Located in mid-western Lesnon east of the Domain of Sharoothil, south of The Bloodlands, and north of the Black Swamp, the Bonelands are the ruins of the ancient kingdom of Cotiso and serve as the current hunting ground of the nomadic gnolls. There are fifteen major tribes, each as vicious and bloodthirsty as the last. There are no real markers for intruders to tell when they have crossed tribal borders, and those borders change on a daily basis. They take slaves, but usually eat them before too long.
Gnolls are a transitory, nomadic species and sleep in crude tents, not deigning to use the occasional ruin they come across. The most glaring exception to this is the Market of Giknar, an ancient arena that has been converted into a ‘neutral’ meeting place and feasting hall for the use of all tribes. It also serves as a slave market.
