Location Name: Compugnome[edit source]
Compugnome is a massive city built underground. The entrance is on the east side of the city, and is heavily guarded. A huge run-down area known as the Undercity extends beneath Compugnome, and is home to millions of hobgoblins. Most of the buildings in the city are constructed from stone, but it also has many wooden buildings, due to the large number of carpenters that have emigrated from the Empire to work on construction projects in Compugnome. Compugnome is ruled by the gnome king, Tomaso, and his council of advisors. The gnomes oversee several mines, which provide much of the wealth of Compugnome. The gnomes also have a monopoly over the computer technology in the city, and are allowed to access vast databanks of information. It is said that the gnomes of Compugnome have emigrated from many other cities, due to a complete rejection of the ideas of freedom and democracy. Compugnome is the last major bastion of the gnomes in the Empire, and reports indicate that they are actively attempting to spread their ideas of mathematical supremacy to all other races. Reports also indicate that the gnomes of Compugnome are attempting to construct a portal to their underground city, so that they may one day conquer the world.
Location Name: Floating Tower[edit source]
The Floating Tower is a large tower which hovers about ten feet above the surface of the lake. It has no discernible doors, windows, or other means of entry. It is made of a light material, perhaps glass. There is a small dock jutting out from the shore of the lake, but it is impossible to board the tower from this side. The tower was discovered in the middle of the lake some time ago. The first expedition that tried to enter into the tower failed, as did the next, they never returned. Now, the tower hovers over the lake, and no one dares to enter it. Many people are convinced that if one tries to enter into the tower, they will not return.
Location Name: Nalin[edit source]

The arctic region of Nalin is particularly lush, with endless fields of snow-white flowers. The land is currently ruled by a republic, and the capital is the city of Lenet. Many travelers pass through Lenet on their way to or from the east. The people of Nalin share a fierce loyalty to their homelands, even if they haven't always been loyal to one another. It is for this reason that the average citizen distrusts the military presence in Nalin. The Nalin Republic has always been a hotbed of dissent, with soldiers and citizens criticizing their government at every turn. The republic is bolstered by a large amount of non-citizens from all over the world; students and other types of immigrants.
Location Name: Streumom[edit source]
The area around the city of Streumom is prone to earthquakes and other types of natural calamities. It is inhabited by tribes of man-eating beasts, who sometimes go on rampages during earthquakes. To this day, no one knows why these beasts target humans, whom they catch unawares, but there is little that can be done to defend against them. Streumom is known to be the origin of several Embur, creatures that are more or less the physical embodiment of the natural disaster that occurs there, and it is possibly the most dangerous place in the world. Due to its dangers, the military has kept a tight grip on the area, and anyone wishing to enter Streumom must go through a lengthy process to prove their worth.
Location Name: Beusale rainforest[edit source]

Many rare and unusual plants and animals have been found in the forest, some of which can only be found rarely in other parts of the continent. Several types of large predatory beasts roam the forest, both on foot and from horseback. Most notably however are the elves. While the forest does contain several elven habitations and villages, the elves tend to keep to themselves and see outsiders as a possible threat. Fortunately, they have not yet launched any aggressive attacks on people outside their villages. The forest is also a favored place for elven assassins to hide and launch attacks on people.
Location Name: The village of Samsam[edit source]
The village of Samsam is home to several races and tribes. Most notably, it is home to the Samsamy tribe, a large nomadic tribe of desert-dwelling feline nomads. Samsam is located in a massive oasis in the middle of the desert. The oasis is fed by an underground river that flows from the nearby mountains. The oasis is surrounded by a large dry desert, and other than the oasis, there is no vegetation for miles. The Samsamy are a warrior-oriented people, and it is not uncommon to see the men carrying large blades and the women carrying small bows. They value honor and face-saving macho posturing, so the men generally browbeat the women and children, and the women generally dismiss the men as mindless brutes to be subservient to other men. They are a proud people though. They will generally ignore the degrading insults and think of the insult as an example of their manhood. They don't have many possessions save for what they need to stay alive, so when one loses something of value, it's gone forever. The village is a popular location for gladiators to be trained. There are several large arenas, where hordes of barbaric beasts and equally barbaric men fight to the death for the entertainment of the populace. There's also a prison where captured criminals fight to the death for the same entertainment. The prisons are usually over-run by mutant animals, which are more willing to kill the prisoners than the guards. Most of the time the guards just stand around watching the prisoners get eaten, which is all in a day's work for them.
Location Name: The city-state of Regnik[edit source]
Regnik is a large, prosperous city-state on the southern end of the continent. It is currently at war with the city-state of Arrorn to its north, although the exact reasons for the war are unknown. It is also Regnik's policy to not acknowledge the presence of neighboring city-states such as Dalt, although the occasional gift or tribute is always accepted. The city is well defended and contains a large population. Due to its location and large population, it has become a hub for trade on the continent. It contains many shops and areas where mercenaries can work for the government. It also contains several brothels, gambling halls, and other types of entertainment for the less virtuous inhabitants of the city.
