    I mean, air elementals and water elementals have been having a race war for awhile......

    One might get the idea that the Solars of the First Age had some form of bizarre eversion fetish

    replied to How common are Beastmen in the West?
    Boarfolk I believe. There are countless tribes of beastmen IIRC, but only those three are really prominent

    I always imagined the Labyrinth as shout-out to ancient cthonic practices that saw caves as an entrance to the underworld. Those who traverse it can gain great power and a twisted form of enlightenment, but only by partaking of the abyss and resolving it's themes with themselves(whether that's turning into a gibbering lunatic or getting really zen should be up to the individual). If anyone has read The Second Apocalypse series by R.S. Bakker, the Holy Deep of the Nonmen is pretty close to what i'm thinking of.

    Oh, for sure, but in terms of being an eldritch cthonic realm inhabited by transhuman and never-were-human ghosts that laughs at the normal constraints of space-time and has a tendency to drive things insane, it'll be the same as previous editions

    The Labyrinth will probably be unchanged(except for maybe the House of Bitter Tears), and some of the more unique Underworld kingdoms, like the one with two queens who swap places with the seasons, as neither of those particularly map to anything in Creation

    Also, the Sea of Mind that the Forest Witches use, though whether that's an actual plane of existence or one big consensual hallucination is up for debate. The Forest of Oreythia itself is weird enough to to qualify as a pseudo wyld zone/shadowland(in that its a part of Creation where reality doesn't work as it should)

    Back to other realms of existence: FA solars also made a bunch of pocket dimensions stored in their artifacts. There's one in 3e inside of a soulsteel mace containing the soul of a dead sorcerer who you can bargain with for information.

    Oramus has his conceptual "Beyond" and arguably each of the Yozis is a pocket dimension in and of themselves. The Well of Udr was connected to both Oblivion and the conceptual space where worlds that never were crash against each other. When the Silver Chair and Daystar were still a thing, they were basically miniature worlds (moreso in...

    Well, the Nameless Lair and Ma-Ha-Suchi are still around, just toned down to something tolerable

    TW: RAPE

    Ok, now that that's out of the way, the Nameless Lair is the Elder Lunar Warlord Ma-Ha-Suchi's base of operations throughout the editions. In 1e-2e, he was a psychotic, wyld warped luddite with an irrational hatred of beauty and civilization. The Nameless Lair was a first age manse complex that contained an artificial Wyld Zone called the Rutting Pens, where he would keep captive men and women that he would systematically rape or have raped in order to produce wolf/goat beastmen offspring. He would then indoctrinate the beastmen into his insane social darwinist philosophy,...

    Yeah, though its appearance as a Scorpion specifically is used as a symbol by the Church of Balor(according to an old Vance post), and makes me wonder if the Scorpion Empire has some reverence for or connection to Nishkriya in its Ishiika aspect...

    There's also the Comet Gnosis, which may be one of Gaia'sThird Circle Devas but might be a pocket realm she made to traverse the Wyld more easily(it might be where Yatani's Children are from).

    Though exactly what the Scorpion Empire is is a bit hazy. Masters of Jade implies that they're not Raksha, but the whole "scorpion" thing is reminiscent of Ishiika (Balor's weirdass scorpion sword). It might be a weird Freehold, though I'm leaning towards something else. 3e also has pockets of semi-stable Creation out in the Wyld, one is ruled by an Asura-like behemoth who used to hold up the sky way back when the Primoridals were making Creation

    Perhaps not for the Blessed Isle itself, but for nearby Satrapies and kingdoms. Since the Lap's tribute is in foodstuffs, I wouldn't be surprised if the Thousand Scales redirected a lot of it to other places in the South. 2e Chiaroscuro had agriculture issues due to Delzhan resistance to developing farmland (since it'd interfere with nomadic ranchers) and a lack of major fresh water sources outside of First Age desalination manses(which only put out enough water for the city and some of the nearby hinterlands). Nothing useful grows near Gem and Harborhead's inter-ethnic raiding depletes food ...
