A continent in the Northwestern hemisphere of O’ous with major cultural settlement by Humans, Elves, Gnomes, Kobolds, Dwarves, Halflings Hobgoblins and other goblinoids as well as minor and/or tribal settlement by Gnolls, Lizardfolk, Orcs and various Giants.
The climate varies from small tropical zones along the south and coasts, through temperate forests and plains and eventually moves into arctic conditions in the tundra and mountains to the far northeast. Almost all settlement is in the plains and forests in the temperate area surrounding the Chalice, a massive fresh water sea atop a high plateau in the continent’s center. Several cultures live along the north coast, where the climate is greatly moderated by a tropical current flowing along the shore and cycling into the Krisanaxessi, a great bay due north of the Chalice.
Uestria is still volcanically and tectonically active, particularly around the Chalice and in the mountains along the western edge. A massive eruption in 7457 destroyed the largest Dwarven city of the time, a place now remembered as Hangvul’s Sorrow.
