The Savage Tide
The Central Plateau
Thrust up from the central highlands of the isle is a large plateau that once contained the glorious Olman city of Thanaclan. Mountainous hills on one side and a great river canyon on the other side surround this central volcanic mount. Its ghostly, often fog enshrouded heights stand separated from the rest of the island by 3,000 foot cliffs.
A vast craterous lake dominates the center of the plateau. Grasslands and a small forest surround the lake, which exhibits cooler climes than the jungle that rings the plateau down on the surface of the isle. There is little evidence of the city that once stood here over 1,000 years ago. Some stone paving from the roads that led to and from the city remains, but little else does. A narrow causeway that once climbed from the jungle below to the city proper is in exceedingly poor condition, necessitating a difficult and dangerous climb over the final stretch of the journey, barring aerial or magical transport.
