Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #239

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #239 

August 28th, 2023 

  • Number: 239 

  • Name:  Deep Dive on a Site of Interest: The Borderlands – Part 1 

  • Location: The southern Wastelands before things get very strange. 

  • Population (approx.): Varies 

  • Brief: As the Ta’arna Empire collapsed in upon itself, its death throes rippled across the land, changing the very nature of Aenwyld to varying degrees. Closer to the old center of the Empire, the more radical changes occurred as Corrupted factions battled each other to a nation ending mutual annihilation. The four City-States to the north (Carasta, Noldrune, Ceannar and Taodeas) are quite habitable, nearly normal. The Wastelands south of Taodeas are mostly habitable, especially if one avoids certain areas and ruins. But further south, beyond a line marked by a half dozen unusual locations, the remains of the Empire are barely habitable. Tales tell that the sailors of Stormwatch (#65) and Pike’s Point (#139) have sailed a wide berth about the blight and report that eventually land returns to normal as the world grows colder. 

  • Geography: The Borderlands is a narrow ribbon of land stretching from the Arvach Ocean to the Sea of Hethichol. It runs south of The Hedron Assembly (#104), Ulono Atu – City of Six Curses (#204), Heliostat Citadel (#69) and the headwaters of the Saut River (#31). The locations of the Borderlands reveal where the normal and altered meet and interact. 

  • Next Article: Over the course of this week, we’ll present some of the notable peoples, happenings and plot threads of the six notable sites of the Borderlands.
