I am itching and scratching to know if there is a piece of history in your fictional world that NOT many people know the real truth about.
The history is a GIANT mystery and has even left behind something that remained unchanged throughout the many, many years later.
Still, it one of those things were people are so eager to unravel the truth behind it, but research is almost impossible (till it becomes somewhat or all the way possible) for the people.
On Alagossia, there are these absurdly massively tall and wide marble pillars that come out of the ground.
They are called the Eradelian Pillars and NOBODY (except a tiny few) knows why it called that or why it is even there. So many people search for clues on the mysterious pillars of unknown origin.
The people who know about the pillars are either long dead or refuse to talk about it for whatever reason.
There is also a Shadowland that is the size of ultra-continent, but it is a Shadowland that people normally come across when they are either lost at sea or something.
The Shadowland was once called Nazra and it was home to a certain species. Yet the scariest thing is that when people manage to leave the place, they are NOT the and will never be the same ever again.
However, one thing that is common that every person who leaves Nazra is this “it’s alive, the place is alive, and there’s so much misery!”
So, the Shadowland of Nazra and the Eradelian Pillars have a huge part in global history of Alagossia. The real issue is that nobody can learn more about it as if it is forbidden knowledge never meant to shared with the world or something more sinister.
What about you though?
Is there something in your fictional world’s history that hasn’t been explored for whatever reason?
