The Rise and Fall
Life in the barrens is a harsh one to most. The dry desert winds constantly erode away at the many canyons and cliffs in the region. Only the most hearty of people can live life in the desert villages laid out throughout the land. The vast majority of the inhabitants of the Barrens live in the city of Zul’Gurara which has become quite inhabitable due to the complex irrigation infrastructure.
The region is a prime adventuring location due to the rumors of large amounts of treasure from empires of antiquity hidden throughout. Because there are many unsuspecting enterprising people trying to claim their stake of treasure, it has made bandit raids a common occurrence. Any who wish to cash in on these potential gold mines are warned to proceed with great caution.
