The Dark Hills
A desolate area in the south of Navarene that has little life and few people. The lightly rolling hills are covered with black oily drit that prevents most plants from growing here. Beyond the foot hills jut small mountains of dark obsidian and glass colored black and purple, making travel through the Dark Hills impractical. Some rivers do run from these mountains, but the oily drit makes even the riversides mostly barren. Most people go around this wasteland making it an effective natural boarder.
The people that live here are mostly know to be exiles and the undesirable castoffs of society. The Dark Hills are home to many ruins and remnants of the ancients. Scraps of ancient technology and structures can be found buried in the drit and rutting up from the ground dotted across the landscape. Many of the residents here are scavengers of the numenera and some people even come here by choice to scavenge and glean the treasures of past aeons.
