The Endless Desert
Like The Wastes, the Endless Desert is a region of the Imperial continent that is sparsely populated and is claimed by the Empire though they exert almost no control over it at all. No one knows how big the desert is: all attempted crossings have either ended in failure or never been seen again, and even sailing around its border has been a failure do t the fierce sandstorms that blow off the desert. Small groups of peoples do live in the desert, mostly wandering tribes who cluster around the many oasis that dot the desert. Rumors of Kenku tribes and other non humans who live in the desert also persist.
Very few resources flow from the Endless Desert, but traders from the Voestiine Steppe and the rest of the Empire do venture into the desert. Legends of lost cities and Elven and Dwarven treasure do persist as well, drawing adventurers and treasure seekers into the desert as well, though few return.
