The Longest JourneyEdit
Continent south of the Great Sea, and home to the remnants of the Bakshevan Empire. Its two main cities are the coastal Monterba and Altaban, separated by the wasteland of Ch'Angagriel. This desert features several terukh (oases), and rumours of the lost ruins of Gorimon draw many an unwary traveller. Its southernmost point is the Southern Capes.
Brian tells Benrime that in the decade since TLJ he had visited, among other places, her native Southlands. He recounts to her the story of a local companion of his who was tricked into drinking fermented pig's blood. "He couldn't stand up straight for three days!" Benrime simply replies with a derisive "Southlanders".
Brian did not stop at the Southern Capes, however, but pressed on beyond them across the South Sea to lands "that are frozen through both winter and summer. The sun is as cold as the moon down there."
