The World of Animus

The many, merry adventures of Baron von Meowhausen, Time-Traveller and Culinary Explorer extraordinaire

Like Baron von Munchausen, Meowhausen the cat lives in fantasy. He meets talking animals & has many Puss in Boots like adventures on the fantasy world of Animus.


The contemporary map of Animus

Like Earth, Animus is a sphere, although it is several times larger and only half of the planet is considered habitable and explored. Very much UNlike Earth, two tiny stars spin around the world, in opposite directions, just above the poles. The inhabited landmass sits at the crown of the world, with a tropical sea at the pole. Whereas the equator is a frozen wasteland that surrounds the planet like an icy belt. There is but one gigantic continent enclosing the warm, vast Sky Ring Sea and, in turn, itself locked in by the Frozen Ocean ending in an Arctic Band around the equator. None who have ventured into the frozen waste have returned (so far).

POOZESTAN starts out as a desert, on its border with the Great Valley Gorge and rises to a plateau that ends at the foothills of the Frostbite mountain range, on the other side of which, lie the highlands of the dog nation of BOW-WOWRIA and beyond that— BOVINIA, which ultimately, ends in a rain-forest jungle—PADDESTAN, that shares a border with the Great Valley Gorge, the entrance to FIENDLAND which lies beneath the tropical jungle.
