Lands of the Two Seas - Region
- Parent: Erdessa
Description: Two large inland seas mark the center of Erdessa: the Stormy Sea in the south and the Amber Sea to the north. Nestled around the Stormy Sea are the ancient civilizations that make up the region known as the Heartlands. It is here that each of the god’s chosen races claim to have originated. The diversity of cultures found here and the antiquity of their settlements gives weight to this claim. Traveling north from the Stormy Sea and through the towering Spine Mountains, one finds the lush forests, lakes and farmlands that make up the Northlands. These lands are colder and more forested than their southern counterparts and are less populated. The Three Kingdoms hold the line of human civilization along the southwestern edge of the Amber Sea. The elves have some of their oldest domains in primeval forests and mountain valleys to the northwest. The rest of the Northlands are held under the sway of the warlike peoples of Mitnar who live along the northern coast and the Galkrul Tribes of orcs who dominate the eastern wilderness. Finally the Empire of Thordex, recently annexed by the Cyran Empire, lies to the southwest of the Heartlands, menacing its neighbors on all sides. Many once independent lands make up the provinces of the ever expanding Empire.