The government of Regnik is a theocracy. The city is run by a high priest and a senate of religious leaders. The senate's most important duty is to vote on strategies for the war with Arrorn. Other tasks include establishing and overseeing all other major domestic and foreign policy, declaring war, treaty negotiation with other city-states, and anything else the high priest deems important. The senate also includes several other important positions, such as the military commander, the head of intelligence and various other internal security functions, the head of health and nutrition, the head of education, and many others. Depending on the importance of the position, the senator may be in charge of several other officials. The rest of the officials are there to assist the senators. The religion of Regnik is based on Modny, the warrior god. Each citizen is expected to serve in the military when possible and to worship very zealously. The most important faith is to ensure the survival of the nation. There is no greater sin than to allow the nation to die.

The most remarkable aspect of the province is the great amount of magic that is present. Midsummer sunlight is often refracted by the many crystals in the area, giving the hills and plains a glimmer in the eye when viewed at dawn or dusk. Many of the forests have a blue tint at night. The refraction of light gives the entire landscape a magical feeling. Several small rivers run through the province, with extensive forests lining its banks. There are many animals in the forests, from red deer and wild boar to the most elusive elves. The rivers are home to many species of fish and are also popular places to settle due to their excellent fishing grounds.

The Wolf Stronghold is a large cave complex in the Brot Mountains, with several miles of tunnels. The main "village" is in a large cave, with several smaller caves extending out from it. Defensive ditches run outside of these caves, angling inward to make a "corset" around the larger cave. The ditches are filled with water, and are used to cut off any attackers from getting in, and are also useful for slowing an enemy down. The hills surrounding the cave have been deforested to provide firewood for the lupine inhabitants. Several large tents have been erected outside the cave, where the more important members of the pack live. The wolf pack consists of a number of family units, with adults and young ranging in age from about three years to pups still nursing at their mothers' breasts. Female wolves are much larger than the males, with the largest wolves belonging to the matriarch of the pack. Hunting is conducted primarily by scent, sound and touch, with the most skilled hunters using sight as well. Although many in the wolf pack are nomadic, some have chosen to make their home in the Stronghold. These are the Shamans, the most skilled of the pack and those who have proven most worthy.
Location Name: Thonild[edit source]
Thonild is a small village that was completely destroyed by giant attacks a few years ago. It has yet to recover. Fortunately, it is not likely to be a recurring problem, as the giant tribes of the northern mountains have been waging a vicious war with each other since the village was destroyed. Since the giants have been focused on killing each other, it's unlikely they'll be attacking any tiny villages in the near future.
Location Name: Abib[edit source]
Abib is a bankrupt village that was rendered completely penniless by a series of bad harvests and failed gambles. Since then, the village has been slowly perishing. The mayor of the village, Kary Calwin, is a greedy woman who was recently imprisoned for embezzling money from the village. As her cell was too small for her to run the village from inside, the village was left bankrupt and the guard was withdrawn. This has allowed brigands to flourish, who loot the village at will. The people of the village are not happy about this, and demand that their guard be reinstated.
Location Name: Thorn scrub of Niruhe[edit source]
The Thorn scrub of Niruhe is a desert with several thorn bushes that stand out due to their size and length. Their spines are sharp enough to draw blood if the bush is touched, though bruises and deeper wounds can be caused by them. These bushes are more common in the northern region of the desert. The desert is one of the few relatively natural things left in the Land of the Five Cities. It stretches from the southern seas to just north of the citystate of Dalt. The only other natural things of note are the immense mountains that separate the five cities from each other, and the underground rivers that flow from them.
Location Name: Woodland of Polatha[edit source]
The Woodland of Polatha is a large forest region in the south of Quala. It is one of the few remaining bastions of the ancient elves. The region is run by Queen Sama Blackbriar, who is one of the last of the elves to still make use of traditional elven magic. The region also contains a small settlement of wood elves. The elves of the region are known to be fiercely independent, and do not recognize the rule of Quala over the elves, claiming that the Empire has no business in their territory. In addition to elves, the forest is also home to various animals such as ogres, treants and minotaurs. The region has a reputation for banditry and very little law enforcement, however this is not entirely true. Imperial patrols routinely patrol the region, and have made a lot of progress in eliminating the banditry problem. The wood elves who live there have been helpful in this endeavor, particularly when it comes to informing on the various greenskin raids that pass through the area.
Location Name: Quala Freelands[edit source]
The Quala Freelands are the portion of Quala outside of the control of the Empire, or any other nation. The region is home to several warring states, all fighting for control of the Quala Freelands. The area has a very rough reputation and lawlessness is common. However, the region is not quite as chaotic as it may seem. The independent state of Cikoni is one of the few that has managed to maintain some sort of order. Cikoni is run by a council of officials headed by a Consul. The council keeps the region from descending into complete mayhem. The other states in Quala Freelands are similar in their organization scheme. There is a Governor that rules the state in place of a single leader, and a hierarchy of officials below them. There's usually a sizable population of mercenaries and bandits that make their homes in these states. You've occasionally wondered if these freelancers wouldn't be better off under Ackkel or Zalan command, but the system seems to be working. At least until someone manages to seize power.

The pirates then travel north along the coast to drop anchor at the reef, where they escape on foot and walk onto the ships waiting off shore. The pirates then flee to pre-arranged drop off points in Quala or Arat, and the ships escape back to their base in some unlisted place in Stratem.

