Illumini Primo

Realms of the Library of Illumination

Libraries of Illumination exist on twelve realms;
the Library of Origination is on Lumina.

After the beginning, but before the middle years of the existence of the Library of Illumination, the realms housing all literature fought so viciously among themselves, that it was decided to isolate them to preserve the history of literature. According to decree, the only connection between realms would be enchanted portals, controlled by the College of Overseers. Only the COO would have the power to transport through the portals to the twelve realms. The College of Overseers vowed not to interfere with the autonomy of the individual realms, unless the status quo was purposely tampered with by an internal or external force that overturned the delicate balance among the twelve different sovereignties.

LOI Inclusion Agreement

Each realm is self-sufficient and operates independently. In return for the guidance of an overseer, the realm pays a tithe—not money but the inclusion of all its new literature, art, math, and music into all the Libraries of Illumination. That way everything that’s newly created on an individual realm automatically becomes part of the entire library system on all of the realms.

LOI Portal System

The portals, which are transport devices, are hidden among the triquetra-shaped cupolas of the libraries, which all shared the same basic layout, to designate equality. For more than 12-million millennia there was no reason to modify the properties of the portals. However, after the Two Millennia War, the portals were re-programmed to automatically switched direction whenever breached, so the culprits (like fish out of water) would be misdirected from their intended destination.Then, an innocent breach originating on Fantasia, unleashed a war among the powerful founts of knowledge that threatened the very existence of literature. The overseers reacted by sealing the portals.
