The Edges of the World are places where the sea ends in Innworld.
Background[edit | edit source]
Once in the past, there have been mighty [Captains] and fearless [Sailors] and [Travellers] who have attempted to find the edge of the known world. But out of every thousand ships that have dared to travel to the edge of the world, past Baleros and past Rhir, only one or two has ever come back; those that do scream of a blackness which the water pours into, a place where light does not exist. The end of the world.
The archipelago the islanders live on is the closest to the end of the world. They know not to sail too far in one direction, less they vanish forever.
Blighted waters from Rhir flow west and north towards the edge of the world. People from Rhir told the American Group that it is a great abyss from which no one returns. According to them, the world is flat, and you can sail right off it.
There are stories that sometimes something comes up from that place. Things that kill all they encounter and die slowly, if at all. One of those things has been A'ctelios Salash: “In an age before the Dragons ruled, something came from beyond the edge of the world. It must have destroyed nations.”
Wailant has a map of the world where the ends of the world are clearly marked on either end.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Because of the edge of the world, the inhabitants of Innworld believe that their world is flat.
