The low moor near the center of the Cerulean Wood never seemed to be a danger to the nearby villages. Called merely “the Sump” by locals, it was home to a small tribe of bullywugs that were mostly harmless.

The heat of the Ashen Plains will drain the life out of you, if the salamanders and formians don’t get to you first.

Somewhere in the forest, not so deep that it won’t be found nor so close to the edge that it gets a lot of traffic, you may come across this burbling stream. On a small rise to the north lie the ruins of an old tower, its stone walls crumbling under the weight of time.
When the nomadic tribes of the western reach come together at their field moots, they choose to conduct business on neutral ground marked by great meeting-houses. One such site is the House of the Sun Dragon, first established by the wise Halkassan the Peacemaker hundreds of years ago.
Its means of construction was never revealed, but many years ago the mystic sage and scholar Alstor established the mountain observatory on the remote peak that bears his name. At first he was alone, but over time he assembled a small group of acolytes that shared his thirst for knowledge and quite contemplation.
