No New Posts The United States of America
The United States may not be the oldest country around, but it has a draw to it that attracts creatures from both worlds. The land has a deep, rich history, and the native peoples knew how to utilize the sleeping magical forces that flow beneath the panorama of terrains and environments that make up the country. Though most of that lore is lost now in modern times, there are still those who remember, and who use the leylines and nodes scattered about the U.S. as sources of personal power.

No New Posts The United Kingdom
England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales comprise the United Kingdom, a nation that has been tempered by battle over the centuries, but one that still retains an intimate connection to the land. Ancient creatures from Istari have long called the U.K. home, feeling a nostalgia for the place in which so many of their kind have lived, fought, and died alongside their mortal allies and enemies. The U.K. is relatively small geographically speaking, but it is a potent source of magical and natural energy, and a magnet for those seeking such things.

No New Posts Ireland
A small piece of Istari on Earth, Ireland is where the veil between the worlds is typically the thinnest. Leylines crisscross the tiny island, pooling into nodes wherever they intersect and causing Ireland to practically overflow with magical power. Portals between the realms are more commonplace here than anywhere else, and hapless mortals have often times found themselves stumbling into Istari and back again with no inkling of what has befallen them.

No New Posts France
Charming, picturesque France has long been a haven for travelers and refugees from Istari, who are attracted to the beauty of the environment as much as they are to the country's powerful sources of natural magic. Many fey and other magical creatures have settled here permanently and started new lives and families, causing France to be home to generations of non-human creatures who have yet to venture between the realms, and many who have no intention
of doing so.

No New Posts Fey Kingdoms
Often ruled by proud elven kings and home to fey creatures of all stripes, fey kingdoms are places of legend, held in awe by all the peoples of Istari, and even rumored to exist among the humans of Earth. Comprised of ethereal cities built from crystal and magic, or wild settlements constructed in the boughs of massive, ancient trees, the these scattered settlements are as beautiful as they are mysterious.

No New Posts Wild Lands
Istari is a world of not only fantastical, magical lands and kingdoms, but of sprawling, primordial forests, swamps, and grand plains that seem to stretch on for eternity. These lands are the home to any number of intelligent creatures, as well as the natural animals that one would expect to find there. Unlike the forests of Earth, these widespread lands have yet to be broken and claimed by man, and instead remain places of great beauty and foreboding mystery.

Humans have long called Istari home, and though many of them dwell among the lands of the other races, some have banded together to establish numerous cities and villages of their own. Whether born and raised on Istari or having stumbled into the world from Earth, humans of various ancestry and ambition find comfort in the presence of others of their own kind.

No New Posts Mage Sovereignties
In ancient times, like-minded practitioners of magic gathered together and established their own cities and small nations, dedicated to the preservation and practice of the arcane arts. Now many of those humble settlements have grown into powerful political entities, places where the use of magic is as natural as breathing, and where long-forgotten lore and secret spells have been safely kept against the time when they're needed once again...

No New Posts Dominions of the Deep
Far, far beneath the surface of Istari lie a series of sprawling subterranean kingdoms that few living above have ever seen. Peopled by dwarves, earth elementals, and no few sinister creatures that fear and hate the sun, these eternally dark nations tend to care little for the affairs of others, content to keep to themselves and continue delving ever deeper, as if searching for the very roots of Istari itself.

No New Posts Oceanic Realms
The oceans, seas, and lakes of Istari are home to settlements of various nymphs, mermaids, selkies, and other aquatic creatures. Ranging from elaborate, stunningly beautiful kingdoms to small, simple settlements of like-minded beings, the strongholds of the ocean hold a mystery and beauty that members of all races envy and admire.

No New Posts Nations of the Skies
Suspended high above Istari are a handful of kingdoms kept aloft by ancient, powerful magic. The inhabitants of most of these nations tend to keep to themselves and not get involved in the affairs of the "surface dwellers." Skilled mages and various types of winged beasts and air elementals call these soaring kingdoms home, and they defend their safety and freedom valiantly.

No New Posts Defiled Regions
Defiled regions aren't in and of themselves a single entity. Rather, there are various places all throughout the other kingdoms and reaches of Istari that have been tainted, either by dark magics, plague, or warfare. These lands hold nothing but nightmares and abominable creatures better left to their own devices, though the occasional courageous adventurer will attempt to pass through them. Few ever make it out again, and those that do tend not to speak of what they experienced...

Some say that eternal nothingness would be worse even than being sent to one of the many Hells. Others claim that there is no reward, and no punishment, that there is simply the end, and nothing else. If your thread takes place in any sort of after death Limbo, post it here.
