== Aderian Society before the Soulfire Crisis ==
<br /> Aderian society consisted of four domains, each managed by a different guild. These guilds acted as administrators and law enforcement over their juristicted domains. The
five guilds had internal hierarchies, each with a different guildmaster at the top. Guildmasters were appointed by the Aderian people in each domain. <br //>
For each region, there existed 5 guilds total: One for each force. Each guild is defined by crafting and arts with that force as the/a primary source of either energy or materials. Life crafting encompasses all healing, agricultural practices and woodwork/leatherwork/other raw materials originating from living creatures. Fire crafting encompasses not only flame itself, but other (non-light based) heat sources such as lava. Fluid crafting has broad applications and is often hybridized; encompasses alchemy, plumbing/bathing, and hydraulic/wind energy. Light crafting encompasses not only contained light sources (like lanterns), but also in harnessing energy from the Sun, or manipulating other forms of bioluminesence/light sources that are special to Anora (not found in our world). Earth/Stone crafting mainly involves raw materials for construction, tools, or artifacts. There are also hybrid crafts; for example, blacksmithing involves both Earth/Stone crafting (raw materials), and Fire crafting (transformative energy source).
