Temphere summary I'll write later

PlanesEdit

Temphere has a uniquely high overlap with its neighboring planes. In most universes, planar travel is rare and difficult, but in Temphere, planes frequently and sometimes even predictably overlap onto one another. These occurences are known as crossover, and allow easy access to both planes involved.

Temphere/The Material PlaneEdit

As the material plane, Temphere is considered the center plane of the planar system. Most of the world's sapient races are native to Temphere, which has much more diverse environments than the other planes.

The FeywildeEdit

A largely forested plane whose inhabitants can be quite peculiar; it’s quite likely they inspired more than a few of the odd “fey tales” told to Tempheran children. Eladrin elves, satyrs, sprites, hags, and a number of other Fey Folk call this realm home. This is the plane that crosses over into Temphere most frequently and most predictably.

ShadowfellEdit

As the name implies, a dark and sinister plane adjacent to Temphere. While not all creatures native to this plane are evil, a vast majority are. Fortunately, crossovers with this plane are exceptionally rare thanks to a bargain struck between Dalone, the god of trickery, and the ruler of Shadowfell. Occasional crossovers still happen, particularly when extremely powerful mages tamper in opening cross-planar portals. Natives of this realm are ancestors - some distant, others not so distant - of Temphere’s tieflings.

The Elemental PlanesEdit

Four elemental planes, and four broad borders between them, exist near enough to Temphere to sometimes cross over. The four elemental planes are Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Many - though not all - of the creatures native to these planes are considered elemental creatures; contrastingly, the Aarakocra are a humanoid race native to the Air realm. Between these main planes are smaller bands of mixed elements - the planes of Ice, Ooze, Magma, and Ash. 

The Astral PlaneEdit

This plane is all vast, unending ocean, spattered through with colored pools that can be used to travel to other planes. It’s also considered the realm of thought and dreams.

The Ethereal PlaneEdit

A similarly vast, but fog-covered, solid-ground plane.

Continents and CountriesEdit

AbaltaEdit

Forlonde
A kingdom of primarily Sun elves. Warforged originated from the country this kingdom once formed with Allanar, until conflict between sibling rulers caused a civil war that divided the noble homes into two separate countries.

Allanar
A kingdom of primarily Sun elves. Warforged originated from the country this kingdom once formed with Forlonde, until conflict between sibling rulers caused a civil war that divided the noble homes into two separate countries.

Vanessaril (formerly Siluth)
Siluth was once a large city in the kingdom from which Forlonde and Allanar originated; during a battle for the city between the two countries, something strange, magical, and devastating struck the city, causing huge damage, blighting the land, and giving the warforged in its wake, and all those who came after, full sapience and free will. The land has yet to recover and has been abandoned; the elves of Forlonde and Allanar refer to it only as Vanessaril, Elvish for "disappeared."

Roview
A very agrarian society where much of the continent’s food comes from. This country is a homoeland of halflings, but a solid chunk of dwarves also live here, many in paid service to build coastal defenses against storms, pirates, and other threats to the breadbasket of this continent. Others are in search of mines or stone that can’t be found in their other holdings, work as blacksmiths for large areas and farms, or themselves work the open lands. Humans also farm here in sizeable numbers.

Bravaztag
Most of the people in this country are dwarves who live in the mountains, though the country extends beyond the mountain ranges. It’s name literally translates as “brave new”.

Kaldara
You are here! A very species-diverse and climate-diverse country, led by a monarch but one who is beholden to regionally-appointed court members.

MarsyanaEdit

Climate(s): Rainforest, jungle, plains, sparse forest, coast
People(s): Tabaxi, kenku, aarakocra, yuan-ti, orcs, wood elves

Toborra
Climate(s): Jungle
People(s): Tabaxi (Jaguar and tiger-type), wood elves
Government: Consul of the Prides - representatives from several branches of tabaxi society who are chosen by those branches to speak on their behalf. An additional Consul of the People sends its own representative to speak for the affairs of non-tabxi in the region, aside from the wood elves, who have their own secondary Consul due to the high population. A yuan-ti consul was considered for a time as well during a period of high immigration due to conflict in their home country, but peace was settled first and most yuan-ti chose to return home.

Neririeth
Climate(s): Sparse forests, open grasslands
People(s): Wood elves, kenku, aaracokra, halflings and gnomes

A primarily wood elf society preserves this part of the natural world, protecting it from colonization and expansion. They have somewhat tenuous relations with their eastern neighboring nation, as they cut them off from trade with that particular coast; a treaty requires they allow passage of small caravans, but without roads, it’s a venture few make.

Karakune
Climate(s): Sparse forests, open grasslands
People(s): Kenku, aaracokra, halflings and gnomes

A primarily kenku nation, though aarakocra are also common here. The people of this nation live fairly pastoral, calm lives and have a high population of crafters. They engage in a good deal of trade, importing raw goods and exporting finished products.

