Year of the Tiger
Swamp of Pontra
The Swamp of Pontra lies due west of Haarlem. Ruled by the great evil dragon Pontra and named in his honor, the Swamp is a dark, dismal, deadly place. Bordered on the North by the Shearneth Mountains, and the South by the Great Lake Desert, the Swamp continues for over a hundred miles before giving way to fertile ground once more. On the other side lies the small Entarik Region. Although they are still considered a nation, the Entarik have been engaged in various civil wars and petty rivalries for the last several hundred years. That and their inhospitable surroundings have prevented them from expanding further, although they have been known to send ‘exploratory’ forces to besiege Haarlem.