It also has the ability to fire a beam of concussive energy, knocking people down to give them a mild headache. The wonder of Ux is so advanced that it has one major flaw: it is extremely complex. It requires an advanced degree to safely operate it. Thus, it has never been used for military purposes.
Location Name: The City of Kelium[edit source]
The City of Kelium is a sprawling metropolis situated in the southern desert. It is the capital of the Empire. The desert nomads who live in the area often times raid the city, due to its large amount of unprotected targets, but the military force there keeps them in check. The current ruler, Emperor Poggle the Lesser, has not made many advancements in technology. He has instead focused on the well being of his people. He provides food, water, and homes to all citizens, as well as an extensive social services system. He also keeps the standard of living high. His military force consists mainly of tanks, which the Empire developed in their factory in the city. They also created giant humanoid combat robots, or 'Goliaths', for their military. The Goliaths are extremely effective in battle, and have only gotten more advanced since their inception. The most important improvement was the addition of a giant external platform, from which the machine can fire ranged weaponry. This platform can also act as a place for the operator to hide and snipe. In the past decades, the desert has become much less of a threat. The easy availability of gasoline and other forms of transportation made the camels and other forms of transport unnecessary. The nomads were also dealt a heavy blow when Ol' Snout the Destroyer killed him in battle and took his territory. He was a mighty beast, and it is unlikely that any successor will be able to restore the position of the Ugly Son of Sam. The only remaining threats are the Enclave and the Lost Tribe, both of which have been dealt a heavy blow as well. Only time will tell if the south will be tamed.
Location Name: The Lost Tribe[edit source]
The Lost Tribe is a mysterious group of people living in the arctic. They base themselves in an abandoned mining camp in the frozen tundra. They are led by an enigmatic figure known as 'Father'. From what has been gathered, the Lost Tribe is an isolated group of people. They have a very different way of life to the people of Ux. They do not use currency, for example. Instead, they give goods and services in the form of 'gifts'. It is believed that the tribe came to be in the arctic after an ancient underground civilization collapsed there due to global warming. The Lost Tribe's main mode of transport is aeroplanes, which are rare due to the cold weather making them unable to take off. The tribe is also known to have access to a powerful airship, the 'Battleship Goliath', which was once pursued by an airship from the Empire. The Empire airship's nose blew off during the pursuit, causing it to crash into the tundra, where it was soon destroyed by the effects of the cold.
Location Name: Sunken city of Tuhs[edit source]
The sunken city of Tuhs is a large sea city that was destroyed by an unknown event. It was the largest city on the continent, and its disappearance was a great mystery. The entire city is submerged underwater, and only the highest buildings can be seen. A large section of the city has crumbled away, exposing the intricate architecture that lies underneath. The rest of the city is filled with water, although a large portion of it has dried up and preserved the city intact. A large plateau that sits beneath the city can only be accessed by diving underwater and swimming through a series of small flooded corridors. It is unknown what caused the city to sink, although many have theorized. One theory suggests that it was a massive explosion that turned the city into an underwater ruin. Another theory suggests that an event similar to the one that destroyed Sodran, occurred, although on a much larger scale. The only certainty is that the city was completely submerged underwater, and all of its citizens were killed. It is perhaps appropriate that the city has become a forgotten place, as it lies on the border between the living and the dead. A local necromancer, by the name of Draven, has made his home here. He is known to conduct experiments on the city's inhabitants, in an attempt to turn them into undead thralls. To get to Tuhs, one must dive underwater and swim in a particular direction. If you keep swimming, you'll eventually reach a large plateau that resembles a construction site. From there, it's fairly simple to find the ruins.
Location Name: Jungle of Claws[edit source]
The Jungle of Claws is a large jungle located far to the east of the known continent. It is inhabited by fierce warrior tribes that fight with deadly poisons using polearms, light armor and a variety of daggers. At least one tribe has been known to use firearms. There is no record of any other intelligent races inhabiting this land, although there is evidence of beasts prowling through the forest that are larger than any known animal on the continent.
Location Name: Lost island of Leshan[edit source]
The lost island of Leshan is a small landmass found far to the east of the known continent. It has a very low population density, and is filled with strange examples of technology from another age. Many bizarre gadgets have been found there, from mechanical dragons to humanoid robots. The island is inhabited by a strange race of people who are almost 7 feet tall with pale white skin. They have large black eyes, and generally look like they are perpetually startled. Surprisingly, they are friendly towards explorers and visitors to the island.
Location Name: Abandoned airship The Storm[edit source]
The airship The Storm is an old generation ship, and as a result it only carries a small crew to operate it. As such, it carries spare engineers who are not on duty at the moment. The airship is known to carry at least one doctor and a handful of soldiers, although it's possible more are on board.
Location Name: Lost city of Thonburi[edit source]
The city of Thonburi is situated in a large, shallow lake, and as a result has a large population of waterbreathing tribals. The city is known to be the home of the red perch tribe.
