Though most well-known for the Great Desert at its heart, southern Thiskel boasts mountains, jungles, and various other biomes as well. Humans, Iengi, Ery’Idayn, Zaedyn, Brech’mar, and Asath call the desert home, while Samiss inhabit the southern jungles.
In the center of the western coast are the Siasursti Mountains. Much of the west coast is jungle, aside from regions just north of the range which have been cleared by humans. The Siasursti boast several Zaedyn cities, a couple Brech’mar nations, tribal human societies, and Samiss in the deeper parts of the jungle. Sourced at the southern end of the range is the Hydaruri River, which travels along the eastern coast, through jungles, across the southern end of the continent until emptying into the Riath on the southwestern coast.
The Great Desert
The largest desert of Aserra fills the heart of South Thiskel. Mainly home to humans, Ery’Idayn, and Asath, it is a harsh, dry, hot place, but there are still resources for those who know how to obtain them. Boarders of the desert are mostly grassland, sometimes climbing up into arid mountains, or gradually becoming greener as they near the coastlines and jungles. Along the northeastern coast are the Lisr Mountains, ending at the Bay of Khar which dips into the land. To the west of the Bay of Khar is the Tephiztia Mountains, a range which runs down the western side of Thiskel, except for the fertile Girna Peninsula, and follows along the southwestern coast toward the southern peninsula where it finally ends. This makes the Tephiztia Range the longest mountain range on Aserra.
Separated from the rest of South Thiskel by the Tephiztia Range, this land runs rich with rivers down from the mountains to the east, and has the Riath Sea to the west.
The southernmost point in Thiskel is covered in dense forests. Rivers run through, and a mountain range runs along the spine, but it is known to be populated by fierce lizard-men and their dragon masters, so it is mostly unexplored to humans.
