The Glimmer Fate was a far northern region of Kurald Galain that bordered the Vitr sea. It was a hot rainless land of rolling plains covered by thick shoulder high black grass. The grass collected heat turning the plain into a furnace, and the grass's sharp serrated edges meant that it could not be passed through with bare skin. Native animals like the tusked heghest possessed a skin of protective reptilian scale.
At night, travelers had to be wary of the naked wolves that roamed the plains in packs.
