Garden of Spirits
That land looks so beautiful and peaceful that it is hard to believe just how dangerous it really is.The Garden of Spirits is the area surrounding Belletawa Mountain. It is lush and fertile, all life blossoming here due to high levels of divine energy seeping from the Pool of Life. However, the same energy attracts the presence of countless spirits. As a result, the region is very sparsely populated and inhabited exclusively by deities and powerful mages.
The region has no formal borders and is most commonly defined as the area from which you could see Belletawa Mountain with your own eyes while standing on flat ground. Most of the people here live around the mountain itself, where land is covered by thick grassland. However, woods start to take over the further you go from the centre. Unsurprisingly, it is the other way around for the hills which are much more prominent closer to Belletawa Mountain. Numerous streams run down from the mountain, providing fresh water to everyone living near it.
Fauna & Flora
The Garden of Spirits is sprawling with wildlife. All sorts of animals and plants can be found here, with an exceptional quantity of magic ones present due to both divine and arcane energies from the Pool of Life. Besides, many animals are possessed by especially strong spirits from among those inhabiting the region. This is especially true for the carnivores, which serve as a first layer of defence against anyone who would dare approach the mountain.
The region is abundant in many different rare resources formed under the influence of its strong magic background. It is especially renowned for its magic-rich metals, which are rare to be found in places safe enough to mine. The land also produces many edible plants and is partially cultivated in some of the more populated areas. However, while safe for the local population, much of the Garden's food can be poisonous to the common folk exactly due to its richness in arcane energy.
Belletawa MountainIn the centre of the Garden of Spirits stands Belletawa Mountain, much prominent for having the Pool of Life on its top. Although completely shrouded in rumours, even more than everything else concerning this region, the mountain is considered sacred by all races. Many people believe it to be the place where future gods are born, often attempting to reach it to no avail.
Pool of LifeLocated on top of Belletawa Mountain, it is famed to be the most potent Place of Power ever found. The prime purpose of the Pool of Life is to aid gods in their evolution. By absorbing the divine energy released by the process, the water in it became a concentrate capable of healing damage to the aura, including that suffered during the evolution.
