If the heat doesn't kill ya, a sinkhole or hungry animal will.The Western island, this land was intentionally formed as a desert / arid region. It was crafted with individuals from similar environments in mind. There are both numerous settlements and ruined areas to explore.
Ukrix experiences hot and dry temperatures year round. Rain is scarce and most storms involve wind and sand. Temperatures fluctuate from high in the daytime, especially at noon, to near freezing at night. They are most stable along the coast compared to inland regions. None of the mountains are tall enough to experience snow.
The island is comprised mostly of flat stretches of desert and dry rocky soil. There are two mountain ranges: Taraka to the West and Raglet to the East. Near the center of the island is a large crater which was the result of an explosion. There used to be two lakes. Prism Lake is still full of water, but the large barren lake bed to the Northeast is a dried expanse of nothing. The latter's name was forgotten with time.
