Mt Dekim – Largest volcano in Aurogway. Located in the country of Aboria. Is responsible for Aboria’s mixed climate systems.
The gell – A large peninsula in Nagastako that contains an unusual valley. Both are labeled the gell, since the valley takes up most of the peninsula. Sometimes called the Valley of Statues. The gell is covered by fog which only ever lifts for a short time during low tide.Over the years the gell fog has been classified as a runic animal due to its unusual characteristics. (See gell fog under Runic Animals)
Thousand mile crater – Ibur and Wabamida in ancient times used to be connected. Now a massive crater separates the two. It has long since been submerged by the Kitoan-Banyava straight, but at low tide, the rims of the crater become land bridges connecting the two continents. It is unknown if this crater was formed due to meteor impact or some runic phenomena.

Aurogway Under– (including Hanging Tower Prison Maze)
Hanging Tower prisons – Huge underground labyrinth thought to have been created by immortals. Spans continents, if one were able to find their way, one could walk from one continent to another. It has twelve entrances, but only one exit, all are one way portals causing some to speculate that the prison may be indeed be in another dimension.
Entrances appear in the major countries. More specifically, the countries built their capitals over these entrances. It is used as a place to put criminals. Criminals are given the chance to return to society if they find the exit at the bottom of the tower. So far only eight criminals have returned. They were given a single wish as a reward, but in turn must obey and fight for their country. They did not know that they are bound to their country upon exiting the tower. It is a tightly kept secret.
Architecture of prison is strange. It has ten levels, each going further into the earth. Each level is smaller than the last, and because the structure is suspended above a massive cavern spanning for miles, it resembles an upside-down pyramid. Often referred to as the Hanging Tower or Reversed Tower, inside most of the structures, such as stairs, are upside-down as well. Other structures are strangely placed on the walls or at angles and sometimes great chasms are come across randomly. Whomever built the tower had a very unusual taste in architecture, most of which makes little to no sense.

Gell fog – Fog that is best known for covering the gell except at low tide. Though it is found in a few other places in Aurogway, it never accumulates in such quantities except for the gell. One is cautioned not to stop moving if gell fog is encountered. A layer of condensation will quickly cover the skin and begin to solidify first into a jelly-like substance and then into a stone like material, in effect, turning a person into a living statue. Scholars have recently classified gell fog as a variant species of slime.
