Due to the confusion brought on by some terms and words used in Enervation, this glossary should clear up any Confusion.

THE GLOSSARY-

Shorn-The light, Lord of all that is Brilliant, banished to far reaches of reality, wages eternal battle against...

Sinera-The Dark, Mistress of Shadow, banisher of Shorn, battles him eternally, creator of...

Shaza- the world where Enervation takes place

Maalas-the largest continent on Shaza, home to countless humans, sun elfs (kharxena), silver dwarfs and other creatures.

Ziniria- the Island capital of the ancient Zinirian empire of humans.

Zin- the island that contains Ziniria

Sol Orb- a creation of Shorn to banish the shadow from Shaza. Shines on Shaza for 12 hours a day then rests for 12 more, its dim radiance then blocked by Siness, a moon that orbits Shaza and gives off a pale blue radiance. The Sol Orb shines on only one side of Shaza, known as Sol Side.

Shade Side- the side of Shaza that is hidden from the Sol Orb, a place of perpetual night, off set only by the twinkling of stars and the pale blue radiance of Siness. When Siness is orbiting Shaza on the shade side, it is known as False Night, and when it is on Sol Side, it is known as True Night.

Nyxia- forgotten ruins of the Nyxians capital, now inhabited by shadowy nightmares and ghosts. Said to be the darkest place on Shaza. Also said to have walls of solid gold.

Kharxena- Sun elves, corrupted (from a Sinners PoV), or blessed (from a Solars PoV) creatures that hold within each of them a fraction of the Shorns power. Brilliant in thought and Action.

Nyxians- Children of Sinera, the first race to inhabit Shaza. Tall, black skinned, genius humanoids. Nearly wiped out during the Kharxenian invasion (Shadows' Sundering).

Solar- follower of Lord Light.

Sinner- follower of Sinera

Note-There are many other gods and goddesses of Shaza, and a creature may worship any one. The choice of Shorn or Sinera is more of a philosophical choice than a religious one as each carries their own beliefs on the general state of things.

2nd Note- Sinera and Shorn may also be worshiped, but they are said to be done so only through action and not prayer.

Sar-holes in the void of space where Shorn has broken through (stars)

Oh good, all's clear then.

Just one last question for 'Sar': those holes are holes in Sinera's darkness, I take - that's what I got from reading the Song of Creation, at least - and not just holes in 'the void of space'? Very Happy

The Void of space is Sineras' darkness. She banished the light to the far reaches of reality and thus the emptiness of space was created. Space, or the void, is in a sense Sinera herself, as she is all darkness and shadow. So Sar would be holes in Sineras darkness, which is space.

The cosmic being of Sinera is the void, and the Shorn is all things of light. They are more a force than an actual material being.
