The Great Desert
This large desert is cross-able due to the sporadic oasis which dot the terrain. The routes across it are known by local tribesmen but crossing the desert is not without peril. Apart from the intrinsic difficulties with the harsh landscape there is also the small question of the hobgoblins. These humanoids, numbering in their thousands across the desert, are a constant threat and danger to the tribesmen who live here and the merchants who seek to use this as a quick trade route.
