Skull and Shackles
Garund (pronounced gah-ROOND) is a Golarion continent located south of Avistan, across the Inner Sea, and west of Casmaron, separated by the Obari Ocean.
At one time, central Garund was the heart of civilisation in the hemisphere. It was a major territory of the cyclopes, who once ruled all of Golarion. Their Empire perished before (or possibly because of) the fall of the Starstone, which created the Inner Sea. Later, the citadels of the Shory flew through the sky, until their kingdom also failed. Now, much of the continent is uncharted and uncivilised, but numerous ancient ruins await bold explorers.
Today, there are also some highly developed nations including Osirion, Katapesh, and Holomog. Despite the civilizations along the outer edges of the landmass, it remains a dangerous and wild place. Whether one is exploring the unmapped jungles of the Mwangi Expanse, traversing the magic-blasted Mana Wastes between Nex and Geb, or braving the permanent hurricane called the Eye of Abendego on the continent’s western coast, there are many ways to die throughout Garund