Ahrriack
Climate: Plains, sparse forest
People(s): Aaracokra
Government: Extraplanar

A patch of Temphere where the air realm crosses over with particular frequency, it was deemed to belong to that realm rather than Temphere. The Temphere part of the land is left something akin to a wildlife reserve; a few ranger’s stations are located throughout, and occasional outlaws and other such parties looking for hiding may attempt to disappear here - though first they would need to get through the aarakocra guards around the border.

Coatnahuoc
Climate: Rainforest
People(s): Yuan-ti, scalefolk

The yuan-ti’s original homeland, and divided further into four smaller nations, each ruled by a “house” of yuan-ti dating back to antiquity. Equally ancient are the squabbles between these houses, some of which still linger. Some scalefolk clans make their home in this region as well, and some have also been drawn into this long-time drama.

Broriden
Climate: Rainforest, coastal jungle
People(s): Orcs, wood elves
Government: Monarch and a council of tribal leaders

Orcs and wood elves originated from the same land, but while wood elves were quick to spread elsewhere, orcs preferred to remain in their homeland. Immensely valuing family bonds, individual strength, and strong belief in powerful connection to particular lands led to a long legacy of violent conflict over territory and/or insults to one’s family, strength, or honor. In more recent history, orcish society has undergone a great deal of change to honor and protect these things without resorting to violence. This nation is home to impressive cities, with orcs being strong and capable masons, smiths, and carvers.

NayamaraEdit

Climate(s): Desert/savannah


KohdohlEdit

Climate(s): Desert/savannah, mountains/canyons, forest, plains & fields
People(s): Dwarves, tabaxi, halflings and gnomes, changelings

Caalpaw
Climate: Desert and savannah
People(s): Tabaxi (esp. serval and caracal), kobold, aarakocra

Aevenkaurit
Climate(s): Canyonlands, some desert to the north
People(s): Dwarves

The name of this region is Dwarvish for “sunset stones.”

Iaphoros
Climate(s): Desert, glass desert
People(s): Plane of Fire peoples
Government: Extraplanar

A chain of ‘islands’ where the Plane of Fire regularly crosses over. The heat from these frequent, long-lasting crossovers and their inhabitants bleed into Temphere and create rough rings of glass around the areas they commonly appear. These glass deserts are even less hospitable than the rest of the desert around them, and are generally uninhabited even by animals.

Narvandor
Climate(s): Forest
People(s): Wood elves, elves, Feywilde races

The name of this forest is Elvish for “stone forest”

Sansester
Climate(s): Savannah and grassland
People(s): Tabaxi (esp lion and leopard), humans, halflings, dwarves

Home to the Stetpar savannah

Ruthorham
Climate(s): Grassland, plains, hills
People(s): Halflings, humans, dwarves, tabaxi, elves

Iskia
Climate(s): Coastal
People(s): Scalefolk, humans

A particularly good coast for stargazing, this small country is held by a line of bronze dragons and their scalefolk compatriots in service to Matune, the god of the moon.

ElaoradelEdit

Climate(s): Taiga forest, mountains
People(s): High (moon) elves, drow elves

This continent gave rise to the drow elves and the moon elves; drow elves come from the east side of the Vontirith Mountains, the moon elves the west side. The name comes from the elvish words for “winter” and “moon”.

Ahnvaeshantar
Climate(s): Taiga forest
People(s): Drow elves

This taiga forest grows thickly enough to obscure the light in some places, and is cold enough that its people delved underground to escape the worst of the weather. Despite this, the name of the country is Undercommon for “Night Trees”

Selvonrune
Climate(s): Taiga forest, open ice
People(s): Moon elves

Vontirith Mountains

BrindaleEdit

Both a continent and a country made up of two large landmasses. Northern Brindale is a trading hub between the eastern and western landmasses, as well as to some extent the north and south, while Southern Brindale is almost exclusively agricultural in nature. The two landmasses are connected by multiple elaborate bridges, for which the region is known.

Brindale is so important to Temphere as a whole that an entire council of representatives handle its government. While much of Northern Brindale is dedicated to the shipping of goods and the construction and repair of ships, significant resources are also pooled into the hosting and training of a local militia, including mages, whose loyalty is to Brindale itself rather than any one country. There have been multiple attempts throughout history to seize Brindale, but the militia and/or other nations allying to free it once more have kept it a free nation.

SirioneEdit

Both a continent and a country, this large island nation was once most noteable for its mines - it is now equally if not better known for the technology that comes from the city of Ibatana.

Bodies of WaterEdit

OceansEdit

  • Crown Ocean - The ocean encasing the top half of the globe.
  • Morshinir Ocean - “Morshinir” means “crossing” in Draconic, as this is the only ocean dragons generally cross.
  • Sigeyn Ocean - “Sigeyn” means “Snowbringer” in Elvish

SeasEdit

  • Gananet Sea
  • Sennebian Sea
  • Bexwrath Sea
  • Morintane Sea

Other BodiesEdit

  • Portmer Strait
  • Sunderholm Strait
  • Adoalus - A bay of Elaoradel; its name means “calm waters.”
