    Bright Lands (Empire of, desert)

    by Amy "Theala Sildorian" Crittenden

    Campaigning in the Empire of the Bright Lands is for DMs who want to run desert adventures with an Arabian feel, want to explore a devolving society, and enjoy exploring lost civilizations. The Bright Lands offers encounters with a trapped society of Suel who have degenerated from their Imperial glory, with a society of centaurs, dervishes, and opportunities for complex political intrigue.

    The Bright Lands is set south of Greyhawk, and southeast of Hardby. The Duchy of Urnst lies to the north north-east. The Bright Lands is bordered by the Abbor-Alz and the Cairn Hills. There is very little access to water and resources in the desert, requiring players to think about routes and supplies. Rary the Traitor makes his home here, and there is ongoing conflict between his forces (led by Lord Robilar), the desert centaurs, the dervishes, and the tribesmen who live here. Intrigue between these power groups is possible. The Bright Lands is home to two lost civilizations: Ithar and Sulm. The Ghost Tower of Inverness is set here.
