Time and Infinity
Contains an unnamed planet with the Cloud Lands, Floating Islands, Taal, and an abandoned larger continent.
There's an elaborate timeline somewhere...
The Cloud Lands was created by the Divine Star, the goddess worshipped by the creatures there. The Floating Islands was raised by mages from Taal a long time ago. More recently, a strange disaster destroyed all human civilizations on the mainland.
The threads of this world have existed in my mind for as long as I can remember. Once I created the Spirit Lynx, everything began to fall into place, and it became a solid story.
So...this is all great, but none of it is even remotely cannon anymore, so...I'll just leave it here for future ideas.
In this world, the air contains magic, and some creatures can harness it. Some plants have magic, and a few animals do too. Sentient beings sometimes are born with a natural affinity for magic and those without it can learn. Plants with magic, like trees, are a constant source. They use it, and produce it too. That’s where all the magic in the air comes from. Some sentient beings imbue non-living objects with magic. These will eventually run out if their stores are not replenished. The size of the object, as well as the materiel it is made of, determine how much magic it can hold. Organic things can hold more magic, and how much time passed since it ceased to live also is a factor. For example, a freshly cut log will hold more magic then a same size wooden log that was cut years ago. Plants and animals can also be imbued, but animals have to be willing. Some things can become magical magnets, attracting it in waves, but not sucking it in. There are also different types of magic. Elemental magic, the power to harness the magical elements(Fire, Water, Wind, Electricity, Earth/Stone, Light, and Shadow) is one, as well as Life magic, the ability to imbue things and to ‘talk’ to plants and animals.
The Cloud Lands, Taal, the Floating Islands, and the abandoned mainland continent
Most books in this universe are about the Cloud Lands, none are about the unnamed large continent.
