Sunburst Physical / Metaphysical Law in Ethnis | World Anvil


Sunbursts are a phenomena on Jhoutai where the hot sun gains prolonged access to the surface through gaps in its dense clouds, rapidly burning and killing wildlife.

When a Sunburst hits the surface, it tends to create powerful winds and updrafts that many life forms have adapted to take advantage of, including many fungaloids that use it to carry their spores upwards.

The sun on Jhoutai is not always the welcome sight that we've come to think of it of as Earthlings. For them, a day exposed to the harsh Jhoutaioan sun can be fatal, resulting in peeling skin and blindness. For this reason, those traveling on foot often do so with coverings handy, should the clouds break and the sun draw its searing claws across the land.

The clouds broke and the long, burning sunrays of the sun reached down to the Earth.

Where the sun touched, the leaves of plants pulled in upon themselves and darkened, rejecting its burning glow and hunkering down to survive its scathing heat.

Our caravan stopped and threw up tents and parasols. Nobody was to move or generate more body head than needed. We had to endure the same as everything else.

This sounds beautiful, even if it is very dangerous for the Jhoutai.

You should check out the The 5 Shudake, if you want of course.

Oh wow, this sounds terrifying to experience.   '[S]hould the clouds break and the sun draw its searing claws across the land.' This phrase is beautiful, I love it.

is this the same planet that has the red spore rain? I'm starting to think that It's better just to stay inside.
