Obsidian Plains


The Obsidian Plains are an area in the southwest Direlands. They are a perfectly round, raised plateau of obsidian, scarred with deep cracks and speckled with columns of obsidian, strange blue crystals, and giant mushrooms. Surrounding the Obsidian Plains, one will find the Black Hills, a ring of tall, narrow, blackened plateaus, most of which are inaccessible.

"Sprawling across much of the lower Direlands is this ominous magical wasteland. Strange crystals, seeded long ago by magic gone awry, just from a sea of volcanic glass. Neophytes can expect a swift death at the hands of the cloaked Virindi or other fiendish creatures that roam these parts. The few veteran adventurers returning safely from here claim some Virindi carry special gems that skilled jewelers can turn into powerful magical artifacts."[1]


The Obsidian plains were formed in Empyrean Shadow War, in the year RE 895[2][3] when the Yalaini Council of Five trapped Bael'Zharon in the crystal array.[2][3] The explosive power released destroyed the Jailne Lyceum, where the council had set their trap, and all of the coucil members, save Asheron, were killed.[2][3] The Explosion also ravaged the landscape, creating the Obsidian Plains.[2]
