Drake's Dozen

Revolution is coming

Industrial, magical, political; the dual-moon planet of Neyush is on the precipice of change.

People of many different species, reeling from the effects of the Great War almost two centuries ago, are accelerating into a new age, fueled by innovative discoveries and forgotten secrets. The event that ended the war and decimated an entire people is referred to as The Blink.

No-one knows how or why it happened, though many have theories.

Little fish, big pond

The Blink also brought change to the Dozen.

Empty metaphysical Spheres of existence, or the homes of unknowable, ancient gods? Opportunities for life-enhancing magitech, or eldritch traps waiting to ensnare the curious? Aspects of reality as normal as time and gravity, or complex creations of the Drake herself?

Whatever the Dozen truly are, something is different now. Something changed with the Blink. Something is coming to Neyush.

Are the secrets behind the Dozen the key to saving it, or the catalyst for its doom?

Frozen Desert

As the name implies, the Frozen Desert is cold. The unique climate and surrounding mountains in this region of Monyus mean there is almost no rainfall.

Frost and snow might dust the tops of dunes and hills, but for the most part, the desert looks just the same as any you might find in Chezri.

Localized Phenomena

The main exception to the inhospitability of the desert is the Purple Oasis, an impossibly large copse of opulent plantlife, ranging from pale blue to deep purple.

While undeniably magical in nature, no-one has been able to determine what caused it, or from which Sphere it draws its magic.

Some theories hold that the Oasis is powered by Push magic, but it's equally possible that it draws from the Beast or the Storm.


Followers of Nachi, almost completely comprised of Monoduga, regularly make pilgrimages across the desert to the Purple Oasis.

Pilgrims traditionally take no supplies, vowing to live off the sparse vegetation and lizards that inhabit it. It's a long, arduous trek, so many either give up or perish in their pursuit of the mythical goal of Nachi: to become a Conduit of two opposing Spheres.
