Macalgra is the largest, oldest and most central of the celestial bodies of Damaeus, the known universe. It is both a planet and a divine realm, and home to most of reality's sapient species, and by far the largest population of any realm. The realms of the Divine orbit Macalgra, along with the Serpent of the Moon who appears as the moon to Macalgra's denizens, and the sun, Arven. The planet is largely water, with twelve traditional named continents, and an ice covered north and south pole. Each of Macalgra's continents are small, and arguable some are not continents at all but large islands. Human habitation of Macalgra started on the continent of Terrosea, also called Sura. From there, humans spread across the surface of the world and built many disparate civilisations, only recently connected by advanced naval technology.
