Tellur is the name for the world upon which Lord of Maelstrom
takes place, located at the center of the Material Plane
. The storyline primarily deals with a stormy region called The Maelstrom
, which encompasses the continents of Andalar
, and the northern half of Irfinden
. The remainder of the world is collectively referred to the Outer World
Tellur is much like earth, but has a radius of 32,000 kilometers, five times that of the Earth. In spite of this, it has normal earth gravity and the days are 24 hours long. However, one year lasts 360.197 days, giving it a calender of 12 months with 30 days and a leap year on every fifth year.
Tellur has innumerable satellites. The closest ones are its two moons: Aggro
. Further out at a distance of 300,000 kilometers is Thuban
, the sun. Further beyond, at a distance from 500,000 kilometers to 1,000,000 kilometers is a region of space called The Firmament
, which forms the stars and constellations. At a distance of 1,000,000 is the planar boundary of the Material Plane.
