The Plains of Minon
These broken and tumbled plains surround the ruins of the fabled kingdom of Minon, which was laid waste millennia ago when the gods rose up against their parents. According to most recountings, during the Godswar Mal Zath himself appeared to the fanatic bull-priesthood of Minon, asking if they were prepared to follow him to death and beyond. When his faithful responded with an overwhelming “yes,” the Blood Bull changed their very flesh, reshaping them into the race of minotaurs.
Now the Plains of Minon are haunted by warbands of flesh-eating bull-men, as well as the capricaur offshoot of the minotaur bloodline. A scattering of gnoll tribes claim portions of the plains, and are seen as more reasonable trade partners than the minotaurs — not that this is saying too much. The other dominant predators of the land are manticores and gorgons, the latter of which are also considered sacred to the god of slaughter. It takes a daring banner of swordsmen indeed to try proving themselves in the Plains of Minon, and yet they do that very thing — nations such as Paelis pay a good bounty for minotaur heads, worried as they are of what could happen if the minotaurs were allowed to grow more numerous.
