WELCOME TO GEMLANDIA

One hundred years after the end of the Great Gem Blender War, Gemlandia finds itself in a period of relative peace and prosperity. The Ten State Agreement ended the war by dividing the land: nine states now control the mining and distribution of a specific gem types, and one state acts as a haven for those opposed to blending culture. Get ready to begin your Gem Blending adventure!

THE NINE BASIC GEMS

Gemlandian culture revolves around gems that contain different types of stored energy. Across Gemlandia, these gems are mined and collected. On their own, gem energies can be harnessed for limited powers to assist in everyday life, but they have primarily found use as religious talismans and currency.

Each gem has its own history and characteristics. Hover over the gems below for a closer look at what they mean to Gemlandians.

AQUAGEM

The Aquagem is an elemental gem that contains the energy of water. It was one of the first gems to be harnessed by humans, and proved especially useful for developing societies in allowing for the purification and control of water supplies. There are slight variations between Aquagems depending on what type of body of water it comes from.

TERRAGEM

When harnessed by humans, the Terragem results in increased muscle mass and a greater sensitivity to ones biological surroundings. Essential to farmers for growing crops, this elemental gem continues to be a major factor in the development of food sources for communities across Gemlandia.

PYROGEM

The true power of the Pyrogem resides in its stored kinetic energy, allowing for increased speed and faster reflexes. Along with the Aquagem and the Terragem, the Pyrogem is the third primary elemental gem. The speed and efficiency forged by the Pyrogem remain critical for strong and functioning economies.

LUCIOGEM

The natural complement to the Nocturnagem, the Luciogem is a transcendental gem that is equally obscure. Touching the gem produces feelings of comfort and warmth. Excessive use of the gem often leaves individuals entranced and lethargic, addicted to the effects. Throughout history, the Luciogem has spurred many religious followings.

AEROGEM

Aerogem deposits form as close to the sky as possible. Aerogems are physical gems that contain the energy of winged animals, often blending to result in drastic changes to the body such as hollow bones, wings, talons, and feathers. Flight is the key ability gained by Aerogem blends, followed by increased agility and a sensitivity to weather.

NOCTURNAGEM

A difficult gem to wield, the Nocturnagem is a transcendental gem that contains dark energy. Shrouded in mystery, many things are still unknown about its powers. Nocturnagem deposits only appear in remote locations after the sun has set, and contact with the gem often results in memory loss and nightmares.

CRYOGEM

With a near identical composition to Aquagems, Cryogems have a more stable crystalline structure, allowing for the manipulation of ice. Due to freezing water temperatures, they are particularly difficult and dangerous to harvest. Since the Cryogem's discovery, it has been associated with Gemlandia's Royal Family and their now defunct empire.

CAPROGEM

The Caprogem contains stored energy of horned animals. Blends often result in physical changes such as horns and hooves, in addition to other benefits such as increased strength, stability, and power. Gemologists believe that Caprogems were formed from the horns of goats and rams after thousands of years of compression and crystallization.

ELECTROGEM

The Electrogem is a secondary elemental gem that contains static energy. It has a similar composition to the Pyrogem, however, resulting blends often focus on manipulating stored energy rather than expending it directly. Its relatively recent discovery prompted a period of rapid urban growth resulting in the state of Fashion City.

INTRODUCTION TO BLENDING

Some gifted individuals can combine the energies of multiple gems to become powerful transformations called blends – these individuals are known as Gem Blenders. Gem Blending is an integral part of the culture and economy of Gemlandia. Depending on their skill, Gem Blenders can combine up to five different gem types. 

Blending manifests itself in many facets of society, from art, to religion, to war. Some blends are a part of fables and legends, while others were discovered recently. Many aspects of blending still remain a mystery – gemologists and blendologists alike are constantly searching for answers.
