Lemuria is one of the Four Domains, and home to the ancient, isolated, and highly advanced Lemurian culture. It is a hidden underwater kingdom, accessible by a gateway located within the Challenger Deep, known by the people of Lemuria as the Current.





Tritonius is the oldest city in Lemuria, as well as its capital. The city spans a great distance across the ocean floor, its many spires and walls built from enchanted metals and coral harvested from the nearby reefs. It is from here that the long line of Coral Kings and Queens have ruled the aquatic kingdom, seated upon their throne in the Palace of Pearls.

With its foundations built within a seabed valley, the city stretches far and wide along various cliffs and ridges of the ocean floor. A wall constructed from coral and ocean metals runs the entire length of Tritonius, and a protective shield of powerful magic surrounds the city, protecting it from threats from the waters above and below. Coral reefs and kelp forests surround the city, and several small villages dwell within them, mostly fishing communities that provide food for Tritonius.

The waters around Tritonius are temperate, with only mild fluctuations in temperature throughout the year. The reefs and kelp forests that populate the cliffs and ridges around the city provide fertile agriculture, attracting a host of marine animals and other creatures.

The vast majority of Tritonius’s population is of triton heritage, which is the dominant ethnicity in Lemuria. However, there are small communities of other heritages and species who live within the city walls, including merfolk, sea fey, nereids, and marids.

As the center of Lemurian civilization, Tritonius is not without its share of crime. Parts of the city have a number of smuggling rings and criminal gangs, notably in areas near the trenches in the eastern districts. Illicit creatures are sometimes summoned from the Abyss, and black market shops sell illegal materials harvested from marine animals or coral reefs.

Lemuria is ruled by the Coral King Amitu, who dwells within the Palace of Pearls in Tritonius, along with his wife, Coral Queen Sarai. While they are certainly concerned with the governing of Tritonius, they have a much larger realm to preside over, and as such, leave most of the city’s daily affairs to their advisors and other appointed officials.

The Current

Located at the bottom of the deepest trench in Lemuria, the Current is the barrier that separates Lemuria from Earth. It is guarded vigilantly by the Lemurian superhero known as Trident and is further protected by additional magical shields and enchantments.
