A large grass and scrub desert dominated by rocky outcroppings and little water. It was the location of the long dead Gnomish Empire known as “Andurinthia”. Several walled towns exist on the edges of the Wastes, some in old Andurinthian ghost towns. The safest and most civilized of these is Goodwell. The center of the wastes are harsh and inhospitable, safe only to experienced travelers who know the secret locations of water and shelter.
