Empire of Lightrune
The Abyssal Plains
Located below Sylvania and the Northern Baronies, the Abyssal Plains are home to the vast mushroom fields and rothe herds of the deep elves, as well as serving as trade routes for Underdark miners and as the hunting grounds for any number of monsters. Water is scarce, except for the areas specifically irrigated by the elves, and cave-ins are an ever present danger, sometimes wiping out entire farms in a single blow.
Sites of Note
Mithlaeth: “The Silver City”, as its name translates, is the seat of the deep elves. The deep elves have lived there since time immemorial, joining with the Empire along with their sister city of Dothlaeth during the Demon Incursions of a millenia past. Mithlaeth does a fine trade in gems, silver, and mithril. The city is also home to the Silver Guard, a defense force that, by treaty agreement, is solely devoted to the defense and policing of the Abyssal Plains. While some in the capital may grumble about this, they don’t realize the enormity of the Silver Guard’s task, nor the consequences of failure.
