The eastern hemisphere of Zargos, Eldamar, is populated by several continents and islands of varying sizes, these lands support thousands of realms as well as numerous races and cultures. The technological level differs from one land to the next as if each is a whole world unto itself. Bucmar, in the southwest, has alchemical and steam powered machines, while its neighbor to the east, Alda’nador, is an elven realm of science and magic. Meanwhile, the lands of Corrella and Vhaleim still rely on the blood and sweat of their populace as well as the sword and wizardry. The lands of Averash, Therren and Tu’kol vary within each region from stone age tools to black powder.
