The Blighted Lands
Just North of The Arcana Citidel is an area of land so saturated with magic that nothing can grow. For centuries the Arcana Citidel used the area for magical experiments. Today the Citidel has forbidden any further experiment here for fear of a catastrophic detonation of the magical energies in the land. Only to small ares of land can support crops of any kind acting as oasis in a hostile environment.
