The meteor, which probably has a bunch of really cool names but they aren’t written here, created the Crater. Crater Creator is not one of the cool names.
The Crater is about as large as the Mediterranean Sea. The impact was so impactful that the rim of the crater was above the new sea. Due to unknown, probably magical or maybe scientific reasons, the iron core of the meteor is still really hot. It keeps the water within the crater walls and even some water outside the crater walls liquid. This warmth has attracted many peoples to relocate onto the crater. In fact, some of the biggest cities on Terra Andamao are now found on the crater rim.
The iron core of the meteor remains a mystery. Researchers and magicians have spent the last two decades studying its origins and powers, but are still dumbfounded. Attempts to shard or penetrate the core have been fruitless.
