"Stay clear of the Ashlands, unless you wish to die a horrible death."
Dyron Blackgard
The Ashlands are a semi-autonomous region in the Borderlands. The Ashlands are the dry and inhospitable areas surrounding Red Mountain to the north and west. Various bordermen tribes inhabit the region. The Ashlands are inhospitable to most life, but some creatures have managed to adapt to the harsh terrain and climate. Some plants also manage to flourish to this desolate area. Nomads known as raiders also call this region their home. Hazardous ashstorms are frequent due to Red Mountain's volcanic activity. Crippling Decay is common in this region.
