The Ashen Wastes

The Ashen Wastes is a volcanic archipelago that was, until recently, known to be completely uninhabited. Its hot climate, penchant for volcanic eruptions, and lack of proximity to other countries for supplies made it a place that none wanted to colonize. It has (presumably) recently become the base of operations for the terrorist group the Oathbreakers. These Revenants saw the lack of people as perfect for their deep desire to hide, and the fact that they and their husks don't need to consume anything but Essentia... It's absolutely perfect.


The Ashen Wastes are just that. It is an archipelago made up entirely of volcanic islands and dry, brittle scrublands. Though the volcanic soil is extremely fertile, the lack of indigenous esseni and subsequent lack of agriculture has allowed the landscape to remain scrubby. Eruptions are common, and the area is usually extremely hot.
