Bavland is located on the north-eastern tip of the mountain range in the center of the continent, putting it in the south-west of Jah Keved. The region is rich in ore deposits, making mining central to its economy. Though not all of Bavland is concentrated on it, it seems to be the main source of population and work. There are multiple mining communities there, centered around small villages, with huge populations of transient workers. Due to all the mines, or perhaps the geological makeup of the region, Bavland is extremely dusty.
- Ironsway - one of the largest towns in its region
- Bornwater - the biggest mining town in Bavland
- Staplind - a smaller town near Bornwater
- Kneespike - the town of residence of the lord of Bornwater
Politics and Culture
The people of Bavland are called Bavlanders by outsiders, though they refer to themselvs as Bav. Though still distinctly Vorin, the Bav are a separate culture from that of the Veden, to the point of having their own language with several different dialects. One word from the Ironsway dialect of the Bav language is kurp, a term for "child".
