Exploring Úr’Dan: Naebvael

Many of the smaller regions or groups in Úr’Dan wield inordinate power over the subcontinent. We’ve already seen this with Driftport, the city out of which all Úr’Daní trade flows, and the Arrowhead, which serves as a necessary stopping point for trade flowing up and down Everwash.

Well, as promised, we’re going to look at yet another region that, while geographically and demographically small, holds enormous sway in Úr’Dan. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: Naebvael

Exploring Úr’Dan: The Southern Half

In my first three posts in this series, I discussed the general aspects of my world-building, such as the language and the mythology.

I’ve been watching Planet Eath II on BBC America with Present Wife recently, so I’m inspired to delve into my alternate universe a bit more.

On tonight’s episode… Mountains! What life could survive in some of the most rugged and extreme conditions of Úr’Dan?

Okay, I’ll drop the David Attenborough act, tempting though it is. Continue reading Exploring Úr’Dan: The Hundred Teeth
