The Departed - Saffron Canyons

Thumbnails of an area of the world so distant from the Grasslands they don't even have a name for each other, at least not one widely known.

The Saffron Canyons is a dustbowl, hot and oil-filled. It's littered with villages of iron and smoke and it's here that the second main character starts, being raised in the Ironfort for his whole life. This area has a lot of verticality, the player able to traverse between the canyon floors, walkways above and the upper plateau as well as in the various town which are more technologically advanced than that of the Grasslands.
