Edge of Civilisation - The West Reaches
The Midlands is the southern region of Drestelia, formerly inhabited by the tabaxi. They were overrun by the humans and retreated further south and settled in Privora. With them they brought some remnants of civilisation, trade and settlement to the golaiths, helping to found Arex.
A large portion of the Midlands succumbed to the disaster known as The Changing, a large, magical explosion of demonic origin that caused the part of the region (and the population in it) to be changed and become The Kezlek Wastes.
