The Amacata Desert was a vast equatorial desert that stretched from the west of Amicalis to the north of Polvora. It was a harsh, unforgiving environment. A boneyard circled around the very center of the the desert, formed from generations of creatures and travelers having failed to cross the equator.

Boegaden was a marsh region where the Haazrade made their home. It was located north of Amicalis, in the northeastern corner of the continent.

Mountain ranges

Picos Mountains

The Picos Mountains were located along the northern reaches of the Gibral Peninsula. These mountains were a natural protective barrier for the Polvora Empire because they were extremely difficult to transit on foot. Thus, they served to keep out northern invaders.

Eastern Range

The Eastern Range was a mountain chain along the east coast responsible for creating a rain shadow across the continent. Thus, these mountains were responsible for the formation of the Amacata Desert.

Khios Mountains

The Khios Mountains covered much of Obreidhion's northern coast, and according to legend were formed from the spine of the skeleton of an ancient, colossal beast made of stone. These peaks went far beyond the clouds and were covered in snow year round. Almost all of the Allied Khionic Monasteries were located here.

Bodies of water

Gulf of Segara
