Deathlands


Deathlands

There are lands that hold the moment of Death's embrace. The tiny space in between Life and the Afterlife. With magic being able to cross this line forward and back – there is a landscape that can hold souls for a while. Souls that are not yet ready to go on, or cling with Fate's potential of returning to Life, or even just souls lost and needing a moment before they cross over. This space is called the Deathlands.

It is home to the incarnation of Death herself. There is a huge crimson and crystal palace that holds her throne. It is also home to her son, Twyl – who has a series of compartments he can call his own. The souls who wait are manifested as grey people – often lost and self involved wander here.

Phoenix are counted as Death's birds, as she lets them slip in and out of her embrace. There is a place on her Palace roof where they nest and dance. The fire gives the crystal an interesting glow.
