Kingdoms of the Second Age
(Back to Places)
The expansive swamplands to the north are known as the Swallowed Lands. Almost nothing is known of the ancient civilization that lived here before the lands sunk into the ocean, though their buildings and cities seem to have mostly survived intact, pushing their way up out of the swamps.
The Swallowed Lands are populated by many different violent races, notably Kobolds and Lizard Men. The abundant food and warm climate has led to many dangerous and venomous beasts calling the swamps home as well.
With the ancient cities being pushed up out of the swamp, and the ancient dead rising with them, the races otherwise content to stay in the swamps have been pushed south, and some have begun invading the Caldian Territories out of necessity.
