The Void

Written by Sodose

The Void is both beautiful a strange at the same time. Great flying leviathans soar though the reddish clouds, and titanic ships fly of the astral winds from world to world. When you think of the word void you often think of a great lightless abyss full of unknowable creatures. This void is nothing like that, it is a place of dreams, both good and bad. Those that have mastered the art of dreaming, called the lucid, can shape the fabric of the void and project themselves into it from their world through meditation. The most powerful lucids can even create their own private worlds and magically breed unique creatures.

Geography

Hundreds of world drift in the Void, each one with its own geography. Some of these worlds are only small earth motes, while others are massive complexes of islands, covered in cities. Sometimes the clouds of the void become solid allowing humanoids to build palaces and cities on them.

Fauna & Flora

Some worlds are more "in" the void than others. Those that are fully effected by the void are covered in strange and beautiful plants and animals. Living in the void it's self are thousands of magnificent creatures, with an infinite variety of forms.

History

The Void was the primal font of power that all of life issued forth from. It's history is the history of every world, every creatures, or structure that ever existed. There was once no like I the world, only a great expanse of darkness. Then, for reasons unfathomable by man, came a single spark of light. And in that light came forth thousands of possibilities each forming into a human being. These fist men and women forged the first worlds from that spark of light. For ever world they created the light grew stronger, and bigger, and soon became what’s we know as the Void.

Tourism

Sight-seers from advanced worlds will often travel to exceptionally beautiful parts of The Void to see some special creature, or cloud formation as humans do.

The Darkness

Although the void is large, it still has it’s boundaries. Where the ends is called the Darkness, or the Primordial Dark. The infinite expense of nothingness has a evil mind of it’s own, it is the place where daemons come from and it is endlessly sending it’s minions after the Lucids to destroy them and their creations. The Darkness is the only thing that can kill a lucid so many of the gifted fear it. Some Lucids think it is there duty to fight the Primordial Dark and risk life and limb to protect their worlds against it.
Alternative Name(s)

Gravity in The Void

Gravity is very strange in the void. In some places it is extremely powerful, while in other places there seems to be none at all. The Creatures of the void Have evolved to accommodate for there odd splotches of misdirected force, using them as a bird would use an air current. The strange gravity of the void does however mess with those that travel through the void in ships and void crafts. These astral sailors must plot carefully paths that seer clear of dangerous gravitational dynamics.

Are said leviathans based of the Wind Fish from Zelda? Also "sour" should be "soar" "lusids" should be "lucids" and "privet" should be "private". Hope that helps!

29 Jun, 2020 11:14

Thank you so much!

29 Jun, 2020 11:19

Fixes = done. The leviathans are based off of the sky whales in the Magic the Gathering kaladash world, not zelda.

Great article and concept! Is the void inspired by lucid dreaming? One thing, you made a spelling mistake in the void is nothing LIVE that

1 Jul, 2020 16:29

Ah, it's my dam auto-correcting program again. Thanks, good eye. Ya, I got this idea after watching a documentary about lucid dreaming and the matrix back-to-back. And I was able to fully flesh out the details after experiencing a lucid dream myself.
