-The continent is roughly 6600 mets from South to North and 5280 mets West to East. It lies across the equator with about 80% to the North. On the Eastern edge is a large chasm, across from which, is another landmass with low plains and hills, the Dwarves lay no claim to that land. The chasm is highest in the North where it is over 5 mets. The other land mass does not rise to half that height. The southern end of the continent has a splendid shoreline of beaches. The western edge has a mostly forested shore and eventually reaches the mountain range going to the Northeast that holds the capital. On the northern side of the mountain range the land rises as it heads east.+To the southwest and across the ocean is Geleia. Lojem lies on the opposite side of the Northern Hemisphere. The continent is roughly 6600 mets from South to North and 5280 mets West to East. It lies across the equator with about 80% to the North.

 The northern mountain range contains numerous mine shaft and rail lines. A cart on the rails can reach speeds up to 132 mets per hour. The trip back though is not as quick. There have been some experimental methods tested that have had less than favorable results to speed up the uphill trip. The northern mountain range contains numerous mine shaft and rail lines.

-After the Day of Shaking in the year 10061, the surface of Jaern was changed. Sea levels dropped worldwide to stabilize 15 feet lower. Not only was new land exposed from beneath the shallow seas, but in some areas of the planet, massive upheavals of land also occurred. A new continent arose and then broke in two. On the western edge of one was a Dwarven City that used to be at the center of the chain of islands they had been mining. The King of Dwarves, Driedach Stohnk’lar, sent word out that the Dwarven Kingdom, as prophesied, has arisen and laid claim to the western landmass. To the southwest and across the ocean is Galeia. Lojem lies on the opposite side of the Northern Hemisphere.+After the Day of Shaking in the year 10061, the surface of Jaern was changed. Sea levels dropped worldwide to stabilize 15 feet lower.

 Dwarves from all over the world have uprooted from their homes to be part of a new Dwarven Kingdom. The original farmland was drastically increased to help provide for the new arrivals. For an unknown reason, Otherworld and some similar magics do not work across most of the land. There is one known portal that has stayed open to the Alpha Site: Portal XCII. This one portal has been used as a source of supplemental materials and an entrance port to the migration of Dwarves who choose not to come by sea. Dwarves from all over the world have uprooted from their homes to be part of a new Dwarven Kingdom.
