This is the node of Xoth Sarandi, the most sacred of all the elven stone circles outside of Shallenoi. And where Damon is revived with dire news.

The tenacious rule of the golden ones in Kandang had been an irritation to Scallandriax for decades, and he tore into their civilization without mercy. Many of the humans fled into the eastern forests of Qual for refuge, where groups of elves known as the Sylvan Covenant took pity on them and helped to shelter them.

Irilian is earth-dominant and strongly evil-aligned. The majority of the plane is made
up of solid rock with infrequent tunnels, Travelers run the risk of suffocation if they do not reach a cavern or other air pocket within the earth. Worse yet, individuals without the ability to burrow risk being entombed in the plane.

The elves of Ashfar call Cestine ‘the Blood Bitch’. She was in charge of the genocides during the second Equinox of the Heroes in which over three thousand captive elves were systematically beheaded at the Ziggurat of Smoke, a now-destroyed drow sacred site at Brith’s Folly.
Cestine was revived after spending more than a millennium in stasis, in accordance with a covenant that she would return to again lead the drow when the Equinox of the Heroes came round again.

Athul was lost in a titanic cataclysm that submerged the island completely. The Myrrik appeared to have been wiped out entirely; the trading ships that came found thousands of floating bodies. The sea-portal is still standing.

She has the title of Supreme Hierophant. Her House, Ormil, supplies the drow community with more priestesses than any other House. Lady Ajav’Andu is withered by age. Her hair is long gone, as are most of her teeth. She wears a ceremonial wig of fine silver chains that look nothing like hair. Her actual age is unknown but there are reliable accounts of her presence at the first attack on Shallenoi when the Drow Wars began. Some of the younger drow, drawing wild conclusions from her obvious old age, believe that she is a genuine immortal and cannot be killed.

No stat blocks- just a cool hook or two for our City in the Clouds.
Neither story is wholly true. Though she did leave Heaven, it was a voluntary departure. Vecna has a deep and tragic love for mortals and has borne half-celestial children to many. She is moved by unbearable pity for them, simply because they are doomed to die after such short lives. Instead of serving the cause of the Arch-Angels in Heaven as an obedient soldier, she chooses instead to comfort mortals directly. Here, in a place of vice and indulgence, she has found many in need of her comfort.
"I have found a way to discover what plane may be next!"
"The Grey Magi thought that if the universe was, as they believed, fundamentally mechanical, it ought to be possible to build a magical simulacrum of it. By studying that model, they could extrapolate everything that could ever be known.
To this end they created a sub-plane using epic magic and named it Nonachranon. Within their plane they built their wondrous simulacrum. The machine’s purpose was to observe, calculate and predict."

- Very little is known about the Dark, even after all this time. The angels believe the Dark is a mindless force, a mere lifeless void. When it began to act through the drow it caught the Heavens by surprise. It was clear that the Dark had some how spontaneously developed sentience and was motivated.
- One arch-angel, Tuvellan the Firecrowned, Brother of Melandrith- was certain that the Dark had been conscious all along and was only now choosing to act. He was determined to make contact with the Dark and parlay. Tuvellan insisted that the Dark was perhaps not evil but a dark elemental part of the Universe. Perhaps it could be spoken with, reasoned with. Tuvellan departed Heaven on a quest to find the conscious core of the Dark and speak to it. That was over two centuries ago; he has not been seen or heard of since.
It took an entire Pantheon of Demi-gods to destroy the Eye of Igrath. The Imponderable Pantheon is complete once again.
Arcadia- Also the name of the Plane she calls home. She is the first of this small group of Archons who have each in their own way, become demi-gods.
Damon Greef- The second of this Pantheon to be a Starborn. While Damon was on hiatus, Hombel assumed his domains.
Mountanious- Also called Kavaki "the Ram Lord" by the Goliaths. Strong and virtuous lord adventurers.
Maruis Lathander- The youngest if the Pantheon. He was 'crucified' by elves and ascended as lord of travelers and oracles.
Vecna Kovanielle- A Starborn in the first equinox, she has a tragic love for mortals and their magic. Her name is the most misused and misunderstood in the planes. She is the only non-good, non-lawful in the pantheon.
