Asdar is name of the World of Asdar and is found as a wander-word throughout the languages of the Pallathantic Region. The name 'Asdar' is thought to originate from an Ancient Gwenyan word for 'branch' or from the name of a tribe of Elamahti. Ancient tradition says that it is called a branch, meaning a 'branch' of Kuol Tuvahr or the cosmic urwelt from which all titans, human, and humanlike civilizations sprang. The word 'Asdarah' is sometimes used to specify the world as a physical entity.

The age of the world of Asdar is regarded as far exceeding the length of all human civilizations and likely most other humanlike civilizations. Asdar's size and climate are very similar if not identical to Earth.

Humans of Asdar

At present (ca 2735 AI), humans are the prevalent intelligent species in the old world while various humanlikes hold sway in the new world.

Humans do not agree regarding their origins on the world of Asdar. The two prevailing and contentious points of view are that the gods created humans on Asdar and that the Titans brought humans to Asdar no less than 20,000 years ago. A version of the former is widely held by most religions of Asdar while the latter is most prevalent among scholars although it is by no means the dominant view in the institutions of higher learning of the Pallathantic. Alternative and mixed theories also exist, but they are not as widely adopted as the titanist and the autochthonist theories.

Divinities

The mortals of the world of Asdar often see their mother planet as divine and worship many divinities. Many civilizations see the earth goddess as Magdaia and her companion, Knomos, as the god of the dark depths.
