Exile (verb) - To banish or expel from ones native land. Exile is also a place - many miles of caves and tunnels, far below the world's surface.
The known (and humanly accessible) parts of Exile are estimated to cover an area of around 350,000 square miles. A further 75,000 miles are either covered by underground lakes, or otherwise inaccessible.
Magical scrying has revealed further galleries and caverns lying beyond the walls of the known lands. However, extensive excavation of these has not been begun, since there is at present no need for additional resources or living space, and there is a general labor shortage anyway.
There is no known physical connection between the surface world and Exile, though several passageways are said to have been sealed off. The actual location of the caves does not bear much importance, as the only way of travel to and from the surface is by teleportation.
See Kingdom of Avernum.
The cavern has a set of teeth
A tongue of river, fungus hair
A face to match the sun above
Shining on those who do not care
North of Giant Lands are the Northern Waters.
