Blazing Sun/Tranquil Moon


OOC/SU THREAD
Please read the IC thread first, all the plot is there.

The nature of the world


This world of five parts.
Composed from eight sets of three.
Was made from just two.”
Shaiming Fang on the nature of the world.

Spoiler:

The first thing you must know about this world is that it is born form opposites. From nothingness came the Yin and the Yang. Light and darkness. Day and night. Sun and Moon. Man and woman. Human and Pokemon. The Yin and the Yang compliment each other perfectly as they are perfect opposites. Together they represent unity. They compose eight triagrams which represent the fundamentals of the world. Each of the trigram has a guardian spirit which is a Pokemon of legendary strength. These eight triagrams are split between five elements. Earth is made from the trigram earth and mountain, metal from heaven and lake and wood from wind and lightning. Fire and water contain only the matching trigram. At this time Pokemon were split between these five elements, rather than the seventeen now known.

Each of the five elements is strong against two others, weak against two others and normal against it's self. These two weaknesses and resistances form two cycles around the diagram above. The two cycles are know as the greater cycle and the lesser cycle.
Greater Cycle
Fire >> Wood >> Water >> Metal >> Earth >> Fire
Lesser Cycle
Fire > Metal > Wood > Earth > Water > Fire
The greater cycle show which elements are very effective against each other while the lesser cycle show which are only slightly more effective. So for example fir is most effective against wood. Slightly less effective but still at an advantage against metal. Neither at an advantage nor disadvantage against it's self. Slightly disadvantaged against water and at a large disadvantage against earth.

The empires


Spoiler:
Blazing Sun is a highly military nation, most men start training as soldiers or in either martial arts from a very young age. It is also a highly spiritual nation, those that don't join the army often become monks. Though it is rare female soldiers and martial-artists have been known. The people of the empire are known for their strong sense of honour, especially in family issues. Often they're considered a hot headed people.

Tranquil Moon is an enlightened nation, it has a vast number of scholars and alchemists. It's people shun anything to do with the military so martial arts are rarely practised. The nation on a whole is also not spiritual. The people have a much more lenient sense of honour in Tranquil Moon. They are known for being calm and collected and very often passive to the point of inaction.

Brilliant Star is an empire where honour comes first. The governed by Shoguns who report to the emperor himself. It has many schools of sword ship where the nobles train but also there are reports of underground schools teaching weapons to peasants. The people of Brilliant Star are aspiring for greatness in service of the emperor. They are warm hearted but should not be insulted for fear of offending their honour.

Unyielding Earth is a large collection of nomadic clans. Normally a peaceful people there are times when a ruler has united the clans as a warrior nation. Their mounted archers are the best and most numerous in the land. The people have no sense of honour but should not be trifled with. They are stubborn and like an angry Taruos once they get going they cannot be stopped. This goes for individually as well as for the empire.

Refined Heaven is a deeply spiritual nation, it is also very enlightened. Monks and scholars learn there where often martial arts are taught alongside meditation or calligraphy. They keep largely to themselves rarely straying from their monasteries and cities. They are honourable but prefer not to hurt people so are less volatile that the people of Blazing Sun and Brilliant Star. Other than that not much is know about them as they are so rarely seen throughout the lands.
