The Veldt is an immense plateau, mostly covered in savanna, scrubland, and scattered deserts. In the past decade, the nations of Aveir, Barlovia, Coreune, Hallandy, and Turlona have competed for the control of colonies on the Veldt, seeking to exploit the region's gold, diamond, and copper mines; establish coffee plantations; and discover other hidden resources.

Aside from the harsh deserts of Taribeland, the entire coastline of the Veldt has been colonized. However, much of the center of the region is unexplored. Recent expeditions deep into Nasaviland and Zamluno have added those regions to the map, but large parts of Koswebe and Taswane have never been seen by nonnative eyes.


Sheer cliffs and escarpments separate the plateau from the narrow coastal strip. Only in Taribeland and parts of Tanyaka and Lupa Mar is the coastal plain of any significant size. On the plateau, grassy savannas run from horizon to horizon, interrupted only by the occasional marshy river valley. A series of low mountain ranges runs through the center of the plateau, and ridges of rocky outcroppings surround these ranges.

A range of higher mountains runs along the Veldt's northern shore. Inland of these mountains is a prominent rift valley, studded with volcanoes, hot springs, geysers, obsidian domes, and other geothermal features. The coast of Taribeland is a hot and sandy desert that is almost uninhabitable. Inland of Taribeland, the desert turns rocky and is scattered with salt pans and dry lakes.
