The continent of Cheidrah

Cheidrah is the smallest continent of the planet Kalieda, after Falah and Ewlah. By far the most prominent feature of the continent is the polar ice cap - approximately 9 million Km² in total area - covering a significant proportion of the landmass as well as all the ocean above latitude 77°N .

Within a century of the first appearance of permanent ice in the north lands of the continent, the new ice cap had turned a temperate and productive continent into a barren land that could only support human habitation in the south. Alongside the formation of the ice cap, there was also a significant drop in the mean sea level across the planet. It was the onset of these related events which triggered the migration of the populations that were to become the Bartak, Ambostak and Pentuuk Societies to the newly inviting continent of Ewlah.
