Alturas is the world that Name of the King and all following books take place in. It is a small planet with two moons, Daysha and Arroyo. Alturas has three continents with an incredible array of biomes and home of millions of species of creatures. Many of these creatures have magic, and the intelligent ones bend magic to their will with charms. Much of the continents are split into provinces of varying sizes, marked out by the territory that a powerful Fey used to covet. Now, though, the Fey have been banished to the Feylands on the northern half of the largest continent, Vose, and remain trapped there by the Feyland’s massive Obelisks. The provinces still exist, used by the constantly shifting, unstable monarchies for maps and general geographic ease.
