Helfen is covered in rolling hills and great oceans. In order to absorb the most energy from their sun Ombrut, most of Helfen's native flora are coloured deep blue. Its numerous ley lines enhance teleportation magic, forming numerous stable portals called far-step arches. Most far-step arches connect different parts of Helfen's four continents and numerous islands, except for a few one-way ones which lead to other worlds.
Helfen's capital city Azrefen-Zhar-Nento, whose districts are spread across the planet and on neighbouring Habbaba, is the home of the Ninefold Council who governs the entire Helfen-Thel system.
The dominant species on Helfen is the maggedli, who never invented space travel but have nonetheless spread to all other worlds of the system via the far-step arches. Their magic users have worked hard to create far-step arches on other planets as well, allowing them to move between the system with ease. All of Helfen's wildlife have been domesticated by maggedli magic, and the world is peaceful and plentiful.
