• Ettara and the Kalladis Archipelago

    One of the five continents, Ettara effectively shut its borders to the world when the druids overthrew the faerae. Since no one has entered or emerged from this continent in over two decades, it has largely become a place of myth. There are many written records, telling of great cities and powerful creatures in a land filled to the brim with magic, but the records were created so long ago that no one believes them anymore. However, in the ensuing centuries, the Ettarans have only grown in power. As a testament to the great power and the importance of magic, the capital of Skyna is home to the powerful Magician’s…

  • The Dark Saga places: Kastana and the Frozen Lands

    As of right now, I’m thrilled to have power, but as this storm is due to stick around until Friday morning, I still have to keep my fingers crossed and am writing this as fast as I can. I suppose in honor of this messy east coast weather I’ll be writing about two very cold continents. Kastana is a peanut shaped continent north of Dyjakt. To the west is the Zamra Archipelago and Mystic Island, the fabled burial ground of now long forgotten faerae Queens.

  • The Dark Saga places: Hytara

    One of the continents of the world, it lies just south of Dyjakt across the Tsala Sea. Most of it is taken up by the Hytara Desert. Not much is known of the desert or the rest of the continent since the desert is nearly impossible to cross and the druids restricted sea travel after they took over in Meridian. There are stories of magnificent cities and exotic races, but these have become little more than myth. In actuality, outside of the desert, Hytara is a wasteland. Formerly the main home of the sliders, it was abandoned when they joined the druids. It had been magnificent at one time. Hytara…

  • The Dark Saga places: Dyjakt

    Dyjakt is one of the world’s five continents and is where most of the story takes place. As the most populous continent in the known world, it also serves as the world’s seat of power from which the druids, formerly the faerae, rule. It is also the home of the majority of the human race, though they confine themselves to the northeastern corner as they are the only race incapable of using magic. Dyjakt is surrounded by 5 seas: the Morlay Ocean to the north, Sea of Mystica and the Eswyn Ocean to the west, the Tsala Sea to the South, and the Cabree Sea to the east. Some notable…
