The Omens of Talum-Kai
Hester is the Southern Continent in this world. Its sister, Thraeshae, is the Northern Continent.
The two are often depicted as two maidens, one of black hair one of white, holding hands and often feature in the folktales and mythology of the world. Some religions of the land even revere them as the creators of the universe, but many other see them as simply symbols of their incredible, beautiful and ever changing world.
Hester is the wilder of the two continents, but less diverse in its landscape. The Half Fang Mountains continue their journey south, separating Hester into Eastern and western regions but both, with the exception of the Drugnun Marshlands in the east, are defined by their vast and seemingly endless pine forests filled with seemingly endless assortments of animals and monsters. Few have ever truly gone deep into the White Forest that borders Hester's largest city, Hevestel. Even fewer have returned alive.
