The central continent of Narra, Pelim is attached to Kara-Tur by a land bridge, and separated from Rorros by the vast Sea of Tears. Rather impressively, Pelim is almost completely controlled by the Hastara Empire, and has been for nearly three hundred years. Limited trade exists between Pelim and Rorros, and a great deal of trade takes place between Pelim and Kara-Tur. A large portion of Pelim is covered by the inhospitable Red Desert, a dangerous area filled with fields of poisonous magic that slowly kills whoever lingers too long, as well as dead magic zones where magic fails completely. Ruins of an ancient and advanced civilization, about which almost nothing is known, lie just beneath the sands.