Location Name: The Cloudsend Mines[edit source]
The mines of the Cloudsend are a large, active mine situated in a mountain. The mine is filled with dangerous gases, wild animals and worse. The population of the mines are the Cloud Send work crews, all of whom are experienced and very skilled at their job.
Location Name: The Island of Mortos[edit source]
The island of Mortos, much like its namesake, is known as a sacred place to followers of the dark arts. This includes necromancers, who make up a large contingent of the island's inhabitants. The necromancers of Mortos are known to perform experiments on the island, looking for ways to extend life, or to raise the dead. Necromancers from all over the world visit the island, and it is here that plans to construct a permanent branch of the Necromantic College are currently being made.
Location Name: The Storm Keep[edit source]
The Storm Keep is the name by which the Airship works is known. It is crewed by a group of many different races, who all serve the Empire for different reasons. It's likely that the airship is capable of going to other places in the world, but it never does, as the crew members prefer to live in their comfortable vessel.
Location Name: The Flame Delve[edit source]
The Flame Delve is the official name of the large mine in which your company has stationed itself. The mine is under the complete control of your company, and it consists of several miles of abused underground tunnels. The mine is inhabited by worker dark elves and a few guards. The dwarves have their own mine just a few miles from the Flame Delve, and so your company generally shares its dwarves with them. The miners of the Flame Delve are an unruly group.
Location Name: The Crucible of Worlds[edit source]
The Crucible of Worlds is a planetouched city, home to the planetouched race known as the Worldbringers. It is the capital of the former Empire of Oren, now known as the World Tree Dominion. The city consists mainly of two sprawling zones, The Hanger and The Hive, which are separated by a security wall. The Hanger is the zone where most citizens work. It consists mainly of factories and craft shops. Certain vehicles, such as war machines or spaceships, are manufactured here. The Hive is where most Worldbringers live and form their government. It consists of giant, towering buildings known as Silos. They are the residences of the Worldbringers, as well as their governmental and bureaucratic buildings. There is one giant Silo for every ten Worldbringers, allowing each to have a minimum of one hundred thousand inhabitants. The entire Silo can beoccupied by the populace. The guards on watch along the wall are always vigilant, and male Worldbringers are required to serve in the military, which consists of all male Worldbringers, at least twenty-four years of age. Females are permitted to serve, but very rarely, and only in administrative or medical roles. The military is divided into several departments:
- The Department of Air makes sure that all flying creatures are registered and taxed.
- The Department of Water keeps an eye out for pirates and other evildoers who would attempt to steal water, one of the most precious resources on the planet.
- The Department of Land and Minerals oversees the gathering of various gemstones, precious metals and other resources needed to fuel the economy.
- The Department of Public Safety keeps the peace. Its main duty is to ensure the safety of all Worldbringer citizens, and its members are trained to be crack shots. * The Department of Recruitment handles the enlistment and training of new military members.
- The Department of War is the main military branch of the World Tree Dominion, and its sole purpose is to secure the safety of Worldbringers. It also provides protection for the other departments listed above. The lowest rank among the military is that of private. Soldiers are promoted to corporal, sergeant and eventually captain after years of honorable service. Worldbringer soldiers are assigned by Department of War, and not by any individual, making them unable to resign their position.
Location Name: The Magnificent Mistery of Myx[edit source]
The Myx are a race of beings native to the island of Myx, which lies to the south of the continent of Auvah. The island is covered with jungle, and only a few scattered populated areas, one of which is the city of Myx. A strange, unearthly language is spoken on the island, which can only be heard by those with the ability to hear it. Myx citizens have a reputation for being light-hearted and carefree, but also for revelry, drunkenness and other activities that are frowned upon on other parts of the continent. The Myx are a humanoid race covered with scales that give them a reptilian appearance. They have one slitted eye that functions like a cat's that is white in color, and two normal eyes. There eye slits are placed above their mouths, giving them a snout like a lizard. The Myx have three pairs of arms, though they use only their lower pair for wielding weapons. They also have a pair of legs, though they tend to stand on their tails to conserve their energy. The scales on their bodies varies from individuals: some are almost hairless, while others have very thick, dense fur. The Myx have no genitalia, and instead release their seed into a sac that hangs between their legs. They are known to wear jewelry in this area, which they refer to as a "penis". The Myx have a culture that centers around music. They play a variety of instruments, which they have not written down for other races to know. Any Myx that hears your composition will give you a "reading" of the result, which will be provided after their well known alcoholic drink, the Myxamaze, has taken affect. The Myx have a set of values that they live by. The most important of these is "Kapla", which is roughly translated as "virtues" or "goodness". The Myx do not believe in money, instead they use Kapla points to bet on events. For example, one might bet ten kapla points that you will win an arm-wrestling match. If you do so, they will give you ten points, and you will gain ten points. Another might bet that you will lose an arm-wrestling match, in which case they will lose ten points. Kapla points are awarded for deeds or achieved through other means, such as gambling. When the Myx are composing a story, they begin by getting Kapla points from all the major characters. This is represented by a coin being thrown into the air. The point value of the coin represents how "important" the character is in the story. For example, if the coin lands on heads, they will award the Kapla points to the main character. Tail. Either of the two minor characters, each of whom will receive nine points. After this, other minor characters are introduced, and the coin is tossed to see which ones get nine points. Finally, every other character that appears in the story will be awarded a one point coin. After the story is written down, the Myx read it to see if it is worthwhile to continue or not.
