The Time of Change
The world of Sanctuary is a vast disk. At the center, more commonly called the Hub, is the Maelstrom, the Eternal Storm. This is the source of the ocean, which eternally falls over the Rim. Thus the Eternal Storm renews the ocean, for without it the ocean would eventually run dry.
It is said that, if one sails across the ocean, then one will find many other continents spread across the world. However, for the people of Eden, only three others are known. There is the continent of Altriv, the land which all the Fair Races come from and which can be found north west of Eden. There is the continent of Vellun, the land which all the Beastly races come from and which can be found south west of Eden. And there is the Lost Land, a mysterious and dangerous place found south east from Eden.
