Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
The Cynthian Plains is a flat grassland. The yellow grasses grow as high as a man’s waist and waver in the eastern breeze. Weather changes are dramatic and sudden because of the mountains-the riders say the storm clouds lurk and gather on the other side of the World’s End Mountains, hiding behind those mist-enshrouded peaks, and then spring forth to ambush Cynthia with their thunderbolts and pounding rains. Dotting the plains are small copses of trees and exposed boulders, and running across it are rocky streams and creeks, the sources of which are up in the mountains that border the plains. An abundance of wildlife inhabits the place-from small rodents, to deer and wild sheep, to prides of tawny-furred hunting cats.
The Cynthians think of the land as a living being (more knowledgeable scholars realize this is how the Elothians viewed the world, although the belief of the Cynthians are likely more primitive). The goddess they serve is Cynthia; their feelings for the rest are described below.
