This article has been written from an out-of-world perspective; most other articles are written from an in-setting viewpoint. This out-of-world style provides some understanding of how the worldbuilder herself imagines the Corive as a planet and a setting base.
The World as a Setting
Corive is a world where there is a melding of magic and technology because magic has always been part of the world and has influenced technology. Empires rise, empires fall, and often the advancements in social decline as technology knowledge fall out of use. Corive, or more specifically the primary setting of Soplas, is currently at an equivalent period in time similar to the early Renaissance of the 1300s to the 1400s in Western Culture.
There are still wild places to be explored beyond Soplas; however, memories of ancient schemes may be better left remembered than forgotten, lying in wait for someone to act unknowingly. Not everything dead stays that way or was when no one was around to ensure the death.
