I figured it would be useful to start writing a general thread for providing informations regarding the 'Daina-universe'.
'Daina' is the name of the continent several of my newer storys take place. Namely TDC, Bronze Bonds and The Shadow Warden (and probably a few more to follow).
If you intend to write short novels, it's quite useful to have a common geography/locations/races avaible, permitting you to write away without re-explaining everything again and again.
You're free to ask any questions regarding the background of said 'world' in this thread. I'll as well link relevant storys / novels here (intending to write a full description of Daiana, disguised as a short novel about a 'dragons day in history class').
For now, I'll simply write down a couple of useful notes.
Beginning with the basics: Daina is a large continent, of roughly circular shape. Usually all novels take place in-land and you will barely find any ocean mentioned. Exception is the mentioning of the 'Large Sea' seperating Daina from Serpia (origin continent of dragons, location 'Darakeyn' was built in, world a few of my older novels take place).
The North of Daina is made up by a long line of mountains, accompanied by vast hills, mixed with a few lakes and woods. The East consists of a mix based around grassland, plains, rivers and light forests. Towards the South, the forests become more and more dense, finally forming a large jungle and rainforest. The western regions tend to be slightly more dry, consisting of plains and mountains. Important node: The middle of Daina consists of a large region similar to a desert. Some parts of it are actual sand deserts, some others just very dry plains. Commonly referred to as 'the deserts'.
