“Across the sea to the south of Imperia is the dry, arid land of the Southern Expanse, where sparkling cities adorn its coastline. Not much is known about this desert region, but it is rumored to be a source of dark magic.
Even after the Great War, Imperia’s presence is still felt in the Southern Expanse, as the land’s history has been forever altered. The grand architecture and mystique of the major cities have never been fully restored, and now there are few heavily populated areas an many chose to abandon the cities in fear of another Imperial attack.” – League Training Manual, page 13
The Southern Expanse is one of the four regions in the world of Gladius and is the homeland of Gwazi. The expanse is sparse desert country that appears to have been modeled on the Middle East. Dervishes and insects can be recruited here.
