Ravare

Introduction

Ravare is an ever-expanding plane. It is believed to be the largest and most ecologically diverse plane currently known to exist. Due to its size and diversity, the land is filled with deep history, powerful entities, and thickening plots. Much of the plane is actually made up of a single, near Endless Ocean that separates the various continents apart.
Being separated by such massive, uncharted regions of open ocean has led the various continents of Ravare to seem to be almost like their own unique planes in and of themselves. Believed to be unique to Ravare, these continents actually have some form of Divine gravitation to them that attracts life towards the center of each continent. This gravitation is used to explain why species often travel massive distances to reach from one continent to another.

Laws of the Realm

Natural Laws

Ravare is open to the infleunce of the Elemental Planes and thus has vibrant geology, ecology, and a diverse set of flora and fauna native to it. Each continent has greater or weaker access to different Elemental Planes making it so that no two continents are alike in geography or ecology.
Ravare is open enough to the Elemental Planes to permit the use of Naturalists magic with little to no complication. Due to this level of connection, Ravare itself is also at the whim of various Elementals that have made the plane their permanent home.

Arcane Laws

Ravare has a seemingly infinite source of energy known as Mana that can be harnassed by Magi and related spellcasters to perform unnatural feats such as spellcasting, enchanting, or runescribing. This Mana, while infinite, can be drained from a location and moved to another making blackout zones where no magic is possible. Interestingly, these Mana free zones also seem to remove the ability to cast spells of Naturalists and Theurgists as well.

Divine Laws

Divinity is not an unknown concept to the various planes of existance. On Ravare, the large diversity of species found throughout the various continents leads to a higher saturation of Faith and Worship available. Because of this there are far more Divine on Ravare than most other planes. This saturation is not evenly distributed across the entire plane. Certain continents, such as Solith, have enough Faith to sustain dozens of Divine while others, such as Helt, are only able to sustain a small handful.

Continents

Solith

Solith is a troubled realm with many of its conflicts linked to its numerous and petty Divine. Los'Mozakas, a region of dense rainforest and sickyly swamps, makes up the Eastern side of the continent. Haven, a land of verdant valleys and strong religious influences, makes up the Western side. Seperated from the rest by the mountain range known as the Throat of the World is Moorwald, a land of wind and frost, that covers the Northern tip of the continent.

I really like the red note at the beginning with the warning about the meta-knowledge. I think it is not necessary to repeat it again in the "Laws of the Realm" section.   It'd be interesting to know exactly how the elemental planes influence the continents. Perhaps an example showing two areas that are closer to different planes would be educational.   I'm not quite sure what the following terms are, perhaps a tooltip would work well: Divine gravitation, and Naturalist magic. (Whilst naturalist gets a tooltip later on, I feel like it's best to explain terms to the reader either every time, or the first time, so that they are not left wondering what something is.)   Although only Solith has a description, I really like the concise but full description provided. It's enough to have a good mental image of what that continent consists of. Cool work!
