To the east of the Dyrewood rises the imposing range of mountains known as the Barebones. Providing the spine to the continent of Lyssia, the Barebones are home to a number of Werelords, although true dominion over such a fractured and hostile land is quite impossible. Beyond the Barebones lies the desert state of Omir, with the mountains effectively separating these warring lands from the rest of the continent. In addition to Stormdale, home to the Staglords Duke Manfred and Earl Mikkel, the smaller cities of Riven and Windfell, at the top and the bottom of the Barebones, provide safety, security and commerce for the region's populace.
