Continents:
● Jiain: This world’s equivalent to Asia. Trades infrequently with Pleissia, which is shares a border with. A solid land mass smaller than Pleissia, covered in jungles, rolling hills and mountains.
● Pleissia: This world’s equivalent to Europe. Trades infrequently with Jiain and Lokep. A large, solid land mass with plains and mountains.
● Hidania: This world’s equivalent to the Americas. Unknown to the others. The largest land mass, comprising largely of desert, but also with forests and mountains.
● Lokep: This world’s equivalent to Africa. Trades infrequently with Pleissia. The smallest land mass. Low-lying, with many rivers and flood plains, though the weather is sweltering for most of the year.

Races:
Humans:
● Pleissians are fair skinned with hair of varying colors. The most adapted to warfare.
● Jiainans are brown-skinned with black hair. The most technologically advanced (Ancient Greece-tier)
● Hidanians are red-skinned with black or brown hair. Uncivilized hunter-gatherers, but peaceful and very spiritual.
● Lokians are dark-skinned with no hair. The most adapted to fishing and travel.
Dragons:
● Mountain dragons: Reclusive and the largest species native to Pleissia and Hidania. They remain in mountains and eat mammals such as goats, though human settlements have been known to be attacked and eaten by them.
● Red dragons: Social pack-hunters native to Lokep, a smaller species, standing slightly taller than humans. Prefer hot climates. Can be tamed if captured. They consist mainly on mammals and birds around the size of beavers.
● River dragons: Solitary stealth hunters native to Jiain and Lokep. They drift along warm river beds, blending in with the bottom, and attack prey that swim above them.
● Rock dragons: Voracious predators native to Pleissia and Lokep. They live in any climate, though they do not like water. Despite their name, they rarely live in rocky places such as mountains. Named for their hard, rock-like scale plating that makes them hard to kill. Their weakest spots are their joints, eyes and a soft spot beneath their jaws. Henna’s village was attacked by one of these.
● Snake dragons: Solitary scavengers native to Jiain. Long and snake-like and lacking true hind legs and wings. They slither through Jiainian forests and eat dead animals on the ground, though they will also eat sleeping animals, including humans.
● White dragons: A rare breed of Rock Dragons. Slightly larger than their cousins. They are coveted for their rarity and difficulty to kill. Killing one is considered a great feat and those who manage earn the honorary title of “Dragon Slayer” from the king himself.

Religion:
● The gods are all perfect beings incapable of doing evil. Each one presides over an aspect of the world or of human life.
● Cienne: Goddess of love. She is depicted as a woman of gold with pearl swan wings. Her followers are charged with expressing love first and foremost and viewing it as the most important aspect of life. A follower of Cienne must follow their heart before all else. Cienne promises an eternity with the person you love most in a utopian afterlife containing all of her followers. It is said that a true love triangle is impossible if all three are followers of Cienne. Monks of Cienne play music to gain favor with her, as she is the God that loves music the most. Her afterlife is an idyllic land in endless sky called The Realm, in which her followers become angel-like beings.
● Hiun: God of the seasons. He is depicted as a stag with antlers of gold, as big as trees. His followers are primarily farmers who pray to him for favorable weather. Monks of Hiun are tasked with animal and plant sacrifices matching the seasons. The offerings are arranged artistically, as Hiun most appreciates visual art. Hiun’s afterlife is much like the regular world, but without danger, called Peace.
● Dolfar: God of the hunt. He is depicted as a man made of stone, covered in the fur of silver wolves. His followers pray to him for fruitful hunts, and value the thrill of the hunt more than any other form of entertainment, often hunting merely for sport. His afterlife is a wild land with various terrains and climates for hunting of any sort, called The Hunting Grounds. The devout hunters (as there are no monks of Dolfar) offer a portion of their catch every season, with their finest spices, as Dolfar most appreciates culinary art.
● Fuloa: Goddess of water. She is depicted as a long fish with beautiful flowing fins of every color. Her followers pray for good fishing or calm seas, and are primarily fishermen or sailors. In her afterlife, one immense coral Reef, her followers are transformed into mer people. Monks of Fuloa spend much time bathing, whether in the ocean, lakes, or indoor pools. Once a year, a female monk may volunteer to leave her life in the world by immersing herself in an offering bath, where she is spirited away to live in the Reef.
● Shenas: God of Justice. He is depicted as a warrior judge, bearing armored robes of white, red and gold. His followers pursue truth and justice as paladins or inquisitors. Corruption is considered the worst sin a follower of Shenas can commit. Every month, at Shenas’ temple in each continent, people may come to the god to ask for his own judgment over their disagreements. His afterlife consists of an immeasurable castle of spacious halls upon a cliff overlooking an ocean (believed to be connected to The Reef), in which his followers are all equal in each other’s eyes, named The Court.
● Hrithkas: God of Knowledge and Stories. Depicted as an immense owl with one half gray and the other brown, with mismatched eyes, whose wings flow with scrolls. His followers pursue knowledge and understanding as scribes and alchemists, or write stories as bards or playwrights. People pray to him in hope for luck with anything concerning the written word. He is said to possess dual personalities, one in which he studiously and bleakly pursues knowledge, and the other in which he writes lively stories. Every ten or so years, his followers bring to his holy place two books: an almanac containing all the discoveries made by science since the last time, and an anthology containing the greatest plays and stories created since the last time. His afterlife is split between a measureless library in which his followers pursue knowledge, and a stage on which followers perform endless plays to entertain one another, and write new stories to create new knowledge. It is called The Archive.
● Following no god in particular earns you an afterlife that varies depending on your lifestyle:
○ Those who love to fish but do not follow a god go to the Reef, transformed into their favorite sea creature.
○ Hunters who do not follow a god are sent to Dolfar’s hunting grounds as a wolf, eagle or falcon.
○ Those who love nature are sent to Hiun’s Peace, where they become an herbivorous animal.
○ Those who love their spouses and family most are sent to The Realm as their favorite bird, but with feathers of only white and gold.
○ Those who value justice go to The Court, where they become lions or rams/sheep, depending on their personalities.
○ Those who value knowledge go to The Archive where they become either a Great Horned Owl or a songbird depending on their personalities.
○ A person who shows no love of people, justice, knowledge or nature is sent to The Bleak, a gray island on which nothing grows, where they are to live empty and meaningless lives with no possessions for a few years before disappearing forever.
