North Territories

Shyia


Shyia is located in the northwestern portion of the continent. It is the coldest territory in Anikira, but the trees still provide shelter to a multitude of species. Winter-coated wolves are well adapted to this territory. However, it is also a wonderful place for arctic foxes and snowshoe hares.

Testing
A tunnel worms its way under the mountains, carved out by years of erosion and shifting earth. The deeper it delves, the louder the trickles of water can be heard. The passageway explodes into a cavernous aquifer, buried below the surface for thousands of years. The fresh water is cool and never threatens to run low.

Caurus


Caurus is the northernmost piece of Anikira. The territory includes both the continental mass as well as Ina'mos Island off the coast. It is ruled by a mild climate, but the winters can be rather chilly. Caurus is one of the few territories loners can roam without any claims being placed on it.

East Territories

The Oriens

The Oriens is nestled on the eastern coast of Anikira. It is completely surrounded by the Kinath except for a small portion of the beach and where the mountains meet the cliffs. The temperature is generally mild in the forest, but the mountains are chilly year-round with snow-coated peaks.

The Kinath


The mountains of The Kinath tower above the rest of Southern Anikira. Dangerous, slick paths lead up to the snow-capped peaks. The range divides the plains from the greenery of the Oriens. Snow remains on the tips around the caves year round. Evergreens are the only trees on the mountains, but large boulders prevent excess erosion.

It is nestled in the side of the cliff formed by the shift of plates that brought the atoll closer to the top of the water.

Ahyrd's Atoll

This unique coral ring rests just below the surface of the water to the west of the island. Beneath the surface rests a dormant volcano, and the coral is accessible by a short swim. It is home to a multitude of large food fish and aquatic creatures. The coral is so close to the surface that it can be walked upon.

Dyndre's Swamp

The damp soils of the southern half of Ina'mos are home to a variety of large creatures, such as crocodiles, and a plethora of colorful birds. The land is difficult to navigate safely due to the dangerous animals that inhabit it, but it makes for great hunting grounds for the brave soul.

Cavern of Govyn

The Cavern of Govyn was originally part of the aquifer formed during the hardening of the lava that originally built Ina'mos. With the plate shifts, the entrance to the cavern was dislodged to allow entrance. The trickling sounds of water echo all throughout the cavern and, if one is brave enough to venture deep into its winding tunnels, the aquifer can be accessed.

Igneir


The product of a violent volcanic eruption, Igneir represents the fusion of two worlds. While the molten ground is virtually untouchable and will exude heat for many months, the lava field permanently fuses Tas'alea to mainland Anikira while also eating away at some surrounding territories.

South Territories

Xisyn

Xisyn is located on the southern tip of the continent. This valley, created from a sinkhole in the south portion of the Sands of Rodorr, is now teeming with life. Loose rocks are everywhere. A small creek runs through the lower portion of the valley, and desert caverns are scattered through the walls.

Alpha(s): None

Belashi Butte

Belashi Butte is one of the most beautiful landforms in the southern territories. The red rock rises mysteriously from the depths of the canyon. It, amazingly, stayed in tact with the collapse of the sinkhole. The top of the butte is littered with large, circular rock formations, seemingly floating with little support. It is a difficult but rewarding climb to the top.

Boulders of Tohyz

With the collapse of the sinkhole came many loose rocks. Most of the larger stones fell in a central area, now referred to as the Boulders of Tohyz. These large boulders are lodged tightly together, preventing them from shifting further. The area they cover is mostly barren because the soil is sandy and covered from sunlight. Many small critters hide in the stones.

Turxos Creek

Although it is buried in a desert sinkhole, Turxos Creek provides most of the water that sustains life in Xisyn. The water trickles out from the sandstone from an aquifer in the northern territories, feeding the tuffs of plantlife and wildlife alike. Its flow is small, but it is consistent throughout all the seasons. The water is never frozen or muddy.

