Sea of Sand (the Myr Gelyn)

The Sea of Sand is an enormous desert in far southern Corwyn that serves as the boundary between that continent and Azoria.

The Sea of Sand, which stretches for thousands of miles across southern Corwyn, is one of the most inhospitable and dangerous regions of the Continent. The desert is inhabited by fierce Vilzari nomads, dangerous beasts, and terrifying magical creatures.

The desert is also home to the "Desert-Elves" of Corwyn, who call it the "Myr Gelyn."

The desert's northern borders are the Redpeaks and the Kerak, its southern borders are the An-Arak Grasslands.

The eastern borders of the desert are the Agatite Mountains, and its western border is the Vilzari Coast of the Sea of Ralas.

This enormous desert wasteland is very sparsely populated. Except for a few scattered oases, one can travel for weeks without seeing another living soul.

In many regions of the desert, the only landmarks are huge sandstone outcroppings called "En'Edi"

One of the most desolate regions of the desert is called the "Parched Dunes."
