Exaria is a moon of the gas giant Jin found orbiting in MIM-4185113b. The ecosystem is unique in that it is home to magical creatures who owe allegiance to a pseudo deity known as the Toad Queen. It was colonized by clans sorcerers that migrated from Earth to escape persecution.
It is a population of 130,000, a gravity of 0.9G and an atmospheric composition of 68% nitrogen, 31% oxygen and 1% argon.
As Exaria is a gas giant moon, it has elongated day night cycles – 5 days of daylight and 5 days of night with an occasional total eclipse. Having no ice caps, the moon sports an entirely tropical environment on its surface with trees that grow to enormous sizes as well as vast oceans in between that go deeper than any of Earth’s oceans.
Because of the world’s high oxygen content, forest fires are dangerously common giving Exaria a constantly changing environment.
Exaria is home to some enormous creatures that take advantage of the moon’s thick atmosphere and low gravity. On this world, one of the major evolutionary quirks was that magic became an advantageous development with some animals taking advantage of its physics defying phenomena. Because of this, Exarian wildlife is of great scientific interest. However, little of Exaria has been explored due to the large predators that stalk the jungles forcing nearly every civilian establishment to live in the mountains. Not to mention, hostile relations still exist between Exarians and the people of Albacin.
One of the more remarkable aspects of Exaria is that the ecosystem is regulated by a single intelligent entity named the Toad Queen. The Toad Queen, using magic as a power source, is responsible for watching over and ensuring the balance of the predator-prey environment and to prevent it from collapsing. Thus, every animal and plant on Exaria is a servant of the Toad Queen, and they act in her stead.
- Exarfruit – An apple that contains a dangerous, hunger-inducing toxin
- Toad Queen – An entity that controls Exaria’s ecosystem.
Exaria’s civilization is pre-industrial because of the local laws against advanced technology. By tradition, the sorcerers believe that conventional technology seen on Earth is oppressive, and thus, they have chosen to limit themselves. Their most advanced scientific field is alchemy, especially mixing a variety of strange ingredients native to the moon and then creating magical concoctions.
- Arcana City – Known as the first city created by sorcerers, Arcana City is a majestic location situated in Exaria’s mountaintops. It is best known for its public school of magic, a grand tower located in the center of the city.
