The Southern Lands of Merinar


The Elves of Tarren refer to the great southern landmass as Merinar, a name derived from the ancient Elvish word for hardship and misery. The land is aptly named as it is a harsh, mountainous land with few areas of fertile land. Despite these challenges, many great civilizations have carved their homes in the mountainous heights, the tropical jungles or along its coast. It is home to the rising Amazon, Snakemen and Leonine empires as well as hundreds of lesser kingdoms. In recent years, the Elves of Tarren and warriors of the Caliphate have carved their own kingdoms in Merinar with fire and steel. Despite the recent interest, much of the land is unexplored and a mystery to even its native populations.
