The Great Desert occupies much of the north central part of Mishtz̀azey. It has been present in all the ages but has expanded to the south over time, occasionally swallowing cities as it grows. The bulk of the desert is currently within the lands controlled by Nuerruoddel. However, given it's difficult nature, the desert usually doesn't gain much consideration, except when it becomes a source of problems. As such, raiders, bandits, and other such organizations have secret lairs hidden within the shifting sands.
