Echoes Through Eternity
Cethanol - The Plains
Long ago the area known as the plains was called the Enchanted Fields and it was always a powerful place of magic. Legends tells that Humans, elves, dragon-born and dwarves consipired together in the Enchanted Fields to create magic and it is where Toriander, the god of magic, was born. During the Divine War, the goddess of maddness used the magical nature of the Enchanted Fields to invade the world and she turned the surrounding area into the hostile Plains.
The environment of the Plains is hostile and erratic. The weather can rapidly change from summer heat to winter cold in seconds and without warning. Tectonic forces constantly reshape the landscape, ejecting mountains and crumbling them in seconds. Only those who are protected by a High Mage are allowed to enter the Plains. Each High Mage is the four cities bordering the Plains have their own criteria for entry.
During the Divine War, the goddess created a tower out of soul stone in the center of the Plains. Since the defeat of the goddess, there have been very few expeditions into the Plains and it is unclear as to whether the tower remains.
