Geography

Arith is characterized by a relatively undiversified continental geography, compared to other areas in Alathra. South-east Arith contains a large old-growth forest located between Redwood and Ellesmere, bordering the sea. Surrounding this is an area of largely expansive flatlands, containing very little highland. As you move northward you make your way into an area rightly named the Birch Shaws near the ruins of Xenoarcadia. Further lies Mount Xeno, the largest peak in Arith, and the source of all its fresh water. North-west Arith contains a very large boreal forest, a great "belt" of flora stretching west to east, taking up more than half of the continent. This forested area is very diverse however, containing oak, birch, dark oak, spruce, swamps and savanna. The appearance of Arith's mesa biomes remain a mystery, one in the far north and one in the east.
