I hope it isn't terribly forward of me to ask, as I am an outsider just venturing into your beautiful world, but where might I learn more about Novaria? It sounds like a wonderful place.

thank you,

Re: Novaria

I have been racking my brains for places one might read about Novaria, but I cannot think of anything in Elektraspace that deals with Novaria exclusively, though, of course, it is often mentioned.

This is a pity, because Novaria is a very beautiful southern nation. Her southern coastline is on the Golden Sea and in the north the mighty river Thamëaut runs through her on its way to Trent. There are many beautiful lakes such as the great Ushasti.

Two languages are spoken in Novaria: Westrenne (which is very like our English) and Raihiralan Cairenne. Most Westrenne-speaking Novarians speak with a Raihiralan accent even if they do not speak Raihiralan. The nation has very strong ancestral ties with the East, and in many ways is the most traditional of the Western nations. It is also, however, by far the most technically advanced. One will find there many things from family skyjets to personal force-fields ("auries") with temperature control, allowing blondes to walk abroad even in the harsh mountain winters in light and fashionable clothes from the south.

If you have any particular questions, please do ask.
