The Wild Lands
The Greenbelt is the region directly bordering Algol to the west. It is so named because of the fertile soil which supports vibrant green prairie grass, and the dense northern forest. Historically, the Greenbelt has resisted colonization primarily due to bandits that thrive on fair weather and easy travel afforded by the region, though rumors speak of warring clans of kobolds and mites that might also have something to do with it. Though the border has historically been safe, even during times of war, recently the bandits have stepped up their incursions into Algolian territory and have shown an unprecedented level of organization. Efforts to apprehend the villains have been stymied by the fact that Algol possesses no useful maps of the region, and all efforts to determine who, or what, is leading the bandits has met with failure.
