Shalekesh is a badland region in the western part of the continent of Darsha. It is largely comprised of hilly rock formations with sparse vegetation. Summers in Shalekesh are brutally hot and winters are very cold, with an abundance of snowfall. It is subject to sudden and dramatic changes in weather year around, with high winds and vicious thunderstorms being common. Due to its unfavorable weather, Shalekesh has a low population.
These subzones may be claimed by packs!
The Luminous Shore
The southwestern edge of Shalekesh is especially barren - only the heartiest trees and scrub brushes grow here. The ocean, however, teems with life. Certain times of year yield bioluminescent plankton and jellyfish migrations, hence the name!
This area is crisscrossed with shallow, slow moving rivers. Despite the name, there are several months of the year during the dry season that this area runs dry. When the water is gone, the soil and mud left behind tends to be a shocking red from the iron-rich soil.
The Painted Hills
The Painted Hills is an area dominated by rock spires and pinnacles that showcase their many colorful layers of sediment.
The God's Bed
The God's Bed is the site of a large river nestled in the rock formations that has since dried up, leaving a grassy basin in its wake.
This is the tallest rock spire in Shalekesh, which is climbable due an ancient staircase carved around it. Some brave the extreme height to reach the top of the spire and gaze at the stars.
Domain Guardian: baluroth
Baluroth is a fallen space "ancient" bimoloph (© Sambhur). He never goes into detail, but his basic story is that he was cast out of his kind's group for being disrespectful and having extreme issues with authority. His wings were torn apart, and he was condemned to being stuck on Velukaelo for the rest of his life. Generally, he's pretty angry at himself and takes it out on anyone who comes by, but if you defeat him in battle, there is a chance that he will teach you about space and respect.
