Age of Ascension
The Wildlands is the vast expanse of territory outside the Gelamen Nation. Occasioanlly scouting parties would leave from Schano into the Wildlands, but such excursions are usually highly dangerous. There are only two types of groups who go into the Wildlands, seasoned adventurers who are being paid exuberantly for such a mission, or adventurers starting out who want to use such a trip as a way of proving their worth. Either way most of these trips do not go very far into the Wildlands before the countless dangers of orc tribes , gnoll packs, barbarian tribes, or the wildlife within wipes out the adventurers or forces them to return.
There have been attempts by the cartographers’ guild to send ships to the eastern coast of the Wildlands to try and set up a fort or colony but these rarely last very long at all. The only one that is still around and has maintained a proper defence against the dangers is Fort Skag.
Occasionally a native of the Wildlands will find their way to the Border of Man and seek refuge within the Gelamen Nation. Usually these refugees would be questioned by a Paladin of Truth and if they prove that they’re willing to truly join the Gelamen Nation and contribute to it as a society they would be allowed within.
