On the Sunward side, far west of the Brightweld Mountains like the harsh deserts and burning wastlands of Ardi Kokufa. The Dead Lands gradually become more hellish the further sunward people travel – until most living things cannot survive. The sands literally burn and have turned to wide plains of glass. Tribes of devilkin, suntouched and bloodforged from across Shadowfire war with each other across the wastes, while sivilisation clings to the shores of the great Godswollen River that carves through the desert, bringing water, life and and a focus for the tribes struggles. The Lords of Fire control trade across the wastes from behind the walls of the Gleaming City.
