LUNAV Sneak Peak: Into the Flowing

Over on the tumbles, a wonderful and wonderfully curious Anon asked: "Can you tell us anymore of the 5 regions?"

And yes. Yes, indeed, I can. 

With LUNAV coming out (pun intended) in just a little over 4 months (!!!!!!!!!), I think it's time we learn a little bit more about it! So, here's how I answered on tumblr:

Oooh, such a wonderful question, about the 5 regions of the land of Lunav

Hmmmm, what should I divulge? ;)

A white enby with short, dark brown hair (me!!) strokes their chin, looking up and away in concentration. They are wearing a grey-green beanie and a grey sweater.

Let’s see. 

The Flowing! Let’s start with the Flowing. 

The Flowing is, in essence, the Lunavic ocean.

It lays between the other three regions (the Grove, the Samp, and the Highlands) and Izla. The Flowing has regions of its own, of course – just one example is Qathram, which is a semi-religious pilgrimage site for the dragons of Lunav.

Because the dragons of Lunav, you see, are both sea and air dragons.

With an enigmatic smile on her face, Zaylam walks on all fours with her wings extended above her body, her furry underbelly and strong, curvy tail drawing the eye just as Zaylam would want them to. Her eyes are big and bright, and the gentle spikes crowning her head match the small spikes that line her spine (fading smaller and smaller as they approach her tail). By LM.

Born with both wings and air bladders (basically, an organ that functions as a big sacks of air alongside their bellies, like a lot of bony fish have in our world!), dragons in Lunav spend a good portion of each year in the Flowing.

Fun fact: there may or may not be a prequel to LUNAV in existence that centers a lot of the narrative in the Flowing itself, specifically in Qathram, which is an intensely magical part of the Flowing just off the coast of Izla.

Shall I say more about the other regions?

Do you wanna know more about the Flowing?

Let me know, and maybe I’ll indulge ;)
