The Great Desert
Little can be said about the Great Desert that hasn’t been already. It is a nearly uninhabitable wasteland of shifting sands and baking heat. Other than the occassional merchant train or band of Shien wandering the main body of the desert, one can travel for weeks through it without encountering another living creature. That said, tales of strange beings and exotic, lost ruins encountered far within the boundaries of the Great Desert are frequent and often capture the interest of groups of adventurers.
