-The world is currently under construction.+=== Northwest desert ===
  
-=== Northeast ​desert ​===+The northwest quadrant of the island is a harsh desert, nearly incapable of supporting surface life. As such, most others don't care enough to bother the region, content to let the dwarves be.
  
-[[Hammerhome]]+The dwarves long ago discovered that under this blazing hellscape precious shinys grew in heavy abundance, and so developed their mines leading in and down. The underground has expanded outward, but is apparently one massive cave system, such as to avoid needing to ascend to the surface. There are a number of exits, most of which lead to the small oasis pockets found in the desert.  
 + 
 +The main surface "​city", ​[[Hammerhome]], is near the coast, allowing ships to come and do trade.
  
 === Southwest coast === === Southwest coast ===
  
-[[Charity]]+The southwest coast is particularly known for its beautiful beaches on the southern peninsula, and indeed that is where most of its economy lies. The only major city is [[Charity]], though a variety of smaller villages and towns litter the coast. 
 + 
 +About half a day's ride is the Central Forest, which, in addition to the fine resorts, makes the area a popular destination for all manner of visitors. 
 + 
 +The west coast is more of a swampy region, although it is slowly being developed into workable farmland, which provides the beach hotels with much of their food.
  
 === Central forest ===  === Central forest === 
 +
 +The central forest is exactly what it sounds like.
 +The Blackwood family used to control the lumber monopoly, but after the end of the line with Marcus Blackwood'​s untimely demise, the area has reverted to the crown. With the loss of a guardian and the rise of raiders and brigands in the months following the succession, civilians have also moved away from the main city, though some hermits and hamlets still remain. The family estate, being in the middle of the forest, has slowly crumbled over the years as nature moved back in. The ruins are rumored to be the home of the central black market, though authorities have yet to find solid evidence.
  
 === Southeast mountains === === Southeast mountains ===
  
-[[Guile]]+Lord Andross used to rule this region, but has since been arrested for high treason. Without an acknowledged heir of his own, the crown sent an advisor to hold the area until his sons worked out their succession problems.  
 + 
 +The mountain ranges keep the majority of the southwest isolated from the rest of the island, as well as being elevated enough to deter easy oceanic access. The internal region is amazingly diverse, containing all manner of ecological abundance, providing for the needs of the people of the region. 
 + 
 +The main commercial output are materials from the mountain, as a wealth of metal ores are found in the region. The capital city of [[Guile]] ​sits close to the only port and mine exit to the central island, as well as being easily land accessible by the inner regions.
  
 === Midland farms === === Midland farms ===
 +
 +Stuff. Nothing important.
  
 === Northeast swamp === === Northeast swamp ===
 +
 +Beware of ogres.
 +One of them stole my exploration notes, and I require assistance recovering them. Until such time, I dare not commit anything here, lest I confuse it with some other swamp and cause some poor traveler to blissfully walk to his doom.
