large part to the charisma and cunning of its ruler. She began uniting the other cities under her leadership. The ruler transformed the scattered and fractious city-states into the nation of Stella. In this day and age, the city-states of Stella still have their own rulers, however, their sworn fealty to the Sun Kings and Queens of future generations ruling Nenequetzal remains standing.


Culture


Dinosaurs are the dominant animal life of Stella, including apex predators and enormous herbivores as well as small egg-eaters and seed-pickers. The people of Stella live alongside dinosaurs without taming or domesticating them. Whenever a dinosaur moves through a city, it is under someone's direct control—and there's always the risk of it breaking free. This is part of the Sun City's world view: nature is a tool to be wielded, bent to human will, but it is a constant test of will and strength. Nature can't be tamed, but when humans live alongside nature they are made stronger.

Dinosaurs are important to the Sun City's sense of national identity. The people use dinosaur feathers as decorations and as inspiration for design motifs in everything from jewelry to architecture. They believe that the Immortal Sun first gave their priests the ability to call and command the dinosaurs, so maintaining this command is a way of clinging to their ancient heritage. The people of Stella interact with a wide variety of dinosaurs. These include herds of huge, forest-dwelling herbivores, heavily armored quadrupeds, flying dinosaurs, and aggressive bipedal predators. Some can even turn into dinosaurs themselves.


Other


Stellans use carved pillars of Stellarium to mark and protect their territory. From a distance, these totems seem like squat blocks with a hint of humanoid features in the ornamental carvings. When intruders trespass on the lands they are set to guard, though, blue or green light begins to shine from inside the totem, spilling out from cracks formed where separate pieces of Stellarium begin to move apart. Soon the totem fully opens, releasing the elemental energy stored inside. An elemental guardian—a living creature formed of swirling wind, streaming water, or viny growth—takes shape around the totem core. These are powerful guardians, but creating them takes a great deal of work for both the crafting of the Stellarium and the working of magic to bind the elemental spirit to the totem.
