So, the name "Sarav" popped into my head, and I liked it, so that'll be the name of the world. Most of the worldbuilding still goes on in Theressia, though.
Note that years of events will be denoted both in the local calendar and in BP (Before Present).
If you're interested, I also have a blog mainly about Al-Fahan, though I expand to talk about the rest of Theressia on occasion. You can find it at al-fahan.tumblr.com.
In addition to simply creating the world, I run a couple of DnD campaigns in this setting. Note to any of the players of these campaigns, this wiki contains several spoilers, though I mainly add things in as the group discovers and learns about the world.
Mid-fantasy, if that's a thing. Most of the world is governed by physical laws equivalent to ours, like low fantasy, but with several loopholes due to the three magics, like high fantasy. Thus, mid fantasy. Technology-wise, Theressia is approximately equivalent to the Late Middle Ages or Early Renaissance.
Theressia is a subcontinent in the far east. It is very isolated from the rest of the world, due to the large mountain range inhabited by the dwarves, followed by the steppelands of the orcs, and the vast desert to the west of Al-Fahan. Little contact has been made with other parts of the world, though myths abound. The main relationship between Theressia and the rest of the world lies in tenuous trade relations with the Far West.
