Atlaia

Atlaia

Densely packed, gnarled jungles and dry savannahs punctuate Atlaia’s landscape. A lengthy range of ancient mountains, called The Ogun, run across the land and provides a natural barrier to travel from west to easet. The thickest of the jungles in this land is called the OluIgbo, named after the Orisha of the jungles. Interspersed throughout this region are numerous tribal kingdoms, each dwelling in the remnants of the ancient empire over which they hold stewardship. The Atlaians themselves divide into twelve great kingdoms, each ruled by a clan that proclaims a venerable ancestry extending back to the time of the Old Empire. Though the sages of Atlaia say that the Old Empire was also called Atlaia, this is not true. Some Hyborian scholars have found esoteric references to Atlaia in ancient Acheronian texts, suggesting the region is at least as old as that evil empire and perhaps predates it. A now lost copy of the ancient Codes of Xoth is said to make reference to the regions, but that is was a land of primitive savages in ancient times and so the Old Empire might have been founded by an invading force sometime after the ancient Lemurian sorcerer wrote his evil tales.
