The Borderlands

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, Alveron to the west, the Pale to the north, and Gwynne 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.

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.

All peoples living in this region are collectively known as "Tweeners."


Because of its large size, there are several large geographic sub-regions of the Borderlands, these are:
