General Description Geography and Climate
Dambrath is bordered on the south by the Great
Sea and on the north by the Forest of Amtar. To
the west lie the semi-mountainous region known
as the Walls of Halruaa and the great Kethid
Swamp. For hundreds of years, the horder on
the east has been the Traders Way and the River
Ammath. The Dambraii do not claim or want any
part of the Eastern Shaar or the Granuin Forest.
The proper term for a Dambrath citizen is a
Damhrai, the plural and possessive form of this
is Damhraii. Damhrathian or Damhrather are
used only by foreigners.
Dambrath is an open land, with miles of rangeland,
and hundreds of miles of safe coastline.
The Bay of Dancing Dolphins has not suffered a
had storm in five hundred years.
The fields of the ranchos grow a tall (3 to 4)
grass called arkas. The grass is exceptionally
good feed for livestock.
To the north, the Gnollwatch mountains are
not a particularly impressive mountain range.
Mount Hazail, the tallest peak, only reaches
11,500 feet. Most of the mountains average only
9,000 feet. To the west the mountains give way to
the Hills of the Dead Kind which are alive with
streams, grassy knolls, of seasonal groves of fruit
trees, and many other signs of life. The river Ammath
is the largest river in Dambrath, flowing
southeast around the Hills of the Dead Kings.
The Keless river is much busier, affording a fast
road between the mines in the mountains and
the Bay of the Dancing Dolphins.
The Bay of Dancin g Dolphins is truly a treasure
of Dambrath. Sot only is it a safe harbor,
but it is rich in swordfish, red snapper, mahimahi,
and sea bass. It produces a decent crop of
pearls each year, and draws many schools of
friendly dolphins. The ever-present dolphins
wont let a human drown. Dolphins have been a
protected species in Dambrath, ever since one
saved queen Melanith over 300 years ago. Fishermen
follow dolphins to the good schools of fish,
and sailors know that when the bay gets crowded
with dolphins, a major storm is heading north
on the Great Sea.
Most Dambraii have never seen snow. The
summers are hot, but the breezes off the sea cool
the nights. The temperature usually passes 100
during the day, but drops quickly after dark to
lows around 60 degrees. North of the Gnollwatch
mountains the temperature is even hotter, and
the nights arent as cool as nights near the coast.
The rainy season begins in Uktar (November),
and lasts two to three months. There have only
been 12 actual frosts recorded in the last 500
years. This occurrence is always taken as a sign of
extreme displeasure from Loviatar herself.
