world we refer to as the Waking World, the Material Plane, the Physical
Realm, the Realm of Mortals, the Core of the Eye, is simply called Nym
by its inhabitants. It is the largest known world, and it sits at the
very center of Nym's Eye; the heart where the Worldsoul resides, and the
most important jewel in all of Nym's Eye. Nym is the joining of all
energies that exist in Nym's Eye, which feeds and nurtures the Worldsoul
to create and maintains the vast, majestic lands of this world, as well
as its inhabitants. In many respects Nym is the anchor that keeps the
entirety of Nym's Eye together and in place to its center.
The planet Nym was once a Worldshard from the Shard of Origin, which travelled through the Dark Beyond until it reached Nym's Sphere, where Sol set in motion its transformation into a living world. It is on Nym where mortals reside, and where the many events that shape them have occurred or will still occur here.
Nym has been the battlefield of
titans and gods, the cradle of life, and the safe-haven of its many,
many inhabitants. There is no other known world that supports as many
variations of climates, creatures and races as Nym does, or at least not in the local Worldsphere. Here a large
variety of different cultures, religions and general communities exist
together, although not always in peace and harmony.
Nym has seen its fair share of conflicts, wars and world-altering cataclysms. Each time Nym has faced annihilation, it has been saved by Creators or Wildgods, spirits or outsiders. The world has survived and been reborn plenty of times, although now it is said, come the Third Era, that Nym is near its end yet again, and this time it will be the last end of all.
