Gorafia
This planet very identical to Earth except for the shapes of its land masses. Humans have lived here alongside the Borineans for 600 years.The civilization of the planet is currently in a sort of modern medieval system. Technology is at the same level of Earth, but the government is a mix between a democratic and a feudal system.
The planet's ecosystem is about 50% Earth animals and 20% Earth plant life. Many animals retain at least some domestication. The planet's main source of transportation is based on domesticated animals, like Earth horses and Goravian gomajas.
Goravian Animals
Gomaja-This creature is mammalian but it is an amphibian, starting its life as a tadpole-like creature. It resembles a panther with a lizard-like tail and a sleek head with ears that are mostly hidden. It is used as transportation.
Cabokod-A seemingly harmless creature that actually can spew fire and energy from its mouth. It looks like a dog version of Jigglypuff pretty much.
Laswing-A bird that looks like a striped eagle with wings like a dragonfly. They are difficult to train, and are often used by Goravian Knights as companions.
Kermoy-A large mammal that is very similar to dragons. They have similar body structures and large three-ribbed wings that are attached at the base to the flank. The head looks similar to a Kangaroo's, but with nostrils like a horse, and a large patch of dark fur lies underneath the eye. The long tail has five spikes protruding from random spots on the first half of the tail. The last half of the tail is covered in porcupine-like quills instead of fur. Each foot has three toes with an non-retractable claw. Kermoys stand on all fours. At adulthood, they stand 7 to 9 feet tall, and are about 10 to 14 feet long from snout to tail. At birth, they are about the size of a full-grown cat. They grow into their adult size in a period of two years, though they grow to about half their full size before their fifth month after birth. Kermoys have a mysterious connection with pendants, as they can naturally use powers that are only associated with Pearl, Copper, Sapphire, and Emerald Pendants. A Pendantector with a Pearl Pendant may communicate with any Kermoy, as thought-speak is universal. Kermoy are rare creatures, only existing in Deri and Borine. Many Kermoy have been domesticated, however, to be used for combat and transportation. Kermoys are present in many Borinean myths and legends. One such legend states that a powerful Pendantector rode his Kermoy over the province of Borine and created the entirety of the Valley of Borine.
Kelik-A reptilian creature with no forelegs.
Cities and Towns
Deri-Capitol city of the planet. Location of the Goravian Council, which governs the entire planet. Located at the cross of the Equator and Prime Meridian.
Joriasin
Ark City
Borine
Niohasia
12 Provinces(Continents)
Joria-Known for the fertile land and dense forests that cover the land. Joriasin, Ealdor, and Niohasia are some of the towns here.
Deri-The central province of Gorafia, covered by the city of Deri.
Eden-The humans first settled this province when they came to Gorafia. Ark City is the capitol and there is a preservation site of the Ark-87.
Ineksplora-
Landmarks
Mount Cane-The highest point on Gorafia; located at the northern tip of Deri. The top half of the mountain is filled with advanced facilities that are thought to have been once used for Arcane experiments.
Ark-87 Preservation Site
Valley of Borine
Teńosecreta-A large cave covering much of Ineksplora that hasn't been explored by humans. It's name means "I hold secrets" and is named that because of the secrets that Borinean legends suggest.
Sentient Races
Humans
Borineans
It is highly theorized that Gorafia has or has had another sentient race other then the Borineans. Multiple places have buildings and machines that require technology far beyond the intelligence of the Borinean race. The strongest evidence is the immense facility built inside of Mount Cane. Evidence suggests that whatever race existed on Gorafia either died out or left the planet at least a century before the humans arrived. Looking at ancient Borinean etchings on the facility's walls, the race is believed to have been called the Wanhiasheem.

Terminology
Enerscoot-This transportation machine is much like a moped, but there are no wheels. It has four thrusters on the underside; one on the front, and three on the back. Only Pendantectors with Copper Pendants can use them. It floats in the air with help from the middle back thruster and from the use of telekinesis. Energybending is used to shoot energy through the circuit channels that run from the handles to each of the thrusters. The thrusters can be turned using telekinesis. Flexible metaglass covers the front of the scooter like a windshield that guards the entire rider from an air resistance. Metaglass also covers the back where luggage and a second rider can be carried safely.
Metaglass-A form of glass that is as strong and moldable as steel. It is the only kind of glass used for windshields. Most urban commercial establishments use metaglass for doors. It is also somewhat conducts electricity.
Heatbending-Ruby Pendants grant this power to control heat at will. This does not mean controlling fire at will. Of course, a heatbender can create fire and put it out, but they cannot spew it from their hands or directly control the size of a fire.
Waterbending-Sapphire Pendants grant this power to use telekinesis on liquids.
Lifebending-A specific branch of waterbending that allows the bender to directly affect the fluids inside a living organism. Lifebenders often influence the fluids inside their own body to grant themselves extra strength. Many doctors also practice lifebending to help patients.
Energybending-Copper Pendants grant this power to create and freely control matergy and to use telekinesis.
MatergyLiterally energy in the form of matter. This material is created by ignoring multiple laws of both Space and Time. Whenever it is created, it adds mass to the universe. It can be temporary or permanent, depending on what is used to create it. It is not affected by time; it does not decay, grow, or shrink over time. It is most often simply referred to as "energy."
Thunderbending-Diamond Pendants grant this power over electric energy(not to be confused with Matergy).
Mindbending-Pearl Pendants grant this power over the mind.
Metalbending-Coal Pendants grant this power to shape metal at will.
Earthbending-Emerald Pendants grant this power to move and shape dirt and rock.
Spacebending-Quartz Pendants grant this power over space itself.
WoodbendingJade Pendants grant this power to control plantlife at will.
Timebending-Ice Pendants grant this power over time itself.
Onyxite-A material created by dipping leather in a solution created with a high concentration of onyx. The leather strengthens after drying and gains a black hue.
Ivoryite-A material created by dipping leather in a solution created with a high concentration of ivory. The leather strengthens after drying and gains a white hue.
Askan-The currency of Gorafia. One askan is made from both gold and bronze, and is equal to about $0.75.
