Haven

Land of the Undying

Weep not for the death of our Lady Finality.
Weep instead for the death of our morality.

Overview

Residing on the continent of Solith, Haven has become an isolated region over the last hundred years. The region itself is well known for its countless tragedies across its history but none so prominent as the Fall of Lady Death. Once a land ravaged by war it now lays silent as life strives to find its place in a land without death.

Expanses of Haven

Haven is organized into smaller regions known as the Five Expanses. Though they are seperated in name, all five are plagued by the endless tides of the Unfallen

Verdant Expanse

As the largest expanse found within Haven, the Verdant Expanse is also considered the safest despite it's proximity to the Wyld and Blistered Expanse. Cloaked by countless trees and softly rolling hills, this expanse is easier to defend from the Unfallen than most.

The largest Expanse within Haven. It is known well for its Beastfolk and safety despite being so close to the Blistered Expanse.

Solemn Expanse

Once a prosperous expanse, the Solemn Expanse is slowly changing into a nightmarish wasteland of Blight and Unfallen as they pour out of the fallen city of Scourge. If it were not for The City of Marble and Seawatch, this expanse would have fallen long ago.

The Northern Expanse of Haven known for Blight and the Capitals of Man.

Minor Expanses of Haven

Jagged Expanse

Very little of this Northern expanse has been explored due to it's unnatural rock formations and vibrant, but deadly flora. The city of Morthaven was built to help alert the rest of Haven if intellegint life is ever spotted coming from Moorwald.

Parched Expanse

Originally known as the Lands of Exile, the Parched Expanse is a large desert of salt and sand. Until the Mohnag were banished to this Expanse, it was previously believed to support no life at all. Much to the suprise of both the Mohnag and their banishers, life has found a way even under the endless sun. Only the most resilient, and deadly, of creatures can survive under the oppressive conditions present within the Parched Expanse.

Blistered Expanse

Originally part of the Verdant Expanse, the lifeless Blistered Expanse has been steadily burning since the Fall of Lady Death. No one dares wander far into into this Expanse due to the massive amount of Unfallen gathered around Death's Cradle. The living can do little more than watch as this expanse, and its fires, expand further into the Verdant Expanse consuming everything it touches.

Looks good!   There seem to be no indication of what the Jagged Expanse is in the blurb, though. I assume mountainous and snowy. Does that effect the undead any? Also, the final bit reads a little weird: despite having explored so far south; what does that have to do with going north?   The boxes would probably look much better if they all lined up at the bottom nicely, but that may just be my OCD speaking :D

Are there other continents? Or islands? How have they fared with all this undead everywhere business?

First Comment: Is it that noticeable that I completely forgot about the Jagged Expanse? Bahaha. I will update it. I can add more words to make the boxes line up a little better. I told myself it was okay because it was an even slant. *sighs*   Second Comment: There are other continents, however, I am not delving into them for some time. If I go too macro I will never get anything done!

I really like some of the art here. The map looks good and the image used in the subarticle The Wild is beautiful.   Regarding the map; What is the little line of dots at the southwest end of the wyld? Guard posts or settlements? I find that spot interesting, maybe because its on a natural border.

Good stuff on the CSS of course Oneriwien, would expect nothing less. I love how you did the links as well. It's a great summary of the world.   I am curious why you didn't include the towns in this list to give a sort of section of their own. I know you mention em in the article, but I think a collapsible or something like that could be cool.   Keep up the great work, look forward to seeing more from you in the queue.

Heyho :)   I'm just on my mobile, so sorry in advance if some texts may be corrupt.   I really like haven but my mind has problem picturing the expanses. How does it look like? When you say subcontinent, does it mean, that it's a small continent? Maybe my language understanding just miss me here.   The interactive map is an awesome feature by the way.   Besides that I love the variety of the different expanses and I can see the ~ffort put in it. Lovely job, I will continue to read more about haven!
