Okay, first off, its very amusing to me how the words 'magical realm creation' have a much different meaning then in say other fantasy worlds. Mostly due to the fact that the Magic Realm is actually a place.
The point of this thread is a sort of epic project my character Heru might take up in the future - a project involving creating a supernatural land for his people (that is Hermetic magi, Redcaps, their covenfolk, and the Gifted).
My idea is that he would take certain places of power in the world and use them as nexus points for the greater realm creation. In fluff terms it would be like how in Exalted the Primordials built Creation on the axis of the Five Elemental Poles (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Wood). Each Elemental Pole is a point that is both infinite and immediate as neeeded and it is through the combination of them that Creation exists.
My idea is that he would find similar such locations in Mythic Europe to use as Foundational Poles for his great working. Of course, unlike the five Elemental Poles of Exalted, he will use the concepts of the 15 Arts as the Poles.
I have the idea that as he traveled through Mythic Europe he would have found them over the years, even if I have yet to realize all of them. That one of them might be in each Tribunal, to make it all the more interesting. Right now though I only know of three locations - Earth in Mount Pilatis in the Greater Alps, Water in Adulis in the Red Sea, and Fire in the Ahaggar Mountains in Africa.
Having thought of such things I was wondering if anyone here had any other ideas that might be connected to it. That and any sort of interesting plot seed elements that might go along with this.
This is a long term potential project for my saga campaign adventure thing and so there is much I haven't thought of yet. Buuut I figured there is no harm in beginning to think of it and such. hehe
But yeah, any ideas or thoughts or suggestions or potential issues that would be maybe fun to pursue would be welcome.
