    Monster Girl Encyclopedia world

    This article describes the geography and history of the MGE world. For the site frontpage, see Monster Girl Encyclopedia. For the original book, see Monster Girl Encyclopedia I.
    Wherever you are in the world, this tends to happen a lot.

    The world of the Monster Girl Encyclopedia is one of varied locations and a storied history. Gods and monsters mingle with ordinary humans, elves and dwarves in a land of swords, sorcery, and, most of all, sex. Although the monsters are categorized extensively, much of the broader detail of the world is less clear.

    For the vast majority of its history, the world was quite different from this; but succubus ascendancy changed it all about a thousand years ago. Now, medieval peasants, knights, wizards and even deities must continue to adapt in a new world order where love and desire reigns supreme,.

    Geography[edit]

    The slimegirl is one of the most ubiquitous monster girls, and varieties can be found all over the world

    Physical geography[edit]

    Refer to: Zipangu, Dragonia, Mist Continent, and Monsters of the Sea

    As the world is a construction of the gods rather than nature, even its shape isn't known for certain. It could be a flat earth; it could be a geocentric universe; all we know for sure is that it is not a "planet" as we would understand it. In any case, many fantastic and varied lands are described in the world by the Wandering Scholar and especially Saphirette Spherica, although details on where they all are in relation to each other is very sparse. The Scholar started his journey in Order lands, which occupy a continental landmass and contain the majority of the world's human population. The Order is a religion and a culture rather than a single nation; former territories since lost to the monsters include Lescatie and possibly Polove [1], once a sickly, resource-free land of no strategic geographical value whatsoever. Also outside the Order's control are the increasingly common monster-friendly human nations, plus the forest territories of the elves and the underground nations of the dwarves (one of which is named as East Giyamante, known for its intricate glassware [2]).

    Far to the east of this continent lies a comparatively tiny archipelago country called Zipangu, which means "Kingdom of Fire" in the native language [3]. It is a land of kimonos, shrine maidens, ninjas, and sake. Some of this island nation constitutes bright green Mamono Realm, where monsters and uncorrupted humans live close by; if not quite in harmony, then at least not with the one-sided antagonism that characterizes relationships on various Order lands. The Wandering Scholar reports that a nation from his continent has attempted to invade Zipangu at least once before, but the effort was defeated by a combination of human-monster military co-operation, and kunoichi espionage ravishing the enemy leadership into submission [4].

    Described as lying "to the north of Zipangu" [5], the Mist Continent is a candidate for that invader nation. Populated by panda-girls and kung-fu mice, it's an exotic place that the Wandering Scholar is eager to visit. Elsewhere, the Desert region is a hot waste of sand and pyramids, the graveyard of a once-great civilization - although new rulers and old ones may be trying to rebuild lost glories. Also described in some detail is not another land but the sea itself; now offering more than a cold, wet death after Poseidon defected to the side of the Mamono Lord. Sea Bishops travel the waves granting men the power to breathe underwater, and once down in the ethereal glow of the mid-layer, you can sex up an eager mermaid or sea slime. Just don't swim too deep; there are ancient secrets lurking in the abyssal night.

    Magical geography[edit]

    Refer to: Mamono Realm Handbook

    A monster's mamono mana doesn't just twist mortal creatures; it corrupts the land itself. The soil turns jet-black; the air becomes heavy and stagnant; and a dark, oppressive gloom hangs over everything. Day and night switch place as heavy clouds block out the sun, yet the light of the moon is enhanced to a surreal, crimson glow. Devilish flora supplants the greenery that humans are used to: crooked black trees with blue leaves, hypnotic glowing flowers, herbs that make you go mute, and immediately deadly fungi. Ominous and evil-looking to humans, it's the familiar sight of home to monsters: a Dark Mamono Realm.

    With plant names like "undead grey lamentation mushroom" it's no wonder humans tend to think Mamono Realms are evil

    The darkest of all Mamono Realms is Royal Makai, an immense land that is the main stronghold of the monsters. The Mamono Lord's castle lies at the center of Succubus Castle Town, the largest city in the world [6]. Here, the spirit corruption is so intense that not even veteran heroes can stand it; conversely, for monsters, it's party central, and the metropolis is a bustling entrepôt of sex tourism and erotic commerce. At the other end of the scale, bright green mamono realms are barely distinguishable from human realms. With blue sky, green grass, and water that doesn't turn into pink goo, one could mistake it for Order territory if not for all the weresheep and holstaurs grazing the fields.

    While Mamono Realms are lands which have been magically transmogrified, other lands are magically created. Often having only ephemeral contact with the material realm, these alternate dimensions are usually the private fiefs of god-like beings. Heaven is for the celestial angels and Pandemonium is for the Fallen ones, while Wonderland and the Fairy Kingdom occupy the demented, off-kilter middle ground. The Cat Kingdom is a strange realm of maze-like alleyways and Western architecture ruled over by Bastet.

    History[edit]

    Refer to: The Utopia that the Mamono Lord Dreams of

    The past[edit]

    The world followed an eternal cycle of rise and fall, man against monster, for countless aeons... until a millennia ago. Legendary events from former ages include the war against the monsters of chaos and the destruction of the Pharaohs' original desert kingdoms. The former Mamono Lord presided over the usual bloodthirsty horde of murderous terrors; and was presumably slain in the usual manner. But afterwards, something new happened. A succubus - a lewd, lustful monster that gains power through sex with human men - married a hero, and came up with a plan to break the circle of history. Somehow securing the co-operation of many other monsters [7], the succubus became the next Mamono Lord. Exploiting the magical connection between the Mamono Lord and all the other monsters, she then poured her own succubus mamono mana into all the devilish creatures under her dominion. The end result was the monsters we know today: their bodies transformed to be as sultry as the succubi, and their taste for human blood changed to an altogether different bodily fluid.

