Age of Aventus
Theros is a plane governed by the gods of Nyx, where heroes face monsters, the sea rages, people offer burnt offerings and adventures take place. It is defined by mankind’s struggle against the primal forces of the world, and mankind’s conflict with the many other sapient races that populate the world.
Theros is divided into three main realms:
- The normal, sunlit world of the living.
- Nyx: A paranormal realm associated with dreams and the subconscious, a literal and proverbial nightsky where the gods dwell. Dreams are seen as gifts from the gods due to their connection with this realm; whenever mortals sleep, they are said to be “visiting Nyx”. Tales of the gods can bee seen played out in the constellations.
- The Underworld: A subterranean realm beneath the “Rivers That Ring The World”, where the dead end up and dwell. It is governed by the god Avernus, cast into the place by a frightened and paranoid Heliod after his birth. Although the Underworld is dark, it is ironically not connected to Nyx, as it lacks the night as much as it lacks the Sun.
