Description A set of dimensions, or orders of form, that facilitate rapid travel to those who are able to access them. Within the Merstaln, short distances translate to much greater distances in the first order of form. The orders that comprise the Merstaln are not a healthy environment, and they are inhabited by various inimical life forms. Also, the topography of these spaces do not permit absolute travel from any point to any point - only certain specific directions are available from any entrance point.
