This wild and untamed land is home to monstrous and fierce creatures, as well as wild and unpredictable regions of magical chaos.
Legend says the continent was once a two headed dragon, formed upon his death. Some versions claim that Darenthal clipped his wings off clear off with an axe and Typhon used this as a means of escaping total defeat.
Dragon's tail is rumored to have formed when an abnormally large Drako-Mythos smacked it's tail on the ground of Typhon.
There are several scattered ruins belonging to a long lost and mysterious civilization. The lands have long been reclaimed by many fierce creatures.
Recent Events Edit
The town of 16 was yet again destroyed by the massive Kaiju and was shortly thereafter rebuilt as 17.
The wilds of Typhon are known to harbor many mysterious beasts, but the most peculiar are the "Earth dragons," which are similar to dragons but not quite. They resemble dragons, but aren't as intelligent and have many variations most of them, oddly, unable to fly. Some scholars, especially Archeologists, who have visited Typhon reason that they used to live everywhere in Etape... until something happened to them. Another speculation that has been made is that they are barley related to dragons at all.
There have also been sightings of absolutely huge dragons that dwarf some mountains. They are known as Drako-mythos. They have about the same intelligence as any normal Earth-dragon, and can fly for massive distances. Though they sound monstrous, only some happen to be evil, and those are the rare fire-breathing ones who haven't been seen for thousands of years.

The Dragonbacks - There is a nomadic society of Goliaths and Bronze Dragonborns called the Dragonbacks and they are localized in Dragon's tail. One thing they are known for is taming dragons and wyverns, riding them into battle. They are also rumored to have tamed a Drako-mythos, which they have allegedly mounted buildings on to and lived on for generations, but, for some odd reason, they haven't ventured very far out of The Drag-on's Tail chain. Maybe they are held up there for reason. This could connect to their active aggression towards The Night Jade. They are also the major sword and shield of Bhadrag, fighting for better technology in exchange. This isn't apparent and many civilians of Bhadrag don't know that this is the case.

Plot Hooks: Edit
A meadow full of dead Earth Dragons and many other monstrous creatures have been found, with not a single trace of injury or even a clue... Except for the clean removal of each brain... and a tablet in a haunting language.
Their have been rumors that some cultists worshiping a mysterious old one have been frequenting ruins in the drownings... The greatest guild artisans of Bhadrag are being haunted and creating monstrosities all resembling the same thing... A strange hominid, who has a Octopus's head and dragon's wings.
The tribes of Typhon say that a great beast has emerged from the Lonely Sea and is making its way south through the Parched Marches. No two stories describe the monster the same way, but they all agree that some monster crawled out of the sea.
