”Wind caresses the stark dunes with a whispering touch, catching fine, white grains of sand between its fingers and bearing them forth like thousands of tiny charioteers.—Kenton
The Kerla is an area of desert at the center of the Dayside of Taldain. It lies to the north of Lossand, to the east of Kerzta, and is separated from Tallon, Nor'Tallon, Seevis, and Denka by a mountain range. It contains the Mastrell's Path and the mountain KraeDa. The Kerla is not considered a desert by Daysiders since dorim vines are found there.
The Diem of the Sand Masters meets in the Kerla for training and other ceremonies. During an advancement ceremony on the Kerla, they were betrayed and many members of the Diem were massacred by Kerztians.
