To the North west of the region known as Fortunes bay there lies a land of dense forest and imposing hillsides. A land full of Dangerous beasts and a range of large herds roaming. It is known simply as 'The Badlands' and is home to most of the regions Beast races. The most dominant Beast races can all be found there in villages that range in size of Dog/Wolf/Cat/Tiger/Lion/Panther/Bull/Reptile/Bear/Boar. Many of the Villages focus on central points of position based on the assets the beasts are most suited too (rivers, valleys, woodland etc). The region also has many places of magical power and some Villages have large totems which act as a focal point and are centered around them. One of these locations was recently upset and stripped of it's power by a group of mages who have upset the balance and this has started to affect the greater region as a whole making it a darker and even less hospitable place to visit for those that are not local to the area. Other locations like this are protected fiercely but there may still be a few that have yet to be located. Many of the Beast races live in a relatively peaceful existence in the Bad Lands but are very suspicious of those that are not Beast folk. The most powerful of the tribes are the Badlands Bull Beasts also know as the Taurians. They are Strong and very proud with a very large population and ruled by one known only as the Great Bull. No outsider that is not a Beast person has been known to have visited this Village and any trading or contact with the outside world has been negotiated through the other smaller villages.
