The Wild Lands are a timeless
place that has earned its name. Since before the Second Age, there a
mention of this place, which, according to legend, is exactly the
same now as it was thousands of years ago. More than half of this
lush grassland and jungle is surrounded by hills and mountains.
Various humanoids and nomadic tribes of barbarians wander the land
fighting to survive against the elements, themselves and the
prehistoric beasts that thickly populate the Wild Lands.
Legend has it that this is a
preserve of the gods, a myth perpetuated by the line of onyx columns
that ring the border of the Wild Lands. They are called T'Lea
Shafts. These columns are perfectly smooth and 10 feet in diameter,
rising 40 feet out of the ground to a point at the top. Arcane
writing along their length warns in several different languages that
those who pass into the Wild Lands are doomed to be a part of them
forever. No one knows what they are made of, only that they are
indestructible. There are tales of people who have seen the beast on
the inside of the barrier shying away from it, perhaps because they
know they cannot pass through it.
In any event, people on the
outside fear the place and only the brave or foolhardy have tried to
pass its borders to the lands within the shafts. None have ever been
heard from again.
