Nilo.png


Nilo is a continent located in southern Erdas. It is similar to Africa in culture and appearance, and is ruled by a High Chieftain. Cabaro and Uraza originate from here.

Description

Nilo's landscapes include deserts, jungles, and savannas. Zebras, wildebeest, hyena, and several different types of big cats live on the continent. Big cats are often seen hunting at night. Water and food are both scarce, but despite the harsh living conditions, many people thrive in Nilo. Houses are often made from mud, animal skins, and thatched roofs. Nilo is known for its export of coffee and its warm climate.

As mentioned throughout the books, Nilo has many myths and legends. These include the legend of the Rain Dancer and the Stormspeaker, and Kovo the Ape's folktale mentioned in The Book of Shane: Vendetta. The continent also houses The Evertree, the most important location in all of Erdas.
