Astran – as said in the Ontiba—is the home of the Deities or Ontautt. Astran is the largest Star-Planet in Omneutta and is located at the center. The light of its star-core lights Omneutta, while the rotating continents are the cause of the seasonal cycle for all Omneuttians.
Each Ontautt Deity has their own continent that reflects their elemental tendencies, as well as their attitude towards life. Quarrnyl‘s continent, for example has an abundance of flora and fauna – most of which cannot actually exist on a Star-Planet (especially of such magnitude). Each Deity has the ability to modified the detailed shape (not the general shape/size) of their continent, as well as anything on it at will – living or not. There is evidence of the Deities doing such in ancient times – according to the Ontiba, but it is unknown if they continue the practice in modernity.
The geography of Astran varies wildly from continent to continent as each deity is able to craft their continent at will as they see fit. This includes geographic features and living organisms, as well as weather phenomena that change change land over time.
The nine continents of Astran are large enough that they block the light reaching the rest of Omneutta and create seasons as Astran rotates around the year. The portion of Omneutta closest to Stagilos, Moryn Verap, and Ibauesc experiences fall or autumn, while the section closest to the central continent of Eupeaaurt experiences the peak of winter. Likewise, the section of Omneutta closes to Stottai, Verap Anatumuchis, and Paotaim experiences spring, and the rest of Omneutta not blocked from Astran’s light experiences summer.
All nine continents are inhospitable to mortals according to what research has been done by Omneuttians from a distance. Eight of the nine continents are said to be accessible by each deity that rules it—and only that deity. The continent in the center is known as Eupeaaurt and features the great hall of Ttimeaut, referenced in the Ontiba many times as the meeting place of the Eight. Beginning at the top with Aster’s continent and proceeding clockwise, the other eight continents are as follows: Aster’s Atalem (The Immortal Land), Extiru’s Stagilos (Arid Barrens), Davoto’s Moryn Verap (Deadlands), Haket’s Ibauesc (Gateways), Porrair’s Epytoriem (The Laboratory), Quarrnyl’s Paotaim (Realm of Purity), Sham’ayn’s Verap Anatumuchis (Temporarius), and Taruthe’s Stottai (Equilibrium).
