Isolated on Karneharte's east coast lies a large expanse of greenery. The Telkun mountain range separates this luscious rainforest from the rest of Karnehart's otherwise dry environment. Although the basin contains many strange and fascinating things, it is left mostly untouched by man. To the people of Karneharte, it is thought to be a holy site, the home of the gods. To those who take the risk of offending the gods in greed, they will find an arduous journey ahead of them.
Flora & Fauna
The ecology of Karneharte is vastly different than the rest of the world. This is perhaps most apparent within the Orin Basin. Large ferns and palms tower above the forest floor, small reptiles hidden amongst their foliage. Large, amphibious creatures lurk beneath the dark, muddy waters. Mammals are rare here and even birds are outcompeted by the reptiles that evolved to fill their niche. The Periken, for instance, glides through the trees catching insects with its long beak. Its wings, however, are not covered in feathers but are simply thick flaps of skin. Those traveling through the basin might try to use a tree to support them over the muddy ground, or to help pull themselves out of the thick waters. But they will find that the plants bend and break with their weight, without the hardy bark of most other plants to support them.
