The Borderlands is a large geographic region of the West, located between the Saugreth-Muir Mountains and the Amador River.


Its regional borders are: the Saugreth-Muir Mountain range to the east, the Moors to the west, the Pale to the north, and the Heartlands to the south.

Once known as the Ravinian province of "Easthold," the region is now under the general protection of the kingdom of Alveron, which garrisons a dozen keeps throughout the Saugreth-Muir and along the East Road, which runs between the city of Alenthas and the Salkröth. Today, he Borderlands is largely wild and ungoverned, except for a dozen small human settlements.

The peoples of this region are collectively known as "Tweeners." In addition to the Rynnish population, there are a large minority of the Korghani that dwell here, their villages dot the Borderlands, and most Korghani caravans originate from this region.
