Home to the once-mighty Continental Empire, Answar has once again become a continent filled with powerful civilizations, great monsters, warring tribes, and powerful religion. Answar is home to more of the Nine Nations than any of the other continents. Answar is most similar, culturally, to Europe.
In the midst of the desert, there is the land of the great desert merchants. Here, they have built and established a small settled land they have just begun to farm. This small, enterprising land is Sadvala.
To the east is the oldest nation, a holdout from the ancient days of global empire. Prayad is by far the largest nation, but it is riddled with corruption and strife. It is also the home of the mighty and ancient city Naupera.
To the west is Cattana, a land rich in metal, dreams, and death.
To the North lies Saktisali, a land of nearly constant warfare between the settled lands and the raging tribes of subsentients.
Finally, on the southern tip of Answar is Nirvasi. Once home to pirates, theives and every kind of scoundrel, Nirvasi is much more civilized now. Allegedly.
In addition, there are dozens of Unaligned States throughout the continent. These are places which have yet to either coalesce into organized nations or to be swallowed up by one of the existing ones. They are often in a state of war, and are generally considered to be fairly barbaric.
