Geography

The sole continent available to players was an un-named landmass, that was known of by the various kingdoms and rulers of the races. Many more continents and other landmasses existed, which were home to the Empire and other powerful factions.

To the north, the icy wastes stretched. Here, the Dwarves made their first home and the multitude of smaller mountains often became mining outposts.

In the east, the ice quickly turned into swamp lands. Scores of islands were dotted around an area of the sea, some hosting strange flora, others becoming home to terrifying beasts. The Kobolds made their home here.

In the west, grasslands and forests merged into a lush countryside, the Elves made their home in the south-western corner of the continent, growing their forest paradise.

The middle section of the continent held the sole desert of the world; a relatively small stretch of sand that became the home of a few stragglers from various backgrounds.

The Iron Mountains dominated the southern part of the world; a large, plateauing section of stone that was rich in coal and iron, hence the name. The Humans would come to rely on this source of iron to arm their soldiers and, on occasion, the Dwarves would venture down there in force, to bolster their supplies with the easily found ores. The Human town of Southbridge was nestled at the southern end of the mountain range.
