Erudite is the name of the planet which lies close to the center of all creation. It is a large, diverse world with many different continents. Beyond it is a space known as the ether where it is believed that Star Wisps and other gods make their homes.

Erudite was formed after the destruction of the United Plane.

Continents

Erudite has numerous different continents, some of which are split into smaller continents and islands.

Celestial bodies

Erudite is a geocentric system. It is orbited by the Sun, a Moon which cycles through many different phases as well as many other planets. While these other celestial bodies have barely been explored, they are known to have many strange magical effects on the planet itself. The effects of the different celestial bodies have long fascinated astromancers and other magic-users.

  • Moon - Home to the Moon Elves, a species of elves whose ancestors bred with the Star Wisps. The Moon orbits Erudite.
  • Ishfalla - A planet that appears in both the mornings and evenings in Erudite's sky. When visible, the effects of charm-based spells and potions are far more powerful. The planet is the corpse of the goddess of nature of the First Pantheon.

Creation's End

The universe is thought to have an edge - the outer limit of the United Plane's blast radius. It is said to be an unfathomable distance away, impossible to reach even in 1000 lifetimes. Magical theorists believe that at the very edge of creation, the ether disappears and gives way to chaotic, nonsensical, impassable land formations where the laws of physics fail to follow a consistent pattern, and the rules of magic differ drastically. Hidden among the chaos are other fantastic realms. These realms have origins totally unrelated to Ouroboros although for a long time, there was no known way to enter them until some failed experiments with summoning spells determined that one can be accidentally sent outside of Erudite and into these realms, but to never return.

Despite the chaotic landscape, it is believed that the land forms eventually run out of ways to arrange themselves and begin duplicating. While having yet to find mainstream appeal to the magical community, it is said that should one go far enough, one would find numerous copies of Erudite with minute differences from one another.
