On the map of Ethra, Aventuria is above the equator. Although expansive enough that its environments range from tropical forest to perpetually frozen tundra, it's one of the world's smaller continents. Occupying much of the northern half, the largest domain is the Holy New Empire of the Griffin Throne and Gareth. Not surprisingly, this name is seldom employed outside of official matters; people most often call it the Middenrealm. The head of state, Empress Rohaja, presides over a territory made up of various kingdoms, duchies, enclaves and colonies. Shrouded in mystery, the evil, perilous Black Lands lie to the east.
In The Dark Eye: Demonicon, you'll visit both of these locations and more within the popular pen and paper property.
