Istva is a homebrew universe influenced by traditional western fantasy and eastern cultures. Unlike most tabletop RPG settings, Istva doesn’t have a multi-planar system. Instead there is simply a Physical World (the Material Plane) and a Spirit World (most all of the other typical planes combined into an extreme reflection of the Physical World). Think of it like Avatar the Last Airbender or Spirited Away. All of the magic in the universe originates from the Spirit World (or from the gods themselves). As such, the Physical World is more “low fantasy” (think Middle Earth), magic is decently rare, and many rural folk probably have never seen it in person. Even the largest temples and churches in a city may only have access to minor healing spells.
