Arana - The Hive
The Hive is a collection of tunnels and caverns below the earth where many annunaki go to seek out a connection to their Infernal ancestry. While occasional cabals and covens evolve and then melt away (usually due to in-‐fighting or jealousies), the real power lies in cults of personality that govern tribal groups in deep labyrinths and long-‐forgotten grottoes.
Over the years, a bastardized form of Fenic evolved into the Chthonic tongue (called Aranaen by outsiders), though many dialects exist and many are on the verge of being mutually unintelligible. The Hivelands cover thousands of miles and exist beneath desert, forest, and plains. Some legends and rumors hint at Hives beneath the sea.
