The Age of Ascension
The Worldstorm is an enormous cyclone that constantly circles much of the world. It comes screaming eastward out of the Endless Ocean and makes landfall on the southern continent of Kalay, slamming into the coast of Arbant at the peak of its ferocity. The storm loses some of its fury as it travels over central Kaladia and through Moddi but regains some of its strength as it leaves Kalay and turns north into the Inner Sea. It rages directly over the Islands of Trinabado before shifting westward and sweeping across the southern part of the continent of Ulbranok, lashing Tholantium, Kishrata, andNazrov. It brushes the very southern portions of Tarkos and Barantine and howls over the island of Thane, but leaves the rest of Guldara untouched. It continues westward back into Endless Ocean where it circles back south and east to repeat its path.
It takes the Worldstorm seventy-two days to complete each circle. Some of the lands touched by it are battered by ruthless winds and inundated with torrential rainfall, others feel much more mild effects but all of them are heavily impacted by the Worldstorm’s passing. The ecosystems touched by the storm are more lush, diverse, and vibrant. Plants, animals, and civilizations have become attuned to the cycles of the Worldstorm and most have shaped their lives around it.
Strange things precede, accompany, and trail the Worldstorm. Large winged creatures can be seen in the skies heralding its arrival and countless stories speak of mysterious creatures stalking the earth amidst the raging winds and driving rain. People have been known to change as the storm grows near, becoming crazed or even more lucid, only to revert to their normal form after it passes.
