Scales of War
South of the Wyrmsmoke Mountains lies a vast barren land known as the Thornwaste. A maze of broken hills, briar-choked ravines, and dry, dusty scrubland, these badlands give way to larger and larger stretches of true desert as one goes farther south and west. The Thornwaste has long been the haunt of all manner of strange and terrifying monsters. The ruins of a lost serpent-empire thousands of years old still lie hidden in this wasteland.
