World of Neyathis

By:


A common theme is war and displacement, and the folly of man reaching too far and casting himself down into darkness.

NayathisWorld

The world of Nayathis is the home of many of my Submissions.

It is divided into several continents separated by wide seas, allowing for isolation and completely divergent developments.

So far there are four major continents:

Neyathis - Principle continent of the world. Size of Africa, running from 65 north to the equator, ~4000 miles x 3500 miles.
Rephatia - Homeland of the insidious Rephatians, the twisters and devourers of humanity.
Kargois - The near-empty continent home to the Magnificent City of Stoneholt
Sagaris - Neyanthian Antartica, a huge southern continent locked in an eternal ice-age.

This world is largely an earth-analog, but with smaller continents. Lifeforms are in most cases Earth analog with some divergences.

A detailed history will be added later, but greatly shortened, the world has changed hands both divinely and physically several times, being dominated by different sets of divinity and life over the eons. Humanity and a dozen pantheons hold control now, but they are not the first and arrived here from elsewhere.

Even once Humanity arrived, grand empires and civilizations have risen from bronze to nearly industrial ages several times and have come crashing to the ground again and again.

A common theme is war and displacement, and the folly of man reaching too far and casting himself down into darkness.

Racy Religion

       By: Spark

On a certain continent, nearly all kingdoms worship under the same pantheon. However, in the southern reaches the peoples take a much more...liberal stance on their Gods. Statues are nude, and very anatomically correct, and icons are often startlingly brazen. For instance, the icon of (insert name), the goddess of love, is an image of two nude twins embracing in a passionate kiss, signifying the love of both family and partner. This is a source of unending outrage and offense for the Northern churches, whose traditional and modest take on religion is constantly at odds with the near-blasphemous ideals of the Southerners. While this is not enough to provoke outright conflict, there is more than enough simmering discontent and long-held grudges between the two hemispheres.
