The Wilds are a remote part of the Midlands, distant from most of the other peoples of the Midlands and from their troubles.
The wilds spread all across the southern portion of the Midlands. It is an open grassland, named not after the land, but after the people who live in it. It consists mostly of unchanging, open, flat plains with tall grass. Trees are few and far between, mostly birch and alder in clusters along streams. Crossing logs (with no hand rope) are used as bridges across the streams. It is home to a number of native peoples, including the Mud People. The Kings' Port lay to the west of the Wilds, less than a week's walk south-west from the Mud People's village. No one lived in the west portion of the Wilds near the boundary.
