“Omneuttian” is the term used to describe anyone that lives within the land of Omneutta. The term “Omneuttians” is a reference to what the eight Deities called themselves in their own language: Ontautt. The phrase “The Known Universe” is used with the implication that the Omneuttians acknowledge there may be parts of the universe on the fringe that they have not yet discovered and/or mapped.

Government

Main Article: OLAH

The government in Omneutta is an Ad-Hocracy- a government founded based on need. The OmneLata Ad-Hocracy (OLAH) operates from an unknown planet-star in order to ensure the relative safety and isolation of the council in order for the decisions not to be influenced by outside sources. The government is largely bureaucratic, run by a council of seven elders of the sentient species. Each of the seven sentient species chooses a representative in a way that each species chooses. Throughout time, the term of service varies and depends on the species and is usually a life term or at least a hundred years for consistency among decision makers.

Currency

Main Article: Lott

Lott is the official currency in use across all of The Known Universe. Manufactured by OLAH, estimates of the total Lott across Omneutta is around 178 trillion, with coinage ranging in value from 1-5,000. Manufacture of Lott by any entity other than OLAH is illegal and highly physically dangerous due to the location of the mines of the materials. Lott are two sided, unevenly shaped coins that are made out of a common, sturdy metal and covered with a thin layer of more valuable and rare materials.

Language

The language spoken across the universe is Omnel, a language that is equivalent to real-world English. This makes it canon to read the books with no translation needed. The sentient species all have their own languages that have been passed down and developed over generations. Most planet-stars, star-planets and locations in general are named in that species’ language. Most Omneuttians however, speak Omnel to each other.

Religion

Main Article: Religion

There is one singular over-arcing religion throughout Uatti, the religion that believes that the eight Deities created the known universe. Most individuals in all seven Sentient Species believe in the Deity creation, though each species has their own twist that often purports their own parent-Deity as being a central figure. There are also many denominations in each Species.

Technology

Technology across Omneutta varies, but advances in technology are largely made by the Poria. They were likely the first Sentient species to discover space travel, and are the most capable of metallurgy though they do not partake in aesthetic advances. Even though there is widespread access to space travel across the universe, there are many aspects in each Species’ society that lack technological improvement.

Sentient Species


Species Deity, Xiruen, Avotoc, Kettlah, Porria, Quarryn, Turath, Sha’an

The eight Sentient species refer to the normal seven Sentient species and the Deity race, the Ontautt. It is believed that Aster, the first Deity created the other seven Deities and then created the seven Sentient Species in their image.

Ontautt

Main Article: Ontautt

The Eight god-like beings that shape(d) the universe. They normally take on lanky figures with large heads while calm, but can also change forms depending on mood. The seven Sentient Species were created in the image of the Incarnate forms of the children of Aster, which are distinctive forms based on each Ontautt’s personality with the exception of Aster. The Wrath forms of each Ontautt also varies, again with the exception of Aster who is always in his “pure” form.

Xiruen

Main Article: Xiruen

Large, four-armed and perpetually angered beasts. No part of their stature is small save for their head and facial features. Their upper arms are smaller than their lower arms which adds to their constant frustration and necessitates awkward positioning of their bodies. Their skin is somewhere between orange and brown as well as crusty and they do have some hair/fur. They are the towering giants of Omneutta who live in desert like regions, finding homes in rock formations that bend towards the light of Astran.

Avotoc

Main Article: Avotoc

Short, skeleton like creatures whose heads are disproportionately large. Like skeletons, they are almost all white, though their bones have a slight blue tint. They are the grave keepers of the universe and are as such accustomed to death. Their bodies do not need to take in air and can travel through space or water without any additional equipment. They deal with emotions in extremes as if bipolar.

Kettlah

Main Article: Kettlah

Thin an lanky, Kettlah are often seen as emotionless. They have no facial features except for eyes and their hands can contort around and into any shape, making their body language hard to read. They have eight tendril like appendages on their backs and can use them to glide for distances. Kettlah’s also train in their culture to communicate with the dead. Many are golden in appearance though some can be more pale-yellow.

Poria

Main Article: Poria

Poria are beings whose body is essentially sentient lava. Their skin is hardened patches of lava around their body that float with the flow. They are very intelligent and refined, though not to the extent of snobbery. Almost all of their culture is metal that has been forged for heat resistance. As Poria are beings of heat, they can live closer to star-cores on planet-stars and even some star-planets where continents are further out.

Quarryn

Main Article: Quarryn

Quarryn are greenish-brown creatures whose rough skin sometimes resembles tree bark. They are highly dependent on a natural environment and rarely leave their home planet-stars. Some Quarryn are so in tune with their environment that they can coax the flora and terra to bend to their will. This process is how they make their homes on the insides of large trees.

