To the East, Darlejing and furthest away New Bork City, the big Kumquat. Founded by Suedish chéfs. As a general rule, the further East you travel, the more civilized things get.

To the West, Armadillo and the gold fields.

To the South, Hablanero, a spicy foreign place.

To the North, the frozen wastes.

All around you, the cities of the fabled giants. A fickle bunch, as likely to strike you dead on sight as to throw you a morsel.
