Thuria and Beyond
The fabled “Wolf-land” of demons and sorcerers, Hyrkania is an ill-defined, borderless expanse of sub-humid to semiarid prairie, steppe, high desert, taiga forest, and tundra lying east of the Vilayet Sea. The northern coast of the Vilayet is described as marshy, with snow-gleaming mountains far to the north.
