A geographical overview

<img src='img://Textures/Interface/Books/Illuminated_Letters/d_letter.png' height='55' width='55'>This composition is an approximation. One would be impudent to claim that he knows Vyn in all its magnitude - there are too many white spots on the maps, too many sunken exploration vessels, too many island rising and sinking back with each century from the sea.
Ergo this is a compendium of all, that different geographer, philosopher and clerics of the civilized worlds have come to an agreement about.
The civilized and the godless world
Those continents under the rule of the Light-born are referred to as the civilized world. This includes Qyra, Arazeal, Nehrim, Enderal, the belt of Kilé, and, of course, Inodan, the domicile of the gods. In each of the first five named continents rules a Light-born, whose worship defines the culture of each country.
The known lands of the godless world however are the Skaragg-Islands, Melêe, since Zoras revolt Myar Aranath and since the battle of Tirmatral also Arktwend. While in the lands of the Light-born are dominated by peace and stability, the godless worlds are defined by anarchy, chaos and idol cults.
The elapsed and the red sea
The elapsed sea surrounds the continents of Myar Aranath and Arktwend, the Skaragg-Islands and the belt of Kilé. The southwest is tropical; but the rest of the sea is harsh and grey, which can be linked back to the magic contamination of Zora's war.
The red sea surrounds the continents of Nehrim, Qyra, Arazael and Enderal.
Lands of the civilized world
Although the values, lifeforms and philosophy are different, the lands of the civilized world are united by the rule of the gods. All citizens of the civilized world speak Inâl and are therefore able to communicate, however, the dialects and idioms differ from land to land.
Nehrim is located in the center of Vyn and is, together with Qyra one of the two biggest continents. It is separated into three regions: the subtropical Southrealm, which is ruled by an idol cult (the Temple of the Creator) and therefore part of the godless world, the mountainous, snowy Northrealm, and the moderate Middlerealm.
The light-born Erodan was worshipped in the North- and Middlerealm until his departure of this world.
The Northrealm divided itself 8225 a. St. through a malicious rebellion from the Middlerealm. Since then the two realms rage war against each other, while the Southrealm completely secluded itself. The Middlerealm is under the rule of Chancellor Barateon since 8202 a. St.
Lands of the godless world
Arktwend (originally Tirmatral) is an enormous continent west of Nehrim. Once an enigmatic realm under the rule of the light-born Tyr, it is since the most recent war in 8202 a. St. abandoned and is mainly inhabited by outlaws and grave robbers, living in the ruins and on the quest for fortune.
