The World of Kom Txaus
The world of Kom Txaus has radius of 4102-miles radius and a surface area of 232.5 million square miles. The 20.25-degree axial tilt gives the planet a more even range of winters and summers. Kom Txaus spins in a counter rotation meaning the sun comes up in the West and sets in the East with the prevailing winds crossing the continent from East to West. The planet is also few degrees cooler than Earth with about the 65% of the surface covered in water.
Just below the surface are a honeycomb caverns and grottoes covering thousands of miles and on the surface with hundreds of caves that are portals to other worlds. Each cave has a unique staff used to activate portals within the caves. Sometimes the world will activate a portal for the less intelligent creatures. Frequently the world seems to know what is needed and will bring an animal or race to fulfill a need.
There are 450, 29 hour days in a year, divided into 13 months having 34 or 35 days spread out over four 8 days weeks.
There are three moons orbiting Kom Txaus, Xania, Kasijn, and Flalib. Studies by the Elves thousands of years ago revealed that not only do they affect the tides and cause earthquakes, but they are kept in place by an invisible force. More?
Only someone with Thesilan blood or Elvin Blood can tap into the planet's magic. Nobody is sure how the other races have the ability to use magic.
