Sydiah's Hinterlands is a major region across the Suvaren Field, which contains a large amount of rocky debris, islands, and other waste material which usually originates from the Aeterna Caligne. Populating the Suvaren Field in a thick cloud of material, Sydiah's Hinterlands have been known for eons, being referenced in many ancient texts and being renowned as a unique feature of the Suvaren Field. Sydiah's Hinterlands was first catalogued and named by Vurilia Jiutopati, after the disappearance of Mother Sydiah. They are named after Mother Sydiah - who tried to utilize the Aeterna Caligne to produce more members of The Architects. Her risky attempt backfired, and produced The Hinterlands as a result.
While it holds a standard appearance, Sydiah's Hinterlands is known for its anomalous properties, which pertain to the Aeterna Caligne. Sites which link to the Aeterna Caligne, colloquially known as The Cracks of Reality, are near almost every site of Sydiah's Hinterlands. sites of the Aeterna Caligne are usually inert in its nature of anomalousness, though there have been numerous sealed off sections which may pose a threat to daily life in the Suvaren Field.
Sydiah's Hinterlands, with its closeness to the Aeterna Caligne, has had a profound effect in local Psychokinesis. Reports of heightened abilities, increase in learning, and other boons have been observed and confirmed. In the close confines of The Cracks of Reality, these effects may become negative. Magi, as well as former psychokinetics, have been known to experience harmful effects to their weight in the Aeterna Caligne. The most notable major downside is that The Cracks of Reality speed up relative death with use of psychokinesis. They may also cause sudden troubles with casual use of Psychokinesis.
Sydiah's Hinterlands, while mostly present in the Suvaren Field, are not exclusive to it. Instances of identical phenomena have been observed in the Aylothn Galaxy and Peleunsk among others. Effects from the Aeterna Caligne are usually toned down in instances not from the Suvaren Field. Authorities from many nations have typically deemed Sydiah's Hinterlands to be non-eventful, with many regions even being colonized or deeply explored. Any dangerous areas which reside or appear are immediately zoned off, though there is nothing currently known which can stop it.
There exist several notable sites of Sydiah's Hinterlands, which may hold intricate development or unique traits. Many sites of this type happen to be dangerous, or may shift in accordance to the Aeterna Caligne's nature. Others may be entirely docile and safe to inhabit or research, and contain population centers and scientists, as well as many psychokinetic users.
|Description||The Veizesig Subcontinent is a very populated region, which is located in a very active part of Sydiah's Hinterlands. In this region, areas of leakage from the Aeterna Caligne have been recorded to be docile yet large. It has encompassed the region of the Veizesig Subcontinent ever since colonization. The continent itself is a series of 'islands' which surround a central urbanized mass. There exists native life to the Veizesig Subcontinent, which has been integrated in the urban structure of it. It is also used as a method of attraction to tourists and passerbys.||B'Kalatala, mostly known for being the most densely known populated area in the Local Universe, also contains several areas which area near Sydiah's Hinterlands. These areas, showing normal levels of safety, are one of the hottest tourist sites in the vicinity of B'Kalatala. These sites include ancient and abandoned structures, which have been preserved and used as a marketing tool and attraction for areas near it. Other than its blatant use for local economy, the section of Sydiah's Hinterlands near B'Kalatala have recently been known for flaring up upon the return of Mother Sydiah. Anomalies have heightened, though safety is still at acceptable levels.|
