The Shattered Lands
This small fragment belongs to house Wexin. The northern section is inhabited, mostly by humans and half-elves. The people of this fragment farm and raise livestock. They sell the excess to house Wexin for other fragments that do not have as much resources, or on the open market.
South of the Gallatin Mountains is the vast Orphiem Desert. In this desert there is a formation of plateaus, can in one of these is the City of the Orpheim. The story goes that after the Shattering the Orphiem were trapped in the desert. They believed that on the far side of the Gallatin mountains was nothing, just the Maelstrom. So, they carved a city for themselves out of the sandstone that makes up the plateau. The city thrived for a time. The Orpheim did eventually discover that there was more to the fragment, and some left. Others stayed. Still, the orpheim simply could not sustain life in the vast desert. Soon the city was abandoned and forgotten.
There is a legend about a mage who came to the Orphiem and taught them potent magic. This legend speaks of a vast library of magic tomes. many adventurers have made their way to the City of the Orphiem only to discover nothing but the ruins of the city.
