The Wastes

The Wastes are the source of the clouds of grey ash that blow over the Poison Forest and the area around the city of Jerris.  Another fertile area that was destroyed by the Scourge, it is currently home to Horrors, their twisted creations, and stunted plant and animal life.  A large number of kaers and citadels are hidden in the region, attracting explorers from across Barsaive.

Many scholar and magicians have studied the ash, and while it clearly has some kind of corrupting influence, they do not know the source, or found any way to fight its taint.