|Description||Irchec is a notably dangerous area of Sydiah's Hinterlands, which has been zoned off for the safety of the Suvaren Field. Irchec is primarily known for being the area in which Mother Sydiah disappeared, in turn creating The Hinterlands itself. Existing in a purely chaotic state, Irchec has been known to release numerous forces from the Aeterna Caligne, which have spread through numerous quarantine zones. Irchec has also threatened populated areas on many occasions, though containment has appeared to be going opulently. No methods of stopping Irchec's leakage has been found as of the modern day.||The Architect's Cloud is a rather docile area of Sydiah's Hinterlands, though it is known for its violent and anomalous history. Before containment and neutralization, The Architect's Cloud was one of the most dangerous areas of Sydiah's Hinterlands. It has always taken the appearance of wispy white clouds, which exponentially populated the Suvaren Field. It was only under the full attention of the Sedruan government, as well as action by the Chosen of Sydiah did The Architect's Cloud become inactive. As of the modern day, The Architect's Cloud exists near the core of the Suvaren Field, orbiting the black hole as if it is another assemblage of gas and dust.|
|Description||The Via Aurum Nebula is a large, golden emission nebula which is located in the Holara Hinterlands of the Aylothn Galaxy. While it has become much more stable since its creation, it is still classified as a component of Sydiah's hinterlands. Currently, the Via Aurum Nebula houses two major civilizations, them being the Thulcandran Federation and the Sovereign Provinces of Holara. These nations have existed in the Via Aurum Nebula exclusively after its creation, being able to exploit its high amount of natural resources. To the center of the Via Aurum Nebula exists a very powerful object referred to as the Eye of the Aylothn, which is known to fuel the Via Aurum Nebula and keep its clouds stable for many thousands of years. The Eye of the Aylothn is also speculated to be an area which brings reality and the Aeterna Caligne close together, resulting in spacetime anomalies. It has also been the center of recent events involving The Exhumation, where the Eye of the Aylothn is speculated to house the consciousnesses of the fallen Architects.||Heracles is a unique planetary object, located in the Anthrov Arm of the Via Sagittaria Galaxy. It is well known for its affiliation in the Hinterlands, being infamous for its former anomalous properties. However, Heracles has since been sterilized of any negative anomalous traits, leaving barren and solitary. In its time as a harmful anomalous object, Heracles was observed to be a large opening in the Aeterna Caligne, which managed to eject a large amount of matter. What resulted was a glowing object, which gained its own set of objects. Upon decay and sterilization of Heracles, its anomalous properties were mitigated extremely, and its objects soon crumbled as the opening closed. As of the modern day, Heracles is only able to sustain its large ring system with its muted abilities.|
The history of Sydiah's Hinterlands is violent, as it formed through many complications and misjudgments. Mother Sydiah, the one which formed the Hinterlands, sought to rapidly create more members of The Architects, as well as expand the reach of Sedrua. However, her usage of psychokinesis backfired, and caused a large disturbance in the Aeterna Caligne. Known as the Wane of Reality, this event is commonly understood to be the beginning of decline for the nation of Sedrua. Eventually, Mother Sydiah became trapped in the Aeterna Caligne, with her power being redistributed as openings in the realm of falsespace. For Sydiah, she would go on to experience eons of time, with the outside universe now reeling from her attempts in gaining power. With the creation of The Hinterlands, Drizuna Cluytho, a well-known member of the Sedruan Government and the Chosen of Sydiah, went rogue and left Vurilia Jiutopati to be the leader of The Creed.
As soon as they formed, The Chosen of Sydiah, as well as the nation of Sedrua, noticed countless openings across national space. The disappearance of Mother Sydiah caused a sense of isolationism in Sedrua, and so everything began to crumble. Vurilia pulled numerous assets from distant galaxies, which would quell the cascading threat of The Hinterlands. Over the course of many millennia, Sedrua would enter a guttural decline, enforced by new isolationist ideologies and homeland issues. With time, The Hinterlands became more of a background threat, though Sedrua would never be the same.
As the ages progressed, so did Sedrua's management with the Hinterlands. Isolationism left many of its assets in the Suvaren Field, where the Hinterlands were the most present. It was only through years of long extermination efforts did any of the threats disappear. By the 7000s BCE, The Hinterlands were mostly mitigated, through a large number of collective effort. The effects of them remain to the modern day however, with small sites in the Suvaren Field, as well as the Aylothn Galaxy.
