The Doomsday Clock
The Northern Lands
The northern lands are a largely desolate area of the world. The area is home to harsh colds that most people do not wish to endure save a few of the most dedicated nomadic tribes and several trade cities to the northwest.
The Gulf Cities
The vast majority of the northern lands are inhospitable lands with little reason to travel to but the mountains surrounding the Gulf of Tears are rich in Mithral so many mining cities have been setup there in the last 1000 years.
