Graveyard of Sin
A remote area located near the borders of the Badlands, this valley of canyons has been described as a place where people come and never return. The steep canyon walls are lined with many unexplored caverns, but the sediment of the area is loose; near constant rockslides are a fact of life here. Local legends claim that many Freehold soldiers lost their lives here trying to navigate and map the maze-like terrain. It is home to many curious, native species of fauna, including snakes, the apex predator of the area. Many cacti also grow here, surviving off what little water that can be found in the underground.Almost overnight the entire area has changed from a desert to a fertile landscape. Trade routes seem to have popped up nearly overnight because of the sudden appearance of a massive, singular road connecting Kushasogen, the Graveyard of Sin and Takinomori, increasing the speed at which people can move through the Graveyard of Sin. The sand and loose sediment has quickly been replaced by fertile, soft and loamy soil. This new ground seems nutrient-rich, temporarily infused with earth chakra to change its consistency and granting it a moist and luscious texture with the potential to support numerous crops and foodstuffs. From the pristine, central road that traverses the land North to South numerous smaller roads spiral out, connecting four adjacent areas that now resemble farmland, each with acres upon acres of freshly built fields of crops. These roads connect all of the outlying lands to the Graveyard of Sin and create a sort of roundabout where it seems like a massive city, or village, could be built. The confusing and maze-like caverns have nearly all been collapsed, leaving only three tunnels that all meet one another, secretly connecting Kushasogen, the Graveyard of Sin and Takinomori. It seems much more structurally sound than before with no inherent weak points, as if collapsed purposefully and carefully. Along with the small amount of natural underground water, irrigation tunnels have been constructed with enough fresh water in them to support growing crops and other foodstuffs for months.
In the middle of the land is a large, growing settlement that is controlled by both The Golden Sabbath and The White Lotus. The settlement has wooden houses, structures and bridges that extend in all directions. Originally, it was established as a trading post for both clans with villagers from both clans being able to move or visit here to trade amongst themselves.