Virak Caverns

Virak Caverns is the largest discovered network of caves in all of Anikira. The caves stretch far under the Sands of Rodorr, and it is rumored that there are even hidden exits to both the Occasus and Acerbus somewhere buried deep in the tunnels. Some tunnels cannot be navigated due to large stelagmites and stelactites. The sandstone is brittle in many areas.

Aveline

Aveline expands on the southeastern coast of Anikira. While it is mostly grasslands, the easternmost region is marshy and humid. The most notable feature is an old sinkhole that has the clearest water in Anikira streaming through it as well as an ancient crater that is nestled among the grasslands.

Tor's Marsh


Named for the wolven god Tor, the marshlands of Aveline are dangerous and not navigable during high tide. The land is home to some of the most dangerous animals in Anikira, such as the crocodile and water moccasin, that threaten a swift death to those who do not treat them with respect. However, the marsh also attracts a variety of ducks and small birds.

Desakin Crater


Evidence of a thousand-year-old meteor strike, Desakin Crater rests in the far south of Aveline. The indention in the earth's crust is more than fifteen feet down and forty yards across, signifying a rather large strike. The center of the crater often fills with rain waters, but during the drought seasons, it becomes a graveyard to many water-deprived animals.

Chamoru Plains


The eastern portion of Chamoru Plains rests within the borders of Aveline. The grasslands are the prime hunting location for members of the resident pack. Most of the large prey of Anikira reside in the plains, as it is the most temperate and versatile location on the continent. Trees are scarce across the plains, but the occasional tree provides much-needed shade.

The Eye of Fenris


Long ago, the earth below a portion of Chamoru Plains gave way from the hundreds of years of erosion caused by underground water flow. The Eye of Fenris, a sinkhole that has existed for more than a hundred years, still bears the saltwater river that carved it out all those years ago. Some of the tunnels that water previously flowed are no longer submersed and create an interesting underground maze.

I'queyer


I'queyer is largely dominated by Chamoru Plains, the grasslands of the southern portion of continent. It remains cool or warm year-round, unlike most of Anikira. The beach stretches across a quart of the entire continent's coast. It is abundant in large prey and open for loners to roam at ease.

Chamoru Plains


Central to the continent lies Chamoru Plains, a vast, endless grassland open to all. Safe from Pievunt-An and sheltered by the Kinath, these grasslands are pure and fresh. Wildflowers bloom during the warm months. This area is home to large prey such as bison, elk, and deer. Occasional savannah-style trees dot the land.

Endyt Beach


Running along the majority of the coast, Endyt Beach is a mixture of dirty sand and pure white sand. Brush and plant life sprout up along the water line, but the access is easy by nearly any area of the continent. The southern coast along the gulf is a common retreat spot for wolves. The sand is soft and warm, heated by all day sun exposure.

Somani Island


The lava has cooled, and the waves against the molten earth carved a new isle off Anikira's coast. Somani Island, a slowly evolving utopia, is small but has great potential. Saplings and grass are beginning to grow, while other places still wait for their hidden potential to be exposed. The tiny island may act as a sanctuary from the perils of the mainland.

Tas'alea

Vor'asa

Vor'asa is the dryer region of Tas'alea, but the dunes that spread across the region have copious oases buried in its midst. It is the home of the only sign of humankind that the wolves of the island ever encountered, and also a large saltwater cove that douses the Northern portion of the island with ocean water.

Adeli's Cove

On the northern horn of the island, Adeli's Cove has been carved out from the earth after years and years of tides washing across the dirt. There is very little beach in the cove, apart from the innermost waterfront where the beach is a mere fifteen yards in width. It is here that the SS Rilon washed ashore. The sea water spray sometimes reaches as much as one hundred yards inland upon contact with the cove walls.

SS Rilon

While humans never set foot on Tas'alea, the trade routes just to the west of the island frequently brought ships within two miles of the shore. A nasty hurricane swept one such trade ship aboard. The SS Rilon, a large cargo ship, was beached in Adeli's Cove, where the ship has remained wedged into the sand fo more than a dozen years. The wood has deteriorated some with the times, but it provides adequate shelter and plenty of space to the wolves who inhabit Vor'asa.