The Myx also have a general dislike of the concept of "runes". Runes are thought to be magic symbols that can cast powerful spells, despite the fact that they are simply made up. This concept can be seen in your own "runes" in the shape of the symbol for the magic missile spell. The Myx will never accept them as a way of payment, and will even attempt to rip them off of you if they think they can get away with it. The Myx value their time more than anything, and will worktrade with you if it benefits them in some way. There are some Myx that live underground, and they always prefer the company of other Myx. They are smaller than their surface dwelling cousins, and tend to have a greenish tint to their scales. They prefer to wear no clothing, and have large wings on their backs that do not seem to be related to flying. The Myx have a few predators such as the Dwarven Sprog, who dig them up and devour them, and the Slaaneeshi worshippers of the Dark Arts, who hunt them for their magical qualities.
Location Name: Love city of Trelik[edit source]
Trelik is a medium-sized city notorious for its brothels. It is situated on the shores of the Sea of Silt, and many races tend to have a presence there. The city is run by a council of five halfbreed Succubi, who rule over it in an intricate system of pecking order. They are the top of the food chain, and as such they enforce their will upon humans, who in turn have to do what the council says. Trelik is known to have one of the most efficient and least corrupt governments in Quala. Because everyone is sexually controlled by the Succubi, there are no personal greed or envy, only lust. Loyalty orgies are programmed on a daily basis and the administration runs smoothly while sex flows all over the city in its multiple love hotels, sex coliseums and brothels. The Love Hotel where the council holds its meetings is quite luxurious. Although the city is run by halfbreeds, the citizens there are actually very proud of it. The main street of Trelik is called the Succubus Street, which is a wide road where all races live side by side in harmony.
Location Name: Baroness island[edit source]
The Baroness island is a small island located not far from the continent. It is made up of a lot of villages, all of which focus on sex trade to some degree. These include brothels, swingers' clubs and gambling spots. The island is controlled by a madam known as "The Baroness" who imposes severe restrictions on the population. Freelance prostitution is illegal, and it is extremely difficult to get a license to open a brothel. Any citizen caught selling sex can be sentenced to death. The island is also the home of a large swingers' community, with a number of swing clubs and resorts.
Location Name: The land of film[edit source]
The sexual ethic in the land is something that has been forgotten about. Sex is no longer considered a sin, and religion no longer plays a major role in most people's lives. It is now the world's largest producer of pornographic films, with several companies specialising in erotica, including Blissfully Sinful Pictures, Sensual Encounters, and Eternal Passion. There is some minor controversy due to the fact that it is believed that the government has a hand in picking which companies get movie deals. A small group of anarchists has formed in response that believe the government should abandon all duties and allow all pornographic films to flood the market. They call themselves "free-marketers". (The rest of the country is too worried about this threat that they allow the government to take complete control of all media. This puts an end to all censorship issues.) The Erotica League, a group of businessmen who have complete control over the media, are also worried about the threat posed by the free-marketers. In response, they have established their main editorial offices in the city of Lourdstone. One of their top editors, Rita Goodfist, has stated that they plan to make Lourdstone the "New Hollysex." Sex is no longer a tool of the devil; it is now something good. Birth control is no longer frowned upon; it is encouraged. Abortion is no longer murder; it is a way of life. Divorce is no longer seen as a betrayal; it is now seen as a sign of weakness. And the government? Well, the government is now just a tool to ensure the continued happiness of the people, and should itself be run in a way that does not upset the people's delicate sexual balances. There is a rebellion brewing in Lourdstone, and it is going to sweep its problems aside. It is currently unknown what will happen in this region.
Location Name: The kingdom of climax[edit source]
The kingdom of climax is a kingdom that holds the sexual promise of release. It is a place where all activities involving the genitalia lead to some form of climax. That may include simple things such as fondling, oral sex, anal sex, and all other activities involving the genitals. In the kingdom of climax, everything is heightened. The senses are stronger and more acute, so that the smallest touch can lead to massive electrical blasts of ecstasy or the sweet whispers of desire. The kingdom is ruled by an Emperor who has multiple forms of sexual prowess. The most common and easiest to achieve is the ability to make any woman climax simply by touching them, which is known as the Emperor's Touch. This is not the only form of the Emperor's sexual prowess, but it is the easiest to achieve and the most common. The second, more difficult to achieve form of the Emperor's sexual prowess is to possess total recall of any experience one has had in their life. This includes all forms of pleasure. The third, extremely rare form of sexual prowess is the ability to control the minds of others. The fourth, almost impossible to achieve, is the ability to grant any wish to another person. The Emperor has only had four of these sexual prowesses, and he has shared them with only a handful of people.
