Dark Magic in the Bright Sun
Manator is the second moon of a massive gas giant, called Orlon the Bloated god. It is in a slow rotation, combined with a slow revolution around Orlon. This creates a long day/night cycle, lasting months at a time. There are three phases to the rotation; Day is when the continent is facing the sun, away from Orlon, night is when the continent faces away from Orlon and the sun, and Twilight is the phase when the continent faces Orlon, blocking the sun or space from all view.
There are three known continents on the planet: Irdra, Acron, and the High Seat. Irdra and Acron straddle the equator, almost perfectly opposite of one another spanning three quarters of the surface from north to south. The High Seat sits in a strange location, a mile above the south pole, forever floating and unreachable, huge sheets of ice tumbling into the ocean below.
