Arvandor — Olympus

Arborea — Layer the First

The EverForest, The Mountain of the Gods

The layer of Arvandor (to the elves) or Olympus (to the Greeks) is one of plains and mountains, forests and savannah, valley and sea. Everything here is larger than life, emotions and coloured amped up to the next level. It’s the plane of Heroic Quests of the Olympians, and the Deep Magic of the ancient elves. It’s a place of meddling powers, of mythology written large, and timeless history interacting with the present. It’s the plane of epic stories written large.
