The Plains of Messus is a prairie region in the continent of Darsha. Located outside of Darsha's capitol city Messus, the Plains are full of farming villages and domesticated animals that provide food for the city-dwellers. Even though the Plains of Messus are considered a tame place, predators and herds of wild beasts still stalk the golden fields. The climate on the Plains is mild year round, with the odd season being more extreme than usual every few years.
These subzones may be claimed by packs!
The Silver Sea
In the farming district of the Plains of Messus, the Silver Sea is an expanse of shyl ranging as far as the eye can see.
City of Messus
Near the center of the Plains, the City of Messus dominates the horizon with its towering skyscrapers and enormous statues. Messus is a mecca for technological advancement as well as being a booming trade city. Since it attracts people from all over, the market district of Messus has an odd mix of futuristic and medieval technology. It isn't uncommon to see a group of car-sized airships flying meters over quald-drawn carts filled with goods from the plains. Its stunning white buildings and statues of the gods have given the city the nickname "The White City". Messus also makes use of a lake fed by the area's largest river to welcome trade ships to its docks.
This is an area where many rivers converge, creating a large expanse of shallow water, dotted with narrow islands.
Home to a massive river where Danuoc can often be glimpsed. Legend says the river runs so deep that it touches the core of the earth - the waters are indeed surprisingly lukewarm.
This area has the highest elevation in Messus - which isn't saying much, since these hills are fairly gentle. They hide the several canyons and crevasses within them - unwary travelers may stumble upon one the hard way as they tend to be obscured by wild wheat.
Domain Guardian: Danuoc
Danuoc is a minor goddess native to the rivers that runs through the Plains of Messus. Playful and energetic, she can sometimes be found racing boats up the river and helping fisherman herd fish into their traps. While generally a friendly goddess, Danuoc has a grisly appetite. In times of scant offerings, she has been known to snatch villagers from the riverside to make a meal out of them. Rarely, she will venture out of the water and prey upon herdbeasts.

"It's rare, but sometimes our wild brethren like to terrorize the villagers on the plains, and those of us with good heads on our shoulders get called in to take care of the problem. Learning how to handle them can be quite a feat... sort of makes fighting monsters not look so bad. Let's see how you handle yourself!"
