The place is not that different compared to ours. The stars are the same, the weather is just as awful and even some of the languages feel familiar. But you will also see a world with odd races, funny traditions, powerful religions, and wonderful people. And a lot of sand, because the author happens to like that stuff a lot...
I've made a guide for the world of a State of Equilibrium. It consists of a number of subjects involving geography, creatures, religion, history, languages, and magic. I initially wrote it for myself, simply because I can't remember details, but I've decided to share it.
The guide can be found only on my DeviantArt page, because it is a document that is very much alive, and far from complete. Occasionally, I will change it when I come up with something new and interesting.
