Geography

Starari has three continents and a smattering of islands and archipelagoes. The smallest continent is Pangai, which has a shape and size similar to North America, though somewhat elongated along the latitudes. Its southernmost tip just crosses the world equator, and the mountainous northern portion that would correspond to Canada stretches further North to cap the world’s Northern pole. The second largest continent is called Longai, is roughly the size of Africa, has a somewhat hour-glass-like shape to it and straddles the world equator. The largest continent of them all (called Tengai) is a massive, flat continent on the bottom of the world that is roughly 10-20% larger than our Antarctica, with the edges being comparable to some of the more tolerable portions of Canada or Russia. Otherwise, the interior of Tengai is a hellish frozen tundra devoid of all life and interesting features.

The ocean between the Eastern edge of Pangai and the Western edge of Longai is called the Ocean of Light, while the ocean between the Western edge of Pangai and the Eastern edge of Longai is referred to as the Ocean of Darkness. The waters surrounding Tengai are called (collectively) the Frozen Sea. The reasoning for these names are simple- The Ocean of Light is typically calm and clear, though plagued with little in the way of wind, necessitating reliance on oceanic currents for travel. The Ocean of Darkness is quite the opposite, constantly overcast and often rainy, if not out-right tossed by storms. Wind is common, too common, and too strong, and the currents are fast and turbulent. Travel is rare, dangerous, and never performed without intense magical aid. The Frozen Sea is… Well, exactly what it says on the tin. Lots of icebergs, lots of cold. Pack fur!
