Forgotten Realms Artifact Hunters: Reassembling The Avatar of Torm
Earthmotes are free-floating bits of landscape that defy gravity to hover in the sky. Despite their
appearance, these islands in the sky are as stable and durable as if they rested on the ground. Earthmotes are common along the edges of regions where portions of Abeir replaced Toril’s landscape, as if marking an imperfect seam between the fused worlds. Two or more earthmotes might be found together—in some places, small clusters of floating islands hang like eternal clouds. However, they can be found nearly anywhere, and lone earthmotes (often called simply motes) have become familiar features in even the most staid lands.
