A new DnD setting I've been working on. Our next campaign will be taking place on that southern continent, beginning in the city of Alabahd. Much of this land is as yet unimagined, but I'll explain a little about each continent.
That southern continent is largely desert, save the strip of jungle in the middle. Below that, a windswept tundra of high plateaus. In the south, the city called the Exilarchy of Cogs (I stole that name, so I may change it soon) is home to a robotic race, and while it soars high into the sky, that is only the tip of the vast city, which extends all the way into the Machine Shell, a lower area of the planet. In the Abbadir Desert, which takes up a large amount of the northern half of the continent, lies the city of Alabahd. Alabahd is a mile-tall, pyramid-shaped city ruled by a lawful dragonborn king and which primarily worships Erathis.
To the west are the Shattered Isles, an archipelago that is sundered by constant warfare between the three city-states that rule chunks of it. It is on the northernmost island that the Monastery of Kord sits upon a tall mountain. This whole area has an oriental flair to it. I may rename one or two of the cities to reflect other parts of Asia. This is one of two places you're likely to find Eladrin.
In the north is a continent divided into two lands by a huge mountain range, which is nearly impassible. In the west, the Ceraman Empire, made up of numerous kingdoms including some elves, eladrin, dwarves, and others. They refer to the mountain range as 'The Bulwark' because on the other side lies Troll's Reach, where there are numerous awful beasties, and even worse: Heathens and savages!
The Isle of Sanguaria is firmly on the Troll's Reach side as, despite the apparent civility and culture of its inhabitants, they have a nasty tendency to drink blood and hang out inside during the day.
The far eastern continent is also divided into two, north and south. North of a mountain range called the Grand Ridge, is the Chimoahee Forest, a vast woodland area home to elves, humans, and some clans of orcs. In the south are vast, fertile plains known as the Great Plain, where small, nomadic tribes hunt roaming herds of beasts. There are a number of Orc clans here as well, and these are almost universally warlike and dangerous. In times of great need, the human tribes convene at the Stone Bastion to either wait out, or fight off, large bands of marauding orcs. Another spot to note in this land is the Hokachee delta, which is a swampy forest at the mouth of the Anuaki river. This place is interesting as it has a colony in it. A Sanguarian colony.
