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 northern Ayrgari have long standing ties to the human nation of Ulsinor that stem from the alliances made after The Clay Wars.

The legendary figure Kaldair was reputedly born in the Skytrap.
