The Shattered Orb is a hazardous environment found within the Explorable Region of the Gloaming.

Background[edit | edit source]

The residents of the Gloaming believe that this deadly terrain once housed a great, hollow sphere of glass, more than a mile in diameter, that had shattered under unknown circumstances. This theory is proven by the fact that many pieces of concave, rounded glass and jagged shards cover up the entire area. The surface area of the glass shards spans about 20 miles all across, with most of the pieces located near its central point. While many of the pieces are small enough to pick up with just one hand, others have been known to be as large as 10-20 ft. across.

Anyone found traversing this region must make a Speed defense roll every hour or so, with those who fail suffering 2 points of piercing or cutting damage from the glass shards.[1]
