The Serpent Kingdoms are collection of city-states far to the south. Occupying a vast jungle and river delta, the Kingdoms are in a perpetual state of war with each other. Aside from the heat and humidity of the area, the local flora and fauna are inimical to most visitors. Most animals and plants are poisonous, and a large variety of poisons and potions make their way into Volkranian society from here.
Snake-worshippers, the Banelar (as the inhabitants of the Serpent Kingdoms call themselves) are suspicious, cruel and untrusting folk. Few choose to brave the cold of the North and Volkrania.
