The Myrnmaros Rift
The continent is split by the mountain range, Moradin’s Cleave . The eastern half was first settled by an tribal offshoot of the great Elven race. The western half is the land of Men and Dwarves.
The seas to the north and south are treacherous, and not easily crossed. To the north, polar ice caps in the Frozen Sea render ship travel extremely dangerous, and places to gather supplies near nonexistent. The additional hazard posed by indigenous megafauna make it unusual for any race to travel them. To the south, the Black Fang Sea is dotted with obsidian rock, and acid-spewing vents that can tear ships to bits. Few but the most brave cross it.
