Midlands
Histerec Woods
Histerec Woods are ancient and ominous. There is a darkness that weaves through the massive primordial trees. The woods are larger than one might imagine when one first encounters them. How large can a forest on an island be after all? Ravens fly through the ancient trees and cry a foreboding song for any who dares to enter the depths of the forest. These birds flock in abundance at the deepest parts of Histerec Woods. In some places, it is impossible to tell the swarm of Ravens apart from the ominous blackness that seeps through the pores of the thick rows of trees. There are even fewer signs of life in Histerec Woods the deeper you go. It is like a silent sanctuary that is carefully guarding secrets.

The greatest mystery is how the woodlands can consume so much territory. It is as though these ancient woods have a voracious appetite. Throughout this domain, moss creeps into every nook and cranny it can. It spans the entirety of the great tree limbs, and dangles precariously like a great living curtain. The deeper in the forest you go, the moss darkens the light.The Ravens have made their homes in the curtains of moss overhead. The heart of Histerec Woods is claustrophobic. There are not many who return from the very heart of this vibrant woodland realm.

Notmer Basin
Notmer Basin is a thriving marshland harbor at the Midlands' heart. It is not enough that turbulent seas surround the Midlands, but their very center is also a wetland. The docks here are as mysterious as the men who run them. The ships they command do not float upon the water and navigate the narrow channels between the grassy islands. Their ships disappear into the murky marshland waters and only surface again once they reach their destinations.

There is much to be said for all the Midlands, but mainly that they are ancient and mysterious. Many a local recall a visit from mysterious creatures they would not have met without being in proximity to the Basin. Some call the visitors the Pyscli. Others know them as the Waste Fiends. These individuals seem to arrive only at the most strange times and can do things that seem to defy the laws of nature beyond even the rules of magic. Encounters with the Psycli are generally either unpleasant.

Somewhere within the confines of the basin, and past the great, hairy pines, lies something unusual. The keepers of ancient knowledge covet this mysterious object. Many have heard stories of a legendary object that is responsible for the abilities of the Psycli. The object is fiercely guarded and those who attempt to find this object often turn up missing.

Nifithid
Nifithid is a region that encompasses the coastline of all of the Midlands. It is difficult to know where to begin describing the beautiful region. Large slate-green stones form the land that would usually be made of white sand. There are rocky drystone walls as far as the eye can see. The peaks are covered with thick dry grass and sea-worn stones. The region of Nifithid closest to the sea is shaped into relatively flat bands that consist of slate.

Most of the stone is relatively coarse or even rocky. As one progresses inland, the stone becomes rougher, finer, and, more colourful. Nifithid begins as a sweeping gray mass of stone and what appears to be volcanic rock clambering its way from the sea floor, and transitions into a range of colors. There are mountains near Nifithid that are fed by two large lakes, Bracondeshile and Tresponds. These lakes receive their water from brackish springs and a lake of saltwater. Nestled across the region are smatterings of outcroppings made up of many crystals that create a kaleidoscope effect when the sun hits the crystalline structures just right.

These structures are labyrinthian in nature and offer an array of dazzling sights. They open their maws and swallow adventurers whole. Winding tunnels creep beneath the shores of Nfithid. Some collide with one another, and some tunnels are flimsier than others. Locals describe these ancient structures as being full of wonder and riches.
