Oreon Campaign Setting

A system-agnostic RPG campaign setting for a far away middle-fantasy world with a unique magic system.

Solar System

The central star, 'Alial', is a 4.8Gyr old class G5 star in the Milky Way galaxy.

The first planet, 'Seron', is a metal-rich barren planet of 0.08 earth masses at 0.6AU.

The second planet, 'Oreon', is a life-filled planet of 0.8 earth masses at 0.8AU. Its atmosphere is composed of 73% nitrogen, 25% oxygen, and 2% water vapor and trace gases. It has two moons, 'Er' and 'Et', in a 3:1 orbital resonance. Oreon has a thin ring system composed of water ice.

Inbetween the second and third planet is a metal-ice asteroid belt.

The third planet, 'Melon', is a cold, icy planet with a thin nitrogen atmosphere. It weighs 1.2 earth masses and orbits at 2AU. With a warm coat and a source of oxygen it would be possible to walk on its surface.

The fourth planet, 'Apoleon', is a small rocky planet with no atmosphere. It weighs 0.2 earth masses and orbits at 4AU.

Magic

Magic on the world of Oreon is probability manipulation. All living creatures have this ability, though only those with intelligence can understand how to use it at will. The strength of the probability manipulation comes with practice.

Most who learn magic start out with small tricks like influencing leaves to fall from a tree or influencing someone to miss a step and trip. A small minority learn to use this ability at a young age and get a head-start in training their magic ability.

Those who are highly trained can perform amazing feats such as teleporting, summoning things into existence, and even time travel. Magicians of this level are astronomically rare and are often recorded as being incarnate gods.
