The Stench Bog is a vast wetlands region east of the Sentinel Mountains which stretches for hundreds of kilometers. This thick bog is more of a slime marsh known for its itch vines and retch moss. It is home to a large variety of diverse plant and animal life.
The Stench Bog gets its name from numerous sulfur springs within the bog. These steaming, bubbling pits emit noxious fumes and spray scalding hot mud whenever a bubble bursts. There are hundreds of these sulfur springs scattered throughout the Stench Bog and the smell of sulfur hangs in the air.
Conflicts between the Coalition and Garrison are commonly fought here. A single path runs around the bay from Garrison, through the Stench Bog, and on to Asylum. Even so, traversing this bog is very difficult.
The Stench Bog is home to many dangerous creatures. The most famous of which would be the dragon Melikran. Melikran is a black scaled dragon of average size. He is docile and somewhat approachable, allowing the local saurians to worship him and make sacrifices of food and victims. They often bring him fat cows and such and this has undoubtedly contributed to Melikran's laziness. Several knights from Garrison have ridden forth to do battle with Melikran but they have all died, either by Melikran himself or his saurian worshipers.
