The Windswept Wastes is the name given to the central deserts and western steppes of Casmaron. It is nominally part of the Empire of Kelesh but the inhabitants keep their own tribal customs and traditions.
The region's inhabitants are mainly Keleshites. Some tribes are horse nomads, whilst others are settled.
The inhabitants honour Sarenrae and the other gods of the Empire of Kelish, but they also have their own legend which dates from the days of Ninshabur. It tells of a human hero called Namzaruum who will return one day to lead his descendants to victory against their enemies.
