The Light Realm is a shimmering, bright Realm that's plants, animals, soil and stone all glow with an inner light. Its sun is a cool white where the sky is a pale gold, stars twinkling in its vast expanse even in the daytime. At night, these stars are much brighter, twinkling in a field of shifting purples and blues, where the dawn is met with a bright magenta radiance.
Bordered by the mountains and holding the Gods' Tower in its midst, the Light Realm is governed by the Council of Three in the Golden North, entrusted with the guidance and foresight of the gods. The Dark Five and their allies have no power here, and the aura of the northern Realm is said to purify evil souls.
APPEARANCE: The Gods' Tower is a massive arrangement of eleven towers, ten arranged in a vast circle around a larger central tower. The ten outer towers are each dedicated to one of the Ten; the Five of Felnova, and the Five of Millirand, while the central tower is dedicated to the One. The towers are made of a gleaming white stone which glows with an ethereal beauty. The gates are each lined with gleaming gold, and large enough to accommodate even the largest Orthae. At the top of the central tower, statues of the Ten stand in a circle, their assorted colors a bold contrast to the gleaming white stone. These statues all look downwards, where a shimmering pool of water lay, a window into other Realms.
The Tower of the Gods is one led by a three-pronged Council governed by the gods. This Council is comprised of three ancient and powerful Lightbeasts, who keep a careful watch over the balances of the worlds.
APPEARANCE: Highland Tower takes the form of a single tower, towering high into the air, over-topping the other towers by a fair margin. Ten large balconies wrap around the exterior, and the tower section above is slightly smaller than the section below each balcony, giving the tower a tapering appearance. The stones shimmer brightly, gathering the light of the Realm and absorbing the radiance of the sun, stars and moon. It shines as a beacon at night, and its bright walls can even be seen over great distances in the daytime.
APPEARANCE: The Platinum Throne is comprised of three smaller towers conjoined to a massive central tower, each serving as a gatehouse dedicated to one of three Spirit Kings. A muted gold arch marks the Ghost Gate, pure white for the Soul Gate, and silver subtly tinged with red for Hell Gate. The central tower houses the Platinum Throne itself, a gleaming construction forged from pure platinum. While it still stands strong, parts of this tower have crumbled, and a subtle, melancholy shade of blue almost lost within its original white, marks its outer walls. The Throne itself is dedicated to the Highlord, Spirit King of the Highrealm, where he may gather the other Kings in meetings of great importance.
