At the edges of the midlands, that most of us midlanders call the world, lies the great edge as people call it. Encircling the midlands is a mountain range, of altitudes between 13,000 m to 16,000 m high (approx. 42,000-52,000ft). None of the few explorer midlanders have returned from attempting a crossing, likely not having the luck to cross twice, or the nerve to cross twice. Even the clouds fail to cross this divide.
Few explorers have indeed arrived from west and eastlands, but choose to not return. The only individuals with knowledge of crossing and of the west and eastlands are the Garif, whom are apparently immune to the cold. The lack of air is another matter, a secret these people keep in order to control the flow and spread of influence between the lands.
One family from Gabrycg attempted crossing the great edge via airship, however it was soon apparent even the best airships have trouble flying at these altitudes. As the airship is believed to have crashed, following a retrieved emergency long range flare that was apparently fired.
