The rough map has been divided up in to Campaign areas. These were geographic locations that a DM is responsible for.
This was deliberately left open - there are no rivers or inland bodies of water, etc shown on the map. DMs could add them where they wanted. However, as a number of plot events occurred in specific locations: DMs would need to work together and share ideas.
Ancient city, Khassh'vorr
Built on a fertile river delta. A large underground complex exists, but very little known about it except by the Yuan-ti. The city itself is mainly flooded; with about a foot of standing water everywhere - no problem to the semi-aquatic LizardFolk.
Human colony, Port Calachetta
A short distance from the city on dry land. A town about 100 years old with a small jetty to allow ships to load. Includes a graveyard, temple merchant company offices, equipment stores, taverns, etc.
City of the Dead, Mhishlaan
Free-willed DARKLIGHT UNDEAD, guarding the tomb complex of the sleeping Merrshaulk. Ruled by a council of Liches (Undead OVERKINGs). A blighted area surrounds the city. "Mountain’s blood" river, vast like the Amazon. Runs past the CITY OF THE DEAD, out to the sea.
Celestial city, Tlapallan
Outpost of Celestials/Angels, Couatl.
Dwarven Mines & NW Mountains
Opencast mining of obsidian, by LizardFolk and Dwarves. Hazardous terrain. Metal mines, gem mines, prospectors etc. Also site of destroyed Darklight beacon.
Safety valve of negative energy. Maintained by golems, in a large city complex. Golems are hostile to PCs.
Large arid expanse, sulphurous in the volcanic zone. Strange lines (like Nazca plain) across the desert. Tar-pits, quicksand.
Shunned by the cold-blooded LizardFolk. Frozen marshes and tundra in closer areas.
Jungle, North Eastern
Thick jungle, strange noises, brightly coloured wildlife, high humidity. Large number or rivers and bodies of water.
Jungle, North Western
Thick jungle, strange noises, brightly coloured wildlife, high humidity. Illuminated LizardFolk. Signs of Civilisation. Large number or rivers and bodies of water. Dinosaurs common.
Jungle, South Eastern
Hostile LizardFolk. Also summoned Tanar’ri, LizardFolk Half Fiends. Temples to Merrshaulk (but no Yaun-ti)?
Jungle, South Western
Hostile LizardFolk. Possible survivors. Tribal rivalries.
Mountains, North Eastern
Impassable. Unpredictable weather.
Mountains, South Eastern
Impassable. Unpredictable weather.
Open area - PCs travelling this area are open to attack by Sahuagin and shark hunting parties.
Similar to the Spanish Main/Caribbean, pirates and the like. A few weeks travel by ship from the New World.
Plains & Scrubland (South)
Dinosaurs common. Similar to Serengeti.
Underwater realm of the Sahuagin
Former ANCIENT city. Used to have DARKLIGHT tower, but destroyed in volcanic eruption. Now it is home to the aquatic and xenophobic Sahuagin.
