In the middle of the Akhem ocean there is a very large island, called Fraet. In the olden days, the regions of Fraet were shaped by the divine fae, a mystical race of fairies. Fraet was shaped into four regions, centered around Laurel bay. Linlake being the biggest and most prominent of all of the regions, centered in the very middle of Laurel bay, more or less governs the other 3 regions. Each region has it's own ruler. Linlake has a royal family, as well as Facilya, a waterway kingdom on the very tip of Laurel bay. Alaurwen, being a small mystic village in the middle of a very vast swamp, has a chief. Lothelian, a vast city sitting on top of a mountain, has a governor. This region is primarily occupied by humans. There are very few known mystical beings in the region. The two known instances of magic creatures in the region are: the unicorns that Linlake raises as amusement for the royal family, and the divine fae which are treated almost as deities. Every human being is visited by a member of the divine fae when they are born. The fae give each human an amulet on their day of birth. Your amulet is tied to your life force, meaning if someone breaks your amulet, you die. However, each amulet also gives you one power to use as you seem fit. Each human's amulet is different. The fae decide what sort of amulet you are given based on your lineage and your foreseen future. However, each amulet has it's limits. None are all powerful. The elemental amulets only allow you to control existing pieces of that element. For example, you cannot conjure water, you must be near a stream or puddle. There are also amulets enhancing normal human emotions and skills, such as the amulet of charisma, or the amulet of perfect teeth. You may also have a 'spirit animal' amulet, meaning you can transform into the one animal of your amulet. The amulets are extremely unequal and you are stuck with what you get. At the moment the regions are at a very tense peace. The 3 regions surrounding Linlake are beginning to get fed up with the way that the largest region demands a share of their main export, for free. Linlake keeps all of the best food and livestock to themselves, viewing the other regions as inferior. Surrounding the 4 regions, effectively cutting off all access to the other side of the island is Aeniasu, the forest of the fae. This is where the fae reside. It is filled to the brim with all sorts of abandoned temples dedicated to the fairies. It is also a black hole. Many expeditions have been forged to make it to the other side of the forest, but none have ever been heard from again.
(Note) Keep in mind that although this is a fictional world I want to keep it gritty and mysterious. It's medieval times, therefore, women have a certain role and are expected to keep to it. The men are dirty, sometimes very vile and treacherous. Monarchs can and do whatever they want. There is no one to police the people except for the guards of the kingdom or region and most of them are useless.
1. NO GM'ING. That goes especially with your amulets.
2. Try not to go crazy with the cuss words
3. I have the right to say no to any amulet ideas
4. I do not mind a little romance but for heaven's sake try to make your plot more interesting than just a simply Mary-Sue plot.
(If you've read these put the words 'Fraet is for the strong-hearted and the fae' somewhere in your CS)

Linlake: Linlake is the biggest kingdom sitting on top of the river that flows from the middle of Laurel bay. The city is a round walled in city. The farmlands are confined to 1/4 of the city while the other 3/4 is residential. The poorer village people live closer to the wall, the houses getting richer and more extravagant as you move in toward the center. In the center, in the middle of the river is Linlake castle. The river forms a natural moat and it is a huge and stately testament of royalty. The region of Linlake is known for their agriculture and their breeding and keeping of unicorns.
