Tales of Skytopia
The Iron Plains
The Iron Plains are a vast expanse of grassy fields, occupying a great swath of the Earth. The yellow sea of swaying grass is interrupted by frequent great gobs of black iron or other strange, glimmering metal fragments that give the area its name. These metal fragments have fallen from Skytopia – specifically, from the smelters and forges of Drachma. Over time, the island has moved and its shadow no longer lies over the Iron Plains – making them relatively safe for looters of Earth tribes. Nowadays, scavengers fight over the precious magical ores that have been discarded here, and the Iron Plains are stained with the blood of greedy but unfortunate Earth-dwellers.
