From Labyrinthe Wiki
The continent of Ishma lies west of the Empire, across the Tigrean Sea. For several generations some who have fled the Empire have settled here and thus is sometimes called the Land of the Banished. It is home to the Ishmaic Confederacy and is also known as the Land of the Seven Winds, since the winds of magic are said to flow out from the Great Sink, or as called in the local tongue, the Athfash Ban Mir.
Much of Ishma is an inhospitable desert, filled with the wonders of lost civilisations, half buried cities, strange creatures and a preponderance of powerful and dangerous Elemental beings such as Athfanal, Efreeti and Pashas who are sustained by the Winds of Magic.
