Re: Some info on the World of Fuhe

1000 years ago, the Ki Wars rocked the continent of Fuhe. To most of the people, it was a war between the Fuheans, who won, The ɣø Empire, to the east of the Fuhean homeland, and the Momčalsumai Empire, to the southwest, dragged into the war by some factions of the upstart Fuheans raiding their politically unstable empire, and the Ćaulaosz invading from the south. But what most, except some members of the Fuhean upper stratum, is that there was another player: The Aimdul Empire, who lived in the Aimuturu Desert to the north of the Momčalsumai, forbidden for entry because of "safety" reasons. They are remembered as a rogue Fuhean Faction, who lived in the Desert, practicing "Dark Ki". But the Aimdul Empire was real, and they had dark desert cities, ruling from their capital of Kadâth, worshiping "The Dark Beings of Pure Ki" as gods. Their invasion of the crumbling Empire to the south, going over the Wasteland of Leng, peaked the interest of the Fuheans, followed by the ɣø Empire. That is the true story of the "Ki Wars".
I will state here that the Aimdul are inspired by the Cthuhlu mythos, inserted into the World of Fuhe, however, instead of being actual gods, the gods are beings of pure evil Ki: Ki being the lifeforce, and the Continent of Fuhe being a center of Ki, insofar that people on it, or on islands or landmasses near it can manipulate it, and it being the contact point of the Beings of Pure Ki with the physical world. Thus indeed the Aimdul worshiped a Being of pure evil Ki called Kquhlu [Cthuhlu[, who they see as the god of the ocean, but one who is waiting to give "great outpourings of Ki" to his devotees when "the time is right"; this being told to them by Nyung ralat Khotep "The god of the secret" [Nyarlathotep], a being of pure evil Ki, who is their main communicator. Many Fuheans "in the know" believe that Nyung ralat Khotep is the only "Being of pure evil Ki", who created a pantheon for the Aimdul, for his own reasons.
The Aimdul society was centered on the belief that they were the "Superior race" as they were the only ones capable of understanding "The wisdom of Yog-Sothoth and his speaker, Nyung ralat Khotep" . They allowed other "races", that is ethnic groups, to live among them, as second class citizens. What they hated more then "inferior races" was them "Breeding" as each "Race" had an "error in wisdom" that if combined, could be disastourous. Thus, all children of the affairs between two "Races" were enslaved. If the "Superior Race" bred with an "Inferior race" the latter and the child had to be buried alive, though there was no penalty for the former; rape of the "inferior races" was, in fact, encouraged.

Ki, or the Aimdulite Cak'ra, is the lifeforce that all life in the World of Fuhe emit. It is not like Star Wars' Force, though it is based on similiar IRL sources and traditions. Instead of life creating it, it allows life to exist, in seperate, unbound packets. It comes in three levels of strength, from weakest to strongest: Vegetable (Non-Eukaryotes, Kingdoms Plantae, Fungi, Protista,Chromista and members of Animalia that don't have a complex nervous system.) Animal, and Sapient- there is one Sapient species, Humans.

The continental plate that most of the continent of Fuhe rests on is special: Humans can control their Ki there, with rigorous exercises. The reason for this is unknown; a IRL scientist might conclude that it is where land-based life first florished; Fuheans believe that either the first animal or Person was created by G-d there; The Aimdulites believed that it was where Yog-Sothoth first "touched" Azathoth's creation and placed Kquxu off the coast.

The Kätänä-to-Kinu-Mutai, the sole controllers of using Ki on Fuhe proper (Though the M'aillysites, living on a part of another continent that is on the edge of the Fuhean Plate, have weak control) categorize Ki, somewhat artifically in two ways: The first axis, which I will call the Control axis, is divided between Urutunu-Ki or "Life Ki" and Rurunu-ki, or "Inorganic Ki". The former is Ki that allows control of one's body, communion with other humans' Ki or with Animal Ki. The Latter allows one to control Vegetable Ki, and imbue non-living objects with one's own Ki. The Second Axis, the Moral Axis is divided between Usable Ki and Dark Ki. The former is that Ki which uses logic or positive emotions. The latter is a cover term for a. Ki that comes from Negative emotions and b. Animal and/or Vegetable Ki that "manifests" on its own.

The beings of pure Ki are figures that come from humans living in Fuhe. The Seer's stone allows one to commune with those of Usable Ki. Dark beings of pure Ki are those produced by negaive emotions or an unexplained "manifestation" of Animal and/or Vegetable Ki. The Aimdulites worshipped the former as gods, though many of the Kätänä-to-Kinu-Mutai suspect only one was "real": Nyung ralet Khotep, who told the Aimdulites of a full pantheon, for unknown reasons, some saying that it made it easier for it to bend them to its will if they don't know the full nature of it, others saying that the others were other "aspects" of it. Others of the Kätänä-to-Kinu-Mutai believe that some were created by Nyung ralet Khotep, as fictions, but the others were real, but lesser in power then it. Note that the Kätänä-to-Kinu-Mutai has covered-up the existence of the Aimdulite empire, and only its members who are "need-to-know" or of a high enough rank know of it and Nyung ralet Khotep.
