Logard Plains Edit
The Logard Plain is a large grassland plain nestled within the Ragnaro Mountain Range. Logard has been the site of hundreds of battles, and the remains of tents, carts, and corpses can be found all throughout the plain overtaken by nature.
The largest of these “ruins” is the wrecked “Sessrum”, a once-magnificent airship that now only serves as shade for the creatures of the plain.
Roaming herds of bison-like creatures called “Visund” by the tribes of the Ragnaro mountain thrive in this area. While they do not defend territory like some other animals do, they will not hesitate to defend their young from any threat that gets too close.
The reason that the Visund thrive without being hunted by man is the same reason that the Logard Plains are peppered with the scars of battle of ages past; the great eagle, Raesvelger, more commonly known as Velger, which gives the area its name and keeps out those that would encroach upon the plains.
Encampment Ruins Edit
A collection of tents, carts, and remains that was once the encampment for a large force. Nothing of value remains, but it can provide decent cover from the elements.
Esther's Tree Edit
The largest tree in the Logard Plains, of which there are not very many in the first place. The name Esther is carved deep into the tree's trunk, but this person remains a mystery.
Wreck of the Sessrum Edit
The bisected remains of an airship that crashed into the plains. Massive claw and pierce marks indicate that it was destroyed by Raesvelger.
Trashed Caravan Edit
A long string of large carts that at some point were torn apart by Raesvelger. Those nearby say that those seeking to save time by traveling through Velger's Hunting Ground are foolish and doomed.
A collection of large boulders that form narrow passages between them and provide cover from the wind and sun. It's unknown if these boulders were moved there or were there originally, as there are no other boulders of the like within the plains.
Raesvelger the Colossus Edit
Raesvelger, also known as Velger, is a massive bird creature that claims the Logard Plains as its personal hunting ground. With 5 working eyes, 6 Wings, and 8 near-indestructible talons, Velger stalks the Logard Plains with only a giant shadow on the ground announcing its presence. Large enough to grasp even the largest of the Visund with one foot, strong enough to lift said Visund thousands of feet into the air, and fast enough to easily capture even the most desperate of prey, Velger is rightly feared as a massive threat to be avoided and respected by all.
Survivor reports claim that Velger is agile enough to avoid barrages of arrows, and if necessary is able to create powerful gusts of wind with its multiple wings. With its 5 eyes Velger can track down prey and notice threats at a moment's notice, and while it doesn't often hunt during the night it seems to not have much trouble seeing through darkness. It originally had 6 eyes of course, but an observant viewer can see a scar dashed across the furthest-back eye on its right side. Stories on who gave Velger this war wound are exaggerated and numerous.
It is not known how old Velger is, or if it is the only one of its kind in the world. It isn't even known where it lives, though some speculate that it resides high upon the Ragnaro Mountains and simply spends most of its time within the Logard Plains to hunt prey.
