The Thousand Kingdoms
Death’s Edge is a strip of barren land that preceded the Creeping Waste in its march across the continent and now surrounds it.
As you cross Death’s edge, life becomes progressively scarcer. The ground becomes infertile, dry and cracked; eventually turning to rocks and sand. Even the hardiest creatures retreated before the advance of the waste.
As you get closer to the waste, water becomes rare, and the little that remains becomes undrinkable.
