An Adventurer's Tale
The Free Lands
The Free Lands, encompassing almost half the continent, contain unaffiliated small nations of a multitude of races. Gnolls, Giants, Trolls, Orcs and other manner of creatures inhabit this land. Though usually not outwardly hostile towards strangers, most of the different societies that make up these nations do not take kindly to strangers encroaching on their land. Someone traveling through these areas had better have an excellent reason, or lacking one of those, be able to back up their wanderlust with a strong sword arm.
There has been limited trading between Tiamar, Z’mar and the Free Lands Between the trading post at Harnn and the ports of T’Chara and Malchon are where the majority of goods flow between the nations. Though not officially restricted in the cities, most crews of the free lands stay on ship, the exception being made during one of the many festivals of T’Chara, where with carnival in full swing the wild looking crews from the Free Lands fit in better and allow them to take part in the festivities without being shunned, intimidated or attacked.
