The Spirit World, Its Three Realms, and the Halfway Teahouse
The spirit world is made up of three realms: The Sea of Despair, the Bitter Barrens, and the Meadow. It is believed that souls that pass into the spirit world carrying negative emotions must first find peace, before entering the Meadow. After their rest in the Meadow, souls can cross over to the Outer Sea.
Three great spirits rule over the three realms of the spirit world - Sea Beast, Swamp Fiend, and Whisper Spirit.
Between dream and reality, on the border between the Outer Sea and Braided Shore, lies the Halfway Teahouse. It is a mythical place where voyaging souls meet, share adventures, and drink tea.
