The Tempah Plains extend from the Red Mountains to Forest Dawnbreak. Most of the region is extremely dry, especially during the summer; flash fires are a real hazard during lightning storms. The only areas that receive enough water to support crop farming are along the Red Mountain River and close to Forest Dawnbreak. For the most part only nomads and criminals make their home in the plains. The lack of a regulating government makes the Tempah Plains a lawless place where one better travel in well-armed groups or take efforts to pass unseen.
During the summer many hunters and trappers travel to Greenwich Castle to hunt the bison that migrate in huge herds towards the wetter areas of the plains. Their meat is highly valued by dwarves and humans, while the furs fetch a good price in elven markets.
