This is where our heroes have their adventures. Below I’m putting all the set descriptions.
The continent is divided in four kingdoms, named - with a real sparkle of originality - on the four directions, thus metaforically dividing with a “X” the parts. In reality the division is more complex, as right in the middle there’s a fifth area, between the Frozen Mounts and the Silent Lowland, no one lives in - except for beasts and monsters and it is considered nobody’s territory.
Each kingdom has its own capital:
Dean, Sam and Bobby live in Heron, a small village in the Kingdom of the North.
Each kingdom bases its economy on specific products: the Kingdom of the North, being close to the Wertho Mounts Chain, full of metals and precious minerals, lives on extracting said minerals and making weaponry and other objects to cultivate fields and so on.
The Kingdom of the West is a neuralgic point for naval trade: in fact, the Southern Harbours are the most important landing points of the whole continent. The kingdom lives on fishing and trading.
The Kingdom of the South, being close to many woods and forests, among which there is the White Forest, baases its economy on whatever the wood can produce, from boats to paper.
The Kingdom of the East, having lots of fields and grasslands, lives on stock-breeding and whatever the earth can produce. The Bay of Lemne is a dreaded place no one really gets too close, because it is said that in these waters there are frightening creatures called Leviathans.
Four times per year each capital organizes a fair, so every merchant of the continent can have the chance to sell and buy products from every country - and thus economy goes on
Who and what inhabits the continent?
The continent is inhabited by humans and common animals - cats, dogs, horses and so on. There are also strange creatures, like dragons, ogres, demons and such, who tend to live hidden from everyone else; to get rid of these creatures there are the so-called hunters: Dean and Sam are hunters of those creatures.
Hunters are usually seen as “outcast” and “outlaw” characters and they often have to deal with the kingdoms’ guards. Thus they need to hide and to have a backup.
On the next post I will describe the organization of each kingdom.
