Classika is set in a medieval, swords and sorcery time frame. While magic is known in the world, it is not a common ability. Those blessed with the capability to perform magic are usually offspring of previous magic users. There are two forms of magic; Sacred and Elemental. Sacred magic has the ability to heal allies as well as inflict punishment on enemies. Elemental magic is a bit more potent in the offensive area than Sacred is, but it also has the ability to effect weapons, armor, minds, and bodies to directly improve or impair abilities. There are 3 major kingdoms in the world of Classika, though Leah and Ethan's story take place in the Kingdom of Atalaria.
The game begins inside of Wollen, Leah and Ethan's home town, where they are requested to go into the field to retrieve some ingredients for the local alchemist.

Leah is an only child, born to Catherine and George Vaughn. She has lived all of her life to this point in the small village of Wollen. She has a short fuse and tends to speak before thinking. While this can bother some of the other villagers, Ethan and her family recognizes that she is just a very honest girl. Well, honest and loud.

Ethan was raised by friends of his late parents, Miriam and Tony, who have their own, older, son, Zachary. Ethan's parents were killed when he was five. He hates being indebted to anyone. When he turned fifteen the elders decided he should move into his parents' old house and start making a living for himself, as he was nearing adulthood. He has been living there for 2 months, slowly learning of the hardships associated with home ownership.
Name - Vance Age - 27 Class - Soldier Hair - Red Eyes - Blue Height - 5' 11" Weight - 172 lbs Hometown - Unknown Notable Features - Bright Red Hair, Military uniform Notable Possessions - None Likes - Order Dislikes - Cruelty Favorite Saying - None
Vance is a lower ranked soldier in the Kings army. Even though he has been in service to his Majesty for several years now he has not advanced due to his tendency to speak out when he disagrees with something. He is well educated and tries to think of others before himself. He joins Leah and Ethan to find out whether or not the rumors about his captain's dubious actions are true.

Pockets has been a thief his whole life, raised by bandits to pay off his mother's debt. He runs into the story's main party in the port city of Phendra, where Leah's brashness and loud mouth get them involved in the shady side of the city Pockets is familiar with. At the end, he and his pet ferret, Dook, join the party - whether or not they want them to.
In the world of Classika, there are three kingdoms that have maintained peaceful relations with one another for countless years. The peace was brought about from the desire to pursue a study into a new form of travel. Researchers and mages worked together in order to develop what is now known as a keystone. The keystone is about the size of a small rock or pebble and when used with the proper command words, will transport the holder and whomever is touching or being touched by the holder to the location where the keystone originated.
The keystones require several years to produce for a single mage, so larger cities with the resources can mass produce them, while smaller villages and hamlets usually only have a few (if any) at their disposal. In addition to knowing the command words to use the keystone, the keystone was be made from a gem that can be naturally found in the area. For instance, you cannot bring in a ruby and request it be made into a keystone for some city. You would need to first go to that city and find a gemstone of a high enough quality that was found in that area, and then find a mage who would undergo the process of imbueing the gemstone with its magical components.
Because of the steps needed to be taken to create one of these, explorers have set out to find exotic and unique locations with the hopes of finding quality gem stones to bring back and have imbued. There are many keystones that have been made for one exotic location or another, but one keystone has a legend greater than the rest. A rare black gem with red streaks throughout it was found near a horribly maimed mage. The last words of the mage was the name of the location he had obtained it, then he passed away. It was said that the recipient of those last words went on to turn that gem into a keystone, and that it would lead to a very dangerous place where humans would be granted unparalleled power.
It was the law of all of Classika that this keystone should not be used for personal gain, but would remain unused until a time came that they should need it.
Over time, the legend had grown but the details were lost to the ages. Only a select few knew about the keystone and even fewer among them knew of the correct command words. Peace continued to reign across the world for another 200 years.
However, the keystone was stolen during a betrayal of the kings army, where a large portion of the guards who were responsible for guarding it betrayed the king and made away with the item. This happened 20 years ago, and while the people are oblivious to the importance of the matter, the king has desperately been trying to find it.
The story begins in Wollen, a relative new village, where Leah and Ethan will be waking up to help out their village. Since the hunters and gatherers are too busy, the village elder Saul has bade them to venture into the forest to collect some materials for the local chemist.
