East Meridia is a tropical land, dominated in the north by the greatest mountains in all of Devonia. It is said that somewhere exists a range so tall that it scrapes the very sky and that from the summits there one can step out into the kingdom of clouds. Stretching south from the mountains lies a dark jungle that stretches almost the entire western shore of the Dyapsid Sea. South of this jungle, East Meridia is warm and temperate, covered with fertile savannas and grasslands except at its most western extent where a vast desert borders the Teeming Sea. The south is mainly rolling hills with temperate broadleaf forests.
East Meridia is populated mostly by darker-skinned humans, most of whom live in kingdoms south of the great jungle, though there are large populations on the southern shores of the Mesobalmic Sea due to the vast amounts of trade with Altamiran kingdoms. The very greatest Dwarven societies reside in the mountains of East Meridia, and Dragonborn are commonplace in the lands around the Dyapsid Sea. Several large Eladrin societies reside in the southwest, and rumors abound of a race of jungle elves that live in East Meridia, but the great jungle itself is so vast and impenetrable that none yet living has been able to verify the stories one way or another.
Like its western counterpart, East Meridia is a land of primal power, particularly in the west. But its eastern reaches, especially around the Dyapsid Sea, hold many fighting schools renowned though all the Realms, and many of the greatest fighters and rogues in all of history have passed through the fighting halls of East Meridia.
