War of the Burning Sands
The Lands Within the Wind
Travelers in the wastes tell of the Lands Within the Wind, an otherworid of magic and enchantment that exists alongside the material world. Known in some ancient texts as “the Feywild” or “the Kingdoms Invisible,” this otherworid seems to be an echo or reflection of Athas. It is absent from most places around the planet, but pockets of this realm lie in remote deserts and mountains, especially the Forest Ridge. These pockets are small; scholars believe that the total amount of the plane remaining in existence, combining all fragments scattered across Athas, would fit inside the walls of Tyr. The Lands Within the Wind are home to the Eladrin, an elflike race of mysterious powers. A traveler could walk right past an Eladrin palace and never see it because it lies in the other plane instead of on Athas. The plane is rapidly deteriorating due to the use of defiling magic on Athas, with large landmasses breaking apart and crumbling into the abyss.
