Exalted: Tales of the Dreaming Sea
Anzu Valley is a vibrant, sparsely settled expanse that covers hundreds of miles of the Southeast. The deep, rolling valley winds through the jutting, verdant spires that surround and define it. Many believe the valley was shaped by an ancient battle during the time of the Primordials. In the vale itself wild beasts are very common and some of the most dangerous predators of Creation reside there resulting in most towns and villages resting in the mountain-like peaks with only a few well-fortified towns actually inside the low valley.
The valley gets it name from the great behemoth Anzugada, a giant, eagle-like creatured adorned in armor and jewelry that considers the valley its domain. Most settlements in area make regular offerings to Anzugada to keep it at bay.
