The Northlands are a large geographic region of the West, encompassed by the Kingdom of Ammarind.

The Northlands are harsh and cold, made up largely of vast windswept plains, sharp rocky outcroppings, tree covered hills, and tall mountains. The race of humans called the Amari, originated here; today, they are the most common ethnic group found here.

This region is cold and harsh most of the year, and the folk who dwell here are grim and hardy.

Since the Northlands region is encompassed by the kingdom of Ammarind, the two terms are commonly used interchangeably to describe the area. People from this region are usually called either "Northlanders," or "Ammarindi."
