Stretching southward from the Great Eastern Desert, lies the immense wasteland known only as the Blasted Lands. Once a lush forest of green filled with fierce warriors of Light, its current state lies as a warning to the mortals of the Realms. The city of Mistaniq and the surrounding forests were laid to waste by the actions of the greedy ruler: the Pharaoh Ramases. Offered eternal life in a dark pact with Vl'arescht in exchange for the lives of his people, he became undead. Rains of flame and acid fell from the sky, destroying the verdant countryside until nothing was left but sand. Over the years, many foolhardy adventurers seek fortune and power within the dark domain, but most become forever lost within its deadly terrain. Many foul things walk the lands but it is said that the powers of light still have a tenuous foothold here.
With the coming of the Shattering, the lands adjacent have fallen to the same fate as Mistaniq, though not for the same reasons. The land is lifeless and choked by sand as the Desert of Despair crept inches beyond its border.
