REGIONS

Altera is made up of three landmasses separated by large tracts of ocean. The landmasses are made up of isolated continents, and each one can be further divided into distinct regions.

EUROPEA

TYPES OF EXONYMS

NORTHWEST BOREALEA

Jutting out as a peninsula in the northwest portion of the continent of Borealea, Europea itself consists of a series of minor and major peninsulas, the abundance of coastline allowing for much of the region to be tempered by maritime winds and currents. Europea is a region of historically warring states, shifting borders, and innovative systems of governance. In ancient history, the region's cultural landscape was constantly reshaped by great migrations of peoples, sometimes resulting in abrupt demographic changes, though more often than not resulting in the emergence of new cultures through cultural assimilation. 

In search of better access to eastern spices, kingdoms in Europea launched the world into the Age of Exploration when the Iberian monarchs embraced the technology of oceangoing vessels from Libya and set sail for the far side of the world. Their unexpected discoveries led to the conquering, colonizing, and settling of distant lands, ultimately reshaping the world in drastic ways.

TYPES OF EXONYMS

SOUTHWEST BOREALEA

Being the cradle of the Neolithic Revolution, which saw hunter-gatherers transition to agrarian lifestyles, Asea is regarded as the birthplace of Western Civilization. It was here that alphabets and abjads were pioneered, and the region was also centre stage for the development of the Abrahamic religions, which have since engulfed more than half the world through proselytism, conquest and later, colonialism. 

 

For millenia, Asea was a nexus point where cultures, faiths, and ideas from far-flung corners of the landmass of Ecumina came into contact, and the region benefited from often being the focal point of empire-building. The dry subtropical climate of much of the region spurred the development of wind towers, complex underground canal systems, and advanced dredging techniques, allowing for the continued habitation of many great cities and populated plains, even through calamitous events such as the Mongol Invasions.
