* TheKingdom: While it's not wholly good, it's not evil either and this fits more than anything else.

* AncientTomb: What the heart of [[http://mopomoko.deviantart.com/art/RC-Baal-Draresh-Moor-430925816 Baal Draresh Moor]] can be considered to be.



* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: Part of the reason Inferio was able to strike a blow against the Sun and Moon in the first place. For every follower he gained, their power waned. Now ''Inferio'' needs more followers--this time [[Orphean Rescue to bust out of]] TheUnderworld.
* HeroicFantasy: The world's somewhere between this and LowFantasy.

to:

* EasilyConqueredWorld: The other regions of Noverra. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in-universe in that after the war, most of the world was wiped out and any infrastructure that would've been in place vanished.
* FiveRaces / FantasyAxisOfEvil: Since the setting [[WhiteAndGreyMorality isn't exactly black and white]], there are no "good" or "evil" races. Different races do have different dispositions to certain [[CharacterAlignment Character Alignments]], though, and each race has its own natural attunement to different deities' magic. There are:
** [[HumansAreAverage Humans]], who are not instinctively aligned with any type of magic.
** [[OurElvesAreBetter Elves]], are a pretty magical species and are naturally talented at sun and moon magic.
** [[OurElvesAreBetter Drow]], who are most talented at moon and dark magic.
** [[PlantPerson Dryads]], who are [[OneGenderRace an all-female race]] exceptionally gifted with sun magic.
** [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Goblins]], who aren't all that magical but are best at dark magic.
** [[LittleBitBeastly Beastmen]], who can be pretty magical but whose alignment depends on their spirit animal.
** [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwarves]], who are not at all magical. At all.
** [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Mermaids]], who are best at lunar magic but [[ImAHumanitarian will probably try to eat you]].
** Finally, [[BirdPeople Avisians]], who are a DyingRace that were formerly the messengers and warriors of the gods.
* FunctionalMagic: All magic comes from the gods and is split according to deity. There's [[SolarAndLunar sun magic from the goddess Orianna, moon magic from the god Lucise]], and [[TheDarkArts dark]]/[[CastingAShadow shadow]] magic which come from Inferio. [[http://rising-crowns.deviantart.com/journal/Magic-293988559 The system's more complicated than that]], but that's its basis.
* HomeOfMonsters: Again, Baal Draresh Moor.
* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: Part of the reason Inferio was able to strike a blow against the Sun and Moon in the first place. For every follower he gained, their power waned. Now ''Inferio'' needs more followers--this time [[Orphean Rescue [[OrpheanRescue to bust out of]] TheUnderworld.

* StandardFantasySetting: Noverra's got some of the ingredients.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Utopia}}: What the world before Inferio is commonly believed to have been.
* WhiteAndGreyMorality: There's no absolute "good" or "evil" but by and large the setting and characters present aren't terrible, though it varies on where you are.

[[folder:The Aomori Empire]]
* GhibliHills
* TheKingdom: While it's not wholly good, it's not evil either and this fits more than anything else.
* MerchantCity: Aomori runs on trade and its capital, the Sea Lotus Haven, is the heart of it all.
*RedLightDistrict: And man is business booming.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* StandardRoyalCourt: More closely embodies this than Karsh does, but the imperial court is pretty out of focus.
* TreeTopTown: One of Aomori's settlements, the Shirobashi Village, is this.
* Veganopia: Kind of? The Empress is a dryad and PlantPeople make up a hefty chunk of the population. They can't eat meat or dairy, but there's no taboo preventing other citizens from doing so.
* {{Wutai}}
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Eternal Goblin Empire of Karsh]]
* BoomTown. Damn do goblins work fast.
* CityOfAdventure: Any Karshan town.
* CityOfSpies: Yep.
* TheCityNarrows: All of the Fissure, Karsh's capital. All of it.
* TheEmpire: Falls somewhere between this and TheHorde.
* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Yeah.
* {{Steampunk}}: Has shades of this. Karsh is heavily slanted towards industrialization, so it's natural.
* TreasureRoom: It's where the first emperor, [[MeaningfulName]] "Grabby" Goldpaw !, died. It's most commonly believed [[DeathByMaterialism he was crushed to death by a mountain of gold]].
* TunnelNetwork: The Fissure, in spades.
* UndergroundCity: Karsh is ''really'' fond of these.
* WretchedHive: Gloriously so.

* TimeSkip: A standard feature. Though on a day-to-day basis the story operates in RealTime, every 6 months there's a 6-year jump into the future. By the time one year's passed in real life, 12 additional years have been added in-universe.
* TheUnderworld: It's not neutral, like most of this trope's incarnations, but it's not {{Hell}} either. Rather than a place that actively causes pain and suffering, it's a place utterly devoid without light or purity; living creatures that stay there slowly become [[TheCorruption corrupted]] over time. Inferio's trapped there, and [[OurDemonsAreDifferent it's also where demons come from]]. It's not a very nice place.





[[CreationMyth Eons ago]], the young world of Noverra was a bare and lifeless place until the two gods, [[SolarAndLunar the Sun and the Moon]], gave it life. Their creations worshipped them wholeheartedly and spent their lives in [[{{Utopia}} a peaceful world]]--but nothing perfect lasts forever. The gods became jealous of their own creation, and descended from the heavens to feel what mortals felt: life. [[GodInHumanForm They masked themselves in mortal skin]] and attempted to live normal lives among their followers.

The goddess of the Sun, Orianna, even bore a child: Inferio, the son to a human man. [[DivineParentage Being a demigod]], he inherited his mothers gifts and the gods' disguises were revealed. They had no choice but to ascend back to whence they came, but the child could not follow; he was half man, and only gods could enter that sacred realm. He was cared for, honored as a king, but as he aged, his dissatisfaction grew. He desired something [[PerfectPacifistPeople all other men before him]] never thought of in their perfect world: [[OrderVersusChaos Chaos]]. Though he was cast off by the gods' followers for denying their will, he was not alone.

His followers grew, [[ChaosIsEvil and with them the first taint the world had ever seen]]. Sin spread across the land along with his army, [[RageAgainstTheHeavens as they waged war against the heavens themselves]] and devastated the once-peaceful land. Inferio, after being weakened, was successfully sealed into TheUnderworld. However the damage had been done, [[ApocalypseHow and civilization was all but destroyed]].

[[DistantPrologue That's history]][[TakeOurWordForIt as it's usually told, anyway.]] Fast forward [[OffscreenRebuilding 500-odd years of slow, painstaking healing]] and the seeds of civilization have taken root in a sheltered archipelago tucked away in the corner of the world: the Orsa Isles.
