Desert

Desert

North: Gobi Desert
Central: Saharan Desert
South: Subtropical Desert (Sonoran & Mojave Deserts)


Stretching as far as the eye can see, this unique desert boasts a diverse landscape: towards the south, cacti stand watch year round over sweeping lands that often see dangerously high temperatures and low precipitation. Moving towards the central section, dirt and clay become reddish sand, constantly shifting thanks to heavy wind. The northern side is a place of extremes, reaching dangerously low temperatures in winter and high in summer. Overall, the Desert provides very little shade, leading most creatures to operate on a nocturnal schedule to avoid the relentless sun.



Altarcama

Probably the coldest sandy desert. The rocks here are made of solid, frozen, peaks of red sand that harbours a dusting of snow here and there. For tender paws, the frozen sand can cut paws and pads, but for those who are native to this region, their hardened paws are unbothered by the cold or sharp edges. Bactrian camels often roam here, knowing all the secrets where food and water can be found in such a desolate looking place.

Ciudad Muerta (discovering)

Sitting at the edge of wastelands lies an abandoned mining town. Whatever was mined in the shafts dug into the sides of the hills isn't known. The town itself is littered with lop-sided wooden buildings, including a two-story saloon with a veranda. An old well marks the beginning of the town, long dried up and notable only for the amount of rust collected on the bucket that hangs above. Beyond the central area are littered country homes with who knows what lying dusted and decrepit within.

Moving Garden

Entering the jungle, there seems to be a wall of warm, tropical weather that engulfs the senses. Regardless of the surrounding area, the garden has only one season. Thousands of species of plant life thrive here, including Kapok trees, Brazil nut trees, and giant palms. There are always fruiting trees in the area. As its namesake suggests, the Moving Garden never stays in one area of the world for long.
Climate: Amazon Rainforest

Sandlark's Labryinth (discovering)

The Labyrinth is an age-old boneyard that seems to appear and disappear, depending on what time you look. There is a native coyote population that primarily hunts small mammals, but may sometimes be found eating reptiles or arachnids. Birds-of-prey can often be found swarming around abandoned carcasses. Precipitation is dangerously low, so sparsely placed cacti are the only flora found here. Watch your step! Visitors should beware of the bones, as they seem to move unexpectedly.

The Badlands

A barren wasteland, filled with nothing but dust and sadness. Few venture through here and those who dare test themselves may sometimes come across the remains of less fortunate travelers.

The Eye of Osiris

Deep within desert dunes, once one has gone far enough to send prayers to the heavens for forgiveness for their folly, rises up the stark relief of what one might call a mountain, steep walls curling to circle around and caress a shadowy land in its sweet embrace. Within that eye of stone is a stone pupil, sheltering the entrance into an age-old underground temple.

The Oasis

A random haven found within the sandy dunes of the desert, a freshwater oasis along with tall coconut trees can be found as a refuge for any thirsty travelers. Shorthaired hares, camels, rats, mice, various birds and some fish makes this a lonely paradise as most who arrive often do not leave out of fear of never finding their way out of the desert.
