The Crystal Vales is a large, sprawling area with grand and gorgeous landscapes stretching out as far as the eye can see. Magic is a fairly common staple in most corners of the land, though its natural density does vary by region. Some areas are high in unnatural magical phenomena and fantasy creatures, while others are far more grounded in reality where magic is an increasingly rare sight.
Cascade Bay is one of the region's largest cities. It is located directly on the coast, where a majority of the city's commerce stems from. The city spreads out from the cliff-tops, sprawling down the cliffs themselves and then out over the open ocean, with docks and bridges connecting dozens of tiny islands that dot the coast.
A school for the preternaturally gifted, Schola Praeditos is located on one of the larger floating islands in the Severed Haven. Making use of an old castle-mansion which has been refurbished into a functional school, it houses gifted individuals of all sorts, from wizards to mutants to supernatural creatures who are interested in learning in a safe, comfortable, and welcoming environment for all of their kinds.
