Riadus World Map

Reylan is one of the largest continents on Riadus. Located in the southern hemisphere, it stretches nearly 3000 miles from the edge of the arctic in the south to the humid sub-tropics in the northwest. The climate varies greatly across the land, from the great frozen wastes in the south, barren deserts and swamps in the north, and temperate forests and plains between the mountains along the coasts.

Several nations and peoples call Reylan home. Most of these nations are human kingdoms, though elves, dwarves and gnomes have their own lands. Other races, such as wulfen, goblins, orcs and kobolds, while having no official or recognized lands of their own, live within the lands of the other, more civilized races.
