Rise the Ancient Storm
Rathis is the world in which Rise the Ancient Storm is set. Climate and physical rules are analogous to common D&D worlds.
Geography of Rathis
Rathis has three major continents; Avre, Mannin, and Doth. Avre is the northernmost continent, and is connected to Mannin by a narrow isthmus. To the east of both, across the Reveni Ocean and south of the Indranani Sea is the smaller continent of Doth. East of Doth and west of Mannin and Avre is the Rascion Ocean.
Races in Rathis
Rathis is a human-dominated world. Other core D&D races are present, but most live in small settlements distant from the human cities, or hail from the Ether Veil (Faewild). A hardy collection of elves, half-elves, tieflings, and humans co-exist in the far north of Avre, making up the wild tribes there. Dragonborn are highly uncommon and viewed with wary suspicion.