Location Name: Sinkhole[edit source]
Sinkhole is a miserable village built into a limestone sinkhole. The land around it is flat and, if not for the rocky outcroppings, would be wide open to the desert. The only viable settlement in the area, Sinkhole is the only place too which travelers from other areas can travel without a four-day trek. The village itself is nothing impressive. The houses are all made of mud and stone, with palm leaves serving as roofs. There is a large, central town square in the village center, although it regularly gets flooded when it's raining. The entrance to the village is a simple hole in the ground, which goes down more than one level. The bottom level is the entryway, and it's on this level that travelers disembark. The ground level is where the villagers live and do their everyday activities. The second level goes much deeper into the sinkhole, and it's on this level that the limestone caves stretch out, connecting one cave to another. The third level goes even deeper into the limestone, this is where the mines are located. The mines extend out enough that a person could easily step outside and walk around. The people of Sinkhole are simple folk. They maintain the open air shops and work, although the men often work in the mines as well. The people maintain a barter system, exchanging goods and services with each other. They are religious, praying to Garlen. This is done in the form of chanting and songs, which are repeated ad nauseum. Many a traveler passing through the area has complained that the songs are unbearably loud and annoying. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as slavery in Sinkhole. The people are free. The major threats in the area are the Su-monkeys and the Wister Wolves.
Location Name: The Griffin stand[edit source]
The Griffin stand is a series of cliffs south of Sinkhole. The stand consists of three cliffs, which all average around four hundred feet in height. Sometimes, a griffin will stand atop one of the cliffs, surveying the surrounding area. They are a common sight, and most inhabitants of Sinkhole have seen at least one. The griffin is a creature of great beauty. Its gold feathers blend perfectly with the golden sands of the desert, and when it flies, it almost looks as if the very sky and sand are moving. Each of the cliffs is home to a single griffin, and they all share a bond with each other. If one falls in battle, the others will do everything in their power to assist in its survival. If that means moving a rock or two, or even chipping away at the cliff, the rest of the griffin clan will do it.
Location Name: The flooded savanna of Enler[edit source]
The savanna of Enler is a large area in the southern part of the continent. It stretches from the low lying eastern coastline to the edge of the great desert. It is bordered to the east by the Usksha Desert and to the south by the Kalah Desert. The terrain is barren and mostly flat, although it does slope downward in some parts. A large river runs through the middle of the savanna, although it is mostly a dry river bed most of the year. A small village, Dokkrus, is situated on the southern banks of the river. The savanna is currently experiencing an extreme period of rainfall; it started two months ago and there is no end in sight. The river is flooding, and most of the inhabitants of Dokkrus have been evacuated to higher ground.
Location Name: The flooded grassland of Chaest[edit source]
The grassland known as Chaest is one of the least inhabitated parts of the continent. It is a large area where several small grasslands and farming villages merge to form one mass of grassland. It is bordered on the east by the River Cha and on the west by the vast ocean. It is bordered on the south by the city of Nakol, which shares a border, and on the north by the Steppe. It is prone to flooding from the Cha during periods of heavy rain, and almost all inhabitants of the continent have heard rumors of the Flying Monkeys that dwell here, although no one has ever seen them. It is also home to the most desolate lake in the known world.
Location Name: The Chaest gap[edit source]
The Chaest gap is an enormous sinkhole located along the southern border of the Grasslander territory. It is the result of a prolonged period of heavy rainfall melting underground glacial ice causing a massive sinkhole to form. It has been slowly growing for unknown years, and it is already considerable in size. It is still growing, with reports stating that it has doubled in size over the past few weeks. As it grows, entire villages are being washed into the Sinkhole, and nobody knows how to stop it. It is known to be inhabited by many dangerous beasts and monsters, although nobody has actually seen them.
Location Name: The Nakol frontier[edit source]
The Nakol frontiers are the borders shared by the Nakol Kingdom and the Flying Griffon Empire. They are not clearly defined, as both sides are constantly pushing forward and regrouping to gain more territory. The Nakol front is currently the most active, as both empires are locked in a border war. The Nakol Kingdom is better known for its trading and seafaring abilities, but it has increasingly been proving itself to be a capable military power as well. It has not yet engaged in any major conquest, but its territory is the farthest south that it has ever been, and Griffon's elite Nakol shock warriors have had to retreat back to their own territory after making a couple of raids as far south as the Flying Griffon's own territory. The Nakol frontier consists mostly of rolling plains, although a small forest or two can be found here and there.
Location Name: Jicol[edit source]
A mixture of farmlands, lightly forested areas, mountains and coastline. Due to the presence of the Jicol Watch, who maintain order over the area, there is a much lower crime rate than, say, in most cities.
The city's primary export is firearms, specializing in the manufacturing of muskets and pistols. Many sailors hail from Jicol, as the city has many shipyards and produces large amounts of sailcloth and rope. Jicol is also a center of education, producing many learned men and women who contribute to the city's research and writing. Jicol is experiencing a population boom. This can be attested to by the constant construction which goes on in the city. The government has recently started constructing a series of walkways on top of the existing buildings, so that people don't have to live like insects nor endure the constant risk of flooding that comes with having so many homes made of brick.
The Jicol Watch is the successor to the Celestial Order and the private police of Jicol. It maintains a sizable fleet of ships that patrol the harbor, docks and waterways of the city. The Watch is run by a governing body of five, each headed by a captain. The five captains in turn are under the authority of the Mayor of Jicol, who acts as both head of the Jicol Watch and head of the city's government.
