The desert continent is defined by numerous mountain ranges creating its extreme conditions. These ranges often create valleys, endorheic basins, salt pans, and seasonal saline lakes when precipitation is high enough. These mountain ranges and valleys are caused by tectonic formation; a geologic area of crustal thinning which pulls open valleys over millions of years. Most of the valleys are internally drained (endorheic basins), so all precipitation that falls within the continent does not eventually flow to the ocean.

Arctic continent: images11
Native population: 300.000
Archaotech fallout shelter, upper level occupied by HLF leaders
Territory of salmon tribe, Enapai, Leader of Salmon tribe

Arctic continent is volcanic and geologically active. The interior consists of a plateau characterized by sand and lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, and many mighty glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. It is warmed by the ocean stream and has a temperate climate, despite a high latitude just outside the arctic circle. Its high latitude and marine influence keep summers chilly, with most of the archipelago having a tundra climate.
