Geography:

Temperate continent:images10
Continent is surrounded by lowland coast, highland central plateau gives birth to major rivers carving their way through low land grass plains. River Ceres is greatest of continents rivers, through great canyon it bursts fervently by  several grand falls. High land forests, plain low land forests and floodplains dominate the landscape of the continent. High density of wild game emigrates between low and highland based on season and available nutrition.  The temperate continent a wide variety of weather through the year, with very cold and harsh winters and very hot and humid summers. Wind speeds are often very high, especially in winter. The Great Plains have dust storms mostly every summer or so.
Imperial habitat: “Bastion of Drusus”
Imperial habitat: “Precinct-Fortress of Grand Falls”
Huwan center: “Valley of Dense Smoke”

Arctic continent:images11
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. One of it’s coasts 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 continent having a tundra climate.

Desert continent:images9
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 any precipitation that falls within the continent does not eventually flow to the ocean.

“Imperial friendship” bridge of Ceres riversilta
-Sculptures and reliefs display alliance of Imperial law and nobility for the greater good of mankind.
-Strong enough to hold weight of a Titan.
-Located in strategic location making it center between lands along Ceres river and highland wilderness.
-Nexus point on power distribution from ancient underground plasma core to “Bastion of Drusus” and “Precinct-Fortress of Grand Falls
-Navigation beacon, combines vox, spotlights and laser grid to assist flight skill checks (re-roll failed check) to spaceport of Bastion of Drusus.
-Sky Canoe, religious symbol of the Huwan tribes, is located beside the bridge. Responsibility of care-taking the relic is assigned to Brother-Militant Makbae.
