Lloegyr

“There have been many names for our world: Kala, Eorthe, Midgard, Erce the Mother. The Khemitians call it Geb; the ancient Hyperboreans,—who were giants among men, conquerors and builders—called it Boros after their homeland under the Pole Star. The Daanites, the last remnant of that ancient and noble race by their own reckoning, call it Lloegyr, which in their tongue means the Lost Lands and, I suppose, in a way that’s really what it is…lands that once felt the tread of civilization’s true grandeur and now exist as but a shadow of that former glory. But for most it has no real name at all; it is just the earth we live on, and toil upon, and call home, and to whose embrace we one day return.   These Lost Lands exist on three known continental landmasses, with two great oceans beyond which none have ever explored. The Tempest Meridians, a line of storms and rough seas where navigational techniques fail and ships founder that exists in each direction across the seas from the known continents, bar safe passage and hold their secrets close. He that braves the oceans Uthaf or Oceanus to successfully chart the Tartaren Passage to that green sea of darkness beyond will surely know much renown and be remembered in history as the greatest of explorers.   The center of modern civilization as we know it resides on the largest continent, Akados, seat of the former Borean Monarchy of the Foerdewaith (now our fractured Kingdoms of Foere) and long-lost home of the ancient Hyperborean Empire, that glorious bastion of civilization that was and is no more. To the north lies the frozen polar continent of Boros from which the Hyperboreans first descended to bring their learning to the world and where, perhaps, they returned when their time of ascendance ended. To the east, across the Gulf of Huun, lies the second-largest continent, Libynos, where the Triple Kingdom of Khemit, the Ammuyad Caliphate, and the city-states of the Crusader Coast hold sway, though the dark interior of endless jungle and svelte knows many other cultures barely glimpsed in the west.   The blessed light of Rana, the Sun, holds court in the firmament during the hours of the day, rising in the east and setting in the west, and the night sky of Lloegyr serves as the abode for the moons Narrah, the Pale Sister, and smaller Sybil, the Dark Sister, as they weave their intertwining course sunwise through the darkness. A multitude of stars add their jeweled illumination to the Sisters, the brightest of which is Oliarus, the winking Pole Star that hovers above the northern homeland of the Hyperboreans, ever awaiting their return. Other stars of note that travel across the night sky are Mulvais the Red Star, Cyril the Blue Chariot, and Xharos the Black Star, though the astrologers of ancient Hyperborea tell us that these are actually planets like our own world, spinning in emptiness thousands of leagues away, as preposterous as that may sound. Their ancient scrolls also hint that there may be other worlds unseen even farther away. Better to leave such fancies to god-touched fools and the mad.”
