Great walls surround Amestris, that has existed at least 300 years, historians like to remind people. And it is said that the walls were errected to protect civilised people from the dangerous lands outside. The north leads to Drachma, a frozen wasteland. The south to Aurego, of which not much is known. To the west is Creta, said to be the home of vicious man-eating beasts of humans, cannibals. The east lies only desert, however it is also said to house Xing, a land known for mystery.
