This high, windswept plain lies at the southern tip of The Fang. Bordered on the north by the Starshine Forest, on the east and west by the Cragtooth Mountains, and on the south by the high cliffs overlooking the Dark Sea, it is relatively featureless save for the large lake that lies in the center. Three small fishing towns dot the landscape around the lake. The ground is made of a rocky, highly acidic soil that makes agriculture difficult. Hence, the settlements of The Salient subsist almost entirely on the fish from Lake Poldroon, in addition to small amounts of animal husbandry.
