Ranuncul is a level 5 Quotum-based, psychic realm within the Thon Iridescence.

Background[edit | edit source]

Ranuncul is a place where the skies are always dim and hazy, illuminated by the occasional flash of green lightning and the land is just a sphere of cracked, grey stone with fissures that seem bottomless. From these faults sound the echoes of cries from tortured souls. Anyone caught within this realm is immediately struck with a feeling of dread, strong enough to drive someone mad if they too long. Ranuncul has also been known to infect the other psychic realms of Thon, whether it be through an escaped construct or merely through leakage via dimensional superficies. Even the infamous nepenths, for whatever reason, try to stay far away from this place.[1]

The Crypt[edit | edit source]

The dreaded core of Ranuncul is known simply as the Crypt, where continually-spawning, monstrous creatures linger. There, they fight to the death with the echoes of their battles rising through the cracks to the surface. Sometimes, a combatant from down below will make its way up to the surface and find their way outside of the realm's boundaries.[2]
