Sea of Sand (the Myr Gelyn)
DESERT%20RUINS-1.jpg

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


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 Dunlands region and the Kerak, its southern borders are the grasslands of Vilzar.

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

This enormous desert wastelabd is very sparsely populated. Except for a few scattered oases, one can travel for weeks without seeing another living soul. One of the most desolate regions of the desert is called the "Parched Dunes."

RUINS OF THE DESERT


Over the Ages, the Sea of Sand has been home to several civilizations. The grandest of these was the ancient Empire of Shorafa. The Shorafi people built five magnificent cities scattered across the region, all of which were later consumed by the desert sands.

  • Djedu; the "City of Jewels"
  • Ostrum; the "City of Spices"
  • Sekh; the "City of Wisdom"
  • Tanif; the "City of Splendors"
