The Wildspire Waste is an inhospitable land where a parched desert meets a swamp. Water from the Ancient Forest feeds the swamp, and seeps into the desert's rare watering holes. Vegetation has sprung up around what little water the desert holds, and the desert's ants have built massive spires in the sand. As a result of two vastly different ecosystems located next to each other, this region is home to hardy beasts that thrive in both environments. These beasts include the strange bird Kulu-Ya-Ku, the stone-skinned Barroth, and the swamp-dwelling Jyuratodus.
