The Underearth realm of the Maedar and other dwellers of the deep places, this marvelous expanse of interconnected caverns is fraught with great peril but also filled with wild wonder.
Not all of Suternia is shrouded in darkness, nor is it necessarily cold. In many places, a strange moss, called Lumocilia (hair of light) grows (and glows) on cavern ceilings. It bonds with the roots of surface plants, feeds off their excess energy, and as a by-product, gives off light. Volcanoes from the farthest depths provide heat and pure air, called sweetair, and occasionally toxic fumes called fellair. These volcanic effects also bring steam and hot water, which is naturally filtered through the ground. Life thrives down here, but, as on the surface, monsters and other dangers may abound.

THE DENIZENS OF THE DEEP EARTH

⬆ Many strange creatures, malevolant and benign, dwell in the depths of Varzuun, in the region known as SUTERNIA. Among them are the Maedar, the Skryllar (the Deep Smolleks), the sinister Carponids and Seconids, protodragons, carrion crawlers, and the dreaded purple worms.

LOrds of Suternia

The Maedar are a race of strong underearth-dwelling peoples with a history mythically dating to the time of the Oublions, the Forgotten Ones. Many of the Maedar know intimately the caverns, tunnels and vast spaces of Suternia, the world beneath the world. Maedar culture is vibrant and complex; However, the Humans fear and mistrust the Maedar, having fought wars and skirmishes with them periodically through history. Many of the great ancient huge buildings and ruins throughout Varzuun that have been attributed to Cyclopean construction are in fact of Maedar craftsmanship. The Maedar mistrust and seldom ever use magic, but a talented few individuals are gifted with the arcane art of geomancy, the deep earth magic - and are reverently respected for it. Wace Pallahaxis is one such Maedar.

DESCENT INTO THE DEPTHS
OF THE EARTH

Underearth Staircase


Suternia is filled with, and connected by many natural and artificial passages. Natural ones include such things as lava tubes and underground rivers. Over millennia, the Maedar, and other denizens of the deep, have carved and constructed tunnels, halls, aqueducts, and many other structures, including, of course, staircases.
MAEDAR CONSTRUCTION
IN THE DEEP PLACES

Maedar Structure


Throughout all Suternia, one will find many artificial structures. Most were made by the Maedar. Great halls, temples and living spaces, some dating as far back as five thousand centuries, pepper the landscape. All are well-made and often superbly decorated. The few surface-dwellers who find their way down here are always impressed by Maedar craftsmanship and astounded to find the Maedar culture has such artisanship.
