The Wind Plains collectively refers to the broad grasslands that separate the Fekwar Hills from the southern coast of Qeshir. The winds sweep in from the Henari Sea travelling north off the ocean and flow up northwest along the hills. The Wind Plains are aptly named as windy days are frequent. A typical day will see a constant breeze of 10-20 kilometers an hour. Storms in the late summer and fall are common and may gust to 70 mph an hour in some areas.
The Wind Plains are home to the gutha, a species of giant flightless bird, related to the taruba of the west, but of larger size and rather dull plummage. Herds of black tailed elk are hunted by sedmonas, a fast plains predator that resembles a mix of canine and feline.
