The Cradle of Civilization
Arjin is the cradle of civilization and the continent on which the people of the Trifolk Alliance (better known as the Kykr) rule supreme. It is a huge continent, with multiple geographical biomes and wildly varying terrain and weather. Despite its size only about half of Arjins surface is habitable, or at least comfortably so. A very large portion of the continent is dominated by two gigantic mountain ridges, one stretching from the south and curves northwards, forming the inner western coast. It is met by the other mountain ridge that stretches across the continent in the east-westwards direction. Only a small pass allows safe travels across them, just north of the Kfandr Bay. The mountains have a myriad of names in different countries, languages and dialects. But most can agree on calling the north-south mountain the Spineridge (Hragrfell in Ósleiðr) and the west-eastern mountain Næka, named after the tribes of mountain-dwellers living on the plateaus in the kingdom of Hakr'Næka. The Kfandr bay is as close to paradise as you can get, with vast lands of arable land, rivers, forests and lakes providing ample amount of food and natural resources for the people living there. The mountains have a decent amount of minerals in them, primarily copper and silver. The more rarer and valuable iron is found on the very northeastern shores of the country, in the sediments of the Blood Sea, called so for its reddish tint. From the Kfandr bay one can travel westwards into a region called the Morvátian Peninsula, where the morvátian people reside. It's almost as amiable as the Kfandr bay, though in the Southern Fields of Irdar it can get relatively hot in summers, and in the north of Kingdom of Khol-Chatal, called the Outlands, it gets absolutely freezing in winters. Traveling east from the Kfandr bay brings you into the pleasant Gimroan Basin, home to the gimroan peoples. The Gimroan basin is likely the most fertile area of the entire continent, housing several huge rivers and grand swaths of forests and grass plains. To the south of the Gimroan basin there's just miles and miles upon miles of open plains where a multitude of nomadic animals graze and migrate. These are the Great Plains of Kimaru where the kharamôrian people reside. Further south through the plains will eventually take you you to the Kimaran Desert and the jungles of Tabut-Heda.
