The Jungle Realm
The Kingdom of Neldir is the most significant aspect to the Jungle Realm,
other than it being covered in dense rain forest, of course. The Attawail
runs from the fortress of Source until it decends into the Underworld near
Yilsevik. Many Aasimar, Elves, Goliaths, Giants, Dragons, Centaurs, and
Lizardfolk call this region home.
Roads of the Jungle Realm: Jungle Pass Road goes through the heart
of the jungle, providing and important travel and trade route to the South.
Westreach Road does the same for the Naphic coast, and also heads up to
important trade city of Dragonbreach. Sunbeam Highway is a well protected
road between the center of the kingdom of Neldir and Smitestone Castle.
North of Smitestone, however, the road becomes Raider's Road, named because
of the continual problems with thieves there.
Rivers of the Jungle Realm: At the far North is the Sandwall River,
providing a border to the Northern Desert, but the main river of the region
is the Attawail River. This river runs from the hot springs near Source
through the jungle until it decends into the Underworld near Yilsevik.
Terrain of the Jungle Realm: In the North, the Stonefist Hills
are riddled with giants that are often engaging in skirmishes with the
dwarves of Lagurno. To the East is Hoofwyld Forest, an ancient wood where
even the Centaur inhabitants tend to avoid its heart. In the South likes
a large depression created when a meteor struck the ground, creating
The Bowl. Fire giants rule over this area, hording over its unusual and
rich mineral deposits.
Civilizations of the Jungle Realm: The Jandaath are a tribe of
goliaths that have lived in the hills for centuries. Fanta's Meadow is a
halfling village and wagon train, situated on a forty-acre piece of
meadowland adjoining several farms in a rural area populated by other
races. Lagurno is a very closed dwarven community made up almost entirely
of the Stonefist clan. Long ago, Smitestone Castle was run by an aasimar
royal blood line, but has since become the home of a cult of dragonborn,
with peasants flocking to them for protection. The town of Westwall
is a fishing town that maintains an important trade route. The village of
Lilton is covered in large jungle lilies much of the year. The fishing
village of Gextra acts as a way point for travelers. The major city of
Attawail is the heart of this region and as the capital city is also home
to the King of Neldir. The elven village of Astra keeps to itself, but has
always had problems with green dragons. The village of New Eldattan is
mostly a clan of widdershin that named their new home after the far away
one they came frome. The village of Fenclaw is home to catfolk that seem
to be of a black panther variety. An aasimar baron calls the village of
Colteer home. The peacful town of Stump is a mining town that works under
the Fireforge giants.
Points of Interst of the Jungle Realm: Crimson Rock is an
ancient sacrificial site used for appeasing the green dragons of the
forest. Deephollows is a subterranean complex controlled by kobolds. Years
ago the small village of Balcress was haunted by a merciless killer, who
has continued to haunt the village well after death. Dartakoth lairs in
the swamps to the South, and is a black dragon of epic power. Wastri's
temple is an ancient ruin to a long forgotten god, presumably Wastri. At
the Rainbow Spire, a well hidden ziggurat, it is said the ancient couatl
reside. Vyerbirsh is an ancient red dragon that claims the tallest peak in
the region as his own. The ruins of Baderdon was a flourishing town before
it was destroyed during the Dragon War, blasted so badly that there is
still an inherent electrical charge in the ground. Daggerspite Castle is
another set of ruins, destroyed druing a territorial war ages ago, and
with giants in the area, there hasn't been any concerted effort to
rebuild it. The ruins of Shelter were destroyed hundreds of years ago, but
was an elven town for early settlers of the area. The town of Yilsevik is
home to criminals and lizardfolk, but they keep close eye on the pathway
to the underworld nearby. The castle of Coldbreeze is populated by strange
and powerful creatures of the elements, and they like their privacy.
Source is a keep by the hit springs that feed the Attawail River, which
although long ago was held by soldiers of Neldir, it is now home to the
yuan-ti. Fireforge Castle is home to the Fireforge family of fire giants
that claim domain over The Bowl.
