Stretching from the bottom of the Spinesnap Mountains almost down to the southern coast, this desert seperates Port Highland and the City of Guilds from Smoot and Calenfor. It is inhabited a host of undead, giants, and other desert dwelling monsters. Oases are rare, and once entered, it is easy to become lost. Many caravans have become lost and perished within the desert, especially when hit by a sandstorm. The most prominent feature of the desert is the Shimmering City which lies by its eastern edge. Explorers have reported old ruins buried in the sand, uncovered by sandstorms and buried just as quickly, many of which have not been explored due to storms setting in or monsters inhabiting them.
