A Shifting of Planes
Geography and Culture
The land of Aris is home to a variety of civilizations and cultures, most of which are connected by a network of runic portals. These portals are maintained by the Guild of Magisters, who charge a high premium for their use and so travel by sea is still quite prevalent. Among sailors the worship of The Wadatsumi is commonplace and so most ships travel with a storm-caller to sing to it should it's whale form show up.
