what makes Catara unique - dominant features of the world
  • Catara is a world with a few dominant features:

    The Arrival of the Gods
    The “Cult of the Nine”
    The Travel Phenomenons

    1. The Arrival of the Gods
    About a thousand years ago, or so the elves tell, the gods arrived on Catar. Suddenly they were there, wandering the world, doing miracles, and attracting worship. Although the elder elves have detailled records of a time predating the gods, most shorter lived races (ie: everyone else) dismisses this as a myth the elves spread to claim superiority.
    2. The “Cult of the Nine”
    Nearly half of the human population of Catar refuses the worship the gods. They acknowledge their presence and their power, but they do not pray to them, visit their temples, or do anything that amounts to worship.
    Instead, they cluster around 9 empty altars, celebrating their independence of the gods.
    3. The Travel Phenomenons
    Every so often a huge ball of lightning speeds across the land. Creatures who stand in it’s way are taken up with it, and more or less instantiously reappear at an entirely different location. So far, no one can say why this happens, or has been able to predict these things.

Howdy, Stranger!
