The Desert of Shecalde lies far to the South East of the Ashen Coast and is known to be the home for Tieflings and Desert Elves.
It is made up of Districs which tend to be geographically centred. Each district encompases an erg (Dune field), reg (rocky highland plateau), hamada (rocky plain), oasis or billabong (water holes), mesa (desert mountain) or canyon (deep narrow valley). For instance, what knowledge is known of the Shecald comes from an ex-inhabitant of the ‘ Red Canyon’ district (‘Zdennt Sil’ in the local Tiefling language). To the west of ‘ Red Canyon’ is the District of the ‘ Flowing Erg’ (‘Likhonni po Shtem’ literally ‘Sand that progresses’) and to the north east is the ‘ Glowing Mesa’ district (‘Girennt Silont’).
It is understood that the Shecalde is criss-crossed by trading and caravan routes that tend to link this vast area into a loose confederation of sometimes warring, though mostly peaceful tribes and settlements.
Very little is currantly know about the Shecald, save for the few scraps of information revealed above.
