The Lintudoma is an area in the southern part of Western Agia. It's a barren land with absolutely nothing except burnt ground and burnt trees. There are one town and one village in this barren land, but they have long since been abandoned. What is left of the town and the village is but ruins of houses and broken things.
The terrain is barren, vegetation haven't grown here for a thousand years, except for a few rivers that runs from the hills and though a part of the Lintudoma where some vegetation can grow close to water. The area stretches several kilometres wide with absolutely nothing of worth, unless you find barren land, dead trees, and lightening-storms that most certainly will kill you exciting. Since the waste stretches for such a long distance, water is scarce and that makes the land dry with no hope to cultivate.
During lightening-storms, the waste is being constantly hit by lightening, though no one can explain why, since it's the only area that receives such massive lightening in all of Western Agia. Scholars have discussed the ground might be warmer due to a catastrophe about a thousand years ago. Whenever the cool air meets the warm air that rises from the ground these lightening-storms will happen, but it's a quite recent theory and have not yet been proven.
According to the Book of Irath, this land used to be very fertile with people travelling through. But the day the Goddesses died, Rathias sent out a storm of chaos and fire, which killed anything within miles of the town where they supposedly died in. Both the Goddess of Light, Irath and her sister, the Goddess of Dark, Rathias, was killed by the Dynbodaul Cailan. For several years no one dared to have anything to do with the land since it was believed to be cursed, and the powers of the Goddesses were not for a ordinary person to be close to. Even the most curious scholars, who otherwise earned the ire from the church in other ways, never found the courage to travel to this land. Two countries have their boundaries across the Lintudoma; Estain and Fundras. And while they have a smaller discussion of who actually own the Lintudoma, none dare to start a war centred in this region because of the danger. Of course the value of this land can also be discussed, because the only thing of worth in this region is the prospect of this being the place where the goddesses died. A few centuries declared Estain war against the Yppwenlas and Aistana because of the rumour that the Aistanian Yppwenlas killed the late Estainian Yppwenlasto gain the chair. The King and his council used Lintudoma as an excuse to move the Seat of the Yppwenlas to Estain, because Estain had the last resting place of the goddesses, and therefore made Estain more appropriate as the religious centre.
While some venture to seek out ways to make the land more fertile, yet none have succeeded, others do it for thrill seeking. Some have this absurd idea to see who can survive the longest in the Lintudoma, but since I don't have time to count idiots, I have no idea how many have succeeded for how many days.
I beg of you, do not be an idiot and venture to this forsaken place. It is not worth it, unless you seek an untimely death.
