Shadow the Nightmare Lord
The Land to the East!

Here is the map to everyone who cares of what I had envisioned for the new world. I will explain a quick rundown of the land and it’s legends. Keep in mind this was all based in the middles ages at the time and so the land and it’s people were envisioned to be primitive. And thanks to Ascended Master’s idea of the land being sealed away in time this can help finish the lacking idea on how it appears into the world.

The land in general

The land is mainly low flat land, provided a few high spots. When I looked at the old map of HVM I saw that there was little to no flatland and so I wanted to make the majority of it flat grassland/savanna to help make it unique.


Suna/Outcast Desert

Now I know what some of you are thinking, why is it called the Outcast Desert and not Suna? Well in truth it’s just a nick name of Suna. Remember how in the golden age of HVM many outcasts often went into the Suna Desert and so people kept making the joke calling it Outcast Desert because of the main type of characters that visited it. So that’s why I had the artist dub it by it’s quote unquote nick name as a pun off the nostalgia of HVM.

Oasis Metropolis

A desert stone village founded by the many outcasts and refuges of Anadoria, they have taken up root beside the Reservoir Reserve as is the best place in the desert with plenty of fresh water.

The land was rumored to have been discovered by a traveler known as Mr. Vanilla. He realized after being on the island for some time that the land has rich soils. Once he returned to the city of his origins word spread and so the many farmers who later settled the land named it after the supposed founder.

West and East Bridgeport City

Once a single city divvied in two on all sides, the people threatened to not only destroy their city but themselves. So their god split the city into with a large canyon dividing the two halves from one another. However both sides had friends and family on either sides and long to see them again. So settling aside their differences the two cities now divvied started building a stone and metal bridge to reconnect to one another. It had taken more than one hundred years of none stop labor to complete this massive structure given their technology but they had finely reunited the twin cities into one again and vowed never again shall their people fight among themselves.

The Sunken City was once the most prosperous and wealthy kingdom in the entire world but the people got greedy and stopped paying tribute to their water goddess. So having enough of these people, not tributing what was owed to her, the goddess is said to have given a gentle kiss and sent forth a tidal wave to wipe out all of the people. She then commanded the waters to curse the grounds and sink the city into the muck and mud to forever entomb the souls and wealth of the kingdom for her own. Many treasure hunters and tomb raiders have tried to sneak into the Mud Kiss Marshes and plunder what belongs to the water goddess but none have prevailed past the sinking marshes and so have become part of her collection of bodies and souls among her vast treasures.

Ash Mountains/Ash Mountain Village

Long ago a large city was settled atop the once named Tri Dragon Mountains. Protected from the outside world and with endless supply of food and water the people lived in peace with the vast abundance of dragons resting on the mountains. But one day when a drought set in, food and water became harder to find. The humans growing more dispirit killed a new bore dragon to feed their bellies. This angered the dragons greatly and the black dragon wanting revenge for the loss of the hatchling convinced the other dragons to kick the humans off the mountains by force.

And yet it only lead to their downfall, the humans not wanting to budge from their homes, the dragons used their breath of fire to smoke them all out and thus drove them off the mountain. However because of the dry foliage when the dragons used their fire it spread wildly and out of control. It soon killed off even more food and thus drove the pray off the mountain. The mountains then turned black as coal from the endless burns. Unfortunately the fires became so intense that the ground baked and hardened to the point that not plants could take root and so there was no more food on the mountains.

The dragons soon either left the mountains or died of starvation. The mountains were later named by the surviving humans the Ash Mountains for that was all that now covered the three peaks of their once called home. Yet even though life on the Ash Mountains seems lifeless, bitter and quiet the people of the settlement past the river known now as the Ash Mountain Village still tell stories that the Black Dragon who started the war is still up on the mountains harboring an ever growing hatred towards the humans who the beast clamed started this destruction.

They now rest weary of strangers for even though they rest by the river food is hard to come by from having only the seemingly lifeless Ash Mountains to the North, the great canyon to the west and they are not ones to share what little they have. Even though they could leave and start a new somewhere else to choose to stay for they know not where else to go and nor does a one think that they could make the journey. But also they are weary of one another, they feel that if they tried to leave someone would take what food they have and so wouldn’t be able to make the trip to greener pastures.

This section of land also houses a labyrinth of many small to large caves that can act as wind tunnels and thus make the winds inside seem more powerful than those outside. This land is above all the most dangerous of all the areas in the eastern lands for not only it’s harsh terrain but also of the vast array of creatures that have adapted to this extreme land that can easily hunt and or kill any other creatures that cross their paths. Trivial in these parts are not advised unless you have a death wish.

Serpent Spell Mound

A demon serpent rose up from the ground no bigger than a thumb nail and began to eat everything. Each time it devoured something, be it rock, plant or animal it grew to the size of that it ate. Growing bigger by the second never resting or growing ill from it’s meals it continued to grow none stop and began to threaten the world itself. Until a lone and powerful sorcerer appeared out of nowhere to challenge the best. The battle ensued for three days and nights and after the scourer reached critical point, the scourer used every last scrap of power left in him, he let the serpent swallow him whole.

The serpent appearing to have won, continued on it’s rampage of glutinous consumption. Until a bright light began to glow from the beasts might belly and starting from the serpents core it began to transform into as mass of dirt and stone covered in layers of plant life. The best whaling out it’s last breath collapsed and became part of the planet’s surface still maintaining it’s shape to this day. And where did this supposed hero comes from?
