Enchantment creatures - Lumehaven is a plane teeming with enchantmental energy just waiting to harnessed by Lumehaven's residents. The Order of Sultai had found a way to use the Bastion of Sun's energy to fuse this enchantment energy with living beings. The result was an ethereal physical being; a dichotomy and a fusion at the same time. The process is very difficult, but the benefits are great. Lumehaven features creatures who also have the enchantment subtype.
Lumehaven is a plane teeming with strange magical properties. The core of its magical prowess is two polar opposites on the plane called Bastions which exude a mysterious magical essence. Residents of Lumehaven possess incredible knowledge of magic due to their exposure and study of these magical entities. They have accomplished amazing progress especially in the field of auramancy. Planeswalkers from all over the multiverse come to Lumehaven to study the strange plane and learn from its most powerful mages.
Two centuries ago Lumehaven was torn in war over the Bastions. Because of the opposing properties of the Bastion of Suns and the Bastion of Moons, those that studied one believed the other to be lesser and devoid of honor. The Empire of Shortule controlled the Bastion of Suns with a tight fist. The Elven kingdom of Arraya believed they had the right to the Bastion as well and war ensued. At the same time the Shortule took acts of genocide against all those that used the Bastion of Moons. The Dwarves, seeing the ensuing war turned against all, believing that the hunger for power turned all to evil, and sought to annihilate all kingdoms who used the Bastions for power. The war went on for over a decade before the Dwarven general, Elek Longbeard, formed an alliance against the Shortule Empire. The remaining survivors formed a peace treaty which allowed "freedom of study" of the Bastions for all. It also erected the Order of Sultai to protect and study the Bastions. Despite the ongoing peace, there is still much tension between those who follow the path of the Bastion of Suns and those who follow the Bastion of Moons. Old wounds have not all healed.
