Chandrar

From The Wandering Inn Wiki

Chandrar, also referred to as the Windswept Lands,[1] is the largest continent and is mostly composed of desert. It is populated by Humans, String People, Garuda and even Beastkin.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The people who live here are generally considered strong of spirit and resilient, moreso than those of other continents. It is also the continent with more visible evil than any other continent.[2] Slavery is common and wars are frequent on this desert continent.

History[edit | edit source]

Chandrar has a long history with many kingdoms rising and falling over the centuries. Much of that history has been lost to time.

Back when Germina and the other Shield Kingdoms were still young, Zeikhal was flowering grasslands, and not the vast desert it is in modern times.[3] it was still green when it was ruled by the Great Wyrms. The Wyrms would eventually be ousted from Chandrar by a coalition led by the remaining Dragonlords of the time.[4]

Over ten thousand years ago, Vampires had taken Chandrar like they did the rest of the world. One of their own, the Quarass of the time, was convinced that their influence must be removed. She went to one of their greatest lairs and poisoned their bloodwells. She was killed, but her next incarnation led the army of Germina to finish off the survivors. The nine Shield Kingdoms and other nations of the era rose up, and Chandrar was the first continent to drive off the Vampires.[5]

The longest magical typhoon on record, which had ended the Faertrade Era, landed on Chandrar and changed the landscape and climate for six months.[6]

Around ten years ago, Flos Reimarch nearly conquered all of Chandrar, before entering his slumber.

Geography[edit | edit source]

It is located south of Izril.

Most of Chandrar's lands are inhospitable and have dry arid ground, but it also has valley and places where nature blooms.[7]
