Sulumus

Realm of Reflection

Introduction

A plane of endless night only lit by faint stars too far away to grasp. Here there are large mountains of snow and glacier that separate frozen lakes of black ice that seem to reflect the other realms and the secrets they hold. Though do not lose yourself to the madness that takes its toll when peering into the reflections, for if you do you shall join the others below the ice.

Meta

Sulumus is the Ice and Shadow Realm, it is located in the Artic Star Constellation.

Geography

Several continents exist seperated across oceans of black ice. Crossing form one continent to the next leads to madness as you peer into the darkness of the ocean and see those that lost their souls long before your birth.

Atmospheric Conditions

In an almost perpetual state of twilight there is little in the way of weather on Sulumus. The only time the land is bathed in light is during the rare auraras that reveal the true reality of the shadow-coated realm.

Sophonts

Phantasmal creatures that live off memories to survive. Frost-blood Hunters that ritualistically hunt their prey. A few groups of Manfolk, the most successful living in a large cavern in the mountains that is made of reflective ice, glass, and mirrors to keep the horrors at bay.

Flora

Dark tendrils that reach for stray children, bushes that hide venemous beasts, and trees that creak and groan in the cold wind.

Fauna

Lots of mammals, mostly predatory. There are a variety of elementals that exist here, all of them look like uncanny replicants of another realms element that has been tinted in frost. The best animal out of it are the Ice Hounds, the only allies to the Manfolk in this cruel realm.

Energy Sources

The Black Ice holds powers of Shadow and Light within, both Primal Shadow and Glow. To harvest it often comes at the price of sanity. The magi of this realm are often insane, or worse, at peace with what they have done to acquire their power.

Technology

The Black Ice makes up the foundation of all magic on Sulumus and is used to creat powerful artifacts, runes, and weaponry. Even the technology tree has been remade to rely upon the ice instead of refined metals such as bronze or steel.
