Some basic info.

Tarvakar, the continent, is the northern continent on what is considered the western hemisphere.
The southern continent was destroyed, leaving only the Blazing Shore and a few small islands. To the west the First Lands block all passage and so for now only the dragons know what lands are beyond. To the east the desert of Jex and Hildigran slowly becomes grasslands and great plains forming the continent the locals call Aggomar. what lays farther east none are quite sure.

Current Year is YH 1998. a note on time keeping.

The Northern nations are (from west to east): Gennemon, Jadavac, UUN, Katoon, and the Fire Elves.

The Central Nations are (clock-wise from the north-west): Storm Peak Mountain, Great Velt, Orgnulgo forest, Yasten Hills, Kor, Doonan, Hildigran, Jex, Zwitch Desert, the Bloodlands, Terminia, Ardinia, Peltesh, and the Dwarfs of the Copper Hills.

The Southern nations are (clock-wise from the north-west): the dwarfs of the Steel Mountains, Vigil, Janid,Melkin, Rabidash, Virox, Euphibia, Ichia, Lunidan, Wartooth, Beld, the Tetch Swamp, vigil again then the First Lands.

The Island Nations (& underwater too!) are…. lets just list the closest groups for now from west to east: Yaz, the Beldish Isles call the Nunk’ul’urgli Islands by the natives, and the Dusk Island.

Gods of Tarvakar

These beings made the world. They do not gain power from mortal worshipers and so have very few. They are more forces of nature then gods and for the most part do not interfere, or notice, mortals.

Format is Name, Role, Influences.

Oceanna. Goddess of Water. Travel, Knowledge.

Nymbus. God of air. Weather, Divination, War.
Nymbus is the second most worshipped of the elemental gods, the first being his brother Tarvakar god of earth. Nymbus is worshipped in Euphibia, Velt, Jadavac, Hildigran, elemental forest and many of the islands. Like all the elemental gods most of his worshipers are non human. He is worshipped by cload and storm giants, Silver and Blue Dragons and farmers everywhere. Most of his clerics and worshipers are sky elves. He is seen as the creator of weather, thats why the farmers pray. Many divinators follow him. He is the elemental War god and strikes down those who offend the elder gods. He is a bit self centered and really wants to be worshipped more then his brother. Nymbus grants more flashy powers, lightning and yes flight, then his siblings in hopes of winning more followers. He does this out of pride not need. He is not the strongest of the Elemental gods. Nymbus created the Sky Elves and is terribly afraid of Star Crested Fidgets despite being the patron of all birds. This started not to long ago when the odd bird was first found, it was assumed to be Nymbus’s creation. The gods followers denied it up and down, even commune with higher plane spells have given firm but vage "no"s. Many of the best magic bows, duh, are made by his druids and rangers.
