Across the Shargon Straight to the south of Khorvaire lies the mysterious continent of Xen’drik. Once the home of the mighty civilization of the giants, an ancient cataclysm shattered the land and left the great cities in ruin. Now, thousands of years later, the jungle has reclaimed the ruins and the giants wander Xen’drik as paltry reflections of their proud ancestors.
Also of great danger in the jungles of Xen’drik are the drow. They are the elves who remained after escaping slavery. The majority of the drow worship the scorpion god Vulkoor and call themselves the Vulkoori. Aside from their xenophobic savagery, little else is known about them.
The other two major tribes are the Sulatar and the Umbragen; the firebinders and shadow walkers respectively. Neither of these tribes is even as well known as the Vulkoori.
For travelers seeking to explore the jungles of Xen’drik and beyond, Stormreach is the first, last, and only port of call. Stormreach lies on the Skyfall Peninsula where it was built on the ruins of a ancient settlement of the giants. Once a pirate port, the kingdom of Galifar crushed the pirate fleet and since then Stormreach has been a free town under its own rule. All of the dragonmarked houses have enclaves there. Morgrave University, the Library of Korranberg, and the University of Wynarn are all also represented.
