The Uncharted Desert is, as the name implies, a desert that is the central fixture of Elone
, the eastern continent of Totania. Much of it has not been mapped out, thusly giving it its name.
The Known Parts
On the outskirts of the Uncharted Desert are some known settlements from the Gnomes, most notably the Gnomish capital Lebalos
, the fake version of the Elven
capital Camor which is called Teilian, and the isolated city of Masgar. There are lesser known Gnomish settlements deep within the desert.
It is also known that the Temple of the Goddes Ioun has two entrances in the Desert, and then sprawls beneath the Desert. If one seeks knowledge or prophecy, they will travel into the Uncharted Desert to seek out Ioun.
The Uncharted Desert is, of course, made mostly of sand. While most, especially those who worship Melora
, Goddess of Nature, say that it was Melora herself who made the desert. However, there are those who believe the sand was, in some part, artificially placed by a Giant with Earth Magic or Nammat the Unseen, a Dragon Lord
who resides in the Uncharted Desert.
Dangers of the Desert
The Uncharted Desert is filled with many dangers, which is part of why it has remained unmapped. There are no maps of any part of the desert aside from the outskirts and the vague location of the Temple of Ioun.
