The Kingdom of Dyanmurs
Encompassing a wide stretch of temperate plainsland in the southern portion of the Frastlandish colony of Nurlinga is the petty Kingdom of Dyanmurés. Inhabited almost entirely by centaurs, one might wonder what strange architecture and infrastructure might be built to accommodate these tauroidal creatures. The answer, in fact, is rather underwhelming - aside from wider and taller doorways, their halls and dwellings, all constructed from sodgrass and reeds and stones in absence of timber of any sort, differ very little from the huts of most primitive societies. They do not build any round huts, instead they are all triangular prisms.
Every village in Dyanmurés is reserved for the use one tribe - a stone sign marking each one makes it very, very clear to any travellers who would willingly seek shelter beneath something other than their own tent. The centaurs have constructed no cities, no architectural wonders displaying their culture and history through stone and steel, yet on

The Quest of the Sundered Cosmos
Five adventurers; Tsanaq-lu, Swanson, Darien, Albrys and this other guy meet up before King Euric of Wheland in his citadel at Tarrin, who orders them to head to Davinport to get a ship to investigate why the sun is black and that there are no more moons or stars in the night skies. The ship is guarded by a man in a purple hat. They then head all the way to Davinport, buying a wad of smoked cheese on the way. Darien pilfers the ship owner's hat, and they head off to the barren sea to see that it is thickly enshrouded in prismatic mists.
They find an island and anchor the ship to a stable part of the waters, where they see a giant oyster beneath the ship. Darien ties a ten meter rope around his waist and has Albrys and Swanson hold on to the rope. Tsanaq-lu gives Darien a needle laced with paralysis poison, and Darien dives in. He successfully paralyzes the giant oyster, and siezes the giant black pearl. Then he tugs the rope twice and is hauled back up on deck. Swanson gives a dramatic

The Enclave of Piv Flidij
The Enclave of Piv Flidij
Far north in the wind-battered icy tundra of Xahdli, amid a questionable landscape of impossibly tall mesas of burgundy stone streaked with orange, is a convoluted settlement of frozen green wax. With roads and buildings carefully arranged in intricate patterns incomprehensible to all single-brained beings, the very prescence of this Swunatlesc town bewilders and discombobulates all invaders who wish the bizzare cylindrical creatures harm. Every single architectural nuance in Piv Flidij - the angle at which roof terraces lean, the exact position and shape of every building, the shapes of pavement stones, - are designed to lead would-be intruders in circles. Only Swunatlesc can properly locate the town, and merchants and visitors are only permitted when the constellations are in the right positions.
At a glance, Piv Flidij is a collection of hundreds of eight-meter tall green prisms of various shapes, from dodecahedrons to triangles, which often overlap in the

The empire below the ice
I’ve spent the last three or days so skulking across this flat plane of ice. No bumps, no slopes, no cracks, nothing at all here. I don’t even think there’s snow. Speaking of snow, there are no clouds whatsoever in the sky. Only an endless plane of star-speckled, dizzying blackness above an infinite expanse of white. With me in the middle, of course. A little brown dot in the middle of all of it, huddling my longcoat in the middle, just trudging along. I don’t think i can feel my feet. Or my hands. I think it might be because i ate my boots and my gloves long ago, which made me feel a little warmer. On good days, i might find a little puddle of water breaking the endless ice, from which i slurp enthusiastically from. Whoever’s reading this, congratulations. Either you’ve taken the effort to read a little piece of tusk that’s been scribbled on by someone you don’t know, or you might have found this little bit of bone accident, which may se

The land of chimneys
On the planet Siagaunthl there is a rather peculiar rocky wasteland that experiences a profuse amount of volcanic activity - a mostly flat, although craggy rocky land dotted with numerous vents that belch forth hot currents of smoke from the bowels of the planet. The vents are as tall and wide as a man, and the heat they produce is unbearable. In primeval times they were once hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the sea, although come the Ebbing and they are now waterless save for the boiling saline puddle here and there, and the towering stromatolites that loom above.
Monstrous gorges stretch across this region, from where lava flows. Hideous protoplasmic things shamble amid the forboding rock chimneys. Extremophilic creatures slither and crawl across the thin gray crust of the earth, laying their eggs within algae-choked puddles. Here the crust of this particular celestial sphere is considerably thinner than the rest of it, meaning that the former hydrothermic vents do not reach down

The Fried Forest
West of the Sotrocho Forest is a saturnine woodland of skeletal, ashen cedars that were once as alive ad their eastern cousins. A grey shroud of smoky mist permanently looms over it, where pale bats and moths flutter about and hang from the burnt trees. Absolutely useless are these worthless woods, for no phlogiston lies within, and the timber collapses with a single tug or push. The enormous earwigs and horse-sized wasps of the hostile, tar-stinking Sotrocho avoid this pallid, lifeless place, as do the hardy Tragemnortéan rangers and frontiersmen that dwell in the hardy outposts wrought of generously applicated mortared boulders.
Seldom are these dismal woods trod into, for all who draw near to this place are struck with great feelings of dread and melancholy beneath the low cloud of simmering ash that hovers a fathom above the treetops. The entire woodland looks the same and no bush or shrub ever grows in the sandy soil. Not a single creature roams here, save for the great cadav

The High Country
The High Country is a shallow island that floats some fifty meters above the Kingdom of Galimore. Watered by clouds, the many deciduous trees of this flying island are observed from below as a tangled of roots dangling down. Their roots have adapted  to catch and absorb the morning dew with their expansive surface area. The upper surface of The High Country is an idyllic glade, interspersed by bright ponds occasionally strewn with elm leaves. It is essentially a pristine sylvan woodland that floats in the skies. Its surface area is about thirty kilometers, and in the middle is a hill where stands a castle defended by looming white towers roofed by glittering cobaltite blue tiles. One tower in particular is not roofed by anything, instead it is topped by a large wooden platform, where visitors may land any sort of windbourne conveyance, as long as it accords to the wishes and terms of the Duke of the High Country.
The Duke is recognized by the kingdom as an official nobleman since
