Drēússhen Castle
Drēússhen Castle is the greatest castle of the Aroramun lands, ruled by a powerful tyrant human king. He abuses every person in the castle, especially the enslaved demons. It is unknown why he terrorizes his people, but his country is falling apart from the inside.

Drēússhen Castle Grounds
Drēússhen was once a powerful, great kingdom ruled by great rulers in the grassy lands of Aroramun. However, when the current ruler, Jestronin, came to power, his cruel, tyrannical reign began. Taxes are at their highest, the peasants are nearly beggars and the rich tread with fear. Demons are cruelly abused and treated worse than dirt by the king himself. The kingdom itself is beginning to deteriorate. The castle is a sprawling palace of stone with a dozen gorgeous gardens maintained by the castle servants. There are stables, and an armament room.

Castle Gardens
The castle gardens are found in many places surrounding the castle within. Flowers of many kinds and colors fill them, as well as walk paths, benches, and places where herbs for healing are grown.

Drēússhen Castle Town
The city within Drēússhen's great walls is greatly divided between rich and poor, who supports the king, and whom doesn't, and those with little other choice.

Market Street
The market street is where all the business in the town happens. It's where pubs can be found, food, and it's where all the farmers sell the fruits of their labors.

Town Square
The town square is where everything important takes place. It's where the festivals take place, along with the executions, and where the stocks are located, which usually house at least one man everyday.

Around Town
Though the city is rundown and poor, thanks to the terrible conditions of the economy presented by their King, the locals are friendly and try their best, though most of them do nothing for free, as they cannot afford it. There is a great statue of their founding king, and a memorial to the great sorcerer whom worked by his side.

Aroramun Lands
These green, beautiful lands stretch far and wide outside the town surrounding Drēússhen Castle. Many roads stretch across the expanse of space to lead the weary traveler. Inns can be found dotting along the side of the roads. Up in the mountains or even just a mile from the roads, there are farms and vineyards, always ready to offer rooms to travelers for a price, or staples to sell.

Bēildroad Swamp
Is a very large forest. It is most well known for the swamp that encompasses half of its land. The swamp itself is home to many different monsters that feast upon flesh. However, many strange rumors have traveled across the land about the mysteries that exist within the deepest parts of the forest. All of them are frightening in nature.

The Palace Grounds
The castle rests within the heart of their great city. The Palace is made up of pure white marble. It's columns rise high into the sky, creating an elegant yet over powering feeling. Stairs lead up to the front of palace, which is surrounded by a mile of smoothed marble. All of the marble is finished and glistens in the suns powerful rays. The walls of the castle are full of carved out windows to let light fill the palace.

Palace Nengishōu
The Nengishōu are a beautiful people living within a majestic world. Their home is an island high in the sky, created and maintained through powerful native magic, which the Nengishōu perform through what appears to outsiders as song. The palace is a gorgeous, white wash structure fitted with a dome. The walls and pillars are ornately carved and statues of majestic birds dot various places atop the palace like gargoyle guardians. A particularly wonderful bird with its wings spread wide, sits atop the dome.

Town Square
The town square is located right in front of the palace. It's where all the festivals and the daily market are held. Music can always be heard, rising up into the clouds as the people try to sell their wares.

Around Town
Though the city is modest and quaint, it is festive and positive. There are many gardens and venues to see within the city. The people are friendly and welcoming, however, if a human ever finds himself in their midst, they are not quite so welcoming.

The Great Hall
This is where the pillar of their world exists. It is the only way in which passage into the Nengishiōu world can be achieved. It is a large, majestic hall filled with hundreds of voices singing. The songs come from the hundreds of women standing in alcoves just as tall and wide as they. They stand still, blindfolded and dressed in white. They sing, day and night without rest, and without any sustenance. The Nengishiōu whom exist here are extremely powerful, and though their fate is sad and often resisted, it is needed to support their world to keep them safe from the violent world below. When treading down this path, one must make sure to never linger or look upon the singing maidens, for your soul shall be taken by a vengeful guardian.

Drāshnöl Desert
Drāshnöl Desert is a nearly unlivable desert. In fact, only a few plants exist there, as they are the only things that can withstand the heat and dryness. Half the desert is rolling sand dunes and sand storms, and the other half is hard, flat rock with tall jagged mountains. It's not recommended to traverse, but many brave people try every year to reach the Dragonian homeland, some make it, and some don't.

Drelnilor Lands
Drelnilor is a rocky, volcanic stretch of mountainous land in which the Dragonian people occupy. It's treacherous and un-inhabitable for any other life form, and the Dragonians call it their home with pride. However, in the last decade a terrible and mysterious tragedy took place. In one night, the powerful, prideful Dragonian warrior nation was reduced to rubble. Many lives were lost, and as a result only a handful of Dragonian people survive today. They roam the lands, usually as mercenaries.

Crumbling Palace
The once great towering palace that was constructed of stone and the glassy volcanic rock that covers the land is now in ruins. The palace has since been raided of all of its valuables, however, there are rumors that there are still many treasures hidden inside secret rooms, but no one knows where they are.

Ulskyerdad
The dark, mysterious land in which the Goblins, Gremlins, ogres, and many other unknown evil beasts lay. Many centuries ago, a powerful sorcerer cast a massive shield displayed by a crack in the ground that seals off the wretched land. Creatures of evil could never leave, though anything can enter.

Epheariam Woods
The Epheariam woods are the woods in which the Elves live. Many mystical plants and flowers with great healing capabilities thrive. The Epheariam woods are also where the Uniconians roam. The forest is beautiful and lush and is said to house the many powerful spirits and sprites of magic. There seems to be an air of mystery and majesty about the woods that draws outsiders deep into her confines, as if entranced by her beauty and enigmatic glory.

Forest Temple
The Forest Temple is where the Elves worship the spirits of the woods and earth. It's a tall structure made up of stone and wood in the front. The rest of it is dug back into a mountainside. There are a series of rooms meant for prayer and contemplation and the main room, which is the first room entered, is a place where other types of rituals relating to spirits and healing take place.

Osaugal Castle
Osaugal Castle is a very organic structure. It's located deep in the forests in which the Elves live. It's located on the forest floor, but stretched high into the treetops. Beautiful woodcarvings of religious stories are etched into the wood of the palace. Words in ancient Elvin tongue are carved into beams and above doors, all of which hold mystical power. The palace itself is a marvel of natural beauty, though the structure is very obviously man built.
