    Disnath is a dark, under populated soot-covered industrial city, the population of the ruined temple district were turned into shadows and necropolitans long ago and cannibalistic skulks and packs of ghouls prowl the streets at night. A Master of Flies (Savage Species prestige class) and his awakened giant spiders spin webs in dark alleys and abandoned buildings selling silk and the urchins they don't eat to slavers. In the undercity rat swarms carry the Zombie Plague and duergar forges belch black smoke into the city above as tireless golems hammer away in unison beneath the streets, giving the city a pulse.

    Powerful merchant guilds run the city and vie for control of the weapon, spider silk, graft and slave trade, prophets of a mad dreaming god and cults of Pazuzu and Dagon are rampant among the poor. The city's nobles are decadent vampire spawn who idle away the night hours in an unending sanguinary grand ball. Ronin half-flesh golems, renegade swordsages and outlaw shadowdancers make a living snatching the best craftsmen for rival guildlords, rounding up jungle aberrations and ghouls for the fleshwarper shops and smuggling golden lotus wine into the city or smuggling spidersilk out.

    Disnath is a city-state of many races but the city officials and city guard are made up entirely of dran who are not members of the ruling merchant houses. Those who are not dran can be artisans, craftsmen or shop owners, but 90% of the other races are slaves to one of the ruling merchant houses. Slaves work the cities farms, mines (iron, gold, and copper), rowing galleys, or as slave soldiers and gladiators.

They grow unnaturally fast and when cut, slowly writhe for a few moments leaking sickly yellow sap and releasing spores that leave irritating red whelps. Fae creatures burst into masses of writhing tentacles when attacked and the dark sidhe brew an addictive golden lotus wine that causes vivid dreams and nightmares, slowly eating away the addicts sanity.

    Dark Sidhe - Fey elves corrupted by the far realm sacrifice intruders to an awakened fiendish dire ape they worship as a god. They start life as shark toothed Petals for a 100 or so years then form a red veined, black, pulsing, oozing cocoon. The vile ooze is one of the ingredients in the golden lotus wine

    Vale of Shadows This land is protected by giant eagle riding elves who guard their land fiercely, those of good alignment who are not openly hostile will be given a single warning to never return, those that hesitate are slain. The giant eagle patrols number 10 strong and can call upon 2-5 more patrols for back up within 5 minutes, the riders are all arcane archers.
    Adventurers from the Vale are outcasts and cannot return (without a groovy DM plot line anyway).

    North Guard and Stone Holm are dwarven cities ruled by hereditary kings.
    Stone Holm mines iron, rubies, and silver and trades raw materials, alcoholic beverages and finished goods with Mithral City for foodstuffs, wood, finished goods, gold and mithral, a small number of dwarves also work in TrogBane's and DarkWall's mines.
    North Guard mines iron, emeralds, copper, and opals and trades ornate masterwork weapons, armor and jewelry with Melgor for cloth, beer, bread, pearls and wine.

    The mountain dwarves of Stone Holm and the fireblood dwarves of North Guard (Dragon Magic) do not like each other, but there is no open hostility beyond the occasional barroom brawl, just jokes about the poor mining and shoddy craftsmanship of the other.
    Dwarven adventurers from these cities start out with a masterwork weapon or armor in addition to normal starting gear.

    Nis is a place of lush tropical jungle filled with exotic magical and or dangerous plants, giant snakes, brightly colored birds, a seemingly infinite number of insects, and below crumbling ruins dwell degenerate serpentfolk. Written on some of the ancient monoliths in the Nurian tongue are spells of conjuration, invocation and divination schools of magery.
  • Deep Rainforest
    Mile high trees where the light of day never reaches the black water below. Each of the five layers: the overstory, the canopy, the understory, the shrub layer, and the flooded forest floor are home to different races.

    The overstory is the hunting ground for all manner of flying predators. It is also home to tiny ravenous fey creatures that after a few years form cocoons and emerge with brightly colored wings. They change from chaotic evil to chaotic good with no memories of what or who they ate when they get their wings.

    In the upper half of the canopy dwell primitive humans, not dumb, just tech challenged due to the lack of metal. Verdant Bloodline Sorcerers are very common.

    In the lower half of the canopy there are psionic Elf-like plant creatures that grow like peas in a pod from a two mile long tangle of 10' diameter vine. Those "born" in the same pod are considered sisters, those from the same vine are a tribe. They can commune with the vine through its flowers. They all look like female elves with skin the same color as the flowers on the vine. And of course the only thing they hate more than other species are the other tribes of elves.

    In the understory are the fungal orcs, spores that grow out of the dead bodies of elves. They look like white, bloated male orcs with mushrooms sprouting out of them. The bodies of other races infested with these same spores are not as hardy. Fey become shriveled and goblin-like, humans resemble rotting hobgoblin zombies.

    The last glimpse of light in the shrub layer is the dismal home to a miserable race of arboreal ogres that are hosts for several creatures and diseases. Limatiks (parasitic stirge-like creatures) infest and control almost every adult arboreal ogre. They spend most of their adult life clinging to an ogres back with its proboscis jammed in the ogre's head. Within a month they meld into the ogres spines becoming an inseparable discolored hump and its wings growing until the hideous abomination can fly. The creatures refer to themselves as Maraks.
    Also at this level are the disgusting troglodyte/shrieker amalgams that expel deafening farts when frightened.

