Largest of the continents and most diverse in ecology. There are mountains that run north to south on the eastern side like a jagged spine. Where a natural forming desert should be there is a lush, wild, and dangerous jungle. The jungles hie too many terrors that all who are smart have stayed away. In the northern valleys the many kingdoms dot the world like small torches in the cruel darkness. To the north eastern part of the mountains, on one of the largest and highest peaks a city of gold a rubies looms over watching all. The south has a city of rising rings protected by stone and magic, further east a city carved deep into the long dormant heart of a volcano. Sodrax is the center of power, but the Ember Queen, ruler of all keeps to herself but protects her borders.