Location Name: The sinking swamp[edit source]
The sinking swamp is home to several species. The swamp is a treacherous environment, and few would want to live here for any extended period of time, let alone claim it as their own. The swamps are inhabited by large numbers of hags, zombies, hobgoblins, ogres and giants, none of whom are well liked by anyone. The landscape is experiencing a reduction in trees, with the increase in undergrowth and marshlands. This is probably because the whole area is slowly sinking into the ground, and has been for centuries.
Location Name: The Elven Kingdom of Antiloch[edit source]
The Elven Kingdom of Antiloch is not actually a kingdom, but rather a collection of villages. It is lead by Eldolith Green Wizards, and is one of the last bastions of the Elves who refuse to bow down to the Necromancer Lord. The villages are slowly becoming smaller as the Elves refuse to settle in one place for too long, and instead constantly travel between the few locations they consider home. The villages are also suffering from the reduced amount of trees due to the swamp, as most elves dislike even being outside for too long. The swamps are also causing a large amount of mud, and as such the elven capital is suffering from an increase in dirt and mud-based diseases, including a few instances of the dreaded Turgen fever.
The hidden city of the genies is a city that exists on the surface of a small island. It is ruled by a council of five sultry-looking women who each rule a portion of the city. The city is composed of five districts, palace, barracks, armory, library and domestic quarter. The women of the council are known as the Sultry Sisters, and are the only ones allowed to enter the city. All other citizens of the city must register and obey to one of five jobs: scholar, soldier, blacksmith, jeweler or doctor. If they refuse, they are classed as a traitor and are executed. The island was once the home of a race of magical beings, the Yer'kel, known by everyone as the genies. The genies were crass and wasteful beings who used up all of the natural resources of the land in mere centuries. This angered the Lady of the Lake, the godess of the lake, who cursed the genies to become ethereal and trapped them within the bodies of their desert-dwelling slaves. The genies protested their exile, but could not do anything. The Lady of the Lake decreed that every thousand years, one of the genie bodies would be released from its ethereal prison of her to oversee the desert. One night, the sultry sisters simply vanished from their bedrooms. The next day, sailors reported seeing an island emerge from the waters. By the end of the week, this island had a large city with sprawling districts and towering buildings. This island is the result of one of the genies. The entire island is a giant magical experiment, with each building and district linked to generate and draw upon the power of the lake. To this day, the entire island generates a powerful aura that can be detected from great distances.
Faction Name: The hypnotizing army[edit source]
The hypnotizing army are a group fanatical in their views, totally loyal to their mysterious leader, and willing to do whatever he commands. Little is known about him, other than he is a mage of great power and ability. He uses his magic to inspire tremendous fear and loyalty in others, which has resulted in him being feared and hated everywhere he goes. His forces are powerful but unorganized, and consist mainly of mercenaries, thugs and other unsavory types. They are so called, as their leader use hypnosis to gain control over the minds of other beings. Is rumored that the army is looking for bigger objectives, the court advisers are going to be hypnotized.
Location Name: Female hips' Altar[edit source]
The female hips' altar is believed to be somewhere in the kingdom of Alzur. It is dedicated to a deity called Maara, who is known to bless females with fertility and offspring. It is commonly accepted that any woman who goes to the altar will become pregnant as a result of her visit. There are numerous tales told about Maara, all of which are believed to be true. The most interesting tale concerns Maara's banishment to the mortal realm. Once, Maara was a glorious goddess who ruled over an entire empire of Elves, Orcs and Men. One day, a war broke out between her worshippers and those of another god. In the heat of battle, Maara's followers refused to give ground and they fought to the death, so she banished them from her empire for being reckless. The Men, Orcs and Elves who were banished all became disgusted with Maara's pacifism and her followers were persecuted for many years to come. Eventually, the pacifist worshippers found a home in the lands known as Alzur. They worshiped Maara and eventually started a nation dedicated to her. Citizens from other lands were always welcomed to visit and many chose to do so. A portal to visit the altar can be found in the throne room of King Hanch, where Maara is worshipped. The portal will transport you to a landing zone, where a carriage with two knights will be waiting to escort you to the city of Alzur.
Location Name: Firbolg highlands[edit source]
The villages in the highlands are very small, typically consisting of fewer than 100 people, and the lifestyle is simple. The people are short and stocky, with green or brown fur. They are fiercely independent, and often cruelty is treated as a legitimate form of entertainment. The highlands are also home to the infamous firbolg, creatures that resemble humans with green skin and a short, stocky body. They are hated and feared throughout the land, and are rarely encountered other than in a hostile manner. The most infamous of these highland barbarian tribes are the barbarian tribes of the Red Blade Band. These groups are lead by a chieftain known as the Chief. Most of them follow the Red Blade Religion, which worships the god Ghinichell. The chief's symbol is a red blade with a straight edge and point, resembling a sword. The chief's title is not hereditary, instead being earned through combat and trophy taking.
