Felarya

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Felarya is an independently published OEL Manga distributed via Lulu. It takes place in the eponymous world of Felarya: a dangerous world where humans are hardly at the top, frequently hunted by predatory fauna and flora, as well as much larger sentient humanoid species. In the manga, the storyline prominently features a giant Naga, Crisis, and her acquaintances.

In addition to being an OEL Manga, Felarya is an active world-building community where fan-created stories, not entirely unlike Fan Fiction, are created and ideas to expand and elaborate upon the structure of the world are encouraged. The world is owned exclusively by the creator, Karbo, and those who write or draw Felaryan related things must follow his specifications and rules on his forum.

Note: The comic features heavy vorarephilia themes, and those not into it might be somewhat put off. Much of the content is Not Safe for Work, as many images contain nudity.


Tropes used in Felarya include:

HEY ASSHOLES!!

  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Telekine and Voidfingers quickly develop these roles as red and blue, respectively.
  • Red Shirt: Any adventurer not given a name is almost guaranteed to die at some point.
  • Scenery Porn: To the point where the characters often play second fiddle to their own backgrounds.
  • Schizo-Tech: Felarya's few civilized areas, especially the city of Negav, are generally a mishmash of different magics and technologies from different worlds.
  • Series Mascot: Crisis is considered the mascot of the universe.
  • Sizeshifter: Fairies can change their size at will, both ways.
  • Smart People Play Chess: The giant succubus Menyssan may agree to relinquish your soul instead of snacking on it, merely by defeating her at a bout of chess. It's not surprising she'd agree to a contest that plays to her strengths as a master strategist- she is a demon after all.
  • Snake People: The Naga race, obviously.
  • Snakes Are Sexy: so long as the "snake" is half an attractive woman from the crotch upwards.
  • Spider People: The dridders.
  • Stalker with a Crush: The giant naga Katrika can be frequently seen stalking Anna.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Nicely subverted in the case of Isham, who was was held captive for a time by the giantess Milly. They did eventually become close friends, but only after Isham was released and settled in Safe Harbor, and after much conflict during his captivity.
  • Swallowed Whole
  • Sweat Drop
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Subeta the fairy's glove, capable of disabling, teleporting or summoning artifacts, wall busting, magic hax and comic relief.
  • The Tease: Probably the most prominent sex-related trait regarding Vivian. Which, given her reputation is saying something.
    • At one point in the Manga, it's implied that she teases Crisis into doing something sexual with her. This wouldn't be so bad except Crisis is never shown in any other sexual situation in any other canon work. And Crisis views Vivian as a surrogate big sister.
  • To Serve Man: Humans are favored over most other available food by sentient predators.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Nikita serves as this for the Spetz. She's not evil per se, but she still gulps down the occasional human, despite the Sptez being composed of "prey species".
  • Trapped in Another World: Many stories have this as their basic premise. Those unlucky enough to become trapped in Felarya will be forced to adapt quickly to the dangerous environment, lest they be eaten.
  • Turtle Island: Torkudas Island
  • Undefeatable Little Village: Arguably, Safe Harbor. It's protected by Jade, a no-nonsense giantess, and most predators won't go near it because she'll kick the everloving snot out of them.
  • Underwater City: Rhyzelm'oire.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: When a great deal of non-human sentient races are notoriously known as man-eaters, there is no doubt a strong bias against such predators on their behalf.
  • When Trees Attack: Carnivorous plants being abundant, don't be surprised when you're dragged underneath what looked like a harmless tree by its roots.. Or discovering too late a giant dryad that's been looming over you.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Ironically, this applies to the half-snake naga Crisis. She's completely phobic of tonorions - magic-shrugging, armored, spiked, carnivorous giant insects - having experienced a nearly fatal encounter with one in the past. Despite being a feared predator and being quite able to take care of herself, she totally loses her wits about them - even comparably tiny ones frighten her.
  • Word of God: The creator, Karbo, is quite involved in the community and has a tendency to discuss ideas presented in the community and accept/reject Fanon.
  • World Tree: The Giant Tree is heavily implied to be one of these. There's even an entire religion that worships it.
  • World of Badass: If you don't get dangerous very fast in Felarya, you're lunch.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: A few predators have this sentiment, most notably Fiona and Katrika.
