  • Wasteland, home to the servants of the Dark Gods

    From A New Atlas for the Ninth Age - by Johannes Strabo wrote:

    [..] the powerful nation of Sonnstahl guards all mankind against the dangers of the Wasteland, [..] Augea, the immense sister of Vetia, separated from one another by the great Wasteland, home to the servants of the Dark Gods.

    Many people assume the Wasteland begins as soon as one passes the Border Beacons. Few have anything but a cursory understanding of the vast swathes that lie between: the great Makhar Steppe. This huge, rolling grassland is home to a multitude of uncouth peoples; somewhat scattered and mostly nomadic, it is true, but nevertheless numerous and fearsome in battle. Sadly the neglect of these lands by the so-called Empire of Humanity has resulted in many tribes turning to the Dark Gods. I feel certain that the current policy of leaving them to their own devices can only result in catastrophe in the long term. — Destrian explorer and anthropologist Tabor Delphino, at a keynote lecture in Narrenwald
