Located between the Khalkist Mountains and Balifor, Khur is comprised of great dunes of shifting sands that wend across the desert reaches. Unlike in the south, there are a great number of solid outcroppings of rock. Some of these locations are actually ancient ruins that were abandoned and disappeared beneath the sands hundreds of years ago. The number of these ruins below northern Khur is unknown, but is rumored to be in the hundreds. Occasionally, a fortress will slowly be uncovered and claimed by one of the local tribes. Most Khurish settlements can be found on or near one of these ruins.
