Traveling from the northern extremities of the Sonsuz desert, entering the Deytet Savannah can feel like entering a different world. Where once had been nothing but sand is instead a sprawling landscape of trees and grasses, home to a multitude of animals and the Tribal peoples referred to as the ‘Free States’ by the ret of Turoza. Despite its much more abundant outward appearance compared to the Desert to the south, the Deytet Savannah is still an incredibly difficult place to eke out a living, and the people who live here need to be incredibly tough, hardy and cunning to survive.
Fauna & Flora
In terms of its flora, the Deytet is a mixed woodland-grassland area, where a variety of large trees and shrubs coexist and create a single coverage of flora with species of long grasses. The trees of the Deytet are normally quite widely dispersed, with large canopies, though the tree density of the area is actually surprisingly high. The distance between the trees, however, is what has allowed the many types of grass to form lush meadows all across the landscape. All of the Savannah’s plants are well adapted to living for long periods of time without water, and when viewed from above, the whole region will fluctuate from being a golden brown colour during the dry season, to a vibrant, lush green during and after the rainy season. Aside from the tribal peoples that live and move across the area of the Deytet, Savannah, the area is awash with life. The region is home to large herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo as well as populations of different gazelles, warthogs, giraffes, various types of monkeys and is also home to a strong populations of elephants. Of course, this concentration of prey animals also means that there are numerous predators that live in the region, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, wild dogs, and other more monstrous creatures. All in all, the immense biodiversity of the region means that the Deytet is one of the prime areas for people to look to trap animals, which are then sold far and wide as exotic pets and curiosities.
