"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."

The AreasAldri Peaks and The Fjord
Aldri Peaks is a mountain range towards the top middle of Northbound’s map. The Northern end slopes down into the Nathernaan sea, creating a rocky shore, and builds into slimmer, taller peaks as you move south. On the Syndranian side the range sits snug against the tundra, where geysers and a lake can be found embedded in the rocky meeting point. Next to the large lake is a fjord that drains out into the sea. East of there lies a series of caves on the mountain’s face, overlooking the tundra and shore below.
The majority of Syndrana’s northwestern land is flat, breezy tundra, cooled by the nearby water and the high elevation of Aldri Peaks. The land is rocky and has no tree population until you travel far east towards Mount Passless, instead being covered by bushes and shrub and even wildflowers during the warmer months. Splitting the tundra in two is a long, twisting river that branches off towards Aldri peaks at one point and then continues on to the lake in central Syndrana.
Central Syndrana refers to the large lake in the center of this region, as well as the feilds and forests east of it. Beaches and rockier cliffs alike line it’s shores, and a series of rivers feeds smaller lakes between it and Mount Passless. A small swampy area can be found in the norther region, as well as a lush waterfall that pours from the mountain near the hot springs. Within the lake itself is a decently sized island, often called Old Ruins Island, which houses a strange, human structure made of wood and metal called a "Lighthouse".
Mount Passless gets it’s name for having the tallest peaks and most merciless terrain of any of the other mountains in Northbound, making it virtually impossible to cross over without traveling through the valley to the south (the entrance of which is called The Neck, and belongs to Nyamene Valley territory). The northernmost part of the mountain runs right along the edge of the Nathernaan sea, looking out over dangerous, jagged rocks. Along the eastern face of the mountain is uneven, brittle land, with hot springs and cliffs and even a cave pressed in to it’s side. The southern portion fades off into the Deadwood, a dry and hazy forest that long ago lost it’s health.
The southern portion of Syndrana is made up of vast fields, cut down the middle by a wide river. There are patches of thick, untamed forest as well, with the Deadwood lying furthest to the east. This area is a particularly popular spot, as it is large and often heavily populated with prey. The fields are typically forgiving terrain, but the further into the forests you go the less pleasant the area is.

Pack Owners & Leaders: Razza
The Guardians of Syndranna have laid claim to a vast portion of what is considered Central Syndrana, with their westernmost border being the lake at the heart of the region and their easternmost being Mount Passless. The southern edge of their territory follows an invisible line from the lake to the mountains, including a small portion of the Deadwood forest and a cave within Mount Passless, but nothing further south than that. Territory is marked partially up the mountainside to include the cliffs and hot springs on the mountain. The upper border ends where the forest - dubbed the Eastern Shelt - does, swooping back down to meet against the edge of the lake to include the waterfall and the smaller swamp in the north of their land.