    At the bottom there are endless varieties of nightmarish creatures including huge fungus covered, aquatic, reptillian beasts. They lurk amidst the roots of the sky trees, feeding on the rotting vegetation.
    Glow Sticks (size small treant saplings that have been mummified by the tannic acid in the black water, and are covered in phosphorescent fungus) wander up from here at night.
    A copious quantity of various oozes.

    Here, There Be Dragons

    Trogs are kingdoms of troglodytes with a dragon or family of dragons ruling them. Not much is known about them except that outsiders are welcome additions to the menu and cause of celebration, and bands of two to three hundred occasionally raid small outposts or villages, seemingly at random.
  • Adventurers from here are half dragon/half troglodyte outcasts or heroes on a special quest and probably suitable only for higher level games.

  • Great Wood is the oldest forest and its rumored that the trees whisper to each other. Known inhabitants include dryads, werebears, dire wolverines, and satyrs. The council of ancient awakened oaks tolerates some fey inhabitants and are allied with a clan of werebears.
  • FEAT: Druid Training [Regional] In your homeland, all who show a calling to faith may receive druidic training. Thus, many characters know something of the ways of the druid. Benefit: You can activate spell trigger magic items as if you had 1 level of Druid. Druid also becomes a favored class for you in addition to any other favored class you select. Special: You may select this feat only as a 1st level character. You may have only one regional feat.

  • Lake of Tears is inhabited by halflings who build their houses on floating platforms of reeds. They tie them together into hamlets that they call 'rafts', each raft is ruled by the eldest couple and minor disputes are settled by unarmed combat and the victor claims a braid which they tie to a fishing spear for all to see. They come to shore once a month to gather more reeds and to trade. Living in many of the rafts are dire otters, some halflings bond with these otters from childhood and can ride them.
  • Adventurers from here are halfling rogues who have been cast out, they start out with a shaved head, their clothes, a small knife, a fishing spear, the improved unarmed strike feat for free and a +4 bonus to the swimming skill.

  • Bleak Wood is home to wizened elders (MM IV), bugbears and a race of forest giants (MM II) expert at moving their considerable bulk completely silently and disappearing into the shadowed woods with unnerving skill.

Nomadic human tribesmen ride axebeaks (or use Terror Birds from the Fiend Folio) and follow the herds, they worship the dire lions as avatars of Bast. Merchants of an advanced tribe of hobgoblins from the southern forest have built a temple to Bast as a cover for a trading post. The nomadic tribes trade large quantities of furs for metal goods.

  • Brown Bear Hills A bitterly cold, remote area with only tribes of Eskimos choosing to inhabit it. The foot of the hills are inhabited sporadically by winter wolves & oliphants. The hill tops are rumored to be home to small groups of ice trolls, yeti & a retired (well, semi-retired if approached) frost giant couple.
  • Glokken Glacier Few forms of life are able to endure the harsh, arctic conditions of this large block of ice, & only the insane (or VERY intense adventurers) consider approaching it. Extraordinarily strong cold weather survival skills are required to not die from the elements (wind chill often minus 100 to minus 200). The inner sanctums of the glacier are largely unknown, even by the locals. Inside, a strange area of steamy warm springs & shambling mounds has been immortalized locally with an amazingly melancholy song by the beloved bard Ariel StormWind, mourning the loss of his dear familiar Barney the snow owl & still redefining new depths of sorrow in his hometown of Cabnal.
  • Wintzum A very small village of approximately 100 people along the always frozen river coming down from Glokken Glacier into the Great Seal Lake. Close-knit & strong-willed describe anyone growing up in or calling this remote, brutally cold village home. Very little commerce is done due to nearly all items being used & needed for survival.
  • Kemnuck A small village of approximately 200 people with a great deal of interaction with the local Eskimos due to its proximity to the Great Seal Lake & Brown Bear Hills. Very few tradesmen are to be found here with most of the commerce relagated to seal products. Several times in Kemnuck's history, herds of very well-organized oliphants have trampled large sections of the village, seemingly running in a modified wedge formation.
  • Cabnal The home of Midnight and Ariel StormWind, two bards of great renown, slayers of arctic oliphants, winter wolves and yeti. Approximately 600 people call this incredibly harsh northern town their home. There is a somewhat talented, older leather worker & tanner, specializing in of course wolves. He is respected by the entire town & is responsible for training quite a few of the youth, including Ariel StormWind. A very small jeweler's shop (run by a below average but somewhat in demand faceter) is in the corner of Cabnal as well.
  • Great Seal Lake Almost always frozen solid, this lake has (as expected) a large number of seals calling it home. Oliphants & winter wolves frequently inhabit its shores as well. Popular for seal hunting by not only the many eskimo villages surrouding the lake but also the locals from Kemnuck, Cabnal & Wintzum.

  • Mountains of Madness
    Home to some scattered tribes of Goliaths and a few mining villages of humans, dwarves and gnomes.

  • Dragon Hearts

    An old favorite back in first edition days was our house rule that whoever ate the heart of a dragon had to make a saving throw vs death and if successful was immune to that type dragon's breath weapon. Invariably the characters who got carried away with that sort of thing died eating his fifth or sixth dragon heart, but they had fun while it lasted.
    So for 3.5 have the eater of an adult dragons heart make a DC 20 Fortitude save, failure results in death but if successful...

    9 huge cat eyes (triple normal size, blind in sunlight, low light vision is x4, -2 charisma)
    10 mutate into a lizard folk

  • Ok so you've checked out the charts, is it too random for you? Just use the dragon chart or maybe eating a dragons heart just attracts 1d20 large flies, its all good.
