The Skytrap Basin lies to the north of the human land of Ulsinor within a vast forested region known as the Ayrreach. It is a ring of mountainous structures which encloses a massive forest. The walls of the Skytrap Basin are so tall that cloud formations move independently within it.
This area is home to the northern variety of Ayrgari, a strict, caste-based, martially controlled society. Northern Ayrgari are differentiated from their southern kin by the practise of “Grounding” whereby a juvenile Ayrgari has their wings surgically removed in a coming of age ceremony in their twentieth year.
The legendary figure Kaldair was reputedly born in the Skytrap.
