The Great Shear divides the continent in two. It is as if some great being, long ago, indelicately sliced the land. The shear varies in width and can be five miles of more across in places and is more than a mile in depth. At the bottom runs the Forgotten River. The only known way across the shear is through Westtown, a city on built on the shear itself and connected to Easttown on the other side of the shear.
On the west side of the shear lies the human Kingdom of Koldarin; the snow capped peaks of the Dundaar mountain range, home of the dwarf kingdom; and the glimmering wood, with Glammeron an expansive elvish kingdom. South of the Koldarin Kingdom are The Contested Lands, a region of few resources in constant turmoil regarding ownership of them.
East of the great shear lie … that will be revealed in time.
