Darkworld is a dimension formed from the dreams of the cosmic being of the same name due to it's great power and the home to ancient Atlantean gods.

History

Originally, the realm was controlled by the eponymous being's sleeping consiousness and Calculha, considered both his protector and peer.[1] The dimension produced energies (called mana) in excess and was once harnessed by ancient Atlanteans as their magical source.[2] Though other Atlanten gods also held power within the realm, he Weaver eventually became the sole ruler over the realm after being sealed in by the sorcerer, Arion.[3]

Eventually, the Darkworld entity woke from it's slumber, the realm lost and it's deities de-powered.[4] Thousands of years later, the entity began falling into a slumber once more and began anchoring it's magical energies to Earth. Due to the intervention of Arion, the entity merged with Daanuth was trapped a state between sleep and wakefulness, freezing Darkworld's magical energies upon Earth and re-empowering it's former gods.[5]

Points of Interest

Infinite in size[7], it is notably difficult to traverse to new locations due to it's constantly changing nature. Travel from Darkworld to other locations outside is said to only be done the same way one had entered Darkworld originally..[8]

Locations

  • Nexus: The converging point between Darkworld and other worlds, the pyramid structure is sentient and houses a portal that allows one to leave the dimension. Within the Nexus, death is impossible due to the nature of the portal only allowing one soul to pass at a time, with a "Keeper" forced to battle others for usage and the loser inheriting the position. After Arion became trapped in Darkworld and showed compassion, unlike any previous challengers, the Nexus rewarded his efforts by allowing him and the Keeper to use the portal at the same time.[8]

Residents

Notes

  • After Rebirth, Darkworld exists in a different format; it is said to be one of the names of Other Place used throughout history by magicians.[9]


Trivia

  • Because time flows differently for the unnamed cosmic entity, Darkworld's time does as well, with each year being the equivalent of 10,000 years on Earth.
