Regions of Celesia

The world of Celesia was created to be the crowning jewel of the Creator Gods when they fashioned the universe. It is a fairly large world, with a circumference of over fifty thousand kilometers. Water covers a little over half the planet. There are nine continents, and five oceans. There are also many groupings of islands, some large enough to hold powerful nations.
