Shards of Destiny
ālyth is not a typical planet born of the material plane. The core of the planet was originally part of the Elemental Chaos, dislodged over the course of a millennium by a surge of arcane power coursing through it. Over time, it slowly absorbed this arcane power, until it finally broke off and fell from that plane into the material plane. This magically enriched Arcane Core eventually fell into orbit around a star, and over the next few million years, it gained mass as other heavenly bodies combined with it, eventually forming the world of Vālyth. By the time it had assumed the full mass known today, the intense pressure had turned the Arcane Core molten (now commonly known as The Heart of Vālyth). The arcane energy of the Heart emanates outward from the core, creating two significant effects as it makes its way to the surface; The Breath of Vālyth and Tidepools.
