An Introduction to Mahid
Age has not been kind to Mahid, or its bloated and ruddy Sun. What once were oceans are now vast tracts of salt flat, or treacherous basins of dust and ash. Vast wasteland is peppered with the remains of once great cities, now shelter for nomads, savages, and predators. Surface water is rare, and precipitation the thing of legends and myth, unknown outside a few scarcely believed reports from polar expeditions.
Thanks to the gradual loss of the atmosphere, the days are scorching, the nights freezing, and once navigable mountains are often impassable due to a simple lack of oxygen.
