Welcome to Alteralla!
First stop- Esnen!
— Esnen is a grand country, having ownership over the most land in the world, rich with resources. Esnen itself has many beautiful cities, but none as grand as the home of the Royal Family, Lapsian. Lapsian has many famous landmarks, such as the Arch, the Hardened King (King Phillip the Second), and the tallest structure in the world, the Divine Palace, where the current Royale Family resides. There are daily tours conducted at most locations.

No one knows where the Arch came from. No citizens live within a 20 mile radius, and no one claims to have build it. Normally, a simple stone arch like this would be completely unnoticeable, but it brought attention to itself through its strange magic. 200 years ago, troops of the Divine army were passing through the land. At the time, the nation of Esnen, under the rule of King Phillip the Second, was moving troops towards Ospal to help quell a rebellion (the 3 Year Hold of Ospal). The troops came upon the arch, and initially dismissed it. However, it is reported that 2 different men had simply disappeared in thin air while walking through the Arch. The Arch, over a 100 period of study, has selectively taken different test subjects. Eventually, the Arch was deemed a danger to the crown and was destroyed. However, after a random check 2 months later, it was discovered that the Arch was rebuilt. The crown then used the Arch to eliminate criminals- if the Arch did not accept them, the criminals were then killed and buried nearby. However, this practice has since been disbanded by the current Queen Mariangela the First. The Arch, and the area surrounding it, has been deemed dangerous and has since been marked as so. The Arch has, officially, not been tampered with since then.

This would be the area of play for my main character since they can frolic with the cows and just bask in the sun. The building on the left is their cottage, with a small farm attached on the side. The building on the right is a barn, and there’s a large fence connecting all the buildings, where the cows graze inside.
