, Bright Sentry, guards the growing town of Brightport and serves as the island domain's local capital. The current government proclaims that the recapture of all lost lands is its primary goal. The rest of the Shield Lands are under Iuz occupation. Thousands of humans live in the occupied lands, eking out a horrible existence of slavery and degradation. Towns such as Axeport and Stahzer were completely leveled and depopulated. Most roads in the occupied lands are in a bad condition, the few that are in decent condition are used by the forces of Iuz to ship goods to northern lands. The local climate is dry temperate steppes, and less harsh that the Bandit Kingdoms to the north. Though far from tropical, the southern coast of the Shield Lands provide the most hospitable beaches in all the Nyr Dyv coastline. Iuz controls a chaotic array of nonhumans here, numbering in the tens of thousands. The Shield Lands forces, stationed in Critwall, consist of some 10,000 infantry and cavalry. Most of of these men and women are elite, battle-hardened veterans with decent to good equipment and a steely determination to retake all the land that are under occupation.
