The Universe Of Underrealm by NyxenAvenger The Universe Of Underrealm by NyxenAvenger
Overrealm- Before Midrealm and Underrealm there was Overrealm, the home of an ancient race of celestial beings known as the Se'ren. It was also the resting place for any benevolent mortal who lived a good life down in Underrealm. Overrealm is a gigantic paradise composed mostly of cloud-like terrain, with gigantic spires and cities resting on the tops of them. The Se'ren created it so that they could observe the universe and mould it into their own image, however the lands were fractured by dark powers during the Akaan Uprising, leaving chunks of their land scattered throughout the cosmos. Since then the lands have healed and the Se'ren still remain, observing the world of Midrealm for the time being (and creating new worlds in their spare time).

Midrealm- Before the Akaan Uprising that would consume all of Overrealm, the Se'ren in their image fleshed out a world that in their minds would be just as glorious as their kingdom. Thus came Midrealm, home to the mortals of flesh and blood. At first all began well with Midrealm with many of the populace dedicating their lives to the worship of the Se'ren, but the Akann Uprising soon happened and it affected Midrealm greatly. Chaos and disorder arose as Akann's rage seeped into the heart of Midrealm, permanently scarring the world with his corruption. For centuries dark times lay ahead for the populace of Midrealm, it would be long until they recovered from the damage dealt.

Today, Midrealm is a prosperous world albeit in total isolation from the Se'ren. The recent Age Of Industry gave rise to massive factories which dot certain parts of the world, consuming resources and churning products for the benefit of their populace which in turn consume those products. The scars of Akaan are still felt, as in impoverished areas cults worshipping Akaan and the demons of Underrealm are present, sacrificing people in bloody rituals for their dark gods.

Underrealm- The Pit, The Temple Of A Million Cries, Underrealm has a million names for every being in the universe. Built as a prison to punish the traitor Akaan, it has since then been the prison for any wicked mortal who has committed terrible crimes in the eyes of the Se'ren. It is home to many demons of all sorts, but most of all it is the place where Argus, Arnus and Acauldrus were born and raised in, helped by the twisted corruption seething in that place. Underrealm is a gigantic and vast cube-shaped world almost rivalling in size to Overrealm, the surface is dotting by black spikes and inside rivers of blood seep from it's pus filled walls. It is dreadful place that no mortal should bear witness to.

I love the parchment-like effect you did on this!

Why thanks very much! It was inspired from those old maps which have that yellowish 'ancient' colour to them, I wanted this pic to feel like it was drawn up in the days of old given the current lore in Underrealm.
