Dark Sun: Freedom's Price
The vast expanse of scrub plains, desert, and rocky badlands forms the western cradle of civilization in the Tyr Region. Here, Tyr and Urik claim influence over the wastes, and most of the settled peoples of Athas that dwell outside the city-states live in this area. The fortified town of Altaruk is one of the more important settlements here, an important way stop on the trade route between Balic and Tyr. Oases such as Grak’s Pond and Silver Spring, along with a few well-used trade routes, make this wilderness of the Tyr Region more hospitable than other areas.
