The Southlands exist because no one else wanted them...the people that is, the folks who don't have a thing worth fighting over, or defending from others. Too far from everywhere else, the villages and towns that make up what we know today as The Southlands decided to rally together...help each other, trade with and defend each other...
For Seven Hundred years the peoples of The Southlands have stood together in the face of everything out in the wild, and the machinations of neighboring territories who now see The Southlands as something worth fighting over...
Drawn by a chance at freedom, or just a chance at all...wanderers, vagrants, merchants and criminals...not to mention the odd, honest person...all show up in The Southlands, are brought close and made family by it's people...and they in turn grow the community they now call home. From ancient China to Members of Elronds House...all are welcome in The Southlands.
A few of the sites worth seeing while visiting The Southlands are...
The Southlands Forge of the Guild Alchemica...one of the first, outside powers to set up shop and join with the people of The Southlands...now one of it's staunchest and most determined supporters, the Guild is a powerful force, both for war and for industry
Khoonbish and his Mauraders, warriors for hire and loyal Rangers of our Borders...the yeti-kin and his band are brutal, swift and fearless...and sons and daughters of The Southlands ALL!
The Dojo of Sasori, where the Scorpion will teach you how to Strike!
and many more...!
