Culture

An overview of the inhabitants of the planet
Legend:
Five gods are credited with the creation of the world of Cantha. The gods lived originally alone on the planet's surface, creating land and sea and creatures within. The last of the creatures created by the gods were the humanoid Canthan race. Upon completion of the planet the five gods left Cantha to allow their new race to live peacefully. Before leaving each god bestowed a different magical gift upon the race creating within each Canthan the chance to have a unique race.
Races:
Healers/Monks. God Attributed - Dwayna the goddess of Life
The Healers employ a direct conduit to the gods, and the answers to their prayers come in the form of healing and protection. This race has the ability to heal wounds and diseases by touch. They are typically calm and understanding in nature and lack the ability to cause conflict. They worship all of the gods in turn taking their specific power directly from the goddess Dwayna. This race overseas the well being and harmony on the planet and keeps peace between the races.
(Note: The Healing race was murdered and made extinct before the war with Saroya specifically to erase the good nature of the Canthan people. Only one Healer child remains because at the time he was living off planet.)

Elementalists- God Attributed- Kormir
Elementalists summon the powers of earth, air, fire, and water and command them at will. This race can create the elements as needed. They can also use the knowledge of these elements to effect the weather and growth of vegetation. Elementalists are typically very intelligent and truthful.

Politics

An overview of the territorial claims and governing power of the planet
The vast Empire of the Dragon which resides on the planets one continent contains hundreds of thousands of people in multiple cities. One Emperor rules over the cities found here, however to keep Cantha running effectively, a bureaucracy is in place. This bureaucracy is known as the Celestial Ministry. The Celestial Ministry is divided into five smaller Ministries, each one devoted to a different aspect of Cantha's imperial government. These ministries have been created over several hundred years to meet certain needs that the Celestial Ministry could not handle do to the diverse differences between Canthan classes, meaning each Ministry is tied to specific powers.
