Northbound Roleplay

Board Threads Posts Last Post
No New Posts Verthall

Tangled within the tall Imana Mountains is the land of Verthall, made primarily of flower-filled fields and rocky terrain. In the north is Northbound's largest wetland, feeding into the Nathernaan sea and neighboring the secluded Eld Tal Island. Follow to coastline and rivers further south, however, and you may also towering cliffs, patches of forests, or even a large cave system leading to The Skaadlands.

No New Posts Aelcoast

The Nathernaan Sea is most easily accessed at Aelcoast, where a long beach covers the northwestern border. Fresh water sources are found further inland, near the pine forests on the western slopes of Aldri Peaks. In the center of Aelcoast are three great ravines and even a crater, made by meteors long ago.

No New Posts Syndrana

Syndrana is the large and diverse terrain between Aldri Peaks and Mount Passless. Bordering the sea in the northwest is a vast, flat tundra and the Fjords embedded in the mountains, while the southeast is covered by lush fields and thick forests. The rivers, lakes, and hot springs in the east all feed into a huge crescent-shaped lake at the center of Syndrana.

No New Posts Morvir

Near the center of Nortbound's lands is Morvir, a lightly forested area with open, grassy fields in the west and gentle rivers along it's borders. It is well known for the Constellation Ponds as well as the waterfall springs that feed into two large lakes at it's heart.

No New Posts The Skaadlands

The Skaadlands are home to some of the densest, darkest forests in Northbound, consisting of more pine trees than the rest of the map combined. Though that's not to say the land is all doom and gloom. The lake in the west, known as Dragon's Eye, is connected to river, wetlands, and waterfalls all throughout, while the cliffs of the Imana Mountains offer an amazing view of the treetops below.

No New Posts Kilvald

Surrounded by mountains and with trees all around, Kilvald is tucked in the far southeast corner of Northbound. Geothermic activity here is high, with hot springs scattered about and geysers to the north, most commonly reached by traversing through Mount Erihurt's lower elevation passageway. In the west Liden Valley offers a serene waterfall tucked away from the rest of the world, found only by following a thin, inconspicuous stream.

No New Posts Nyamene Valley

The sweeping valley between Mount Passless and Mount Erihurst is beautiful and full of secrets. Take the land at face value and you will see winding rivers, gently sloping hills, and peaceful forests. Look a bit closer and you might find the cave systems, springs, and little hideaways tucked into the surrounding mountains.
