To the West, far beyond the treeline of the Eastern forests, are the Endless Plains.
These rolling plains can truly feel like they have no boundaries, but they are not really endless. They do span for a great many miles, though.
With little shelter from the elements, this can be a hard terrain to grow accustomed to living in. Nonetheless, there are still plenty of inhabitants in this sea of green.
Most of the creatures here form Tribes, so there is no true ruler of the Plains. However, all of the Tribes congregate once every four summers to elect a Chieftain, meaning one leader of the tribes is elected slightly higher in rank than the rest. It is the Chieftain, who can be male or female, that is considered 'ruler'.
The Chieftain and their followers tend to reside near the Arlen River, the largest in the plains. With fresh, clear water readily available year-round, it is an ideal place to live... or as ideal as you can get in the open.
