What is the Imagience? The wold in which The Imagient King book series takes place. Is it a world? A planet? Well, not really, and in this blog post I hope to explain what exactly is The Imagience.
Most fantasy books are set in fictitious worlds much like our own, a reflection of society, but The Imagient King is placed in a somewhat different universe and a somewhat different type of world. In fact it isn't a world or a planet, but rather a spacial plane in between two different universes.
The Imagience was created by the mianthi or some say by an elder race much older than the mianthi as a spacial distortion between the Computus Galaxy and the Imagined Realm. This connects the Imagience with my greater world building or rather universe building aspect. The Computus Galaxy is where most of my other stories will take place, and I might make a blog post about that later. However, for simplicity sake in today's post I will limit it to the Imagience itself. The only thing you will have to know about the Imagined Realm is that in it exists every story or idea ever imagined. So all of your fan-fictions go there.
The mianthi were the first settlers to the Imagience, they fled to the Imagience eons ago during the 'Great Flight of the Elves' a world changing event that occurred in the Computus millions of years ago. This sent the various elven families diverging into their modern variations, the mianthi were one of these variations and they made this their home.
The mianthi would routinely expand the Imagience with giant spacial distortion pillars imbued with their power made from Imagicite. The pillars are what both keep the Imagience intact, but also stabilize it so it doesn't collapse. For all intense and purposes, the Imagience shouldn't exist as it is a spacial distortion between two different universes it is on the periphery of a multitude of physics breaking calamity, the only thing that stops the Imagience from being ripped apart is those pillars.
It is unknown if the mianthi terraformed the area or if it was already terraformed. There exists the main continent and various islands. It isn't that people haven't tried to explore beyond the ocean boundaries they have, but once they get to the boundaries there are literally a spacial distortion of walls. The sun is one of the suns of a somewhat near solar system. The moon really isn'ta moon, but a floating piece of spacial debri. The Imagience is a lie, and nobody not even miathi know this.
Historically there have been various miathi kingdoms and empires, but most of those are not important to the story of The Imagient King. The first one that might be mentioned is Loranthil which was the first kingdom that Taisho Taika defeated when he and his Imagient horde arrived to the Imagience. It was here at the Battle of Galdrewa'weol that the history of the Imagience was forever changed. The Imagients would shape the history of the Imagience, and eventually get to the events of The Imagient King.
