Checking in on the Planeswalkers (2015)
August 19 2015
Abnormally mana-rich, Shandalar is a place where magic flows freely: from the wilds of Kalonia and the kingdom of Thune to the shadows of Xathrid, the peak of Valkas, and the remote Evos Isle. It was once home to the Onakke, an ogre civilization adept at using the plane's abundant mana to craft artifacts of terrible power. Now the inhabitants of this unusual plane must combat the growing hive mind of the slivers, an ever-evolving race that threatens to consume their world.
A cunning polymorphist, Jalira often funds her research by adventuring across Shandalar for riches, although she isn't above using her skills to rob from those she feels deserve it. She often travels with the adventurer bard Yisan, sharing a common fascination with unique creatures and easy money.
A land of riotously overgrown fields of wildflowers and other flora, Planeswalkers covet control over locations like the Wilds due to their high concentration of mana. Innocuous though they may seem, the Eloren Wilds harbor dangers to spellcasters: magical barbed vines that can quickly tighten around a human-sized object and "lose" it forever.
