Realm of magical intensity and wild power. Though the portion that has been explored and civilized is beautiful to behold, and home of the esteemed high elves, the land around is much less than habitable. These regions are filled with monsters and creatures, including the rage-maddened bloodwolf.

A beautiful world filled with wild, lush forests, towering mountains, and incredible beauty. The capitol country of Vystriana is led by the dragon monarchy, the royal bloodline of the Skystrikers. Includes the countries of Vystriana, Alubria, Stroen'na, Yorije, Khankirae and the Myrlands. Felnova is often considered a melting-pot of all the Realms' species; nearly every creature can be found within its borders.

A dark world often called the Realm of Demons. Sister-Realm to Felnova; its continents and landmarks are nearly identical. It is a harsh, sunless world filled with scarlet rivers, black earth and white trees. Demons, hellwolves and many others reside within four Kingdoms here: War, Death, Famine and Pestilence.

A massive, sprawling land filled with swamplands and thick forests. Populated by the race of reptilian lyzards, who revere dragons, as well as the rare and elusive unicorn. Called the Undying Realm for the fact that plantlife doesn't seem to die.

Original home of dragonkind; one of the first Realms created after the great catastrophe that destroyed the One's single creation. Sister-Realm to Xaeri. Similar to Felnova in many ways, save one; dragonkind is rare, and hidden away in the northern mountains, hunted and despised by their former humanoid subjects.

plot-based // Xaeri

3 topics // 19 replies
The wild Realm; the untamed wilderness of Xaeri is a refuge for many trying to escape the wars of Felnova and other worlds. Filled with many unexplored leagues, its landscape was formed by the destroyed soul-essences of Spirit-Weapons long past. Xaeri is primarily populated by the animalistic xeriin, residing in hidden-away villages and hamlets scattered throughout.

plot-based // Light and Dark

1 topics // 0 replies
Both Light and Dark Realms are the initial creations of the gods; one, home to the lightbeasts of old, is a world infused with otherworldly light - every flower glistens, every rock blazes, every animal glows. The other, home to the shadowbeasts of yore, is a shadowy place filled with fear and blackness and death. Both, however, are essential to the balance of the Void, and play a key part in the creation of a new Realm.

REALM INFORMATION: Light Realm; Dark Realm.
