The Ether is another world in where summoners hunt for creatures known as demons.
When a summoner dies, their demon will remain in our world for a few hours, before they are reabsorbed back into the ether.
Accessing the EtherEdit
The ether can only be accessed by summoners using a keyed pentacle made of an organic material. Hominum and the orcs have different keys. The different keys make entrances to entirely different parts of the ether. The air of the Ether appears to be poisonous to humans, able to cause paralysis and the victim to enter a comatose state with minimal exposure. These can last from a few hours to years possibly for the affected persons lifetime.
In the Inquisition, it is revealed that orcs have found a way to access the ether without getting poisoned. Through some consumption of special leaves one can endure the effects of ether for a certain span of time.
Should a summoner make a portal and it closes with their demon on the other side, their bond with their demon is broken.
The ether is disk-shaped and made up of different rings. The outer rings are where the weaker demons are and also the Deadlands. The inner rings would have the most powerful demons. All demons have a subconscious pull from the center of the ether.
