Like many a random day in a discord full of creatives we start world building...
Lake Yonia is a space lake. Like a rift in space filled with a gas similar to mist and filled with long lost sunken planets where the inhabitants bodies have all been mumified and are now worn of creatures living in the lake roaming under the surface.
One of the planets houses Castle Yonia. The planet is so large that it’s gravity has caused neighboring planetoids to be sucked into its gravity well. They smashed into the planet’s surface, creating so many craters that it now appears a mountain range has formed around what is now called the sea of Yox, where the planet’s remnants have been drawn, as close to the core as possible. The immense amount of molten ferrous ore that creates the gravity well will only cool when the slowly increasing elliptical of the planet’s orbit slingshots it away from the enormous star that it circles and into deep space. The sea would be boiling until the planet’s death.
It is said that the planet Yon was one of the victims of lake Yonia, and that it may hold the key to overcoming the Yachtipusses. The planet Yon was the home of the undertree which is a tree growing hollow in the ground creating tunnels with their vast roots. Eventually the roots had taken over the entire planet and Yon was no more than a undertree shell. Before the final pieces of the core was absorbed as nutrient to the planetary parasite that is the undertree it released a burst of energy creating one of the 8 teardrop crystals needed for the release of the Yarghazar.
he Yarghazar is assumed to be the only being strong enough to battle the Yachtipuss Queen and end their reign of the yalaxy.
The Yarghazar and the 8 teardrop crystals is a core underlying narrative which the Yoniverse story arc is built upon. Collecting them is a core objective of the characters within the Yoniverse story.
Finding these crystals is something which Dr. Wise's crew spends much of their time on trying to locate, along with pages of the ancient Ledger (maybe they hope to find clues of where the crystals are located within the pages?)
