Into the Ashlands
Far to the West of Equabar lie the Shattered Isles of Ahjlia. Once home to the most advanced society of the old era, the continent was torn asunder by Yozelgoth the Destroyer during the Dawn War. When Yozelgoth rose from the abyss vortex and attacked Ahjlia, the continent was blasted into hundreds of small islands, and the people were sent spiraling into a time of darkness and ignorance.
The Ahjlians are now only a rumor to the inhabitants of Equabar. Every now and then a seafarer claims that he has seen an Ahjlian ship, known by the purple color (impossible to create for Equabarians) of their sails. No one takes these stories seriously though, and they are written off as the sea stories of drunk sailors.
In fact, an again-thriving culture does exist on Ahjlia, and with their advanced ship technology they are beginning to range farther and farther from their home isles.
