Into the Sands
The Great Glass Desert
Dominates the northern portion of Northern Ur. An enormous expanse of desert where almost all of the sand was at one time transformed into glass. The landscape is treacherous, hazardous and almost completely barren. Glass at the perimeter of the region is scavenged and used for crafting, most notably by the inhabitants of Al Muhammara. It is said that glass from the Great Glass Desert has magical properties, but any attempts to examine it for such have been met with frustration and failure by wizards and druids alike.
Verbal history of the region tells of a great battle between ancient wizards known as Sandcasters that turned the entire desert to glass. The desert is sometimes referred to as “The Waste” or “The Devil’s Sand.”
