“Before dawn of time, there was a swirling chaos of energies, in these energies patterns and rhythm arose and the Divine Races where born. At its home the energies are physical mold-able or thick floating gasses, but when leaking to our World it crystallize.”
The Astral is said to once have been part of The Void but something stirred it and motion began. Slowly growing to a cacophonic maelstrom suddenly sparking live in itself. Through time these sparks became the Divine Races now inhabiting the Astral and forming it into their likeness.
In 1196 Atallanti stepped into the Astral and was immediately lost so he wandered for a long time. Then he figured that he passed things he’d seen before but not due him wandering in circles. It was the Astral which swirled in a pattern, and the more he thought of it the more it seemed to fit. Through time he met some odd creatures seemingly sniffing him out or noticing his concentrated Aura Colour. Some he managed to escape others he bad to kill.
Over time he also made some interesting observations regarding how the leaks into our World worked, as it seemed their leak had manifested itself in Earthnodes at which the Boriac once had the Archaic: Heidel to erect Teleport Sites at. And these he could distinguish when they floated by, due their shape and Central and Outer Colours.
The Astral consist of energies, mostly in fluid or gassy state lingering in coloured mists or swirling maelstroms, but also when bound by strong-willed beings or by consistency in itself -in solid form! Moving around in the Astral sets the energies in motion as does any attempt of manipulating it, so if not careful the motion can multiply, creating unbalance and energetic vacuum.
The Astral can also be used as transportation using Astravel as one can step into the Astral through any activated Teleport Site, benefit from its swirling ‘op top’ of our World and in short time step out having traveled great distances here.
