Skeleton Player Characters

Located between Cannibal Plains and Okran's Gulf. As the name implies, the Floodlands is a flooded swamp with a never ending downpour making this a gloomy area to travel. The region is also known for the ancient structures that remain suggesting the area was industrialized and might explain why the environment is now dead. The only thing roaming these lands are Iron Spiders and Security Spiders.

Floodlands bears the scars visible from the vast amount of dead area due to exploitation, it has traditionally been chartered to one megacorporation to another to feed the industrial maw of the Old Empire, which always hungers yet is never satisfied. The water that rains here also gets transported to Okran's Pride via Wend and then to Border Zone and ultimately leaving the water to The Swamps. But seems to have majority of the flow blockaded by a junk reef.
