Beltane

Beltane is the most dangerous continent on Alyria. Its forests and dark planes are unwatched, so anyone may attack another. It is home to dark dungeons and the notorious Keep of Lord Maldra. There are tales of underground lakes, caverns of fire, and snowy paths that mystify those who have yet to witness the wondrous scenes in the winding tunnels of Deceit. The smart adventurer is very cautious when journeying through this area, as it can be dangerous for the inexperienced.

Subregions

Dungeon Deceit

Nestled deep in the mountains and jungles southwest of Maldra's Keep lies Dungeon Deceit. Tales and songs flow from the lips of adventurers that survive the perils. They are tales of underground lakes, caverns of fire, and snowy paths that only mystify those that cannot imagine such wondrous scenes in the winding tunnels of Deceit. Many creatures mythical and magical haunt these shadowy corridors, beckoning only the most seasoned of veteran adventurers to plunder and unfold the secrets of the house of the Master of Evil.

Maldra's Keep

Maldra's Keep, located near the center of Beltane, is home to the evil Lord Maldra and those who serve him. The Keep is a most unusual place with areas that seem to defy the realities of this realm. Dark magics and science have intertwined to make the Keep a place that only experienced and brave adventurers visit. Much like the dark dungeons located to the west of Maldra's keep, the keep itself is home to many evil residents, and even darker secrets.

Pirate's Cove

The seaport city of Pirate's Cove lies on the northern coast of Beltane and, as the name suggests, is home to many swashbuckling rogues and thugs. It has always been a popular place for ships to put in for shore leave, as there are many establishments where the sailors can rest and recover from their time at sea with willing women. The smart adventurer is very cautious when journeying through this area, as it can be dangerous for the inexperienced. Pirate's Cove is surrounded by unexplored jungle and active volcanic rifts.

Treasure Bay
Adjacent to Pirate's Cove is the fabled Treasure Bay. Pirate ships dock here so that their crews can enjoy a bit of fun in Pirate's Cove while the ships are being restocked or repaired before heading out to seek further conquests. Deep in the waters of Treasure Bay a wide array of dangerous creatures live including one legendary creature that is said to threaten the town itself when stirred from its lair.
Baron Rothchild's Castle
Baron Rothchild lives in a well-built castle in the hills on the southern side of Pirate's Cove. From its perch above the town, the castle offers views of all that occurs in the town allowing Baron Rothchild to keep up with events even when he chooses not to go among the riff raff in the streets of his town.
