These southern lands are home to tangled brushlands and legends of tall, powerful warriors who eat the flesh of their victims. The stark, black cliffs of the southeast and the giant trees of its southern island seem to add credence to the tales - as do the gigantic artefacts avilable in the markets along the coasts.
The island to the south of the region is home to large lizards whose skins bring great prices in the north, often sold as dragon hide along with their long, hollow teeth.
Few people venture inland, but there are settlements along the southern coasts where settlers from lands east and north have cut out a precarious living from the sea and as stops along the east-west trade routes by sea.
The coasts are rocky and treacherous, and the cliffs high in most areas, so sea travel here is left to the experienced proffessional - or the fool.
