Varden is a region of Eidyn. It is bordered by Central Eidyn, Oceanfell and Gierkliff. A region with strange foliage and even stranger ground formations, Varden has often been described as a twisted, alien land of untold mystery.


The region mostly consists of thick jungle and strange stone formations that occasionally break the treeline. The jungle is filled with small ruins made by some unknown civilization, though it is thought they were left behind by the Moroitos. The only other remarkable feature of the region is the large lake that the Union of Climche and Folium are located. This lake and all the land near it are infested with huge, carnivorous plants. What is worse is that these plants are spreading, and soon they will probably cover the whole region.

The northern border of Varden is the Tepezi Desert formed by a rainshadow of several nearby mountains. It is the driest area of Varden. It is here where a tribe of Atl known as the Ko'atl live.
