I. Geographical Information

A. Geography and Terrain

Aujir Hoardland
Azure Sands

The Azure Sands stretch endlessly, a vast expanse of desert where the horizon meets an endless sea of shimmering blue grains. This surreal landscape is unlike any other, captivating travelers with its beauty and mystery.

The sand in this desert is uniquely blue from the kyanite crystals prevalent in the southwest of the continent. As the kyanite crystals weather and erode over time, they break down into fine grains of sand that retain their striking blue color. The blue hue of the sand is further enhanced by the way light interacts with the crystals, giving the Azure Sands their mesmerizing appearance.

Despite its beauty, the Azure Sands are a harsh and unforgiving environment, where temperatures soar during the day and plummet at night. Only the hardiest of plants and animals have adapted to survive in this harsh landscape, adding to the sense of otherworldly beauty and isolation that defines the Azure Sands.

Occupying the central third of Aunea, the country of Ornea ranges from the Chillspine Mountains in the west to the Grelamin and Tyrheumme Rivers to the east.  This large and diversely populated land is loosely governed by a conclave of Elder Dragons known as the Orneaic Heptarch. 
This group meets annually on the shores of Lake Orn, and every three years conducts a tour of each of the more populous settlements of Ornea.
Lake Orn

At the head of the Jhin River is Lake Orn, best known as the location of the Conclave of the Orneaic Heptarch, its frigid snowmelt-fed water, gigantic and delicious salmon, and the Czamthovaloryc (ZAM-tho-va-lori-ic) family. The Czamthovaloryc quintuplets were an extremely rare multiple-birth of White Dragons, made rarer by their unusual level of familial devotion to one another. These siblings call the mountains surrounding Lake Orn their home, and they play a central role in preparing and hosting the annual Summit.

In Lake Orn, the island of Gurthos is largely cold and inhospitable, but the town of Folle is an exception. The villagers (largely Suli) make a tidy profit from their harvest of Luminescent Choroan Mussels – a rare and delicious delicacy. These mussels are found only in the icy waters of Lake Orn. Those who harvest them are known as Ice-veined, from their seeming immunity to the cold.


The Brightwood is a large grove of massive deciduous trees near the center of Aunea. It borders the larger forests that cover much of the country, but differs significantly in that at night the leaves give back a gentle golden glow that keeps the woods illuminated almost all the time. The only time the leaves do not give their comforting light is during the new moon. These nights are referred to by the residents of the woods as Darknights.

The Brightwood is unofficially governed by the Daughter of the Brightwood, a dryad druid that has a reputation for being able to cure even the most severe of illnesses.

Nestled against the northwest corner of the Brightwood is Grimglow Mountain. The light from the Brightwood illuminates the eastern slope of the mountain from below, creating an eerie, supernatural feel. This, coupled with the rumors of actual haunting, gives the mountain its name.
