In a vast world, full of dangerous territories, the Empire of Arboise has been slowly eating its way towards global domination. Year after year, its eternal rival, the Kingdom of Sanne, is becoming more cornered, more driven to act out its last rebellion...    
The world
Continents: The world is made of 3 continents, from West to East: the Sannian continent, the continent of Old Arboise and the continent of New Arboise. There are also 2 massive islandic landmasses of note: independent islands at the extreme West and the Arboisian islands in the centre of the world.   Rewilding: Since the invention of organic magitech and the many technologies that have spawned from it—in particular adjustable house technology, communication hub, and flying carriages—people's relationship with the land has widely changed. Each city can now be lot more concentrated in one area, and they can be far apart from each other while still communicating easily. This has left the surrounding areas free for rewilding.
Areas of notes
The Empire of Arboise: Spread over 3/4 of the globe, it started in the Arboisian islands from the ancient city-state of Arboise, now the capital of the empire. It expanded to the continent of Old Arboise, then to the continent of New Arboise. Its many regions have a wide variety of climates.   Arboise—Capital of the Empire: It was founded in the centre of a huge island, over an imposing river and at the crossing of trade roads. It has a temperate climate.   Ilara—Hélène's home region: One of the oldest regions of the empire, set on the coast of the continent of Old Arboise. Its lands are divided between ancient forest, wild meadows, and steppes.   Quanahr—Hélène's new town: A minor region located on the continent of New Arboise and so away from the centre of the empire and considered to be a backwater. It has a dry, arid climate but is crossed by the river that gave it its name.   Sanne—the Enemy: Outside of the empire, the Sannian continent is dominated by the Kingdom of Sanne and its capital, Sannerie. It is covered by ancient forests filled of dangerous mutated animals created with taboo magic. Its Eastern border is delimited by a river that absorbs the magic from anyone foolish enough to swim in it.   Newly conquered territories: The regions directly East of Sanne were conquered 10 years ago by Arboise during the Twelfth Sannian War.
    Regardless of the current maps, the Sanniens are determined to act while they still can, and they have kidnapped the Arboisian Emperor. Borders are likely to change soon...