Location Name: Nicodemus' realm[edit source]
Nicodemus' realm is a nightmarish landscape of twisted metal and burning lava. robotic automatons patrol the unbending, and an ominous tower looms in the distance. Strange creatures roam the unbending, and great pits of burning magma spew fire and molten rock. The atmosphere itself is extremely hostile to mortals, who cower in terror at the mere sight of it. It is generally believed by those who study Necromancy that Necromancers do not create their own realms, but rather inhabit an already existing one. This is certainly the case with Nicodemus'. The landscape is certainly designed in a way that would befit a realm housing creatures such as demons and ghosts.
Location Name: Nicodemus night ritual[edit source]
In Nicodemus there is an annual event during which the denizens of Nicodemus' realm engage in a massive orgy. The act itself has a powerful effect on the rituals, and several warlocks and witches engage in the orgy to increase their magic energies. The ritual is said to take place in a large structure made of ice, located on a mountain of the same name. The mountain is only approachable through a single tunnel, which is situated in Nicodemus' realm.
Location Name: The Hanging Trees[edit source]
The Hanging Trees are a group of three unusual trees, situated in the southwest corner of Nicodemus' realm. Their exact nature and origin are unknown, but they're generally believed to be magical in nature. One tree is in the middle and the other two trees are hanging off of it. The tree hanging off to the left is shorter than the tree hanging off to the right, and the tree in the middle is higher than both. The trees are thought to be able to support up to ten thousand pounds. Attempts to climb the trees do so have always resulted in failure. Those who have tried to scale the trees to get at the chain have always failed, as the tree trunks are too smooth to grip. The trees are not the only unusual feature about them. The trunks of the trees (and, apparently, the entirety of the trees) are completely black, which is rare for trees. Moreover, there are small pores at the bases of each of the three trunks. Black sap oozes out of each of these pores when hit by a weapon or, strangely, when one just touches the tree.
The area around the trees is also host to several dark secrets. To the west, high on a hill, is a house which, at one time, was green. Now, it's faded to a deep shade of blue that almost appears purple. It is the home of a mad man who worships the devil, as he claims, and who has made several attempts to bring the trees down, as they are a corrupting influence on the land. The man has made several bindings, spikes, and walls around them. None have worked, however. The trees are tied to the ground by a mysterious chain and are not harmed, as they can be seen still growing.
Location Name: Free will Freelands[edit source]
A collection of several massive, unclaimed, inhospitable plains interspersed by miles of dense, uncharted jungle. At one time, this land was the location of several small kingdoms, but as the years passed, these petty rulers could not agree on a single border, and so nothing was done. The jungle is not only a dangerous place to travel through, but also impenetrable by man. Several large beasts and jungle tribesmen make their homes there, and the inhabitants are known to be fiercely territorial and aggressive. Tribal shaman rule their domains with an iron fist, and any who defy them are stripped of their free will and transformed into one of their service. There are rumors of the few remaining shadowrun survivors having found a way through the jungle and into the Freelands, but these rumors have yet to be proven.

The oldest and largest of the known slave cities, this place is ruled by Master Ebon with an iron fist. There is a fortress-like wall surrounding the city, and it is even protected by a small squadron of soldiers. The city is very large and sprawling, and it reportedly holds several forts, barracks, prisons, torture chambers, and even its own hospital. There are also severalk blood gladiators who fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses. Due to the near-total lack of magic here, most shadows would be incapable of performing shadow magic here.
Location Name: Galpatis[edit source]
A rather large city that is a melting pot of many different cultures. It is a trading city with merchants coming and going throughout all parts of the continent. The city is a bit more prosperous than some of the other locations, which has resulted in an increase in magical abilities. There are even rumors of a few magic item merchants. There isn't a large slaver population here, but there are those that do slave trade and it's not uncommon to see them in the company of merchants.
Location Name: Delantium[edit source]
A war-zone. This is the only major city in the kingdom of Delantium, and it's also the only one with protective walls. Unfortunately, the kingdom's so-called "protective" magic is faltering, and is in need of fixing. It's also suffering from a dire government corruption, with the military and government officials taking bribes and kickbacks. The kingdom is run by a king (or queen? It's not exactly clear what gender leaders are here), though it's not a very efficient form of government.
Location Name: Beluath Hot Springs[edit source]

The immortal beings consist of a number of succubi, who have taken the forms of waitresses, club owners, prostitutes and various others. The succubi take advantage of the loneliness of the mortal inhabitants of the town. Any visitor of the resort is available for the taking, if you can survive a demanding infernal partner, the succubi are all yours.
Location Name: Blood Bath Mountains[edit source]
Blood Bath Mountains is a collection of five connected extinct volcanoes, which are rising out of the blood-red sand. They are connected by steep slopes, making it impossible to climb them without protective gear. A stream of lava snakes across the landscape, with blood-red smoke billowing out behind it. Any creature that passes through the mountains first undergoes a ritual sacrifice. The creatures are strapped to a large rock, and their blood is drained to a cauldron at the side of the volcano. During the sacrifice, a demonologist chants, while other demons add their own energy to the ritual. The mountain is barren, with no vegetation to act as a sacrifice and a conveniently placed altar to perform the ritual upon.
Location Name: Ormeng magnetic field[edit source]
Ormeng is a small island with a permanent field of magnetism. It is not actually populated, but it is host to a large number of scientific research facilities.
