Se-Netamesphut Geographic Location in Saleh'Alire | World Anvil


Saleh'Alire » Ecology Tolara Talaina'Vao Rasha-Ui / Chisisi Desert

The area known as Se-Netamesphut is a large, crater-like depression located in the western regions of Rasha-Ui, near its border with the Chisisi Desert; Geologists hotly contest whether or not the site is properly a part of Rasha-Ui or the Chisisi Desert due to its close proximity to both. Some have attempted to find a middle ground, however, by classifying the region as a transitional zone between the two.   The lower portions collect water during the rainy season, leading to a small lake with rather sizeable island at its center. Despite the presence of water, however, the crater is devoid of life in its interior- though the exterior around it flourishes like any other Oasis in the region.   Unique sedimentary deposits in the region has created unusual banding along the crater's walls; exposed, swirling bands of red, orange, yellow, green, and blue can be seen along the walls, creating an almost psychedelic appearance to the crater's interior. The only other place in the world this particular banding structure is found, is in the Gahiji Mountains- though here it's far less pronounced.

Author's Notes

▼ Please Read Before You Comment ▼
I absolutely love getting feedback on my setting and its worldbuilding. I love it even more when people poke and prod at it, and ask questions about the things I've built within it. I want both. I actively encourage both. And it makes me incredibly giddy whenever I get either. However, there's a time and a place for critique in particular- mostly when I've actually asked for it (which usually happens in World Anvil's discord server). And when I do ask for critique, there are two major things I politely request that you do not include in your commentary:   ➤ The first is any sort of critique on the way I've chosen to organize or format something; Saleh'Alire is not a narrative world written for reader enjoyment... It's is a living campaign setting for Dungeons and Dragons. To that end, it's written and organized for my players and I, specifically for ease of use during gameplay- and our organization needs are sometimes very different than others'. They are especially diferent, often-times, from how things "should be organized" for reader enjoyment.   ➤ Secondly, is any critique about sentence phrasing and structure, word choice, and so on; unless you've specifically found a typo, or you know for a provable fact I've blatantly misued a word, or something is legitimately unclear explicitly because I've worded it too strangely? Then respectfully: Don't comment on it; as a native English speaker of the SAE dialect, language critique in particular will almost always be unwelcome unless it's absolutely necessary. This is especially true if English is not you first language to begin with. My native dialect is criticized enough as it is for being "wrong", even by fellow native English speakers ... I really don't want to deal with the additional linguistic elitism of "formal english" from Second-Language speakers (no offense intended).   That being said: If you want to ask questions, speculate, or just ramble? Go for it! I love talking about my setting and I'm always happy to answer any questions you have, or entertain any thoughts about it. Praise, of course, is always welcome too (even if it's just a casual "this is great", it still means a lot to authors)- and if you love it, please don't forget to actually show that love by liking it and sharing it around. Because I genuinely do enjoy watching people explore and interact with my setting, and ask questions about it, and I'd definitely love to hear from you... Just be respectful about it, yeah?
