The Black ShroudEdit
The Black Shroud is a large forest in central Aldenard. Within these dense woodlands lies the city-state of Gridania; well known in Eorzea for its forestry, agriculture, carpentry and leather working trades.
In the southern reaches of Aldenard is a large desert called the Thanalan.
The city-state of Ul'dah is located in these deserts. It is a popular location for visitors to partake in its fighting arenas and gambling halls. The Ul'dahn culture is known for its affluence. Despite historically being claimed sovereign by the sultan, it is under the rule of the Syndicate, an elite group comprising of the six wealthiest and most influential members of society.
Located near the west-center of Aldenard is Mor Dhona. This area is notable for a large derelict airship dominating the landscape. Since the Calamity, many large crystalline deposits can be found dotting the area, including an immense Crystal Tower.
This mountainous region contains the city-state of Ishgard. Originally featuring a temperate climate, the Calamity resulted in a transition to severe wintry conditions.
