Geography

Main Article: Locations
Daztrudia
Daztrudia is a landmass ruled by humans. The Holy Kingdom of Alleius and Kingdom of Analeit are there, separated from Kasanagara by the sea. One must traverse the Upper Stratum the Great Elroe Labyrinth to get to Kasanagara due to the aggressiveness of the Water Dragons.
Kasanagara
Kasanagara is the continent most of the story takes place on. It is split into three main countries: the Demon Realm to the north, Renxandt Empire directly south of the Demon Realm, and Sariella to the far south of the continent. Between the Renxandt Empire and Sariella is a wasteland, and then many smaller human countries, akin to city-states. The Mystic Mountains form a natural border between the Demon Realm and Renxandt Empire on their western border, and is regarded as just as dangerous as the Great Elroe Labyrinth due to the harsh terrain and dangerous monsters.

Religion

Main Article: Religion

There are two main religions, the Goddess Religion and the Word of God religion. Most of the world follows the Word of God religion which encourages its members to raise skills in order to hear the voice of God. It also has it's own small kingdom and is lead by a Pope who is always, once appointed, named after Dustin, its founder. The current pope is Dustin LXI.

The Goddess Religion preaches worship of the Goddess of old, and is mainly practiced by the country of Sariella. Some of the smaller countries to the north of Sariella also practice the Goddess Religion.
