West of the Dragons Claw Mountains, is a vast area of open wild lands. Here there can be found endless tracts of deep forests interrupted by rolling grasslands. The Western Wilderness, as this region is simply known, is home to creatures and races too numerous to count, but due to the sheer area of the region there is plenty of room for them. Folk from the Valley of Baryn seldome enter these regions as there are no vestiges of conventional civilization to be found there.
What can be found are scattered territories controlled by individual tribes, clans, bands and solitary monsters. Of the various races that make their homes in the Western Wilderness the most notable are the durians, ursoi, and the wolfen. Durians are savage boar men who live in nomadic bands that bully and raid their way through the territory. Ursoi are powerfully built, proud bearmen with a surley disposition. The wolfen are noble wolfmen who fancy themselves the true sovereigns of the region despite their lack of conventional townships or structures. Other races that can be found commonly in the region are ogres, gnolls, goblins, bugbears, orcs and a race of bird men known as hawrooks.
