2. Laws of this world

In this world, the society is divided between those with wizarding powers and those without. But there are many different races that span both societies (these races I develop as I continue each story so I only know a few races at the moment).

The physics laws of this world correspond with our world's; eg: you can't run unless you have legs, you can't fly unless you have wings and these wings have to be big enough to lift you off. 

But then there are the specifics. It rains every afternoon at 3 pm to 6 pm in the first 3 months of the year, every third afternoon from 6 pm to 9 pm in the next 3 months, every sixth night from 9 pm to midnight in the next 3 months, and it doesn't rain at all for the last 3 months of the year. This changes depending on what part of the world you live it. If it is cold, it snows at this rate, having melted completely in the last 3 months. If it is hot this pattern only occurs in the first half of the year with it raining every third and the sixth afternoon/night and not raining for the rest of the year. If you haven't guessed it, everything is in 3 in this world, when anything goes beyond 3 it is considered abnormal and defected. All flowers have a number of petals that is a multiple of 3, same for branches and even waterfall have multiples of 3 in rock ledges. Natural disasters come in sets of multiples of 3, whether it be earthquakes and aftershocks or cyclones and stormy weather. In a sense it helps because let's say there were an earthquake and one aftershock, residents know that at least one more aftershock is to come and will, therefore be prepared. 

Astronomically there is one sun and two moons, Oberon and Tatiana. Oberon rises in the north and sets in the south, while Tatiana never falls below the horizon but travels around the circumference of the world. The world does spin on an axis and orbit the sun keeping gravity at the centre. If you don't know, "Oberon (also spelt Auberon) is a king of the fairies in medieval and Renaissance literature. He is best known as a character in William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which he is Consort toTitania, Queen of the Fairies." (source: Wiki) Every twelve years, on the twelfth month, and twelfth day these two moons will overlap each other causing an eclipse of the sun, this is called The Romance. Anyone born in the year of The Romance considered lucky with love, but if you are born on the day of The Romance, superstition has it you are doomed to find love. Though it is just superstition, there have been hundreds of people to prove these wrong.

Also, when you experience The Romance for the second time you are considered an adult. This means you could be as young as 12 years old, if you were born on the day of The Romance, to 23 years old, a day before you turn 24 as you were born the day after the day of The Romance. These two moons dictate the lives of all people/animals/plants in this world. 

And these are the basic laws of this world.
