Broken into West and East Ghiscari, Ghiscari is the Common name for the the continent in which Lere resides. It comes from the original Draconic name for the original empire of Ghiscar which ruled most of the continent.
Ghiscar was an imperialistic, bellicose dragonborn empire which ruled for centures several thousands of years ago. Ghiscar bred and enslaved hundreds of thousands of Kobolds, creating the problem that still persists today of their ubiquitous petulance. Ghiscar was ruled over by Ancalagon, an ancient black dragon. Ancalagon would range for months at a time, feeding, pillaging, or scouting out new places for a Ghiscari campaign. It was from one such range that Ancalagon simply never returned. Lacking Ancalagon’s fearful power, as well as his leadership, Ghiscari quickly crumbled under its own weight, and opportunistic, invading forces.
Lere rests at the north edge of the continent, positioned atop the imaginary line that divides east and west ghiscari.
