This post used to provide general worldbuilding information about Elonth, but the worldbuilding has expanded greatly since then and this post became outdated. It is now repurposed as a basic character guide and chapter index. I am in the process of setting up a wiki to store worldbuilding information, but feel free to contact me on Discord to ask any questions you might have.
