Also called the Holy Land: Erithstat is a massive desert with few exports outside of drugs, sand, and the religious worship of Vorenclee; the island’s core heart. While Erithstat is mostly uninhabitable wasteland, there are a few oasis’s that appear to lucky travelers through the dessert. Communities around Erithstat are specifically constructed around sources of water more then any other factor. Rain only comes once every 6 months, and it’s arrival is an event to celebrate hedonistically. Erithstat is mostly flat sand, as no wind actually passes through it to create dunes. Cactuses are a common sight, and they make up 90% of the island’s plant life. The sun is your worst enemy on Erithstat. There being next to no shade in Erithstat’s desserts, the sun will literally bake you alive. Most modes of transportation specifically incorporate shade because of this. The people of Erithstat are called Erithstiens. Most Erithstiens worship Vorenclee, their core heart as if she was a god. Most try to spread this belief by leaving their homeland, and preaching her name to ad nauseam. For this reason, most other people can’t stand Erithstiens. Surprisingly, the clergy of Vorenclee is actually very diverse on the moral scale. Some are good, some are evil, and some don’t care either way.
Core Heart: Vorenclee- Vorenclee is a selfish, manipulative, angry, spiteful sudo-god who is neutral evil to the core. She truly cares little for the people who live on her island, she barely gives a rat’s ass about her followers as well. Vorenclee believes she is the reincarnation of Clash’s One True god, and that by spreading her name out and acquiring as many followers as possible, she will be able to emerge as a True deity, capable of keeping all the islands aloft by herself. She is more then willing to lie, cheat and steal from her followers as well as the other Core Hearts to achieve her ends. She is usually depicted as a beautiful human woman with a glimmering Obsidian Scythe, her trademark weapon.
