Far to the north, this territory is home to vicious tribes of gnolls and goblinoids who long ago made deals with demons. Almost yearly it seems a demon rises in the Devastated Wastes and bands together these tribes leading them on the March of Blood south. The city of Synp was founded after the first of these incursions for the sole purpose of defending the world against these armies. Rare and precious metals can be found in the mountains but are rarely sought because of the danger the tribes of the region pose. When not on the March of Blood the tribes fight amongst each other for dominance of the region and control of the few mines that have lasted through the constant battles. Ruins of old temples dedicated to evil gods dot the landscape, a few still in use, Gruumsh in particular has a strong following in the Devastated Wastes. From the dealings forces of the Elemental Chaos, demons and archons are not an uncommon sight.
