The northeastern most peninsula of the main continent consists of this untamed wilderness. It is a low-mana zone, poor in natural resources, rich in hostile wildlife. The Dwarves of the Dwarven Safeholds have no use for it, the Fae of the Fae Court find it exhausting to even enter, and repeated attempts to colonize the area by Minotaur refugees of those two realms have been lost without a trace. Even the Empire of Night has given up on trying to outflank the Dwarven Safeholds seaward defenses through the Savage Lands.
Some Fae believe that there are normal mana zones within the Savage Lands, past the border that no Fae can cross, and that a Dragon, fiercely jealous of her privacy, lives in the Savage Lands.
