Wrath of the Righteous
An immense plateau , known before Age of Lost Omens as the Northmounds but today called the Wounded Lands,
separates the eastern portion of the Worldwound from the west. The Sarkora River, one of the most heavily traveled Sarkorian trade routes in the previous age , runs along the plateau’s southern and western cliffs, forming what was once the most heavily populated region of the nation . The formerly well-traveled waterway passed by such thriving cities as Storasta, Raliscrad, and Undarin, along with dozens of smaller towns and villages. But today, the region is a nightmare of ruins and Abyssal horrors, demonic creatures slipping down from the plateau to the northeast or creeping along the river bottom.
Overgrown, abandoned Storasta anchors the southern end of this region, while Undarin, the realm of Areelu Vorlesh, the half-fiend witch who orchestrated the Worldwound’s creation, anchors the northern end. Travel through Riftshadow is made difficult by the countless demons walking Riftshadow’s crumbling riverside roads, plying the tainted waters of the Sarkora on demonic barges, and flying the stark skies above, but at least there are many places amid the region’s numerous ruins and cliffside caves where travelers can hide from these predators .
