Welcome. You have stumbled upon the wiki for writing the unfinished lore of Taerel, a world set after a vampire outbreak decimated the zu'aan and caused the fall of zu'aan people, and sent them back to the stone age. The world has worked on since 2016 and started on FANDOM before being moved from FANDOM to self hosted and Miraheze.
"The kin'toni of the Clans are living beings infected with a complex parasitic organism that is in some ways like a virus, and in other ways like a malformed prion. The infection is derived from highly refined nanotech-altered conventional hantavirus packets, loaded with specifically altered prion packages as well as RNA designed to override most cellular data. In return, the mutated cells produced by the viral component are shifted to allow the prion to link and interface with them. This is known as tetramutagenic parasymbosis, Folklore has always stated kin'toni have specific weaknesses—running water, stakes, holy symbols, etc.
As with most folklore this is completely incorrect and is based mostly on cultural distaste for such things as well as practicality. kin'toni have low buoyancy due to the changes in their bodies and thus most clans dislike large bodies of water. (although since they no longer need to breathe this is somewhat moot, and some clans have adapted to water living). n The main weakness of a kin'toni'ati creature is sunlight, or more specifically, high intensity UV radiation. UV radiation is capable of penetrating far enough into a kin'toni body to break protein bonds and denature the RNA fragments that convert living cells to kin'toni'ati ones—resulting in the body rejecting its own tissue."
The Shattering Age
In the year 2E 3000, the cataclysmic fall of civilisation across Terael happened, as the kin’toni, horrid gene engineered beasts escaped the labs of the Zaual-Arae City, they spread like wildfire through Juare, then the Zelan Landmass, then over the world. Made in the labs of the Empire as a gene engineered superweapon to be used to fight their rivals, the Kaa’ora Kingdom, a Kindom of shining stone and golden spires.
The zu’aan empire was an grand empire of vast proportions and much might, both of military and economic types. But this superweapon was their big mistake that started their fall from grace. As the kin’toni clans grew in number, the fires of the Awakening burn as the zu’aan flee the vampyric breasts… the tribes of the olden times flee deeper into the wilds.
Their strange mutations gave them strange power, such as flight, having the ability to live underwater or other superhuman powers. From ways ranging from sickness to hunger to lack of water, many people die. And of course, many perish from kin’toni drinking them dry in maddened fits of hunger. That is if they are not left alive to turn. The population is much reduced by the apocalyptic cataclysm.
Weapons of war, both old and new are used in the war between the two races, the world is divided into the kin’toni clans, the feared beasts of the wilds, the tribal zu’aan, the wanderers of the wilds. The weapons used are ranging from spears and bows to guns and mounted weapons, even the feared atomics are used, weapons of great and terrible power. Under the powers of the atomic weapons, long outlawed and controlled and never used in fear of destruction for all, the cities of old are shattered and blackened.The nations of old fall as warring tribes of zu’aan and of packs, bands, clans, and even vast hordes of kin’toni. They both wage war on each over. when will this seemingly endless war end?
