Haven

A Living World Under Siege

“Haven” to no less than six native sentient species (the Lutins, Korobokuru, Wakyambi, Sidhe, Rakshasas, and Humans) and an alien refugee species (the Couatl), this world is a special place. She overflows with the power of life; her very clouds and lakes can have thoughts; and on some level, Haven herself is alive. Her vast, rolling, dreaming consciousness can sometimes be touched by those with the proper skill.

To touch the mind of Mother Haven these days is to feel her apprehension: she is under siege on several fronts. From within, her own children are building marvelous creations that may soon outpace their ability to control them —and their effects on the biosphere. From without, her twin sister has become a silent world of beautiful graves, now known as Ghost; and her eccentric cousin Antipode is a world of fiends (the Tzitzimitl) who try cross the gulf of space between them every time he gets near her. From beyond, malevolent psychic entities are promising her children their grandest dreams if they’d simply allow them to manifest, just once…

Fortunately, Haven is not without champions. Though her children live at various technological levels equivalent to Earth’s stone–steam ages, they’ve developed the “technology” of expanding both body and mind to reach and redefine their full potential. Some of the abilities of native Havenites are nothing short of magical. For now, the siege holds.

Titles for Haven may be adapted for use in several types of stories, and each stands more-or-less on its own, but together they make the complete background of the world of Haven.
