Designed as an eternal prison for the Nameless and its core minions at the end of the Dawn War, the Abyss is cut off from the direct influence of the Great Mechanism. With the events of the Cataclysm and the freeing of the Nameless and its minions (and its incorporation into reality), the Abyss is no longer a tightly guarded prison or a cyst in reality, but a haven for those who have made themselves unwelcome elsewhere. Without the circulation of anima from the Great Mechanism, abyssal denizens rely on other, less salutatory sources of power. Mostly, they consume souls. Some are willingly bargained away, others are sacrificed in blood-magic rituals.

Other than Noefra (the main play area), there are three other continents. Up until the end of the 1st Age, they were all combined into one pangean continent. Oelfra broke off first in the aftermath of the First Wish; Soefra. broke off after the Second Wish.

Northernmost Civilized Bastion

The ancestral center of the Pilvi tribe of wood elves, Pilvin Koti (literally "Pilvi's Home") wards the northern edge of the Council Lands. About two days' travel north east of Rabbit-town, only savage orc tribes, feral bands of wood elves, and forgotten ruins of ages past lie to its north.

Location

A village in the Northern District of the Stone Throne,­ Srassa Saat (“Beautiful Lake” in the local dialect) is the northern border of the Stone Throne. From there north, about 100 miles of unexplored jungle and mountains form the border region with the Council Lands.

Srassa Saat is located about a day’s journey north of Sha’slar, on the western shore of Murkwater Lake. The town is built out on piers over the marshy shore surrounding the approach to the garrison fort. Murkwater Lake has good fishing and few natural predators. It is known for seasonal storms that cause large changes in lake height during the middle-to-late summer.