    Even before the reign of the current mamono lord, there were already known cases of monsters attempting to live with humans. Succubi formed harems of male sex slaves to avoid killing them by completely draining their essence[8], all-female races such as Harpy[9] and Lamia[10] sometimes fell in love and kept men as husbands, and the Dragon Empire Dragonia had a nationwide policy to coexist with humans.

    However, this wasn't all of what the Mamono Lord had intended. The metaphysical rules of the world were stronger than she expected, and the new "monster girls" could only bear daughters. This means the monsters have to keep attacking humanity in order to find breeding partners (and to satisfy their new, succubus-inspired lusts). But by this point, the Mamono Lord had raised the ire of the (newly-invested) Chief God, who descended personally to do battle. Inexperienced and hasty, the Chief God was driven back by the combined power of the Mamono Lord and her husband. Retreating to Heaven, she fell back on the tactic of ages past: empowering heroes from her human followers to try and destroy the foe.

    The present and the future[edit]

    This is the contemporary state of the world: the Chief God and her Order pitted in war against the Mamono Lord and her monsters. Although the monsters have superhuman strength, supernatural sex appeal, and the inexorable creep of essence corruption on their side, most of them have little interest in actively conquering or expanding their territory, preferring to simply live peaceful, pleasured-filled days with their mates. Also, world conquest alone won't achieve the Mamono Lord's objectives - unless she can muster enough magical power to overwrite the metaphysical rules of the world and enable monster girls to bear incubus sons, eventually there will be no males left and both humans and monster girls will go extinct. For this reason, the Mamono Lord and her husband spend the vast majority of their time locked away having sex, trying to gain enough power to perform this great sorcery [11].

    Several gods, such as Poseidon, Hel, and Bastet, have sided with the Mamono Lord, while others like Eros and Ares are officially neutral, with both humans and monster worshippers, though in practice their sympathies are clearly with the side of the monsters and monster-friendly humans. Ironically, despite the Chief God's antagonistic stance against monsters, there are monsters worshiping her and have even somehow received her blessing. The Order of the chief god is quietly ignoring this.[12]

    Some of the more recent events including Druella the lilim has monsterized the Order nation of Lescatie, turning it into a Mamono Realm, while the Elementalist Association has done the same to Polove. And in the midst of all this, the Wandering Scholar flees execution for blasphemy to far-off lands, documenting all the sexy demons he comes across.

    Metaphysics[edit]

    The nature of the world[edit]

    Refer to: The Order of God and the Structure of the World

    In the beginning, there were only the Gods. The original Chief God subdued the other deities, and created the material world and the humans within it. The Order claims that the Mamono Lord and the monsters later "emerged from the darkness" to despoil creation; but after interviewing the present Mamono Lord, Wandering Scholar reports that the truth about monsters is that they have always been a part of the world. Monsters were originally bloodthirsty killers in the usual definition of "monster"; but despite (or perhaps because of) that, they formed the other side of a yin-yang balance with humanity. When "humans increase too much in number", a Mamono Lord rises to power and the monsters lay waste to mankind; and when the monsters' numbers are too high, heroes are born to slay the Mamono Lord and plunge the monsters into internecine conflict. The struggle between man and monster is not simply a case of food chains, historical enmity, or territorial ambition; it is a law of nature, fixed by the Gods into the very fundament of creation.

    Documentation[edit]

    Most of the information on the world comes from the Wandering Scholar. The in-universe author of Monster Girl Encyclopedia I, Monster Girl Encyclopedia World Guide I: Fallen Maidens, and other books, he is a travelling encyclopaedist out to document the varieties of supposedly evil, all-female "mamono", or monsters, that threaten and prey on the other races of the world - especially the men. The Wandering Scholar is neither omniscient nor (necessarily) impartial, and as a character in his own frame story, he often admits that there is information he doesn't know [13] or must leave to his readers to decide [14].

    Wandering Scholar is occasionally helped (or hindered) in his documentarian efforts by co-authors of dubious motivation [15], including Druella and Saphirette Spherica. His "travelling companion", a leanan sidhe, also provides assistance to the chirographic process [16][17][18].

    Monster Girl Encyclopedia World Guide III: Sabbath Grimoire breaks the mold by having the baphomet Runya Runya as the main author, with other co-authors such as the witch Vietta covering specific topics and providing comments.

    An unnamed student of the Wandering Scholar authors two books; Monster Girl Encyclopedia World Guide - Side I: Dragonia and Monster Girl Encyclopedia World Guide - Side II. The first book also has tourism information narrated by several guides across various subjects.

    Monster Girl Encyclopedia World Guide - Side 1.5: Wilmarina's Honeymoon is an account of Wilmarina Noscrim's honeymoon with her husband in Dragonia.

    Monster Girl Encyclopedia World Guide - Side III is a collection of tourism information narrated by several unnamed guides.

    17. Wandering Scholar credits his Leanan Sidhe simply with "holding off monsters" who try to capture him. However, sidhes' main ability is to cause the writing/painting/drawing abilities of their companions to skyrocket, so she may be responsible for the Wandering Scholar's successful encyclopaedist career in more capacities than just "bodyguard".
    18. The leanan sidhe profile mentions that a subtle charm magic is always being released from their body, so the men they target always feel extremely attracted to them. It is extremely difficult to elude their seduction. The exact nature of her "companionship" with Wandering Scholar is left to the reader's imagination!
