Forward Into Danger
On the Western border of the Scilti lies a tremendously huge, unexplored tract of land dubbed simply “The Vast”. The elves maintain the edge of the Scilti/Vast as a natural border, since the old, dense forests very quickly give way to huge swaths of rocky scrubland and in some cases, deserts and badlands. Many small mountain ranges dot the Vast, and the gods only know what is truly out there.
The elves maintain many small border outposts, with a few larger fortifications serving as mustering points for the Sidhe Guard and the Knights. While it is uncertain what threats lie in the Vast, they are undeniably there. Patrols often encounter all manner of traps, sometimes with lethal consequences. Many patrols suffer missile fire, and more than one elf has met death during the night. Occasionally, patrols don’t return at all. Many veterans are hesitant to discuss what they’ve seen in the Vast, for it is an undeniably grim, foreboding place.
