[from the Overview on p3]
Eastern Talislanta is a place of danger and barbaric splendor, its fabled riches and mysteries drawing adventurers from across the continent. A few find their fortune. Others find terror and horrifying death.
The East includes the barren steppes of the Greylands, the chill mountains of Xanadas, the lush jungles of Chana, and other extremes of terrain. Much of it is unexplored, and home to dangerous predators and hostile sentients.
