The Etasoru Badlands: The Etasoru Badlands are located on the south western edge of the western landmass. It is an area of hazardous rocky outcroppings and sudden deep canyons. It is an area prone to earth quakes and rock slides and almost completely devoid of both water and life. Those who travel and dare the Badlands are few and far between. Many who make the attempt die of dehydration or are killed by the very few, but extremely deadly, creatures that make their homes in the rocky mountains and crevices of the Badlands. Those few who survive and even repeat such excursions are said to be the greatest of adventurers and dare devils. Sadly this has also given many a young person the ill fated idea of making their ill planned trek through the Badlands to prove themselves. Many of these young people are never seen again.
Klehuf: Located in the very heart of the Etasoru Badlands lies the city of Klehuf. It is located around a very deep canyon in which can be found the only water that runs naturally through the badlands themselves. The citizens of this city spend a great deal of their time scaling up and down the walls of this vast canyon to bring back buckets of water which are used not only to drink but grow what little food will come from such dry soil. Klehuf at first appears to be a disheveled heap of abandoned buildings, but once in side one can see that it is a place constantly alive, even at night. The buildings are all made of twisted black wood and rough shaped stones that look as though they are constantly being torn down and rebuilt giving the city the appearance of a temporary camp that has grown over time. Most of the people who live and work in Klehuf have spent their whole lives there. Most people will never leave, most of those who try never survive the journey, and those who do almost never return. Most of the people born in Klehuf will live their busy, hard lives and die in almost the exact same place they were born. Their bodies are usually buried cave tombs just outside the city.
Pontavini Cluster: The Pontavini Cluster is a rather large grouping of small cities and large towns nestled very close together on the edge of and nestled a jungle on one of the southern landmasses. The clusterís towns and cities all refuse to accept the rule of any of the gods but are also tolerant of the followers of all of them. A beautiful and open place the Pontavini Cluster is full of open markets, airy towns and friendly people. When push comes to shove however the people who settle in the Cluster will not tolerate outside war or coercion by the powerful Empires to accept any one group of gods. As such, all temples to any and all gods are only allowed in the large central city that serves as the Ďcapitalí of the Cluster.
Bythatreos: Hovering on the edge of a barren, icy, rocky land is Bythatreos, famous for itís reputation as a slum and safe haven for the worst kind of scum in the world. The exact location of the city is unknown to all except those who have been there, and those who have spent long periods of time are hesitant to reveal itís location because it would then cease to serve as a safe haven for their kind, the scum of the world. Bythatreos for those who can find the place and for those that wish to stay in a despicable place can find rowdy taverns, less than comfortable inns and decapitated market squares. Brawls and thievery are not only common on the streets of Bythatreos, but it is in fact considered unusual if there is a period of more than four hours in between eruptions of violence over one act of treachery or another.
