The Puppet's Strings
The Athar Wastes cover most of the southwestern corner of the continent, stretching from the Western Sea to the western edge of the Rigsholm Mountains, and as far north as the Great Glacial Plain. The entire region is a vast wasteland of sand, stone, and blasted ruins of the Athar’s past. This huge Desert Terrain was once a massive city-state belonging to the Athar, but once Tiamat dealt out her wrath it became a barren land unsuitable to any not adapted to the hot, dry climate. Most animals, and creatures, that make their homes in Desert Terrain climates may be found here. Along the far western edge of the Wastes lie a small mountain range called the Thunderteeth Hills. These mountains are home to the Great Blue Wyrm, Galvanak, and his tribes of Lamia who serve as his slaves and guardians.
