How will the underrealm work?

Considering that the underrealm remained occupied for the past eternity by the Tulnar, there should already be huge cities down there, where the Tulnar lived while hiding from the cataclysm that unfolded on the surface. However, the node system will also apply in the underrealm, so how will that work? Will there already be Tulnar cities at launch? Or did they live like beasts without settlements for the last couple of thousand years? And how will we travel to the underrealm? There are the big ancient shafts you can go in to, but does that mean that the entire map will have two layers? Or will there be some kind of portal from one realm to another?
Is there some information about all of this already?

    Great question! Remains a mystery though! Perhaps there is a civilization in a *cough* starting area but because the divine portals are open the Tulnar feel safe and ready to explore the world away from their starting home :open_mouth:
    Also you will be able to travel though caves and real entrances to the under realm it won't be through portals :)

    Oh yeah it could be that each race has some kind of 'starting area', the Tulnar in a secluded part of the underrealm and each of the other races on the other side of a portal... I hope we will get some information about this in the comming Q&A's :) 
    (Ps. I'm sorry if I make some people cringe because of grammatical mistakes but I'm not a native English speaker)
  • I'm expecting it to have ruins and ancient caverns scattered around. Look like the under realm from Skyrim a bit but bigger!
  • I'm like ninja typing cos I'm at work so my spelling and stuff is all over the place xD
    We know each race from the non magical world's will come through the portals - will be each race eg dwarves from one portal.
    Sadly the Tulnar are a mutation of what was left behind from those that didn't escape the calamity that destroyed the world when the divine gates were closed so I imagine they are a really strong family type race that somewhat fear the surface - after all they have seen the worst of what happened. So that's why I reckon they will have a tight family unit starting zone area. 
  • I know there nodes in the under-realm just how balanced there will be is a different story but i still being worked on as need to create a new map   
  • I doubt there will be pre-made cities in the Under-realm.
    But, we don't know what the lore will be. For all we know, the gods will have recently destroyed all of the Underrealm cities.
  • I would just like to share a video I made on all the information I could find from several livestreams, discord posts, and videos on the Underrealm and the Tulnar race.

  • I wonder if they will add some type of unnatural looking vegetation down there. Something we've never before, like blackened willow trees with glowing purple leaves that only exist beneath the surface because it only thrives in darkness.

    Sorry, the RP side of me started to take over for a sec there.
  • I strongly suspect we'll see the origins of our world in the underrealm.....:#

    Did they show any visual representations of that flora or? If they did, I've missed it so I'll have to go rummage.

    No concept art yet. Someone asked during one of the last live streams and the devs emphatically confirmed.
  • Thanks for the info @Dygz :)
  • I think the underrealm work like this... it's under ground like a huge hole 
  • As far as I was aware the Tulnar were a race that went underground a long time ago to avoid the conflicts of whatever wars and shenanigans were going on top side. Slowly over time they gained more "beastial" traits whatever that means.

    They've said there will be some tight tunnels and corridors and whatnot and also huge open caverns and stuff. I would assume there would be exclusive flora (and fauna?) in the underrealm.

    Also no cities in the beginning anywhere due to the node systems being the things that generate the cities. Though there could be ruins or something?
  • Still no Alien beasties confirmed? :( 
  • We Tulnar shall reclaim what we have lost... As for the cities thing maybe they were nomadic? It'd kinda be a weird advantage/disadvantage for pregenerated cities to be down there. Ruins and maybe some camp sites and such would be viable though. The Tulnar obviously understand things on at least a Tribal level or it would be very difficult for them to grasp the concepts of the class kits and city life.

    I'm just talking from what little we know though. Maybe we will get a penalty to xp gain because of such isolation and lack of being "civilized".
  • My interpretation is that the tulnar were not one race when they went underground, they were a handful of forgotten races that were left behind up top, they escaped underground, interbred hence the different traits...
  • If I place the throne there I should be able to have more mana but over there looks better why must decorating be so hard
