The world which we call Dirt is a fascinating place that, despite the large continents, is mostly water.
The primary continental masses, those which are livable, are in the norther hemisphere with the continent known as Bind just reaching to the equator.
The largest known land mass sits beyond the North Hoar Ridge and stretches over Hoar North, the northern polar icecap. Of this land very little is known as it is a region of bitter cold, vast glaciers, unmapped mountain ranges and ice fields.
Bind is the largest of the populated masses with the second largest being the continent variously known as Heinelina and The Prelates to name but two.
The climate is, perhaps, a little on the cool side at times, though the very far south of Bind, near the equator, benefit from warm winds and sea currents. Large areas are prone to low precipitation and this includes areas like Jerr-Vone in the north of bind and the eastern third of Bind referred to as The Eastern Plains.
Winters in the north can be cold and the far north will see snow for much of the winter season when the majority of precipitation is seen. It is rare that snow is seen below the Taken Line, especially near the coastal areas, but it has happened in the odd century.
Dirt has never been a heavily forested world and although there are great forests, notably the Weld Ormete Nord on the Bekon-Coldor border in north Bind, open moorland and heathland predominates. This may contribute to the surprisingly low population of the world where resources of wood and minerals can be difficult to obtain in quantity.
Advancements in invention and medication have been problematic over the millennia and constant warring between empires has seen the near total collapse of society several times with advancements being forgotten and populations becoming isolated and easily suppressed.

Variously known as Heinelina and The Prelates, Dwy-Earde is a large continent to the west of the Yonder Sea.

Orl-Earde sits to the east of the Yonder Sea and for many, many millennia has been known as Bind. It is the largest habitable continent on Dirt, though with the lowest population density.
Other Major Features
Aside from the two largest continents, there are several islands, the supposed mythical third continent, the poles and the oceans
Often thought of as the driest place on Dirt, Jerr-Vone is, surprisingly, in the northwest of Orl-Earde, to the west of Bekon.
The Sand Hills
Often thought of as the home of the Draig yr Anailr, the Sand Hills are the most northerly region of the Eastern Plains
The Eastern Plains
The largest defined area of Orl-Earde (Bind), the Eastern Plains has a long and difficult history

More often joined than separated, these two small countries are in one of the more beautiful areas of the southern states
The Isle of Hope
Set of the south coast of Orl-Earde, this large and beautiful island is bathed in the warm current from the Missing Sea. However, it has spent much of its history unpopulated.
The most populated and fertile area of Bind, Bekon lies in the northern half of the continent and includes the regions of Hertenesse and Tharkenss and the Black Hills.
