About JewelmancyJewelmancy is the most common way of wielding magic in Eriaren. The jewels that are plentiful across the world hold a bewildering array of powers, leading to an infinite number of spells. But not all jewels hold magic power--those that do glow, and the strength of the glow determines how powerful the jewel is.About Jewelmancy by LightningTopaz
The easiest way to draw out a jewel's power is to tell it what to do. How this is done depends on the individual mage--some speak the name of the spell directly, and some use an incantation (with several different styles of incantations). It is also possible to combine spellsong and jewelmancy (This is commonly seen in folktales, but Brock is one such minstrel that can do this for real, although he is not proficient in jewelmancy yet)
However, the more complex your spell, the more jewels it uses up, and once you run out, you have to wait for jewels to replenish before casting again.
Jewelmancers are often identified by the jewel type they primarily use--Misty is a sapphire jewelm
The Pantheon of EriarenRenai--The chief goddess and the goddess of light. Very wise and clever, she won't reveal her wisdom to just anyone--the problem of evil is explained as the dark lord wishing to know her deepest secrets, and trying to get her attention.The Pantheon of Eriaren by LightningTopaz
She is also known to give heroes items to help on their quest.
Naiaveth--The goddess of dreams and wishes, and the daughter of Renai. Jirachi serves as her envoy. She watches over mortals as they sleep, and protects them from nightmares.
Sanen--the god of earth, he was the one that granted the art of jewelmancy (a type of magic involving drawing power out of gemstones) to the world. Those that have great courage and endurance are said to "have a heart like Sanen"
Aera--the goddess of wind, she has fairy-like wings that allow he to fly through the world and observe her creation. This has often led her to be confused for a fairy, much to her chagrin. She is known to be a trickster, although she doesn't usually mean any harm by her tricks--tales of her adv

Matt's GiftsThe morning sun was high overhead by the time Ash and Misty arrived in town. Ash was still in high spirits as he and his companion weaved through the crowd, happily returning salutes from the townsfolk and the children that were awed by his red and silver armor with gold trim. But to the blue-clad mage, she was wishing she could have a place to rest, set her bow on the ground, and relax from the long walk.Matt's Gifts by LightningTopaz
Just then, the notes of a flute playing a dance tune got her attention. "A minstrel's here!"
"Right behind you!" Ash followed Misty through the crowds until they arrived in the square, where a crowd was watching a brown haired boy with tan skin play a small silver flute. He didn't look too much different from most minstrels Ash had met--a brightly colored tunic, a long tan vest, and dark leggings. Judging how his fingers are flying across the tiny instrument's fingerholes, he has to have trained for years at his art. he thought.
Misty's eyes grew as large as plates when she he
