Waves of ruin, waves of fortune: all have passed over Alanasia. This ancient land to the south-east of Faerun is divided into two distinct regions, north and south, by a great ridge of mountains. The north region, cool and temperate, allows for some farming and many herds. The south region is dry and barren, but is very rich in minerals, some with semi-magical and magical properties. The relative poorness of the soil have created pockets of population that are all dependant on trade in some form or another for survival, and the richness of minerals in both north and south has brought both periods of prosperity and decades of war with it.
