Once, Bara Magna was part of a larger world, until a terrible disaster split the planet into three segments. Bara Magna is the largest of these, with the other two now acting as moons to it. While many of the residents of Bara Magna are native to the region, others were trapped there when their homelands broke away.
Bara Magna is home to five major villages: Vulcanus, Iconox, Tesara, Tajun, and Roxtus. The wastelands in between them are home to the nomadic tribe of bone hunters, the beast-like Vorox and Zesk, numerous dangerous desert creatures, and other perils. Despite this, Agori traders and Glatorian fighters frequently travel across the sands for duty or for profit.
Southern Bara Magna is the most heavily populated region and home to all of the known villages. The Skrall now living in Roxtus originally dwelled much further to the north, but came south for reasons as yet unknown. It’s not clear if anyone now lives in the heavily volcanic region beyond the Black Spike Mountains.
While motorized vehicles do exist on Bara Magna, most travel through the desert is done using either mounts or wagons pulled by animals. Sand and sun causes machinery to break down quickly, and anyone stranded in the desert overnight rarely lives to see the sunrise.
