The Blood Plains are classed as "Evil" by the Dwarven Institute of Biology and Cartography. It gains its name from the seemingly endless blood rains, which is evidently composed of blood of Mountain Barbarians; the region has a constant stink of burnt flesh as a result.
As one gets further north in the blood plains, the blood rains may be replaced by blood snows instead.
The blood plains contains all the fauna to be expected in the areas it covers, with no known reanimating effects. Known animals seen include:
- Various owls and other birds of prey
- Pond Turtles
The West Everoc Coastal Reaches have no concept of "good" or "evil" plants, and as such plants not normally widespread or extremely prolific in other regions of the continent are endemic to all but the most inhospitable places, the blood plains being no exception to this rule. It hosts all known surface flora in the region, excluding those found only savage regions (highwood trees and whip vines).
The innermost portion of the blood plains are largely devoid of plant life, save for sporadic, tangled bushes, briars and blood oaks. Blood moss tends to flourish in this area. Ground cover is at a minimum.
The only sentient life that inhabits the blood plains, either permanently or temporarily, are roving bands of Scythods that are attempting to patrol the borders of their homes in The Amber Barb. At one point, Warmaster Scylk's squad was among these, but he has since returned home. A small percentage of these creatures wish to make the Blood Plains their permanent home, as they find the blood rain refreshing.
