Some of the oldest human ruins in the world lie scattered throughout the interior jungles of Garund. The reclusive tribes from whom the forests and wildlands take their name trace their heritage to forgotten kingdoms of great achievements, but they have fallen far since the days of their zenith, and their glorious past remains a mystery.
No accurate maps of Garund’s interior exist, and the native tribes of the Expanse seldom declare formal borders. Several locales within the trackless wild attract potent malevolent spirits, sentient plant colonies, juju zombie cults, or similar hazards, making them shunned by natives and explorers alike. The western shores are favored by pirates and smugglers; the inner lands hold vast jungles where no law holds sway.
