Started in the year 1200 AD, The GHM began when one of a small group of Pacicore Alchemists (a title for people given the Minianate ability to manipulate matter) met a duo of traveling magicians while hiking through the Hyperborean forests. Needless to say, they became very friendly with one another, and after 2 years of partnership, they decided to settle down & get married... all 3 of them. It was a bit rocky at first, but all three were of the opinion that if a partnership among two had benefits, why not one with a third? Nothing in Tarkaria's laws prevents this, & indeed at first it was almost purely financial that there was a marriage at all. But as time went on, the bond between the three began to grow. Being Pacicores, they liked to travel. In fact, they live in tents, & on the backs of Elephants more than anything else. And the life of a traveler spreading magic entertainment adored by many was tempting to other members of the Pacicore group given this ability. & a few other members joined in as well. In short, a very big Circus/ Traveling Bard group.
You ready for a curve-ball? This'll come completely out of left field for some. But I like diversity in Tarkaria, so I give those of you who wish to make your own Hollow Earth characters a possible group you may want to join. & I'm getting this out of the way, the image does not lie. They practice Polygamy... Yeah... Yeah. I myself don't think I could handle more than one woman in my life, but I know there are people out there who can. But I should also point out that I'm not one of those people who goes around trying to force diversity in a medium, even though no one wants it. I don't create female characters or characters referencing minorities because I feel I have to, I do it because I Want to. There is a difference. I know hardly anyone, even minorities care about representation in their favorite media revolving around fantasy. So I try not to force it on anyone. That being said, I think that there are benefits to having a little diversity in my circle, but only if it benefits the story, or its characters. In Tarkaria, it does. It's a place to celebrate, & even participate in the weirdest & craziest parts of our world, play with fringe science, create new creatures, & explore ideas in human behavior. So, have fun in this little world I'm building, & maybe you can help me build it. Let's have some fun, eh?
So, if you create a character in Tarkaria, or even this group, be sure to send me a link to it in a note.
