Kadavasptha is part of a chain of islands off the southeastern coast of Sarvoda. Like the other islands near Sarvoda, several feet of soil and (up to 6 feet in the northwestern part of the island) have been ripped up off the land and blasted into the sea. Only a few ruins dot the island, and no sentient creatures live on the surface.
The island is approximately 100 kilometers across at its widest point, and its highest point rises about 70 meters above sea level. There are no rivers or lakes on the island, though rain water often collects in rocky pools that pockmark the southeastern half of Kadavasptha.
Small rodents, reptiles, amphibians and insects have found their way to Sarvoda and are fairly common. Because resources are scarce, animal life swings through wild flourish and famine periods.
The island's nutrient-starved, thin soil does a poor job of supporting life, and so only the hardiest plants survive here. Tough grasses, thistles and other tenacious prairie plants grow here, along with scrub bushes, dwarf firs and larch trees.
Ruins & Structures Edit
Very little remains of the cities and farmsteads that were said to have once covered Kadavasptha. A few ruins dot the surface - Occasional walls, some foundations here and there, and on the southeast tip of the island, the low-shorn remains of a keep and what might have been a lighthouse.
A completely intact, buried structure has recently been uncovered. The strange structure, shaped like a right triangle and 80 meters across on its longest side, is buried about 10 km inland from the western shore of the island. The structure seems to be connected to a form of geomancy and is oriented around the nexus point of two strong ley lines. A vault-like chamber of the structure is also situated on the nexus point of a very weak ley line and one of the two strong ley lines that cross through the center of the building.
