GEOGRAPHY OF ARTHYA
The Ghostlands, also known as Teknia, is one of the many nations of Arthya (Dreamlands). It's an archipelagic nation east of New Gallia surrounded with unearthly great old monolithic structures from a far forgotten past. The Ghostlands were originally inhabited and founded by ancient Atlanteans as seen from the ancient ruins and statues forgotten by the forest of time. One of these mysterious statues is a great carving of the Watchful Protector and it is the reason the nation worships and build shrines to honor Basthura Luna, the Nocturnal Mother.
