Kingu Point Picture

I am way too proud of this one to let you lot have the full size.

Kingu point, the Northwest most point of the Aeran Empirical border. Stretching out into the sea via mountain range, this entry can be particularly hazardous if you stay close to the mountains. Remember: just because you can't see them, doesn't mean they aren't there.

Why "Kingu"? Kingu was a Mesoptamian demon who, after being slain by Marduk, went to live in the underworld. His blood, however, after being mixed with earth by Marduk, used the clay to form the first human beings.

Born from demon's blood and earth? That's a hell of gig.
