The Red Hand
The veldt is an immense sea of tall grass with the occasional copse of sparse trees. It is inhabited by various tribes of nomadic hunter-gatherers. Like the rest of Lyria, the communities of the Veldt are generally not racially homogeneous, but the tall grass seems to have favoured smaller races. So, the Veldt is dominated by halflings, gnomes, goblins, kobolds and their ilk.
Without a central form of government or major city-states to exert their influence, the tribes of the Veldt each act in an autonomous manner. Twice a year, on the solstices, the majority of the tribal leaders meet under a truce to negotiate the arrangements that maintain the savannah’s peace.
The Veldt is also a pretty cool song by Deadmau5.
