The Shadowland, also known as the Land of Shadows, is a barren land of
eternal night, deep underground, 16 bloits south of Flatheadia and 75
bloits north of Fublio Valley (along the GUH-95). It lies near the
point where the Flathead Ocean's eastern shore dips underground, and
has frequent patches of quicksand as a result. The subterranean,
featureless landscape is composed of shallow rolling hills. The ceiling
is shrouded in mist, barely allowing the top of the enormous cavern
that spanned the entire dark land to be seen. A massive stone wall,
ancient and weathered, serves as its northern border. Crumbling with
age, several passages have been permitted through the rubble of the
decaying wall. The ominous land is contained at its southern ends by an
uncrossable sea of quicksand. This ominously magical and fantastic
place is bathed with shadows so eerie that even many members of the
Supernatural and Fantastic Wayfarers Association fear to
tread its grounds.
misty waters of the shoreline here are not only treacherous, and have
enchanted with a terrible curse. Anyone sailing near the shore was
caught in an enchantment which would trap the boat and its crew in the
seemingly endless waters until someone on shore greeted them with the
words "Hello Sailor!"
It was here in 948 GUE that the First Dungeon Master ordained a trial
for the man that would soon after become the Second. It is also from
this place where Glorian of the Knowledge magically gathered the
darkness that he later used to defeat the Autoexec.
