Arelaine Players Handbook Geograpy
Arelaine Players Hand Book
Each landmass in the world is broken into 7 different regions. Each region has different races, beasts, religions, and cultures. Each region will have a basic description to give you an idea of what the world is like, without giving away secrets that your characters may not know. Only the most basic information will be presented. Some of the names of various regions and their location may change over time as I continue to build the world.
Region 1- The Baelian Empire
includes the Scouling Islands, Elail, Baely, Fowmiir, Bryth, and Reveno.
This region is located to the northeast of the planet, with the cluster of islands known as the Scouling Islands being the northern most kingdom. The weather and topography would resemble our own worlds England, Spain and France. The Scouling Islands would be a bit further north and have colder winters than the other kingdoms.
Region 2- Yeg
The Eastern and Southern coastlines are dotted with small islands, lowlands and hills. The Northwestern part is dominated by basins, deep river valleys, mountains, and dotted with volcano’s both dormant and active. located just south of the Baelian Empire, on the eastern portion of the planet. This region would closely resemble China on our own world map having a slightly warmer climate.
Region 3- Kouniga
This area is known for its mountain ranges, river valleys and massive forested areas. Many giant lakes and rivers dominate the land mass.
located to the northwest on the planet, almost directly west from the Baelian Empire. This region would closely resemble Canada and the Northern United States on our own world map and have a similar climate.
Region 4- Fuwnjara
high mountain ranges and heavily forested areas coupled with lowland regions and deserts form this land mass positioned to the south of Region 3, this area would resemble the climate of the real world middle east/ india.
Region 5- Basille
jungles, plains, mountains, long winding rivers, and everything in between this is the most exotic and largest of all the Arelaine regions, positioned in between Region 1 and 3 and south of both. Being near the planets equator it will be hot resembling our planets Africa in temperature and climate.
Region 6- Zirnalto
The geography of this region is extremely diverse, ranging from the snow-capped mountains to large deserts, tropical and temperate forests.
located just south of Region 2, this area would fit close with real world Australia in terms of temperature and climate.
Region 7- Sirab
East of Region 4 and South of Region 3 this area would be much like our own South America in climate. It contains massive rain forests, jungles and swamps, as well as volcano’s and long rivers.
The calender has 60 days per month, and as a general rule each month is Early Spring, Late Spring, Early Winter, Late Winter etc. Many of the regions may have their own names for each of the months but they all follow this basic outline. There are fewer days in the year than Earth’s calender which may suggest that this planet is alittle closer to its sun than we are to ours, accounting for the shorter seasons.
The full moon occurs on the first day and 30th day of each 60 day month. The new year is considered to fall on the first day of early winter.