Aisu Dunes

Most of the northern region of Tas'alea is covered by live dunes. Unlike the desert, the temperature is moderate and trees dot the dunes. There is the occasional freshwater oasis nestled between the dunes to provide water to the lifeforms in Vor'asa. While there may not be much shelter, the dunes are filled with life such as burrowing spiders, birds, and small rodents such as meerkats and gophers.

Kydifi's Pass

On the southern border between Vor'asa and R'imdar rests Kydifi's Pass. Near the southern border, the dunes transition to a more mountainous height, creating the northern edge of the bowl basin. Here wildlife runs rampant, and there is a single flat path through the mountains to enter R'imdar. The pass often has rock slides and, during the winter, avalanches that leave the pass nearly impossible to enter or exit.

R'imdar

The vast basin of R'imdar encompasses nearly half of the island of Tas'alea. The drainage from the heavily rained island congregates here, and the geysers developed with the arrival of the gross amount of seismic activity. The lava bridge is the neutral point for transit between Tas'alea and Anikira.

Delia Basin

Covering a vast amount of central Tas'alea, Delia Basin is the lowest point of the island and the area that all water run-off passes through. Water that pools throughout the basin is fresh and teeming with life, providing a hunting ground for lone wolves to stalk large prey as well as smaller fish within the pools. The basin will sometimes flood during high tide, and the water rises rapidly with strong rainfall on the island.

Geysers of Nysm

Scattered across the western region of Delia Basin, the volcanic activity created a hot spot. Geysers spew copious amounts of blazing hot steam into the air at random intervals throughout the day. There are a variety of sizes, and some of the geysers are not very pronounced. These small geysers are mere cracks in the earth that, if not careful, can scald an unsuspecting wolf as they walk by.

Aleisul Crossing

The freshly cooled lava from the explosion of Pievunt-An spread far into the sea, connecting the land masses of Anikira and Tas'alea. While it is not exceptional wide, the rock bridge is very sturdy and ragged. Some areas were scooped out by ocean waves as they molded the lava into its current form. The bridge is the only connection between the two regions, and as such is an important landmass.

Kal'dyne

Kal'dyne is home to the tropical creatures of Tas'alea. The Waryck Jungle hides the dangerous animals that prowl the island. The lagoon is one of the most beautiful locations in the jungle, but only if you can make your way there. Wolves who do not wish to be found may find refuge here.

Uchai Lagoon

Nestled along the coastline in the jungle, Uchai Lagoon is a constantly warm, green-rimmed water source. The water rises a mere four feet year round, but it never runs dry. It is separated from the ocean by a beautiful reef. The lagoon is salt water, but it is full of brightly colored tropical fish that hide in the reefs that have divided the lagoon from the ocean. The edges are line with boulders and coarse gravel.

Hat'moru

The waters of Uchai Lagoon hide a cave as old as time. Hat'moru is carefully nestled in the rocky edge of the lagoon, while jungle foliage disguise the cave's entrance from prying eyes. The only way to enter the cave is by wading through the two feet of water at its entrance. Within the cave, various small pools of fresh water are hidden, as well as huge stalactites and stalagmites forged by time.

Waryck Jungle

A large majority of Kal'dyne is nestled deep within the Waryck Jungle. Some of the most exotic creatures, including jaguars, anacondas, baboons, spider monkeys. The jungle spreads from one coast to the other, and some areas are so dense that they are not navigable. Wolves braving the Waryck Jungle need to exercise caution near water for fear of piranhas and crocodile attacks.

Ridge of Vesirtin

Along the northern border of Kal'dyne lies the Ridge of Vesirtin. While it is not very high, it is a visible divider between the jungle and the central basin. Here the foliage is more traditional, with small oak saplings, evergreen trees, and larger maple trees covering the top of the ridge. The heaviest rains in Tas'alea fall upon the ridge, where the water rushes down both sides into the basin and the jungle.