Turath

Main Article: Turath

The Turath and the Sha’an are very similar, both having a mix of canine and feline like traits. Turath possess the ability to learn traits that are normally exclusive to other Sentient Species, such as the Quarryn’s coxing of nature. This is believed to be a gift from Aster for their well tempered behavior. Much of the civil service across Omneutta is comprised of Turath.

Sha’an

Main Article: Sha’an

The Sha’an and the Turath are very similar, both having a mix of canine and feline like traits. Sha’an however are the more ritualistic and shaman like of the two. Sha’an are notorious for playing tricks upon anyone unlucky and unsuspecting. They possess some innate black-magic though it takes time to develop. Through this magic, some are able to shape-shift into even other Sentient Species.

Regions


Regions Divine Forge, The Outcropping, Pale Shores, Vale Reef, Parallelium, Matriarch Grove, The Blade, The Hilt

There are eight main regions across Omneutta, controlled or comprising mainly of each Sentient Species. Beyond the furthest reaches of inhabited star-planets and planet-stars is the Unknown-Universe. There are also several large Dust Clouds scattered around Omneutta.

Space1AstranAstran-Space

Main Article: Divine Forge

Divine Forge is the space around Astran, where rare and valuable materials can be mined. Due to the proximity to the giant Star-Planet of Astran, even most of the Planet-Stars in this area are inhospitable. Travel through Astran-Space is not recommended and can damage most ships and passengers. It is very easy to identify Astran-Space due to Astran’s size and center position on all maps. Little of Divine Forge has been mapped on a surface level, though most if not all celestial bodies are accounted for.

Xiruen-SpaceSpace2Xiruen

Main Article: The Outcropping

The Outcropping can be identified not only by its shape, but also by the brown-orange colour that it is displayed with on most maps. Most continents on star-planets and planet-stars have a dry climate due to mostly consisting of open space and rock formations. Most of the liquid in a Xiruen-Space climate would be in the form of humidity inside structures, whether they are cave systems or the pillar like homes.

Avotoc-SpaceSpace3Avotoc

Main Article: Pale Shores

Avotoc-Space is close to Astran space for the most part and on some maps due to the colouring of both Astran- and Avotoc-Space can be hard to distinguish which is which. Avotoc-Space is characterized by four large star-planets in the middle. The climate of Pale Shores, like its inhabitants, is one of extremes; both white-sand beaches and glaciers can be found on the same continent. Large seas are abundant across Pale Shores as the culture is largely sea and space faring.

Kettlah-Space

Space4Kettlah

Main Article: Vale Reef

Kettlah-Space is a narrow band of Asterisms in between Xiruen- and Quarryn-Space. It is usually displayed as a golden colour on maps. Vale Reef is home to Kettlah, who live on top of rocks that are separated from their bases by large clouds of mist like vapor. Large flora dominate the bases of these mountains due to the heavy presence of liquid in the air. Like its inhabitants and their style, the terra of Vale Reef distinguishable and sleek which intimidates many on their first sighting.

Poria-SpaceSpace5Porria

Main Article: Parallelium

Parallelium is a large and expansive stretch of Star-Planets and Planet-Stars in between Astran- and Quarryn-Space as well as between Sha’an- and Kettlah-Space. Two behemoth Star-Planets cap each end of Parallelium and many other large star-planets fill the space in between. Home to the Poria, Parallelium often has metal, non-natural continents orbiting its star-planets and planet-stars. These metal continents are more sterile than their natural counterparts and as such are more favorable to hosting experiments.

Quarryn-SpaceSpace6Quarryn

Main Article: Matriarch Grove

Quarryn-Space is the furthest inhabited zones from Astran and is also the most dense. It is said that when rebuilding the universe from scratch, Quarrnyl started with the Matriarchal Grove and began building Star-Planets and Planet-Stars towards the other end of the universe, explaining why half of Omneutta is more heavily populated with celestial bodies than the other. Matriarchal Grove, as it’s name implies is heavily forested. Water is abundant and there is ample amount of both flora and fauna.

Turath-Space

Main Article: The Hilt

Space7Turath

The Hilt, as Turath-Space is only rarely referred to as has quite a variable climate. Being so far from Astran, there are few deserts and the climate on most star-planets and planet-stars is temperate with slight variations. Turath value both form and function in their buildings and their city-centres can be some of the most impressive in Omneutta.

Sha’an-SpaceSpace8Shaan

Main Article: The Blade

Sha’an-Space is loosely populated, as power struggle continuously envelopes The Sword year in and year out. The climate is temperate and similar to Turath-Space but its inhabitants do not prosper as the Turath do. Instead cities are built and left in shambles as power constantly changes hands.
