The Lost Plane
is a world where the lines of cultural identity are more broadly implied than most. The planet’s single, massive continent is currently occupied by four major races (elves, goblins, merfolk, and humans), though a scattered collection of smaller groups have managed to keep their independence.
- Dominating the center of the land mass are the Great Plains. Once a region plagued by endless war, the divided elven tribes are now united under the rule of the Ashir and their king, Ryziel…who commands his people from the throne atop The Golden City.
- Far to the north, the frozen tundra is presided over by the mage-monks of the crystal city, Galric. For the most part, these powerful (yet diminutive) goblins are content to keep to themselves, studying their arcane lore and seeking answers to the most puzzling questions. Their lack of natural resources and harsh living conditions sees to it that they are kept relatively undisturbed.
- On the southern tip of the continent, the Barcass Lowlands are prowled by the vicious merfolk cabals. An interconnected series of rivers, lakes, inlets, and underground waterways allows them to travel these parts unimpeded. Though they have no official “capital”, the Bay of Endak is surely the center of their shadow society.
- To the west of the plains, a great river know only as “The Divide” provides a barrier to the forests of Jundal. These savage wild lands are inhabited by all manner of creatures, but the most well known are the druidic human tribes dwelling within. They seek an ever-growing “oneness” with the natural world and are often content to ignore the events taking place beyond their borders.
- To the east, the impressive Grubash Mountain Range dominates the horizon. The sharp and rocky crags present an almost impassable landscape stretching near completely from coast to coast. As if that wasn’t enough, the peaks are said to play host to dark specters, fiendish spirits, and even the walking dead…bolder stories claim spectral dragons circle the mountain tops and demonic presences inhabit the countless caves. Few individuals attempt to cross over into what is only whispered among inhabitants of Fulsia as “The Forgotten Lands”, and even fewer return to speak of what they’ve seen.
