A Brief Summary
Petasos is one of six countries in the world of Talaria. It is known primarily for it's population of humans, however towards the beginning of the Alchemical generation more and moree exotic races became moree prominent. These include elves, dwarves, halflings, tieflings, dragonborn, and more.
At the beginning of the world there was only dark ocean. Eldritch beasts ruled the deep cosmos sea until an island was formed. On the island seven creatures who would later become the Talarie; the wizard gods of Talaria were born:
The last of the seven was a nameless tiefling god: an elf-like demon. He represented malice and pain, and was quickly exiled by the others after attempting to kill Elaren. No one knows where the seventh god went, and he hasn't been seen since.
The six Talarie became a family of sorts, creating a village on their small island in their first 5 years. The Talarie thrived, and knew nothing else. Eventually, they outgrew their island and Teleran suggested that they create more islands with the magical weave in the air they had recently mastered the control of. Not long after, the Talarie were each focusing all of the magic that had concentrated on their small island and created a large island each. The six continents of Talaria. The gods created the islands in this order: First Torche pulled the country of Aegis from the dark and vast sea. Next K'este created Harpe, Gudnei created Stygius, and Elaren created Aulos. Teleran and Slappy were left. Slappy, being the god of secrets, waited for Teleran to leave before he made his own country, but when he rralised that Teleran was not going anywhere, he asked the god of logic to close his eyes while he pulled his own land mass from the ground. Slappy created Khryselakatos, a country no one has found the exact location of since. Teleran, being the leader of the Talarie, felt uncomfortable in moving from the island he had spent his whole life on. He knew that he must make more space, and so created a large continent cradling the Talarie island like a hand. Petasos was born.
Petasos was populated with humans and not long after halflings in the south-eastern region, elves in Deshurun - an island to the west, and dwarves in Bruenore - an island to the north.
