Geography

Limestone hums in eastern Ternos

Like much of the southeastern Sea of Velar, east Ternos' bedrock is largely composed of limestone, giving it a distinctive karst landscape. Low plateaux in the interior of the province are broken up into small mountains and rough hills approaching the coast, much like the Andamonian Olahu Peninsula. The eastern half of the province is well-vegetated, with dense tropical rainforest on the coast and lush grassland further inland. The density of vegetation falls with declining soil fertility as distance from the coast increases. In the west, karst topography gives way to sandstone underlying the semiarid scrubland of the Ternosi desert.
