Campaign of the Month: March 2008
The Nemedian Chronicles
|The Pictish Wilderness, or Pictland, is the last remnant of the great uncivilized West which remains after the Hyborian invasion. This region, which once stretched from the Western Ocean to the borders of ancient Acheron, now is reduced to a strip of wilderness a tenth its original size. Pictland is bounded on the north by the Eiglophian Mountains, on the east by the Black River, on the west by the ocean, and on the south by Zingara.
The Pictish Wilderness is virgin forest, filled with oaks and maples, and haunted by creatures thought extinct by the Hyborian world. Hyborian scouts have reported saber-tooth tigers, giant pythons, apes and stegosaurs, as well as the more usual wolves, bears and elk. Nearly any forest creature (either modern or prehistoric) might be found somewhere in Pictland and the Pictish forests could conceal anything. In addition to the wide variety of normal animals, there are many creatures in the Pictish Wilderness who “remember” the worship of Jhebbal Sag. Such animals are generally slightly larger and more intelligent than normal, and are more easily controlled by Pictish shamans.
