The Lower Plains are divided by a large river. The land to the south of the river is mostly worked farmland, supplying most of Althura with its grains and fresh produce. The land to the north of the river is home to the Barbarian tribes part of the year. Their nomadic herd animals enjoy the cool air coming off the Sea of Life and nearby Sea of Mists and the fertile plains’ rich grass. Between the protective farmers, the intimidating barbarian tribes and the King’s men on the roads; The Lower Plains are quite a safe, quiet place. Occasionally they see trouble from the Barbarian tribes who have not joined the Iman Kingdom and from Desert raiders.
